THE REAL STRUGGLE OF ELIMINATING SMOKING HABIT IN THE NUCLEAR FAMILY
Family is the closest people who might expose you to the smoking habits. Most boys (and some girls) start this habit since they are very young. Economically, smoking habit brings nothing but disadvantages. The system in Indonesia has helped increasing the sales of cigarettes and therefore trigger more the smoking habit especially the teenagers. One of the ways to achieve this goal by creating the uncomfortable atmosphere such as smoking cigarettes is extremely expensive and troublesome. High tax, strict regulations, firm law enforcement are the role parts where the government has the authority to implement in reducing, even eliminating the smoking habit. Home applied rules can be created by family. Making those who smoke pay more for each cigarette they smoke will gradually eliminate this bad habit. Increasing the awareness of the negative impacts of tobacco is certainly a huge work but starting it from our own family will certainly help to make this happen.
