TDE Example Paragraph for English 101

 

Do people get smarter and smoke less as they age, or is it that the people who smoke simply die? According to a graph from the US Department of Health and Human Services, over 25 percent of men from ages 18 to 44 smoke, but only about seven percent of men 65 and older smoke. Personally, the eldest smoker I ever met was Leo Mahlberg, a friend of my grandmother’s, in Red Oak, Iowa. He told me that he “started when [he] was twelve and didn’t mean to quit” his Camel cigarettes. And why should he have—he told me that when he was 88 years old. The simple fact is that we cannot legislate personal behavior. I know that Leo knew his chances of early death went up because of his smoking, but he did it anyway. In the same way we wouldn’t ban smoking or drinking alcohol, we shouldn’t attempt to regulate non-lethal recreational drugs like marijuana. Smoking kills its users sometimes, but whether to smoke should always be the decision of the individual and not the state.
