SMOKING KILLS

STORYLINE

Calvin and his friends were having a normal gathering at a


restaurant in Taylors University. They are semester 2 students for
the
Foundation in Natural and Built Environment. One of his friends
gave him cigarettes and asks him to try on it. At first Calvin
rejected his friends but lastly he still could not resist and took the
cigarette
to have a try.
The next day, one of Calvins classmates, Adele saw him
smoking. Then she decided to meet up with him and have a talk.
When Adele confronted Calvin for his wrong beings Calvin
immediately replied angrily saying that it was none of her
business! Adele tried to say some of the bad effects that cigarette
will cause
him bad health but he keeps on denying it.

One evening, Calvins good friend Alex was having a casual


date with his girlfriend Sin Yuen. Alex suddenly passed out on
the
floor and was sent to the hospital. At the hospital Sin Yuen heard
about the bad news and informed Calvin about it. When Calvin
knew about it, he was very sad. This incident hit Calvin hard and
he decided to stop smoking, in honour of his friend Alex.
Calvin still has his lunch with his circle of friends. He goes out
with them but he does not smoke anymore. His classmates
stereotype him as he still mingles with the group of people, but
actually he changed a new leaf and started to live a better life.
He did not even care of what others say but him being himself.
