Is that all we got to show & teach the children around us?
I have no idea, who in his family smokes, be it his father, mother or others, but, who-so-ever does so, is certainly not setting any good example for the child. Rather, such an act, is not setting any better example for our children! The question is, what can we do about this? And the answer is something which can be best answered by those, who smoke! I don't smoke and, I am glad that, I will not be one of those to set any wrong examples to the youth. For those who do smoke, please think once ... how much more of education would it take for you to understand that, 'smoking kills' ... while it is clearly mentioned on the cigarette packs ... yet when you continue to smoke is a clear example of how our society has failed often to motivate our follow beings from choosing to live a better life and to make our world a better place to live.
For all those who continue to smoke, please do at the cost of your own health and to the health of your own children. If possible, I'd want the government to ban smoking in all public places, and all possible medias, including cinema, from where, non-smokers could possibly even get a feeling of trying their first puff.
PS: the photo used in this article is NOT to promote smoking, rather, to warn its effects on our youth
