Only wealth, health goes up in smoke

Friday, June 01, 2018

Cigarette smoking is injurious to health as per the statutory warning message. However, so many people take to smoking and spoil their health in the process. In airports, a special enclosure is made to encourage the smokers to pursue smoking in a closed place. Even though the prices of cigarettes are increased in every budget, the number of smokers is not coming down drastically. One more cause for accepting this cigarette smoking habit is seeing their super stars smoking on the silver screen. The caution is totally ignored and we see the role model super stars smoking cigarettes. After all, we are slowly caught in the death trap for a pleasure lasting few minutes. Again, our monthly earnings are unnecessarily diverted to such a bad vice. Instead, that amount can be invested on children's education or for the welfare of the family. There lies your will power to abstain from smoking. Even children follow footsteps of their parents. It is time to take care of life from the vagaries of bad vices. Life is really precious. And we should educate children to take the right route and not to get spoiled from the young age. Prevention is better than cure is absolutely true.
