don’t smoke please its bad for everyone i am doing a powerpoint on why not to and i came across this. my dad smokes and its terrible! i can’t make you quit you have to do that for yourself. my dad tries to quit but whenever he tries he epically fails and is always grumpy while he is doing it. right now he is trying to quit because he had a tooth pulled (fortunatly not because of smoking) and now he can’t get any nicotine in the hole. he hasn’t smoked in almost a week and i’m so proud of him! (btw cigarettes have so many different poisins including straight out arcinic* so it is really bad, someday you should look up what else are in them
