Before we smoke, it is better to look at the fact of smoking effects, not only for smokers but also for non smokers. About 50 thousands people die every year in Britain as the direct result of smoking. This is the seven times as many as deaths in road accidents. Nearly a quarter of smokers die because of diseases caused by smoking.
Ninety percent of lung cancers are caused by smoking. If we smoke five cigarettes a day, we are six times more likely to die of lung cancer than a non- smoker. If we smoke twenty cigarettes a day, the risk is nineteen times greater. Ninety five per-cent of people who suffer from bronchitis are peo-ple who smoke. Smokers are two and half times more likely to die of heart disease than non- smok-ers.
Additionally, children of smokers are more likely to develop bronchitis and pneumonia. In one hour in a smoky room, a non-smoker breathes as much as substance causing cancer as if he had smoked fifteen cigarettes.

The sly Fox soon found a bright patch of moonlight, where the Pheasants could see him clearly; there he raised himself up on his hind legs, and began a wild dance. First he whirled ‘round and ‘round like a top, then he hopped up and down, cutting all sorts of strange capers. The Pheasants stared giddily. They hardly dared blink for fear of losing him out of their sight a single instant.
Now the Fox made as if to climb a tree, now he fell over and lay still, playing dead, and the next instant he was hopping on all fours, his back in the air, and his bushy tail shaking so that it seemed to throw out silver sparks in the moonlight.
