    smoking

    Hi there,
    I think this sentence is correct.

    Many teenagers are smoking nowadays.

    The present continous tense is used because it seems like a trend and those teenagers are still doing the action (smoke) now.
    And we can also use 'the present tense' to explain smoking among teenagers is very common.

    Am I right?

    tks
