Don't be apart of the negative statistics.
Perhaps a lot of this information pertaining to cigarette smoking has been rehashed several times before to you, but like most information we learn we normally do not retain the majority of it. As a part of this informative speech i would also like to point out that it is important to relay information again and again.

I believe cigarette smoking is a horrible thing to consider doing and I hope this information has provided you with knowledge but I also do not want this to be perceived as an intrusion on someone's free judgement
