Seeing Through the Smoke
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     We've all seen the ads on TV. We know smoking is very harmful. Yet cigarette companies are getting richer. People are dying of lung cancer and heart attacks. Many people are still smoking. Are you one of them?
 
2     There are many reasons for not smoking. Did you know that smoking can make you ugly? It makes your teeth yellow. It can even stain the skin on your fingers. Smoking shrinks the blood vessels in your skin. So it doesn't get enough oxygen. This causes wrinkles. If you smoke, you will look much older than you really are.
 
3     Smoking makes you smell bad. Your clothes will smell like smoke. Your hair will smell like an old, dirty ashtray. Your breath will smell bad, too.
