BAD HABBITS.The three main problems - alcoholism, drug-taking and smoking threaten our life, ruin careers, happy family life and cause early death.
SmokingSmoking is one of the most common addictions. Smokers usually deceive themselves saying that smoking is not dangerous. But statistics of diseases and death speak otherwise. The smoke they breath have harmful substances, nicotine and ammonia. Young people think they look more attracting when holding a cigarette. How to stop smoking? Governments and authorities do little to diminish the number of smokers. They receive much money from the tax on cigarettes and tobacco. How can we stop smoking? The best way is never to start. But if there is such a habit already, we must be strong to stop it.
Questions for discussion.Why is smoking dangerous?In some countries tobacco advertising is banned (to ban - запрещать). Do you think it's a good idea? Can it help?Is smoking a disease or just a habit? Your opinion. What should we do to overcome this problem? (to overcome - преодолеть)
DRUG-ADDICTIONDrug-addiction is another problem of the twentieth century. Young people are particularly exposed to this threat. They try once or twice a cigarette with narcotic inside, then they change to injections, and day by day they become totally dependent on this deathly habit. There certainly should be more educational films, books distributed among people to show the real threat brought on by smoking, drinking alcohol and taking drugs.
Questions for discussion. 1.Is there a problem of drug-taking in our country?2. Why do young people begin to take drugs?3. Is it a disease or just a habit?4. How can we help such people?
ALCOHOLISM IS BAD FOR HEALTH.Alcoholism is another social problem. It causes atrophy of cells, weakness of sight, illnesses of kidneys, liver, stomach, heart and other organs. It is easy and fast to become dependent on alcohol, but very difficult to overcome this habit. Why do people drink? The reasons are similar to that of why people smoke. Once started it is difficult to stop.
Questions for discussion.1. Can the mankind (человечество) overcome this problem?2. Should the advertising banned (запрещено) on TV?3. Is alcoholism a disease or just a habit?
GOOD RULES TO REMEMBER:Get up early and go to bed early to keep fit.Take regular exercises to keep fit.Take a cool/cold shower to keep fit.Eat healthy food to keep fit.Never smoke to keep fit.Clean your teeth every morning and every evening to keep fitWash your hands before you eat to keep fit.
