One in three adolescents who experiment with tobacco products will end up addicted to nicotine by the time he is twenty years old. If current trends continue, some five million kids who are currently under eighteen years of age will die one day because they chose to smoke cigarettes as adolescents. Smoking kills. Kids know that, yet every day in the United States, nearly 3,000 young people become new tobacco users. Why? This book addresses this question as it examines reasons teens smoke, the consequences of tobacco use, and the sometimes ugly facts about smoking, chewing, and sniffing. Sidebars, easy-to-understand statistics, and real-life case studies make this an informative, interesting read for teens who want to make an informed decision about using tobacco products.
