I think to fully put a stop to this addiction we first need to understand how this happens. If we stop people smoking then the crisis will be smaller. The truth is it happens because of various reasons. A major factor is having someone in the house who smokes. The longer you see someone smoke that us close to you the more likely you are to begin. Some children or teens may also feel that smoking makes them appear more sophisticat . Not just to adults but peers allowing them to fit in. It allows them to show adults that they are independant. Often teens idolize actors, singers and people in the media. This also can lead to copying them. Finally children and teens are just curious.
