Raising the Age The complex question that was asked in the post was, “What are the consequences the city of New York will face by raising the smoking age to twenty-one?” This paper will discuss the multifaceted controversial subject facing the New York City residents; those ages eighteen through twenty-one and many merchants around the city. Multiple opinions show why this bill is a very good decision when looking at the health at these eighteen to twenty-one year olds in addition to the city’s youth. When another argument shows the financial hardships going to be felt because this bill passed legislation. Then, there are those making claims about someone that is adult enough to go to war for our country should be adult enough to smoke.
One of the first reasons why I believe that they should make smoking cigarettes illegal in the United States is because you are not only doing damage to your body by smoking, buy you are also damaging the bodies of people around you. This is called environmental tobacco smoke (ETS),
“Cresswell, you work for me. It’d feel wrong if I used informal language to refer to you.”
Her legs were long, lean, and tan. Her blue shorts were loose, unlike her shirt. It was pitch black; showing all her curves and her flat toned stomach, but sadly it didn't show anything more than her neck and hands. Her dark brown hair was pulled in a high, messy ponytail. A strand of hair had fallen out and was on her full pink lips a split second before she unconsciously brushed it away. I took a moment before I finally looked her into her brown eyes. They weren't the brightest but by far the most captivating as she too studied me.
When I was in high school I was not much different from any other male in my grade. I enjoyed sports, video games, and weed. I started smoking weed when I was in 12th grade. My friend Mike invited me over to his house to hang out one Friday night. As soon as I arrived to his house I smelled a strong scent of weed. I already knew what weed smelled like because I've been to many music festivals. When I walked into his backyard I saw my friend Mike and two other kids from my grade that I didn't talk to. I tried to avoid hanging out with those two kids because they were always up to trouble. I walked up to everyone and said, "What's up guys". They replied, "Yo what's good". When I sat down the two kids pulled out a ounce of weed. I immediately felt
Psychological perspectives of smoking This essay will consider how each of the 5 psychological perspectives explain smoking. I will cover the psychodynamic, the behaviouristic, the biological, the cognitive and the humanistic approach.
Lisa spoke out about her and shared her exact thoughts. "Well, she became part of the show and obviously it’s great for the restaurant to have people that legitimately need to work, and she really wanted to work. We were a couple of waitresses down, and I thought, 'Why not give her a shot?' She’s actually fantastic. She really is there four or five nights a week. She’s lovely – I have never met a girl like her. I don’t know if it’s where she’s from, but [fakes a Kentucky accent] 'everything is absolutely so nice!'"
"Me too" Vince said walking into the room "hey maybe you can help me out at the shop tomorrow" he says smiling.
"Those red pants make you look like one of those jerks from Prep, bruh. I work the register at a bank and I don't even wear that crap," he says while laughing in a sincere manner. He shakes my hand the same way we have since the second grade; we both smile at the fact that the gesture is alive after all these years.
I shrugged. “I guess I’ve never seen any of you guys going to work before so I just assumed that you were given money from Captain or something. It seems like you might have more important things to do in your day besides bussing tables.”
"What's a pretty girl like you doing all alone at this time of night?" I pulled the Marlboro cigarette from my red painted lips, the evidence left on the cigarette, long enough to scoff at the overly used line. He obviously didn't take the hint as he sat on the bench beside me. I glanced sideways at him, allowing myself to give him a quick assessment. I immediately made note of our physical differences. My skin was pale as his was tan. My hair was dark brown as his, light blonde. I couldn't tell the color of his eyes, being that he had dark shades on. He was attractive, I thought. But I wasn't going to tell him that.
" They are great. I work a lot and love the people I work with." Tonya proceeded to explain to this counselor that her dad is still transporting her to and from work and she has no concerns on the job at this time. This counselor explained to Tonya that her case will be due for closure soon. Tonya asked if this counselor could keep it opened to just follow-up with her to make sure she does good during the holiday season. This counselor explained to her that she could do a post employment case with her and provide
“Alright just tell me one thing...who’s on top?” Loren jumped up, out of his seat and lunged at the man. Kevin jumped off of the desk and attempted to run away. Loren picked up the stapler on his desk and threw it with deadly precision at the back of his head.
“We just think you could use some help around here, it's a big job for a lady”
The war on smoking has existed for decades. With the advent of more tenacious laws prohibiting smoking in public locations, and most recently Minnesota’s historic tobacco settlement, many actions against “Big Tobacco” have become more successful. Anti-smoking campaigns have become more confrontational, directly targeting tobacco companies in an effort to expose its manipulative and illegal
