4. Read the text, translate it and explain the reasons of Government doings:

Do You Want To Kiss An Old Ashtray?

A beautiful girl looks across the dinner table at an attractive young man. He is walking over to her. She is pleased. She pauses while he comes near her. Then suddenly, when he is near, she turns around and walks quickly away. ‘Ugh’, she says, ’he smells like an old ashtray’. It is an anti-smoking advertisement in British cinemas.

In 1971 the British Government made a law about smoking. Every packet of cigarettes must have a health warning on it. Television and radio station cannot advertise cigarettes. Almost half the trains in Britain is ‘No smoking’. You may not smoke in British theaters.

But people still smoke where and when they can though they know that nicotine in tobacco is bad for them. Habits of younger people are not too fixed, that is why the Government films are for young people. The new advertisements in cinemas show attractive young men and women who smoke. Other young people look at them and say: ‘Yes, they are attractive, but ugh! Their hair and clothes smell of tobacco; their teeth and fingers are all yellow’. ‘Do you want to kiss an old ashtray?’ Teenagers often have their first cigarette because they think they look older and more attractive if they smoke. Perhaps they won’t continue if they think it unattractive.

5. Make true or false statements:

1) Anti-smoking advertisements are very popular in British cinemas.

2) The young girl is walking over to the young man at the end of the dinner.

3) She kisses him and says that he smells of tobacco.

4) Every packet of cigarettes must have a colored picture on it.

5) In Britain television and radio often advertise cigarettes.

6) Now in Britain almost half the trains is ‘No smoking’.

7) You may not smoke in British theaters.

9) The Government films about smoking are for elder people.

10) The new advertisements in cinemas show attractive young men and women who smoke.

2. Read and translate the text:

There are three main kinds of drugs-hard, soft, and legal. They can all cause addiction, serious illness and even death.

Hard drugs.

Include heroin, cocaine, LSD and crack.

Soft drugs.

Include marijuana, amphetamines (speed), solvents (glue) and ecstasy.

Legal drugs.

Include tobacco, alcohol and certain tranquillizers.

In New York over 50 % of all arrests are connected with drugs.

Customs officers only find between 15 to 20% of drugs entering the USA and Western Europe.

The two most important drug-growing areas are Latin America and South-east Asia. People there depend on money from their drug crops.

Thousands of drug-addicts die every year. Some die from drugs themselves. Others die from AIDS. This is because they use dirty needles or share needles. Drugs are the second biggest business in the world. Only the arms industry is bigger. is there a solution?

1) Advertising campaigns.

They play an important part in the war against the drugs. In America there has been several campaigns in recent years. Each one has had a message-for example, ‘Just say NO’, ‘Stop the madness’, or ‘Don’t Do Drugs’. A lot of movies and pop stars took part in these campaigns.

In Britain, some anti-drugs campaigns have tried to shock young people. They showed how heroin, for example, can completely destroy addicts’ lives. Also, how dirty needles spread AIDS.

Others have been less dramatic. The slogan for one in Scotland was ‘Choose Life Not Drugs. Be All You Can Be’. This focused on pictures of healthy, independent young people-not the problems of addicts.

2) Education.

As well as advertising, education is also vital in the fight against drugs. Many schools have a drug-education program for children as young as 8 or 9. Programs like these include books, videos, and cassettes. Some schools even arrange visits from ex-addicts. One of these is Ted Cooper. He travels around Britain giving teenagers two-hour drug-education lessons. He tells them how addicts live. How they…

-steal money;

-hurt their families;

-are cheated by dealers;

-destroy their health.

‘That’s the truth ’says Ted, ‘And don’t glamorize it’.
