‘SMOKING IS INJURIOUS TO HEALTH” is the caption that we could see on every cigarette box or any television channel publishing a cigarette’s advertisement .Smoking is defined as the act of smelling or inhaling the smoke of a substance, mostly tobacco. There are many reasons for doing so, the most common being cultural reasons or peer pressure. Smoking is one of the most jeopardous thing affecting the people. It really is affecting the life of millions of humans.If we talk about the percentage of smokers in the world most of the young people are addicted to it, most of the teenagers, college going students and bachelors.Are they doing right on their part??
Is their anyone who could stop them?? It could be innumerable reasons showing the negative impacts of smoking, I have summed up with very few of them.
10.) AN UNNECESSARY EXPENSE
The people who smoke regularly or are addicted to it spent most of their savings in it, although they are aware of the side effects but still they are wasting their money for such an irrelevant cause. If we take an example, suppose a man smokes 5 cigarettes in a day on an average. If the cigarette costs Rs.3 each,then he is wasting Rs.15/day and Rs.450/month and Rs.5400/year. What if the person had saved this money for future references, it would have been summed up to lacks.
9.)IT CREATES DISTURBANCES IN THE FAMILY
Smoking indeed creates a bad impact on all our family members and relatives.For instance if we have kids in a family and their father is an active smoker it would also inculcate bad habbits in them too and they might also choose the same path.
8.) IT FILLS THE ENVIRONMENT WITH POLLUTION
The smoke produces harmful gases which are released into the atmosphere, cigarette smoking mainly produces CO(carbon monoxide) which is the most harmful gas. Inhaling it regularly may even cause death. Almost every cigarette is made up of hazardous chemicals, which in turn enormously contributes to the earth’s environment.
7.)IT RUINS YOUR LOOKS
Smoking on a regular basis also plays a vital role in destroying our physical appearance, it deprives the skin of the oxygen and nutrients it needs in order to retain its vibrant color and tone. Chronic smokers will often appear pale or have uneven skin tones. These changes may become apparent at a young age. Smoking also results in sagging skin and deeper wrinkles.It also leads to the development of bags under the eyes.Smoking also causes hair loss in both men and women.
6.)NOT ONLY THE SMOKER BUT THE PASSER BY IS ALSO AFFECTED i.e PASSIVE SMOKERS
Its an important point to be pondered upon that when a person smokes, it’s not only the person is getting affected but also the passer by is also victimized, these people are termed as PASSIVE SMOKERS, the people who are themselves not smoking but are suffering with it’s ill effects.So when a particular person is smoking the other one should be far away from that person in order to avoid his health. Passive smoker is more harmful than the active smoking some researches have revealed.
5.)IT RESULTS IN PREMATURE AGING
Smoking regularly results in early aging of a person who is addicted to it.It causes premature aging of your body cells through a process often termed as oxidative stress. It also causes premature graying of our hair, male smokers often become bald. Its also causes weight loss.
4.) IT MAKES MEN IMPOTENT
Some men who are active smokers, and they suffer from ED i.e impotence, which is indeed one of the biggest side effects.
3.)CHEMICALS FROM MOTHERS CA.N BE PASSED ON TO SMALL BABIES
Mothers of infants who smoke regularly is also very harmful for the little babies who have not yet even seen this outside world. Moreover, if a women is pregnant then she should avoid taking such things.Even the second hand effects small babies.
2.) REDUCES OUR LIFE SPAN
Every time you light up your cigarette remember “you are reducing your life each time by 11 minutes”. So “BEWARE” before lighting it up. Altogether if we just study the life span of a smoke addicted person, he reduces his life span by 10 years. Just think…!!! What about his family members, his small little kids, his parents and his near and dear ones. Is he not aware ?? or whether he is doing it deliberately?? Is there anyone who could help him quitting such hazardous materials??
1.)HARMS OUR HEALTH
The foremost reason why smoking is injurious is- it copiously harms our health. It is often said “If health is lost everything is lost” . The smoker should be made well versed with the fact that smoking adversely affects his/her health. If we particularly talk about cigarette, it contains nicotine and carbon monoxide which is considered to be the most dangerous chemicals which contribute in destroying the whole body of the person. Nicotine and carbon monoxide tend to increase the blood pressure and heart rate of the person which in turn causes heart attacks. Smoking also causes the narrowing of the blood vessels of the person which are responsible for blood flow in the body, which leads to cancer. Smoking even slows down the blood flow, thereby cutting the oxygen to reach each and every part of the body. 50% of the smokers die due to lung cancer. Smokers often suffer with a disease named bronchitis. There are innumerable ill effects. Rather than continuing smoking why don’t people quit?? They think they are getting rid of their stress, but they are wrong…!!!
