100 words on why campus students must not smoke

By Felix Kavii | April 22nd 2016

Students operate under a lot of pressure. Some are pushed into alcohol, smoking and even drugs.

I think students must resist the temptation to smoke as you risk lung cancer and heart disease.

Further, it prematurely ages the skin and triples your chance of getting wrinkles around your eyes and mouth. It also causes impotence and reduced sperm count in men.

Of course there is the issue of reduced fertility in women. It can lead to gum disease. I think students should just do books.
