“A cigarette is a pinch of tobacco rolled in a paper, with a fire on one end and a fool on the other!”
- George Bernard Shaw
Putting that thing in your mouth and puffing it in and out, you might find it glorious and of course pleasurable. But how hilarious it is, that You’re going against the nature of dying naturally!
Three words, only three, to describe your self-harming act, -I PITY YOU!
Are you trying to get away from your life problems? Well, you’re certainly doing a great job getting away with it, just by, DYING!
Hundreds and thousands of commercials, articles, public speaking programs, etc. all go on deaf ears! In fact, the plea of your family or your loved ones have no effect on you, what-so-ever!
The coughs, colds, wheezing and asthma are just the beginning, if you talk about the diseases that you’re DEFINITELY going to acquire! Smoking can cause fatal diseases such as pneumonia, emphysema, cancer of the lungs, mouth, nose, throat, oesophagus, pancreas, kidney, liver, bladder, bowel, ovary, cervix, bone marrow, and stomach.
Smoking causes 84% of deaths from lung cancer and 83% of deaths from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
I know a few of the people consume it just for fun and to show, don’t know to whom that they are grown up, exactly I’m talking about the teens. Trust me, nobody will accolade you for this major step if you take. It will be all regrets at the end.
CREATING AWARENESS and GUIDING YOU GUYS WAS MY CHOICE and MOTIVE.
CHOOSING TO STOP SMOKING and START LIVING IS YOURS!
I HOPE THESE POETIC LINES WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE !!
“SMOKING WHILE LIVING, CHOKING WHILE DYING.”
WAS HAPPY AS ONE COULD BE,
LIVING, LAUGHING AND EARNING, YOU SEE.
THEN, CAME THE TIME WHEN I WAS DEPRESSED,
LOOSING FAMILY, LOVE, MONEY, AND EVERYTHING ELSE.
I THOUGHT, AT SOME TIME EVERYBODY NEEDS AN ADDICTION,
MY LIFE TURNED INTO A SAD-TRAGIC FICTION,
I STARTED SMOKING LIKE THERE’S NO TOMORROW,
I PREFERRED CHOKING BY CIGARETTE THAN SORROW,
HAD I HOLDED ON TO HARDWORK,
HAD I SAT AND DISCUSSED THE PROBLEMS,
I WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN DYING,
I WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN CRYING!
I SHOULD HAVE LIVED RATHER THAN SMOKED,
‘CAUSE NOW IT’S MY LIFE THAT’S BEEN ROBBED!
