"Okay, sounds awesome. Why don't you come to my house tomorrow night."
"Yeah we should have a movie night."
I can't believe you smoked! You are unbelievable. You're grounded for a year. End of story!!
I'm so disappointed. I can't trust you anymore and you're never hanging out with your friends alone.
"Its a shame thats he got a cigarette addiction. We could've been friends."
"He's such a loser. He could not handle his cigs then and he can't handle them now..."
"Oh my god! All those nasty rumours about him are true."
"Yeah okay. I guess your parents are gonna be home soon. So they will smell the smoke on you."
"That would suck if you could not hang with us."
"Okay, dude. I totally understand. My parents would crucify me too."
Cigarettes? But what about all the short term effects we learnt about in HPE class: increased heart rate, higher blood pressured, reduced oxygen circulation, stained teeth and fingers, trouble breathing, nausea and vomiting.
But what if I keep smoking and I suffer from the long term effects: nicotine addiction, respiratory and circulatory system diseases, cancer, reduced fitness, premature aging, yellowing eyes and tooth decay, diabetes, decreased life expectancy by up to ten years
