It is a fact that a lot of people smoke and unfortunately cigarettes will always be popular among majority of people. And that is ok, because everyone can do whatever they think it suits them.
Even though we can often see a sign or read that smoking is deadly and bad for our health, it seems like people don’t care about that. What is even worse is that some of them would rather choose cigarettes over food.
If you don’t want to eat, that’s your problem, but there are some statistics showing that a lot of parents are ready to give up their food and the food for their children in order to buy cigarettes. That’s not normal.
This problem is especially popular among the families who are not in a good financial situation, where they think they have “no choice” because they simply cannot afford to buy both food and cigarettes.
And that’s why a lot of children are starving or have nothing to wear, because their parents put smoking as their priority.
What is worrying is that you can find a lot of similar families in economically stable countries such as Great Britain.
Big part of their income they spend on cigarettes, while they are neglecting basic necessities such as food, clothes, school books and toiletries.
This will affect children on so many levels, because they will not be able to live their life the way they’re supposed to. They will not have the chance for the intellectual growth and to stay healthy.
People think that the only solution to stop this is to provide smokers some sort of aggressive rehabilitation where they will have a chance to quit smoking, because otherwise situation may worsen.
