Plea to Smokers to Quit in 2010

Posted on: January 6, 2010

   In Scotland, many people are being requested to quit smoking in the year of 2010.  The shops are noted to not selling tobacco to anyone.  Also, they are restricting the retailers to sell these toxins, of whom will continue to disregard the laws.  In result to selling the tobacco to anyone under the age of 18, the shops will receive some fixed-penalty notices.  Smoking is a destructive thing to your health, you are likely to get lung cancer and throat diseases.  It affects the whole population, if people become well aware of this cause, then many lives can be saved.  In that way people would not worry of spending money on health care.  In recent reports, officials say that, “smoking is responsible for about 13,000 deaths and 35,500 hospital admissions each year.”  Now there are young people doing this bad habit, and the risks will increase at high rates.  This is serious, because that ruins a large percentage of population in Scotland.
