Hello! My name is Bailey Thompson and this is my friend Lisa. She used her knowledge of tobacco to stay healthy!
She was first introduced to tobacco when her mother was arguing with her about her grades.
After storming out of the house, her friend Tyler asked her if she wanted a cigarette to calm her down. She knew the possible consequences such as bad breath, damaged lungs, and even death. Since she knew all of this, she said she'd rather walk around town to blow off steam
If cigarette smoking continues at the current rate among youth in this country, 5.6 million of today's Americans younger than 18 will die early from a smoking-related illness.(That's about 1 of every 13)
Lisa also remembered that smoking causes 85% of lung cancer mortality. About half of all smokers will eventually be killed by their habit.
Thanks to her knowledge of the harmful effects of tobacco, she remained healthy!
