Dear Editor,
It is tragic that so many young people smoke regularly without realizing how many health problems they will have in the future.This is the reason which I am writing to you; to express my suggestions in order for all of us to deal with this serious problem.

Firstly, I believe that family has the most important role in this case because parents and relatives are in close contact with their children so they know their special features and weakness.In other words, they should explain to them the effects of smoking on their health and they should convince their children that smoking is a bad habit. Parents themselves must be role models for their children, setting the good example of working out in a gym or having some physical activities all together.

Secondly, schools and teachers have a lot to offer to tackle this problem with their educational programs. As I know many schools show some selected films in order to shock the children into an awareness of the problem and encourage them to avoid all the bad influences. In addition, educators know the way to be near the children by discussing their problems and rewarding their efforts. Also, they know how to organize lectures related with young people's problems, like smoking in this tender age, cooperating with different experts, such as doctors and simultaneously informing children's parents about these issues.

I firmly believe that with the cooperation of family and teachers, we can persuade young people that smoking is not cool. I think it will help to try these suggestions.
