Facts about Children & Cigarette Smoke

I really appreciate Tammy's honest comments regarding smoking and children. I like what she had to say about protecting her children from second-hand smoke even though she's a smoker. Her comments prompted me to do some further research: According to American Heart Association, 59 percent of American children, ages 4 to 11, are exposed to second-hand smoke. That exposure can lead to serious respiratory and heart illnesses.

Tammy got me to thinking: If a person is going to smoke then that's their choice and it is in the best interest of children for them to make a choice not to expose their children to that. Tammy, I hope you don't mind me saying so, but I pray you'll stop smoking for good soon -- your health is just as important as that of your children.

  1. I don't mind at all! I hope that your article prompts people to quit smoking, including me. And those that don't quit, I hope that they realize that even though they smoke their children do not have to be exposed to their smoke. Thanks for encouraging me to quit! Encouragement helps!!!
