When I'm traveling with the train, I often see many people smoking at the train station. I find that very disgusting! Why are people wasting their health like this?
I'm very thankful for my health, many are not so blessed. I always try to live a healthy life. I eat almost no meat, I mostly eat organic food, I do sports multiple times a week and I avoid alcohol.
My motivation for this is, that I care about my health. My health is a present, a present that is just given once to me and might disappear one day. I don't want to accelerate it's departure...
My dad was living healthy too, but one day he just wasn't lucky anymore, health went away and after struggling for more than a year, he passed away. He got very ill without doing anything unhealthy, his disease just appeared without any reason.
Health is such a luxury good and everyone who isn't treating it with care makes me sad.
To this day I wasn't able to find any reason to smoke. Is it cool? I don't think so, it just smells very bad. Is it a good way to being a rebel against my parents? I don't know why I should be a rebel, my parent's were good parent's and even if this wasn't the case, I would only harm myself with smoking. Is it an option to reduce stress? I think it doesn't, running for example might be a lot more helpful.
Smoking just slowly kills you and burns a lot of money you could have used for better things... And also think about the other people you force to breath your smoke!
