Teenagers and Smoking: Do They Know The Risks?

Do you have a teen living at home? If so, chances are he or she has or will be offered a cigarette during their teenage years. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, each day more than 3,200 people younger than 18 years of age smoke their first cigarette, and an estimated 2,100 youth and adults who have been occasional smokers become daily cigarette smokers.

Teens often smoke due to peer pressure, lack of understanding the health risks or rebellion. Smoking, even occasionally, can decrease your overall health. It is important for you and your teens to know how prevalent underage smoking is, and the long-term risks that are paired with picking up this habit at an early age. While you may think this does not apply to your child, it is important that you educate him or her on the dangers of smoking. To help, we’ve made a list of health facts to share with your kids about the effects of smoking on the body.
