Essay

 I think there are a lot of causes for the increase in the number of young Japanese smokers.
 Firstly, young people chain smoke cigarettes. Some research has shown that as many as 30% of young Japanese smokers started smoking because their friends encouraged them to.
 Secondly, young people smoke for getting rid of stress. Young adolescents have a lot of troubles and worries such as the university entrance examination or parents’ divorce.
 Thirdly, some of them smoke just out of curiosity. According to some study, this is the biggest reason for young Japanese people to smoke.
 Finally, some of them cannot see the advantages of longevity. Many people warn that smoking is very bad for health and shortens life however they do not mention the benefits of living a long life. Of course many people want to live a long life as long as it is a healthy and happy life but life is not that easy especially in this modern society where lifetime employment broke down and materialistic politicians govern our lives.
 As I mentioned above, there are a lot of causes for the increase in the number of young Japanese smokers.

メモ

若者の喫煙者の増加の原因です。
インターネットでしたべたらいろいろアンケート調査の結果が載っていたのでこのトピックは書きやすかったのを覚えています。
また調査の結果はアーギュメントのサポートにもなりますのでいいですね。
しかし、好奇心でタバコを吸うのが1位で、30%が友人に勧められてなんですね。
私はストレスが一番の原因だと思っていました。
