In recent years, people might notice that there are so many students start to smoking on campus. Even it is legal that college students smoking. But still, I am very curious about why there is so many student smoking even they know it is not good for their’s heathy.
According to the research, most of the students thinks they will not be smoking forever, they probably will not be smoking after they graduate from college. So it is not going to hurt their’s health. So these phenomenon are called social smoking, and it is really popular among the college students. Usually, the student who is social smoking are not heavy smokers, they will smoke when they are with their friends at a party instead of every day. So because of this, they think this will not affect their healthy, so more and more people will be a part of social smoking.
But for those heavy smokers, they are saying that smoke can help them lower the stress. Well, this statement makes sense, because college student is under a lot of pressure. But according to the research, these saying are wrong. It is just excuse for their’s psychological addictions. According to research; smoking is not going to lower someone’s stress instead of increasing the anxiety and pressure. So people tend to smoking a lot tend to have more anxiety than the people who does not.
Another reason is that students’ parents are smoking. So their kid is smoking too. Because to a kid, the biggest influence is their parents, so once the kids saw their parents are smoking, they will think it is normal. Also, some cigarets commercials will show that people who are smoking are cool. So after the student saw those commercials, they tend to imitate the commercials and trying to be cool. Here is link that show five reasons why teenagers tend to smoke.
Like we talked in the class, no matter what kind of cigarets or how often does people smoke, it is all bad for healthy, and it will increase the chance for people to get cancer. So it is better we should not smoking or smoke less.
