Eve Fralick’s Tobacco Story
As an athlete, I abhor the use of addictive substances that could impact my body, performance, or training capabilities. The nicotine in cigarettes has been found to be a highly addictive substance that results in shortness of breath and increases the potential for emphysema, heart disease, stroke, and cancer. In a world that is already filled with pollutants, I am left to wonder why anyone would want to knowingly put themselves in harm’s way. I find it very sad to see people (particularly, young kids) smoking when I am at an event knowing all of these health risks and their negative impacts. I also get frustrated with the cigarette companies when I travel outside of the United States to third world countries and see advertisements promoting smoking in a much more persuasive manner than is typically seen in the U.S.
