Parenting, Children and Teens - Spotlighting Teen Issues for Teens
Smoking and tobacco use may seem cool. It may seem like everyone is doing it so it’s no big deal. The truth is it is a big deal. Tobacco is addictive and using it can affect you for the rest of your life — even shorten your life. We all know that tobacco use causes cancer and emphysema and other long-term problems. But, it also has many short-term effects. So before you light up or put a plug of chewing tobacco in your mouth, take a look at some of the common myths and learn the facts. Then you can decide your future.
