Girl Teens and Smoking Tobacco



High school girls footage had been taken while smoking. Smoking is bad for health

Why is tobacco so addicting? It is because nicotine acts as a stimulant, which is stimulating the mind, body, and spirit. When the body tolerance levels high then one ends up needing to use larger doses of nicotine to maintain a certain level of the physiological effect. When the body becomes accustomed to the presence of nicotine, it then requires the use of the chemical to help the body to function normally. This level of dependence is referred to as an addiction.

Here are some common experiences from teens who smoke.

- They tried their first cigarette in sixth or seventh grade
- They often do not perform well in school
- They feel like they are not a part of the school
- They become isolated from other students
- They canĂ¢€™t perform as well at sports events
- They feel like they have little hope of going to college
- They feel like they need a job to support their smoking habit
- They are reported to school officials for skipping classes
- They start using other illegal substances
- They begin experimenting with alcohol and other drugs
- They experience pressure from home and school and use tobacco as a form of relief
- Teen smokers enjoy trying to hide their smoking

This has made school more fun for some tobacco users. These types of behaviors get attention because the initiation of smoking is influenced by having a friend, particularly a best friend, who smokes. The risk factors do not apply because those who are young think that they are indispensable. The peers who use or have favorable attitudes toward tobacco use are more likely to use other illegal substances. On the other hand, if the teen becomes a member of a pro-social group, such as those participating in sports, cheerleading, or any club that promotes healthy living, the likelihood that the teen will attempt to stop smoking improves.
