Two-thirds of students get hooked

Staged photo of two brothers, Kevin and Sean, simulating the sharing of that first cigarette ever.Almost two-thirds of all students who start smoking will soon find themselves losing their freedom to simply turn and walk away. If current statistics hold, it will cost one-third of student smokers an average of 13 years of life. Imagine any student intentionally engaging in any activity that they know in advance carries tremendous odds of permanently enslaving them, and then slowly sucking the life out of their body until it cripples and kills them.

The above photo was taken in May 2005 by John R. Polito. It may only be used in association with any non-commercial, non-fund-raising, and not-for-profit youth smoking prevention or cessation education effort.
