Smoking

2011-04-08 18:09:35 来源:admin 点击量:6344

Five years ago, I went to Shao Xing to visit my cousin. My grandpa had been outside smoking when my aunt called him into the house. He left his cigarette on the front porch steps so he could continue smoking it when he returned.

My cousin was curious to see what smoking was really like, so he picked up the cigarette, put it in his mouth and puffed in smoke. Next, he was coughing his head off. He looked like he was about to throw up, but he stretched his hand out toward me to offer me the cigarette. “Come on try it,” he said.

I just grabbed the stupid thing out of his hand and smashed it with my shoe. Then, grandpa returned. “Where'd my cigarette go?” he asked. I just stood there, not wanting to admit what I had done, or what my cousin had done before that. But I knew that this was the moment of truth. I took a deep breath and began to explain.

I told my grandpa that I could't really believe he would choose to smoke. I was sure he knew how bad it was, so why did he do it? He said he started smoking when he was just a teenager. Now he was so addicted that he couldn't stop. It was just too hard to quit.

Here was an old man, my own grandpa, admitting there was something that he couldn't control that was probably slowly killing him. I stood there in disbelief, dumbfounded. Then I remembered this commercial I had seen on TV. There was this lady who was so addicted to cigarettes that she'd gotten really sick. Doctors had to cut a hole in her throat for her to breathe, and she was still smoking through the hole! It was the most disgusting thing I've ever seen. Standing in front of my grandpa, I began to cry. What if that happened to him?

Ever since that day, my grandpa has cut back on cigarettes. I know one thing: I want to live a long time. I don't want to be sick or out of control of my life, the way that lady was. I'll never smoke. I'll take fresh air.

  抽烟

  五年前,我去绍兴看我的表弟。外公在屋外抽烟,舅妈叫他进去。外公把烟留在台阶上,这样他出来还能继续抽。

  表弟对烟很好奇,他拿起那根烟,把它放到嘴里,猛吸了一口。接下来,他开始剧烈地咳嗽。我本以为他会罢休,不料他竟把烟递给我,“来吧,试试!”

  我一把从他手中夺过烟,扔在地上,一脚踩灭。就在这时,外公出来了。“我的烟呢?”他问。我呆呆地站在那里,不想承认刚才我和表弟做的事。但我知道,这是说出事实的时候了。我深吸一口气,开始解释。

  我告诉外公,我无法相信他会选择吸烟。他一定知道吸烟的坏处,为什么还要这样做呢?外公说,他十几岁就开始吸烟了,现在他如此上瘾以至于停不下来。要戒掉太难了。

  这位老人,我的亲外公,承认有些东西他也无法控制,而且也许在慢慢危及他的生命。我不敢相信自己的耳朵。突然我想起了电视上的一个广告:有一位妇女因为吸烟病得很重,医生不得不在她的喉咙上开一个洞让她呼吸,可她竟还透过那个洞吸烟!这是我所看见过的最恶心的一幕。站在外公面前,我开始抽泣。如果有一天他也变成这个样子怎么办?

  自从那天以后,外公大大地减少了烟量。有一点我很清楚:我希望自己能活得长一些。我可不想生病或是像那位妇女一样无法控制自己的生活。我永远不会吸烟。我还是喜欢新鲜空气。
