Paragraph on A Hard Lesson – by Anand


I received the hardest lesson in life when my habit of smoking had almost ruined me physically and financially.


It was a very difficult time for me when I made up my mind to quit smoking for good. I had wandered away from the right path and the lesson I received, again brought me back to the right track.

Chain Smoking:

I picked up the habit of smoking right after my high school. From wanting to have a first-time experience with a cigarette, I started developing a minor addiction towards it. In the company of friends who smoke, I started smoking regularly and became heavily addicted to smoking. I used to secretly smoke in the house so that my parents wouldn’t find out. There were days when I used to smoke up a full packet of cigarette.

Health and Financial Difficulties:


The regular smoking started developing lung problems in my body. I started experiencing regular chest pains and other complications also started developing. My brother knew the harsh impacts of smoking. He also knew that I had become badly addicted to smoking. Since he was very close to me and loved me, he started asking me to quit smoking.

I never listened to him. He used to hide my packet of cigarettes or throw them in the bin. He even got me nicotine tablets so that I stopped smoking. But nothing stopped me. Even during the days I had no money, I would borrow money from friends to smoke. Gradually, I started running into huge debts which also affected my family. I would secretly take money from my father’s wallet to smoke. I was so addicted it drove me blind. My health was also deteriorating.

Turning Over a New Leaf:

I gradually started realizing that I was killing myself and gravely affecting my family. My medical expenses had shot up and this was putting extra burden on my father. I had wasted his body too much as the doctors said. The realization to quit smoking started to dawn upon me. I remembered my brother’s words whenever I tried to hold a cigarette. I quit the company of friends who used to smoke everyday and influence me to smoke as well.

I admitted the truth in front of my parents and promised them to never smoke again. Though my parents were distraught after hearing the news, they were happy that I was honest with them. My brother’s words rang in my ear every time of the day and in a span of two months, I had almost quit smoking. My parents were proud of me and I was proud of myself.


The consequences of smoking changed my life completely. My health and financial problems were the hardest lessons I received. I turned over a new leaf and quit a life-threatening habit. I feel proud of what my brother did for me. He made me a better person. I also feel proud of myself for having quit smoking.
