What Has Smoking Cigarettes Done For You Lately?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Smoking cigarettes is so out of style, and if you are a victim of the tobacco world, I highly encourage you to quit smoking for your own good. Yea, I know, I sound exactly like the rest of the world telling you in what you should do with your life. Ok, it is your life, and you can live it however you please, but when you are sitting next to me, her, him, she, then it becomes a problem, because we don’t smoke.

I totally hate the smell of cigarettes. It makes me sick to my stomach. It makes me nauseated and I have hard time breathing. So, please, next time you decide to smoke your cigarette at the bus stop, the train station, or even on your lunch break, consider quit smoking for him and her, but most importantly, yourself. I can’t tell you what to do; I can only voice my opinion. You best believe I intend on letting you know how much cigarette smells bothers me.

What has smoking cigarettes done for you lately?

Let’s be honest here. Be real with yourself, not me. What has smoking cigarettes really done for you, except make you cough, make you stink, and make you spend about $50 per week? Damn, do you know what I can do with 50 bucks per week? Do you know what you can do with that extra 50 bucks per week? That can buy you an n outfit. That can help pay for your next water bill or phone bill. That can go towards your children’s college fund. That can go towards a romantic date with your partner or spouse. There are a million different things you can do with an extra 50 bucks per week, but you decide to smoke a cigarette and kill yourself. That’s a dumb move, I’m sorry.

Your family probably tells you the same thing I’m telling you, and believe me; they really wish you could stop smoking cigarettes. After all, they love you, right? Of course they want the best for you. Shoot, I want the best for you and I don’t even know you.

Your life is too precious to sit around and waste it on something like tobacco cigarettes. Take your life back right now and quit your smoking habit. You will be ever grateful you did, because your life will change and your health will change, because when you do quit, your life has just been added, not decreased. Don’t make you family grieve for you. Let them rejoice with you.
