Persuasive Speech on Why You Shouldn't Smoke
Did you know cigarette smoke contains over 4,800 chemicals, 69 of which are known to cause cancer. Smoking is directly responsible for approximately 90 percent of lung cancer deaths and approximately 80-90 percent of COPD (emphysema and chronic bronchitis) deaths
Fun Fact
Today I hope I am able to convince you to never smoke or to stop smoking. Also make you aware of the many negative affects it can have on you and the people around you.
Smoking can affect many things. These things being your wallet, your body, and your appearance.
Smoking cigarettes is a very expensive hobby. The average price for a box of cigarettes in Texas is 7.24$, that's about 700$ a year if you're smoking at the most 5 cigarettes a day

Smoking is a big commitment. Most smokers have to take hours out of their day just to smoke. Not only that but if you do smoke it takes a lot of dollars out of your wallet
Not only will the cost of cigarettes pile up but most likely medical bills will follow. Because smoking can cause so many cancers and diseases you might end up having to add in the cost of the medication or hospital bills it took or still takes to fix you.
Since the cost is so high it will stop you from doing things that you love and would like to do because you can’t afford it.
Not only can smoking cigarettes take a large toll on your wallet but on your body as well. Cigarettes have about 4,800 chemicals and 69 of those can cause cancer.
Among current smokers, chronic lung disease accounts for 73 percent of smoking-related conditions. Even smokers who have quit, chronic lung disease accounts for 50 percent of smoking-related conditions.
Not only can smoking cause many diseases and cancers there are also many immediate effects of just inhaling one cigarette. This includes toxic gases such as formaldehyde and ammonia immediately putting your immune system on alert, causing allover inflammation. At the same time, carbon monoxide from the smoke is starting to build up in your blood, limiting your body's ability to transport oxygen to your vital organs
Smoking can effect your body but it can also affect your feeling and emotions.
girlshealth.gov says that Nicotine makes you feel good when you're smoking, but it can make you anxious, nervous, moody, and depressed after you smoke.
So we now all know how smoking can effect your body and your wallet but there's one last thing that people tend to care about more than anything...
Your appearance is effected dramatically after smoking. One the biggest things effected is your teeth. After smoking just one cigarette your teeth are lined with a faint brown film. Over time nicotine can stain teeth turning them an ugly yellow color. So in addition to the escalating costs of buying and smoking your cigarettes, add in the cost of tooth whitening
A 1985 study came up with the term Smoker's Face to describe certain facial characteristics, such as wrinkles, gauntness, and a gray appearance of the skin, caused by smoking. Cigarette smoke contains carbon monoxide, which displaces the oxygen in your skin, and nicotine, which reduces blood flow, leaving skin dry and discolored. Cigarette smoking also depletes many nutrients, including vitamin C, which helps protect and repair skin damage.
The 4,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke can trigger the destruction of collagen and elastin. These are the fibers that give your skin its strength and elasticity. Smoking or even being around secondhand smoke can lead to many wrinkles, saggy skin and lines around your mouth.
I hope i was able to convenience you to quick smoking cigarettes or to never smoke them again. I also hope you know the many side effects to smoking.
Just remember that smoking is a BIG commitment and it can effect your wallet, body, and appearance.
So please don't put those 4,800 chemicals in your body and keep your body healthy.
