The Scoop On Smoking from ACSH: what every teen should know about tobacco
Reading all of these statistics, it is all too easy to forget that tobacco affects hundreds of thousands of real teenagers every day.
Click on one of the links below to read the stories of teens sharing their real-life experiences with tobacco and how it has affected their lives. Some are smokers, some are former smokers and some are friends or family of smokers. Some know the harmful effects it has on the body and quit, some know but can't quit because they can't overcome their addiction, and others just don't care and continue to smoke. What they all have in common, however, is that they have been affected by tobacco and want to speak out to share their stories so that others teenagers can learn from their experiences.
