Passage B The Good Breakfast Guide
I didn't get a buzz, because I didn't inhale, but just the fact I was actually smoking made me think I was cool. But my friend Donna didn't think so. She just looked at me like I was the stupidest thing on earth, which I probably was, because ！ still smoke to this day.
I've tried to quit, but it's very hard since most of my friends smoke too, When I started smoking regularly at the beginning of sixth grade, not that many students smoked; by the end of the year, a lot were smoking, It was pretty bad. Some kids' grades went down, including mine, from skipping classes to get nicotine into their systems. Now, in ninth grade, I'm still smoking.
My parents often ask, "Where do you buy cigarettes？" I buy them anywhere. Hardly any one ever asks me for ID. Maybe I look 18, maybe I just put another $2.50 in the cash register. The Safeway down the street won't sell me cigarettes. Last time I went there, I stole four packs, got caught, and had to write an essay on why stealing is wrong.
About five months after I started cigarettes, I began smoking marijuana. There's no doubt in my mind that cigarettes are a gateway to drug. Almost everyone I know started smoking before doing drugs. That has to tell you something.
