Smoking Sucks . . . the Life out of You!
Micky Magic's “Smoking Sucks . . .the Life out of You” is a Magic Show with a message that will really convince students to think seriously about smoking.
This program is geared towards tweens and teens. It is sometimes edgy, but never crude or inappropriate. Although cigarette smoking in the United States has been decreasing, the bad news is that 34 million Americans still smoke cigarettes.
Still worse news is that although the rate of cigarette smoking has decreased, vaping and e-cigarettes are on the rise.
Are we going to allow another generation
to get hooked on tobacco and nicotine?
Micky not only educates students about the dangers of tobacco and nicotine, he also informs students about Big Tobacco's mis-information and tricks, trying to make teens into suckers.
Micky always provides the right balance of entertainment and education to keep students engaged and learn something at the same time.
Micky Magic is the perfect choice to present this show. In addition to being a Master Magician and Edutainer, Micky (Mike Gomez) is also a certified Smoking Cessation Counselor (certified by the American Cancer Society.)
"Big Tobacco" tries to make smoking appealing to young people. They do this in many ways: cool advertising, fun cigarette flavorings, and even giving away free sample packs of cigarettes.
After watching Smoking Sucks . . . the Life out of You, students will think much more seriously about smoking and vaping. They will also feel smarter and more confident about making good choices for themselves.
A 2016 Surgeon General’s report concluded that youth use of nicotine in any form, including e-cigarettes, is unsafe, causes addiction and can harm adolescent brain development. E-cigarettes can also expose users to harmful and carcinogenic chemicals such as formaldehyde and lead. Studies have found that young people who use e-cigarettes are more likely to become life-long smokers.
Popular brands like Juul deliver as much nicotine as a whole pack of cigarettes. They are now owned by…Tobacco giant Altria who purchased 35% stake in Juul in a deal worth $12.8 billion. Juul Labs, is the largest Vaping company.
Our 2018 Anti-Drug Assembly Show is a well-thought-out presentation utilizing best practices along with Micky Magic’s expertise as a Smoking Cessation Counselor (certified by The American Cancer Society.)
Because most of our shows are presented to grade school students and sometimes High Schoolers, we focus on tobacco abuse. Cigarettes are the gateway drug to practically every drug known.
Tobacco Executives LIED to Congress.
Today they're investing in Vaping.
