Giving up smoki…

Mark Twain

Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I’ve done it thousands of times
-Mark Twain

This quote, by Mark Twain tells us how addictive smoking is. We all know that quitting smoking is not an easy thing, but of we don’t, we can die of [insert one of the hundreds of deadly diseases due to smoking here].

There are 2 BILLION people in this world, who are going through the same condition as Mark Twain was- addiction. So why even start smoking in the first place, when we already know the result?


A Limerick

“There was a young lady named Mae
Who smoked without stopping all day;
As pack followed pack,
Her lungs first turned black,
And eventually rotted away.”

-Edward Gorey (Writer, Illustrator, Poet)

This is a limerick written by Edward Gorey. Within 5 lines, he has described the life of a lady called Mae, who smoked…and eventually died. It’s funny, how what’s happened to Mae happens (or will soon happen) to 2 billion people in this world.
