Quit smoking and enjoy better health

SMOKING once picked up is very difficult to quit. Most teenagers take up smoking as a matter of fun but are soon trapped and find it difficult to give up. Only extensive awareness campaign is a way out of a compulsive smoking habit. We should include the subject of smoking and its ill effects on our health in school textbooks . I can cite my example. I took up smoking while I was in high school and smoked for about 20 years before I gave it up after lot of trials and tribulations in 2008. I have been living a tobacco-free life since then and I feel much better than any time in the past. Now I encourage others to quit smoking. My real life experience encouraged a few of my friends and acquaintances to quit smoking. Our health is our greatest wealth and we should take care of it by saying 'no' to tobacco.
