I have a brother who smokes and his (wife is) having a baby. We have both tried to tell him to stop but he doesn't listen. One thing I learned (from) your presentation is how to talk to some who smokes and you want them to stop. It seemed like my brother understood what I was trying to tell him and it surprised me because he didn't get mad at all when I told him that maybe him not having enough money came from his smoking habit.

I will stop smoking from now on because I learned that the younger you are to pick up smoking the greater chances I will continue smoking when I am older. Paola
One thing I learned is that smoking causes more damage than I thought. I knew that by smoking you can get lung cancer but I know now that you can cause more damage to yourself. One thing that I will do is try to make sure my little brother and sister don't grow up smoking. Mariana
I learned about that it may not seem like much but little by little smoking does it's effect on the body. Also it could be expensive. Jose.Other letters just suprised me:
I will not smoke because it's not healthy for me and I won't smoke because I still want to talk and not burp. Eric( When talking about cancer of the voicebox, I tell them that in the past if your voicebox was removed, you learned how to speak again by sucking in air and burping it up to talk.)
One thing I learned was that there are 30% of cancer's caused by smoking, and that if you get cancer in your lips they can take them off and put fake one's on. Deisy( I tell the story of Peck who had lip cancer. He was given new lips by a plastic surgeon but he had to be careful not to drool when drinking since his lips were numb-like having novacaine from a dentist. Peck also told me that it took all the fun out of kissing).
Every day I speak to smokers struggling to quit and each one will say the easiest way to quit smoking is to never start. Someday I hope I'm out of business and the next generation will not have to struggle with a nicotine addiction like me and so many other smokers.
