Teenage Girls Smoking Influenced By Britney Spears

The Western Mail reports smoking is reclaiming a “sophisticated” and “cool” reputation as pop idols such as and Charlotte Church are snapped cigarette in hand, alarming doctors and anti-smoking activists who say the girls also turn to smoking to stay thin, risking their long-term health. “The big question is, where are these girls getting this information from, that smoking and being thin is cool?” anti-smoking pressure group ASH member Amanda Sandford asked. “The answer is, from the media they read and the films they watch – even the occasional photograph of a celebrity or super model smoking is enough to register in a young girl’s mind and she will consciously absorb that information.”

    I have now switched to electronic cigarettes, and I strongly recommend that all of you do the same and stay happy by quitting the real smoking.

    I know exactly what you mean. I’ve been a smoker for decades and although I know it’s killing me I don’t have the willpower to quit. But I found these new, “healthy” cigarettes that let me get my fix without damaging my lungs. Check out my blog!
