Once an individual forms a dependence with the substance, it ultimately has long-term health effects, such as death and loss of brain cells, liver damage, cirrhosis, pancreatitis, nerve damage. Tolerance is a long-term effect that causes the body to become accustomed to the excessive and high doses of alcohol, after drinking for a long span of time. They no longer experience the short-term effects that would convince a moderate drinker to stop. This tolerance is dangerous and can lead to alcoholism and result in the individual needing help to quit. When an individual has consumed alcohol their impaired, influencing them to do things they typically wouldn’t, if being in the right state of mind.
In addition to being the leading cause of mortality, smoking disrupts physical appearance, mental health and reduces the ability to do exercises that require endurance. Long-term smokers usually have yellow fingernails, yellowish-brownish teeth, smelly hair and wrinkly skin. The stench of cigarette smoke is very penetrating and it permeates everything around it. Smokers also have problems of anxiety and irritability because nicotine is also known as the “mood-altering drug” that reaches the nervous system in seconds and makes the person feel energized for a little while. When this effect subsides, the body craves for another cigarette, making the person irritated and anxious.
The gangs increase in numbers which means an increase in government problems. People will smoke in private places, ignoring the ban, these people are hard to monitor. People who do not smoke are unlikely to tell on smokers, in case they get in trouble with big gangs or even corrupt officers. If smoking is banned because it is harmful, then fast-food and even cars should be banned because they are also life threatening to human life as well. In my opinion, it is hard to ban smoking as there is a large amount of people addicted already.
Stress can be a good thing where it can motivate the person to reach their full potential but stress can also be a bad thing as it can damage a person’s health. 2. Physiological Effects of Stress This refers to how stress physically affects the body of a person whether it is inside the body within the internal organs or outside the body on skin, and these effects can be easier to notice than psychological effects. • Musculoskeletal System: when a person is stressed, the muscles tense up until the stress
Negative effects alcohol can have on a healthy lifestyle: • Alcoholism • Obesity and malnutrition • Alcohol-related accidents • Chronic pancreatitis • Alcoholic liver disease • Cancer • Damage to central nervous system and peripheral nervous system • Fetal alcohol syndrome • Aggression • Irresponsibility 1) The problem I have chosen to focus on is ‘alcohol related accidents’. Alcohol related accidents are any ‘accident’ that occurred whilst under the usage of alcohol. Examples of alcohol related accidents are: • Alcohol can make you underestimate your abilities and thus cause you to behave recklessly. • Alcohol slows you down. This means that it slows your brain down which thus effects your bodies responses.
Scientists Drinking has an extremely harmful effect on the brain and the body. According to Susan Tapert, a neuroscientist and professor of psychiatry at the University California San Diego, “Drinking has an impact on long-term brain function. When alcohol is consumed by ungerage teenagers, memory function, attention, visuospatial skills, and executive functioning are altered. This not only affects them in the moment, but can have deleterious effects on neuropsychological functioning” (Tapert, et al.). When analyzing Tapert’s findings, we see a similarity to Sandra A. Brown’s research from her experiment, “Neurocognitive Functioning of Adolescents”, a peer reviewed source, supporting it stating, “Alcohol use was associated with poorer performance on verbal and nonverbal
What I never seemed to understand is why anyone would smoke if they know it destroys their body. Smoking causes wrinkles, teeth discoloring, and a stinky breath. Smoking gives you a horrible breath making you kissable only to other smokers. Smoking starts at young ages because teenagers seem to think that when they hold a cigarette that seems cool and mature. But frankly it is the opposite how can you be cool and mature when you are putting toxins into your body.
Stress is very common, affecting us when we feel unable to handle some type of pressure. It can cause physical symptoms like headaches or breathlessness as well as making people feels anxious or low. These feelings can change our behavior. Feeling stressed often makes people drink alcohol or smoke more than usual (the free dictionary). It is also associated as an increased risk of depression.
If someone has been drinking and becomes violent, this can be a serious issue. Being drunk and violent at the same time can destroy and hurt people you care about. When you drunk, you have no control over your actions and this can easily be detrimental to your life. You can easily start abusing people you care about and hurt them emotional, physically, sexually and even verbally. Violence is often an excuse of alcohol abuse.
Smoking activity should continue being banned in public places so that a new page for health and development of the whole population would be open up. These are only a few out of many other effects that cigarette smoking can have, but to any sensible person they are more than enough to realize that smoking is bad. People cannot possibly be proud of calling themselves smokers. It is terrible for health as well as many other reasons. In the end, there are not benefits that one could gain by
