Smoking is bad for people. Everyone knows and accepts this. New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg proposes to extend New York’s smoking ban to all offices, bars and restaurants. Read about it in the Houston Chronicle.
So why are so many young people taking up this nasty habit? One example: Smokers make the air foul at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX, clogging up entrances to building as they poison themselves and letting the stench inside as students go in and out.
A variety of motivations no doubt enter the minds of gullible teenagers, not the least of which is the feeble attempted crackdown on underage smokers; however, one fact remains central: smoking is a vile habit that no person with any logical sense would fall victim to.
