My Social Studies fair is coming up soon, and my topic is "What are the effects of smoking and what makes it so addictive?" So for any smokers out there, I have a few simple questions that would help me a lot. 1. What age were you when you started smoking? 2. What age are you now? 3. How has smoking effected you medically? 4. How many cigarettes/packs do you smoke a day, on average? 5. Have you ever tried to quit? 6. What brand do you smoke? 7. How has it effected people around you? 8. Do you regret smoking? If not, BE HONEST. 9. Why did you start smoking? Thanks. This is just a survey I'll be doing for my presentation. No personal info will be shared. No names or anything like that, just putting the percentages on a chart. Thank you for responding--- it helps a bunch! 10.Did you start smoking at a legal age? *11. (THIS QUESTION IS OPTIONAL, ONLY PEOPLE WHO HAVE QUIT CAN ANSWER.) Why and HOW did you quit? Was it hard?
