Truly, it is quite difficult to quit of smoking. Maybe the longer the smoker is, and the more difficult the quitting is. But I think it should be much easier when he just began to smoke, since it was not a must-to-do thing yet.
This is true.

If we made the no-smoking become a style of life or even a fasion, then we could change young people easily.
Well, I don't think I would tell my kids whether smoking is right or wrong. It's because they don't give a ***n if it's right or wrong when they want to do it, to me. The more you forbid it, the more they thirsts for a desire of breaking your rules. Don't you remember a time that you crave yourself to break certain rules??? Well, I have . The best ways, to me, are take them to a hospital so they could have a talk with smoking people who are in treatment for certain diseases because of smoking, show them pictures of diseases that cause by smoking, spend time with them more to keep an eye on them, tell them how many bad chemicals a cigarette has. The last one is quite uncertain since some kids are weirdos (no offense, mommies and daddies out there). I'm afraid they might say, "cool! I'm a living experiment of smoking. They should pay me for smoking." If it happens, I don't think I could find myself saying something beside freaking out.
