Change of my beliefs on tobacco As a child growing up on a tobacco farm I can remember having to do a lot of hard work I lived on a family farm so I was raised not only by my parents but also by my grandparent Aunts and Uncles I thought that tobacco was great after all it was how my family earned money As I grew older my grandmother would always tell me how bad smoking is for people and for me to never take up smoking Hearing this always confused me because we raised tobacco and sold it to warehouses that would then sell it to others who in the end would produce cigarettes I thought we must be bad people if we are growing and selling this stuff that is so harmful to people After giving this some thought and getting up the courage I told my grandparents that I would no longer help with the tobacco I told my grandparents I felt like by growing tobacco we were helping people harm themselves we were just as bad as the cigarette companies I felt that we were just the bottom of the totem pole so to speak My grandparents and I talked about this for a while And in the end they agreed with me on a lot of the issues that I had about tobacco My grandparents told me that they could not make me be apart of something that I felt so strongly against My grandmother even told me she was proud of me for standing up for whats right Years later my family stopped raising tobacco I never asked the reasons why it could have been that they could no longer get a fare price in the market place I would like to believe that just maybe I my have had something to do with there choice to stop producing tobacco
