Remember the last scene in Grease when Sandy was dressed in black and Danny Zucko was crazy for her? The epitome of 1950s sexiness, desire, and appeal with cigarettes is no longer valid in today’s world.
As we see first-hand in our stop smoking clinic, young people in modern society not only know, but believe that smoking is no longer cool.
Several decades ago when smoking was cool, very little was known about the harmful effects of smoking. Back then, popular thought was that it would simply stunt your growth. The youth of today are better informed and better educated about smoking than their great-grandparents were.
With pop culture today focused on healthy lifestyles, athletic bodies, and a scorn for smoking, young people today view smoking as not cool – a trend we see confirmed at our stop smoking clinic.
