Why smoking? this is a common question that usually ask for smoking people. Culture of smoking has influence teenager right now. This is as a reason to get friend. And kind of facilities in society or community. Obviously it was wrong.

Sorry, I don't like smoking
As a teacher I am very concerned about the current conditions. Many teenagers try to smoke. And it looks common things. Why do they act like that? Sometimes as parents we educate them well at home. but we do not know the condition of our children outside. Therefore, religious and social control have instilled early. To avoid the things that we don't want it happen to our children. Spirituality have a big role to create good habit. As a parents we have to give a spiritual motivation to our teenager, I believe when they have good spirituality they will think twice doing bad things. Better to create spiritual environment at home. Like going to church together for Christian or going to Mosque for Muslim.
At least they know which is good and what is bad. Education also has a big role in affects their minds. Health education such as the dangers of smoking and the consequences that would arise if smoking. Kind of education will give an overview to them to think twice before doing bad things. This can be found at the school. Education give a big portion to manage teenager from bad habit or bad influences. .
