The subject of our discussion is young people and their bad habits.
I want to deal with harmful habits. This subject is burning and actual.
Now, as official reports admit, violence, AIDS, drugs and alcohol are more and more associated with youngsters. Some people care about health others-don’t: they have bad health habits.
Everybody knows that harmful habits are dangerous for health and life but goes on smoking, drinking and taking drugs.
I can name the first fatal habit: drinking alcohol. Alcohol is poison! It destroys the person’s brain, makes speech unclear. A great man said that drinking alcohol was a voluntary madness. Under the influence of alcohol the person can make absolutely rash actions.
The recent surveys really show that alcohol cases are increasing. Teenagers experiment with alcohol for a variety of reasons. First, a lot of them associate drinking with adulthood. Curiosity can be one of the motives for teens’ first try of alcohol. Actually parents don’t pay much attention to what their children do and the most powerful influence on young people is their mates.
Many teens get upset or depressed when they can’t solve their problems. As a result, it makes them believe that there is only one way out-to stop living and commit suicide.
I think there should be much more information about the danger of alcohol provided by mass media and schools.
Teachers and parents can help a lot. Young people must have the feeling that somebody cares for them A lot of teenagers who have alcohol addiction almost never believe that they are dependent. Many young alcoholics are sent to special hospitals for the treatment but sometimes- without any success.
It was said so much about the harm of smoking. Smoking also ruins our health. It makes our teeth yellow, our skin unhealthy, our hair and clothes smell.
It is necessary to have the will — power to stop smoking. Nicotine is a dangerous poison. The person who has this habit can influence society and not in a good way.
Let’s imaging the person smokes near other people, he harms not just himself but the people breathing the smoke.
Of course the government tries to do something for changing the situation: fixes the fines, an official warning « Smoking kills» is printed by law on all cigarette packets. Cigarette advertising is banned on television and radio. Many companies have banned smoking in their offices and canteens.
In my opinion these two customs are not as harmful as using drugs. Drugs kill the strongest, the cleverest and strong — willed people .A drug-user lives about 30 years old. At the discos and parties there is a lot of pressure to drink and smoke, to take drugs. A lot of teens take drugs just to show off, to express themselves or they think it’s impolite to refuse. The idea that drugs can help to escape problems is nonsense. Drugs cause to lose everything: financially and emotionally. Drugs ruin our dreams, they make life unhappy.
Usually the result of it is death caused by different hard diseases. Heroin killed the following genius: Elvis Presley, Murat Nasyrov, Jim Morrison, Marilyn Monroe, Anna Nicole Smith, Kurt Cobain and Freddie Mercurу.
Bad habits cause a cough, a headache, pneumonia, cancer, blood disease, heart disease, brain disease, slow reactions, loss of memory, AIDS, venereal diseases.
Personally, I think that every man must think about his life, make right decisions. The health of a person is the main value in the life. It cannot be bought for any money! There is no price for it. Being sick, you cannot realize all your dreams and be successful in the modern world.
But how to be healthy, when there are a lot of fatal temptations around us!
Don`t begin! Don`t make the first cigar inhalation, the first sip of alcohol! Everything begins so simply, but comes to the end with a trouble.
And what will be with our country if children smoke, drink and take drugs?
If you want to live for a long time, go in for sports. I think that sport is one of the things that makes all people kin. Sport will make you healthy, keep you fit, more organized and better disciplined.
As for me, I’m keen of table tennis (Ping-Pong). It needs mobility, liveliness and much energy. Sport gets me only positive emotions, adrenalin and keeps me in a good form! I have been playing tennis for 5 years, but the more I play, the more I like it. I advise everybody to go in for sports.
Our school №5 has a well- equipped gym, where students can develop physically and get necessary skills, habits. Our pupils play football, volley-ball, basketball and hockey. They have no time for drugs and other foolishnesses.
I want young people to muse on their health and future. They must get rid of their bad habits such as: smoking, drinking alcohol, taking drugs.
Go in for sports and you will be healthy and happy!
I think people should choose for themselves if they want to be healthy-it’s their life, it’s their bodies. They are free to decide.
In conclusion, I would say that there is no place to these habits in our life. To my mind, only healthy people should live on our planet and then our Earth will be brighter and more beautiful, because only the healthy persons will provide its further development and prosperity.
