Beauty/Pregnancy/Children:


isabelle (24 year) - Nationality: canadian - September 12, 2000

"I started smoking when I was nine years old, because I desperately needed something to cope with my life. I coped all right, but it was not enough. I never touched drugs, but I spent incredible amounts of money to cope. Before long, nothing worked anymore. At 16, I left my parents house, got an apartment, where I could smoke without any problems. Later, I started to sneeze and caught blood. It does not happen all the time but still it worries me. What keeps me on them? My nerves. I quit often, but I always keep falling back. I really intend to quit before I have kids. How will I be able to explain to my kids how cigarettes are bad for them with a cigarette in my own hand?"
