Does it not shock people that the tobacco companies are giving them a warning? Smoking does not only make people look bad, but it also effects their bodies internally in negative ways. Smoking can cause many life-threatening diseases.
Some of those diseases include chronic lung and heart disease; and cancer of the lungs, larynx, esophagi, and mouth. It can also cause heart attacks and strokes. Cigarette smoking accounts for 30 percent of all heart eases deaths. The carbon monoxide in the burning smoke causes more cholesterol clogging in the arteries.Smoking causes the artery walls to stiffen, and the chance of an artery rupturing increases. Nicotine can raise your blood pressure, heart rate, and the oxygen in your heart. A coronary spasm may occur during smoking, which may lead to chest pain, and a heart attack. When you smoke, the effects on your body are immediate.
Your pulse increases and your breathing becomes faster and more shallow. Plus your circulation begins to drop. Inhaling tobacco can give oh lung cancer and respiratory problems. When you inhale tobacco, the tobacco destroys the cilia in your esophagi.The cilia is what protects you from diseases, so therefore you are more likely to become sick, than a person who does not inhale tobacco.
Tobacco destroys lung tissue so you are more prone to lung cancer. If tobacco gets into your blood stream it takes away oxygen in your blood, slowing down physical activity. Not only does smoking effect people’s health, it also effects the way they look. First of all tobacco smoke has a drying effect on the skin and since smoking strict blood vessels, it reduces the amount of blood flowing to the skin which denies the skin of oxygen and essential nutrients.Since these two things happen, the skin gets damaged which makes it have a grayish, wasted appearance.
Not only does smoking effect the appearance of skin, it also effects the color of your teeth and the smell of your breath. Your teeth gradually change to an icky yellowish color and your breath wreaks of odor which could lead people away from you. Even though tobacco models display gleaming white teeth if you use tobacco your teeth will eventually turn yellow. Smoking can make you also have wrinkles and make you look about ten years older than you really are.
Tobacco has the same ingredients as rat poison which is (cyanide), dead frog preserver which is (formaldehyde) and toilet bowel cleaner which is (ammonia). Tobacco is even used by Some gardeners on their plants so the insects will stay away, and because insects are small it kills them instantly. Think about it if it can kill an insect then what do you think it is doing to you? Why would anyone want to inhale something that is used to kill insects and has such harmful chemicals in it.Research has proven that there are more than 250 harmful, toxic chemicals in tobacco smoke that can cause cancer.
I guess smokers just don’t realize what they are inhaling or maybe they are asking to die? The best solution for a smoker’s addiction is to quit cold turkey, put them down and don’t’ look back. But of course just like anything else that is easier said than done, and that’s why there are so many other options to make it a reality to quit. There are many different products on the market, and also certain types of support groups.Products such as nicotine patches, ND encoders chewing gum, are good examples of non-smoking aids. Quitting smoking can be quit a challenge, and I know this from first hand experience.
I smoked from the age of about twelve to about nineteen. And believe me when I decided to quit it wasn’t easy. Still to this day after not smoking for almost two years, if I’m around friends that are smoking I crave them. But I have to control that craving because want to be healthy and I don’t want to die from lung cancer. And I can honestly tell you that feel a hundred percent healthier since I’ve quit.So when someone tells me that hey are addicted and can’t stop, I tell them that anyone can control their addiction to nicotine they just have to be willing to and they have to want it bad enough. They have to overcome the feeling that they need it because in all reality no one really needs it. The question is, why do people start smoking? Is it because individuals give in to peer pressure, or do people just want to kick cool? Maybe, they started smoking to calm their nerves, which then lead slowly to addiction.
Seventy Seven percent of people who smoke do it out of stress and peer pressure, but that is not an excuse.
