Problem Statement

Tobacco smoking is one of the most common causes of lung related diseases which leads to other serious health concerns including increased risks of fatal maladies. In the United States alone, cigarette smoking leads to almost 480,000 annual deaths based on statistical data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). According to some experts, cigarette smoking may be even more addictive than other potent drugs like cocaine and heroin. While many programs have been conducted, and numerous products have been released and invented to help people quit smoking, it seems that these efforts are always never enough.

We want the brilliant minds of today’s students to help us come up with a practical solution to spread the news about the potential dangers of abusing tobacco cigarettes and how it can be prevented. A wise man once said that the future of our nation lies in the hands of today’s generation – so, let your thoughts be heard and help us make a change through your essays. You can talk about alternatives and other natural means of helping smokers quit cold turkey. You may also include vaporizers and e-cigarettes as a means of slowly and gradually turning away from smoking.
