One of the best things any parent can do for their kids is to keep them away from smokers, whether it’s the parent themselves or other smokers out in public areas.
We all know how unhealthy smoking is. We also know how hard it is to kick the habit.
As a former smoker myself, I know it’s hell trying to quit smoking. It’s not something I’d wish on anyone. That might sound like an over-dramatization, but most smokers struggling to quit would probably agree with me.
If you’re a smoker that has kids, consider taking steps now to quit, before you destine your children to the same hell you’ve gone through.
According to new research from the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, the more time a child is exposed to a parent smoking, the more likely that child will become a heavy smoker.
All the more reason to quit smoking now!
Don’t expose your children to cigarette smoke and protect them from becoming addicted themselves.
