Don't make your kids Nicotine Addicted

No Smoking
Are you a smoker? Do you have kids? If your answer is yes to both the questions, then you must take some extra care while smoking. Because your smoking habit may make your child addicted to nicotine! No, this is not my bluff, but the results of a new Canadian study published in journal Addictive Behaviors.

During the study, Canadian researchers looked at 1800 kids, who were all exposed to secondhand smoke and aged between 10 to 12 years. Defying the conventional belief that secondhand smoke can't make a person nicotine addict, the researchers found that 5% of those kids became addicted to nicotine, even though they never smoked themselves.

In my view, this is really a serious issue that we all must look into. If you are a smoker, you must take care not to smoke before or near kids. And if possible quit smoking. Don't make your kids Nicotine Addicted!
