E-cigarettes are also addicting

Editor, OBSERVER:

I am writing about the e-cigarette and let me just say that I for one am not OK with how tobacco companies are trying to keep people addicted to their products.

First, I am going to tell you a story about a family of smokers. Once, there was a family of smokers, they smoked a lot and they found out about these new e-cigarettes. Soon, they were smoking them. What they didn’t know was that their smoking habit was killing their kids and themselves. Soon, they died one by one, but the cigarette companies didn’t care because all they wanted was the money from the family and soon their kids.

That is why no one should be allowed to smoke under aged at least not around kids 15 and under, because even the smoke from cigarettes can be addictive to young kids and can encourage kids to start smoking.

A lot of times people try to quit smoking real cigarettes with e-cigarettes because they think that e-cigarettes are healthier. But no matter what is advertised, this has not been scientifically proven to be true. E-cigarettes are also bad because they try to make the boxes and ads look like candy for kids to think that it is OK or cool to do.

They do this with regular cigarettes too, but these are new and high-tech so they seem even cooler. I don’t like how it seems like the tobacco companies don’t care that they are ruining lives just for some money, and that they don’t care as long as it’s not their life or their family being harmed.

In a way they are paid to be murderers and are teaching people that it is good to kill people or ruin their lives as long as they get money out of all the bad things they do. I don’t like how they know what they are doing but they don’t care about it.
