A Hookah Habit
Everybody knows that smoking cigarettes is really bad for you, so instead some young people have turned to smoking Hookah. Fox 12 Oregon reports that Hookah is a type of tobacco that comes in fun flavors, such as Mango Tango and Skittles. Many teens believe that this flavored tobacco has little or no nicotine in it, there for it is not addictive. Wrong, it does contain nicotine and is addictive. In fact the World Heath Organization reports that a typical Hookah session equals the amount of smoke in 100 cigarettes.
The majority of Hookah smokers are young teenage girls. Hookah is being marketed to young girls by using appealing flavors. One young lady stated that she smokes Hookah because it tastes good. No matter what you call it, it is still smoking and still unhealthy.
