Understanding Smoking group of Young People
Recently, the numbers of smokers have grown fast, especially among young people in our society. Smoking makes many bad consequences for a body. It affects people’s organs’ health a lot. People will have many uncomfortable symptoms such as high blood pressure, respiration problems, and emotional problems. Seal said” (1998). Cigarettes will make concern for human’s body. Smoking is a harmful thing for society and young people, because young people comprise an important group in society. For young people’s responsibility, they must contribute positive things for society with a healthy body. First, their healthy body can create economic growth. Smokers comprise a large percentage of the population. Therefore, they play or have an important role in society’s economy. Next, their healthy body connects with their life and society’s resources. They should a have healthy body to create their new life. A healthy body can supply energy for them. So, they can make their life become better without society’s help. Finally, they should use their healthy body to contribute to society. Young people are a big group that leads society into success. Therefore, they need to have a healthy body to help them.
We wanted to know which gender has the higher proportion, why young people tend to smoke, and non-smokers’ opinion about smokers. We decided to survey the CESL students in Carbondale, Southern Illnols because there are many international students there. We wanted to get different views of smokers who want to quit in different countries and find out why smokers tend to smoke and which ways smokers want to quit.
In my view, the rate of female smokers would be lower than male smokers because females care more about health than males. Smokers would say they started to smoke because of their environments and non-smokers also would have the same thinking.
We surveyed young people with several questions. Through the survey, we discussed smoking with them and got new information about smoking. We collected these materials to make exact data. We had forty- three surveys, including twenty- two males and twenty- one females
We went outside to get smokers and chose people who we did not know. We wanted to understand most international students’ thinking about smoking behavior through the survey. We wished to get some general ideas of smokers and nonsmokers about quitting smoking. These clues would help us know how to treat smokers. In the survey process, these people enjoyed to answering our questions and gave us different views of how they thought of smoking.
See appendix A
Male smokers number was more than females. We have fifteen male smokers(71%) but only four female smokers(18%). Both smokers and nonsmokers had the same ides; they thought environments make people start smoking, such as friends smoking and family member smoking. Smokers want to have a program of training to help them quit smoking and most of them(62.5%) said they were not addicted.
VIII. Discussion and Conclusion
In conclusion, Our hypothesis was correct. Smokers tend to smoke because their environments affect them a lot. It is a worthy survey because it shows that most of smokers are not addicted and they want to quit smoking. We will try to understand what kinds of program of training they want to have at next time.

Parents should have an active relationship with children and will have many advantages if parents care about children’s homework. Parents will enjoy children’s process of growing up when parents participate in children’s homework. Parents should know how to superintend their children and give attention to children, because they talk to each other though homework every day. It will be easy for parents to understand children as their close friends if they have regular conversations through homework.
First, parents should participate in children’s study process. It can help parents be close with their kids and understand each other if parents are involved in children’s homework ( Strauss, 2009). If parents participate in children’s process of growing up, they will have an unforgettable memories. It is a good experience for parents.
Secondly, children’s homework should be done with parents. President Obama said, “ Teachers, no matter how dedicated or effective, cannot make sure your children leave for school on time and do their homework when they get back at night. These are things only a parent can do. These are things that our parents must do” ( Holland, n.d., para. 4). Parents should know what things that children learn in school and help them. When parents know everything about their children, they will know how to superintend their children and give attention.
However, many parents do not know these advantages of helping children’s homework. They think that homework is children’s business and they can do it on their own way, but it is wrong thinking. Parents should make regular conversations with their children through homework. It will be easy to understand children as their close friends if they have done this.
In conclusion, parents should pay attention to children’s homework. They can understand children’s everything through their homework. Children need to have parents help in their process of growing up. Parents and children should work as a team in their family.

Many media report Michael Jackson’s death and many criticisms of him have polar ideas. First, some parts of people’s concern are with Michael Jackson’s abnormal things. For example, he is a pedophilic person and spends vast amounts of money without thinking. These abnormal things will always remain in some parts of people’s mind even a few years after.
