Smoking can cause serious harm to your body. It can affect your body from the inside out. Some of the effects occur sooner while others occur over a long period of time.

According to the 2012 Surgeon General 's Report, one out of three adolescence who smoke, only will quit, while another one will die form tobacco-related causes. Most adolescence who begins smoking at a early age, don 't think about the long-term health problems associated with tobacco use. Because of nicotine, a highly addictive drug, many youth will continue to smoke into adulthood, often with deadly consequences (American Cancer Society, 2015).
1. Prohibit work to tobacco smoke and in public places (stations, restaurants, etc.). This is first of all to protect the people present against passive smoking. Moreover, the fact that the places and times when it is possible to smoke become scarce led some smokers to quit, or at least to reduce their consumption. And non-trivialization of cigarette smoking exerts a preventive effect, especially with regard to young people who lack adult role models who smoke .... Finally, we must remember that where tobacco smoke was banned in cafes and restaurants (some US and Australian states), there was no reduction in turnover of Coffee.
Should smoking be illegal? Yes, you may ask yourself why? Simply because it results in a large number of death’s (the most in the uk to be precise).Most of us aren’t aware of the side effects from smoking cigarettes, which is very worrying to me. According to the NHS, its estimated that over 120,000 deaths are caused by smoking annually. All those cigarettes that you smoke then leads to horrible effects later in life; e.g. Cancer, Brain Damage, high blood pressure, gum disease etc. People still somehow find some sort of satisfaction whilst smoking cigarettes, so why do people continue to do so?

In the United States, cigarette smoking is still the leading cause of preventable disease and mortality (National Institute on Drug Abuse, 2016). It is known that the traditional cigarette’s nicotine content causes addiction, and its combustion causes health danger. The electronic cigarette is promoted to be the new alternative that is safer than smoking a traditional cigarette. However, is the electronic cigarette safer than tobacco cigarette? The electronic cigarette entered the marketplace in the mid-2000s; its use has grown rapidly since then. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the use of an electronic cigarette had a 900 percent increase from year 2011 to 2015. The use of traditional cigarettes among youth has been reduced
Tobacco, as it is often smoked today, is largely derived from the Nicotiana tabacum plant, a broad-leafed herb native to the Americas. Pipes, Snuff, and chewing tobacco were the most common forms of tools people used for tobacco in the twentieth century. Smoking cigarettes wasn’t popular until the nineteenth century. An invention was made before cigarettes became popular, in 1884 there was this machine made called “Bonsack rolling machine” it gave a taste to tobacco and also made it easier to inhale. In 1964, the United States Surgeon General’s had a report on smoking declaring cigarettes is a major source of health hazards, promoting a decline in U.S. cigarette consumption. In 1994 only about one in four Americans over the age of sixteen was
A sixty five-year-old man lies in the street, powerlessly gripping his chest. His frail bones are not enough to support his damaged body any longer, and his harsh cough continues to deteriorate his esophagus. Fifty years ago, the same man was offered his first cigarette at the age of fifteen, a time that would be a defining moment for a lifetime of pain. What started as an inconsequential, innocent habit in his childhood slowly became the addiction that took his life. The taste of his first cigarette was not filled with merely the amount of regret and bitterness as his last. While a fictitious story, it is not a far fetched one; every day, twenty five hundred children try a cigarette or tobacco product for the first time, often offered by an older peer. One
-The cost of cigarettes has been often used as a factor to quit smoking in many communities throughout America. Many believe that an increase in taxation of cigarettes will be able to help many to consider and even quit smoking. This study looks into how a new tax on cigarettes impacts the overall view of smoking and if this view can cause significant change on smoking behavior. The study was performed with the use of smoking participants which totaled 727. They were asked whether an increase in taxes would lead to them thinking about quitting, cutting down on their intake of cigarettes or actually making an attempt to quit. Their
Tobacco use in teens are a serious problem. I remember when I was in high school almost everybody in my class was either smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco. It had gotten so bad that the school had to ban chewing tobacco from the school regardless if you were the legal age to buy it. It was always against the rules to smoke cigarettes on campus but the students found a way around it. Now there are E-cigarettes. There have been studies that suggest that E-cigs aren’t that much healthier than regular cigarettes. Tobacco awareness is stronger than ever before. Schools and the community should continue to work together to prevent tobacco use as well as other drug use. The tobacco companies are targeting the children specifically. With education
Tobacco is believed to have existed longer than the United States! Over three decades ago, the government of the U.S established cancer as emanating from tobacco
In the United States, children in public school are required to take a basic health class. It is in this class that children learn the negative long-term effects of smoking cigarettes. If a child comes home smelling like cigarettes all parents can guarantee that the topic will not be taken lightly. I can easily recall an earlier time in my life when I was against cigarettes but today such a position would sound hypocritical coming from me. Now more than ever, cigarette smokers are being scrutinized for ignorance but smoking remains seen at Georgia State as well as many other college campuses. Many young cigarette smokers use smoking as a social activity to meet people in an unfamiliar environment.
Every tobacco user makes a choice, that choice is whether they should continue this destructive addictive dependency or stop it from taking over their lives; smokers regret the time which they have to make this choice as just the thought of quitting brings them chills. Smoking should be prohibited, not for the underage, not for specific people but for everybody! If smoking is prohibited it will force people to quit and it will show them that they are not only able to survive without cigarettes or e-cigarettes, but without them they are feeling their best. Moreover, they are happier because they have just quit what has been destructing their health every day. It does not matter if it is smoked or inhaled second hand, it is hazardous. The most
Although there has been considerable success, much work still remains. Tobacco kills over 400,000 Americans each year, primarily from heart disease, cancer, and respiratory diseases. Current estimates indicate that tobacco has killed approximately 4.5 million Americans from 1990 to 2000. Considering only health care costs and lost productivity, tobacco use amounts to $65 billion per year. In addition, the alarming increase in tobacco use among youths gives little cause for
Humanity, justly, is preoccupied with its wellbeing. We are easily terrorized by many aspects of public health including but not limited to novel infectious agents, increasing prevalence of common diseases such as obesity and even the potential of bioterrorism. It is difficult to comprehend how a species that seems to be so concerned about their health, has for generations turned a blind eye to a major public health concern. Deaths due to tobacco are completely preventable. Although we have made some impressive strides towards ending this loss of life, clearly more work needs to be done. After a century and a half of interacting with this public health phenomena (first commercialized cigarette sold in 1865 from a tobacco farm in North Carolina), we have come to understand it well, how it affects us, why it’s widespread and how it should be prevented. In spite of the many efforts and strategies aimed at hindering the spread of tobacco, it
