The teenage smoking is an alarming increase nowadays.The reasons fo r the increase are varied.One reason is that teeagers have more pocket money than ever before,which makes it possible to buy cigarettes possible.Another is the influence of cigarette advertising.But the main reason perhaps is that teenagers have a strong desire to be like adults.They view the cigarette as a symbol of maturity.And some parents behaviour is also responsible for the increase in teenager smoking.

I started smoking when I was 13 years old. I have 8 kids. One is 18 and smokes and one is 17 and smokes. I do not like the idea that they smoke but it is their choice. They do not smoke around me at all. They do not live with me either. Where I live it is illegal to possess smokes before the age of 18. I think that once you are an adult you have the freedom to choose. I like the law being that you have to be 18 but it will not stop the teenagers from smoking. I also think that teens start smoking because of friends more so than parents.
