Smoking

Be in the know...

Maybe you’re into sports, or maybe you’re a traditional dancer. How important is it to have healthy lungs to be at your best? If you are playing competitive hockey, you can bet your opponent will have an advantage over you if you’re using tobacco. Healthy lungs are important for everyone, and the sad thing is that smoking kills. It kills! It may not be today, tomorrow, or next year, but over time smoking will affect every part of your body. Wanna know something? The billionaires behind the tobacco companies spend most of their time trying to get YOU to smoke. That’s their whole plan, get you hooked when you’re young and supposedly don’t know any better, so you are addicted your whole life. Don’t let “the man” try and bring you down, cause you do know better. Quitting smoking can be hard, but it’s totally possible. Check out these links for more info and some tips:
