It is very hard to try to talk to young people about smoaking, first whatever an older person tries to tell them that they will end up using oxeygon while sitting in a wheelchair due to their lungs unable to function they have no concept of age, only when they reach that point will they say I wish I had stoped smoking when I was young, of course even quitting after smoking 10 years will have an effect, so I have talked to many people who even though they had stoped smoking 20 years ago, can still end up carrying around an oxgeyon tank, or using a wheelchair while they carry around their oxgeyon.

Very good, love it.  Is anyone aware, though, of the tremendous pressure that the movie industry enjoys by way of the “Big Tobacco” boys and their mountain of cash.  When our young people see their ‘heroes’ on the giant screen sucking and puffing so romantically….and pocketing big bucks for doing it.  Not Fair!
