In seventh grade I started hanging out with a few cowboy types. My father chews tobacco and did back then. But chew never interested me much. A few of my friends dipped, thus I dipped too. The warning labels on the cans of smokeless didn't appear until 1986, and I remember I didn't need to be a certain age to buy it. I even won a trip to the Daytona 500 in 1991 from the makers of my dip. 6 million children (9%) live with at least 1 parent who abuses alcohol or other drugs.

Tobacco plants consume nutrients at a higher rate than most crops.
Cigarette-manufacturing machines use up to four miles of paper an hour to roll and package cigarettes.
Cigarette butts are washed into rivers, lakes and the ocean where they are eaten by birds, animals and fish. While the global share of agricultural land used for tobacco growing is less than 1%, its impact on global deforestation is 2–4%, making a visible footprint for climate change.
They can also cause fires. Save your way of life and try your best to help prevent unnecessary incidents from happening
