Stop before you Start!

By the end of this story you will be convinced that smoking should be illegal.


I believe smokes should be illegal because smokes cause  many diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Smokers are 25 times more likely to die from lung cancer than non smokers. Four out of five of lung cancer deaths are related to smoking. 5000 people die each year in New Zealand from smoking.That is why smokes should be illegal.


Smokes have many things that you would not think are inside them like nicotine, paint, fuel, batteries, toilet cleaner and candle wax there is over 4000 chemicals in 1 tobacco smoke. That is why smokes should be illegal.


Smokes affect the brain and heart by narrowing the arteries which leads to blood clots and causes strokes.That is why smokes should be illegal.


Quit for yourself, your whanau, your friends and your pocket. Improve not only your health but the health of your loved ones too. Get more out of life!


Ready to stop smoking? You don’t have to do it alone. Get to your local GP and ask them for help!!!!
