Other "You Said It"
Topics in Body:

Here's what other kids had to say:

NEVR smoke. My grandma smoked all her life, got lung cancer, and died. Yeah. From SMOKING. My dad quit a little too late and has had lung probs in the past few years. Smoking leads to health problems, emotional problems, and family problems. Don't smoke.
--IzzyKid60

Smoking. When I hear that word I cry. It may seem cool but actually its a dumb thing. It can lead to lung cancer and the cure is very expensive. And probably it can lead to death. Also it can leave you a empty wallet. One pack of cigarettes are about 10 dollars or more. Smoking has no good don't try it please! :(
--Lamisa12

LunatheVamp, if you want some help, then sit down and share your feelings with your sister, tell her you are worried. She might not realize how much her actions have scared you. Ask " Are you aware of the terrible things that could happen?" Perhaps she'll finally come to her senses and quit smoking! Let me know how it plays out, If that doesn't work sit down together as a family with her and your parents and then talk it through.
--Aphrodite13

Smoking is really bad for your health! My dad is serving in SEAL team .. and when he visits he always says he is in the team for a reason.
--DLPL

Don't smoke. It's very bad for your heath. It increases the risk of lung cancer and gum disease, lots more but if I wrote them it would take up the whole page. You'll be surprised when I tell you what's in a cigarette. There is... Let's see. Tar, car exaust, rocket fuel, wow. Lots more. One small cigarette contains over 4000 chemicals. Do not smoke, guys.
--StopDrgs67

See, I be like " Nah, man, you crazy! I ain't want no stank breath!
--Aphrodite13

Though it makes me curious, I never wanted to know how it feels like. DID YOU KNOW THAT the founder of Marlboro died of lung cancer? I bet you know the reason why! :P
--Jomarch689

i hate smoking because you could die from it and if someone asked me if i wanted a ciggarette i would say'no and you shouldn't smoke eiter'.
--jmullins

It's not just the health problems, (but that is a big deal), but think about how much money it costs if you smoke twice a day. That's about a pack a week, I think, and one pack is how much $?
--ajyos12

its groose and deathly one time and touve sined your death warent
--lioniss

Just ONE cigarette can damage your lungs! It's not like, have one glass of wine and not get drunk,it's have ONLY ONE and it hurts your lungs. If someone asked me to try one, I'd say,"No, I don't want to die like you are in like 3 years!" OK, that's kind of harsh, but you know what I mean.
--kwpopstar

I would probably say,"My parents would kill me, and besides, I don't feel like it," while thinking,"NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS!" It would give the person a reason not to try and offer one again.
