Thinks of all the money saved by the government on welfare payments, pensions payments and social care saved by people dying prematurely of smoking related disease and not living to pensionable age.
Humans are such flawed creatures. I sat down with a group of 14 year old smokers and worked out the stuff they could buy if they saved the money they spent on fags. It started getting to fast cars after saving for 15 years and one kid said "I don't want to live that long, life stinks, I'd be really old by then anyway."The next day I caught the same kids smoking. Money is not a reason to stop if your life stinks and you can't visualise your own future. These kids were all for "live for today, die young, stay beautiful." So sad, but true.
But i rally want to any big advice ?
If you want to stop someone smoking, the most effective way would be to encourage them to become close to someone who is dying from lung cancer caused by smoking. They'd have to be hell-bent on self-destruction to continue after that.
