Cigarette addiction in 17-year-old teenagers in Guayaquil
Have you ever heard about any kind of addiction? First I will define what a cigarette is. Second I will introduce what the cigarette addiction is from a doctor opinion and apsychologist opinion. Third I will compare the substance that a cigarette possesses from several sources. Fourth I will explain the consequences that the cigarette brings to teenagers. Then I will show the results of my survey made to these teenagers in Guayaquil. Later I will recommend some tips that can be done to solve the problems to theses minors. Finally I will give my opinion of my essay.
Inthis essay I am going to talk about the cigarette addiction a very common addiction around the world that affects kids, teens, adults and older adults. We should restated that there are several type of this addiction we have the active smoker the ones that smokes everyday one or might 5 fags per day, and the passive smoker the ones that do not smoke but they are surrounded of smokers so they smellthe smoke that a cigarette left.
