Dr. Stephen Talks About Dangers of Smoking

“If your child has fragile lungs, asthma, or any breathing problems, smoking makes it worse,” says Dr. Stephen Pont.

“Some kids who have never had asthma can have an attack if they’re exposed to smoke -- whether it’s inside the house, inside the car, or even outside. If you smoke less than 5 cigarettes per day or go more than half an hour in the morning before your first cigarette, these are great signs you’re not yet addicted...a great time to quit!”

Dr. Stephen Pont is a physician at the Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas (Seton Family of Hospitals) and is medical director for AISD’s Student Health Services.
