Dear columnist,

Smoking is bad for you and you should stop immediately, I know, I know, and I have never really liked doing it. Im Bob. Im 17years old. I started smoking 3 years ago. I remember smoking my first cigarette. I was at school when my parents let me go on my first school excursion, and thats where it happened. A friend of mine bought a packet of cigarettes and offered me one. I tried to refuse but I couldnt: I was curious to know what smoking was! So I tried smoking one. Then another, then another and so on The first made me feel sick, and the second made me cough a lot. To be honest, I have never really enjoyed smoking, but giving up is more difficult than starting. Ive often tried cutting it down, but I havent got the will-power to stop completely. If somebody finds an easy way to help people give up smoking, then I will follow it Ever since I started, I can't do all the stuff I used to. I could swim with my friends on teams and solo. I also walked and ran with them. But now I can't because I get out of breath and just don't have the energy or desire that I had before. I always feel tired. I have a bad breath and my clothes have a nasty smell. I feel miserable. Can you please help me?
