  • ARE U A Smoker ..... Read ON

    Health is just one of the many important reasons why a smoker may choose to give up. For other convincing reasons why to stop.



    22% of all male deaths and 11% of all female deaths are due to smoking. Giving up smoking can reduce the risk of developing many smoking related illnesses. Within 10-15 years of giving up, an ex-smokers' risk of developing lung cancer is only slightly greater than someone who has never smoked

    What's in cigarette smoke?



    Tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, the vast majority of which are present either naturally in the tobacco and transfer into the smoke, or are formed when the tobacco is burnt.

      THE COST OF SMOKING



      The costs of smoking are high and we're not just talking money. Consider some of the less obvious costs below and the price a smoker may have to pay.
      Physical
      • Wheezing, shortness of breath
      • Lack of energy, poor concentration
      • Dull skin, nicotine-stained fingers, premature wrinkling
      • Reduced fertility, risky pregnancy, baby at risk
      • Damaged taste buds, stained teeth
      • Lung cancer, emphysema, stroke, heart attack - the list goes on
      • Damaged circulation, gangrene, amputation
      Social
      • Polluting the air with carcinogens
      • Children at higher risk of asthma, cot-death, bronchitis and glue ear
      • Smoke gets in your eyes
      • Dusty, stuffy home. Nicotine stains your walls as well as your fingers.
      • Spoilt clothes and furniture
      • Increased risk of fire in the home
      Financial

      At today's rates, a 20-a-day smoker will spend his major income over the next 20 years. Holidays you could have enjoyed; savings you could have built up; a home, car or important possessions you could have owned; toys and experiences you could have brought for your children.



      Emotional
      • Being a turn off to potential partners and the possibility of missing out on relationships
      • Feeling a slave to cigarettes
      • Ever present, nagging sense of guilt that you should give up
      • Disapproval and dislike, increasing pressure from a society that doesn't want to be subjected to smoke

        Smoking doesn't just affect you, but also your loved ones. To find out more about the potentially devastating effects of secondhand smoking,




        Secondhand smoking occurs when the non-smoker breathes in 'sidestream' smoke from the burning end of a cigarette and 'mainstream' smoke, which has been inhaled and then exhaled by the smoker. Non-smokers who breathe other people's tobacco smoke are exposed to the same 4,000 chemicals that a smoker inhales.
        Who is affected and how...
        • Children exposed to secondhand smoke are twice as likely to get chest illnesses such as croup, pneumonia bronchitis and bronchiolitis
        • Children exposed to secondhand smoke are also more likely to get ear infections, tonsillitis, wheezing and childhood asthma
        • Children of smokers are more likely to smoke themselves
        • According to government statistics, half of British children live in households where at least one parent smokes
        • Non-smokers exposed to secondhand smoke are put at risk of the same serious diseases as smokers
        • Cigarette smoke is classified as a cause of cancer
        Protecting the public...

        Smoking is now banned from many public places, including public transport, theatres, cinemas and public buildings, and it is expected that this list will continue to grow. Imagine if smoking became such a social stigma, that the only place where it was acceptable was your home, and quite possibly even there you'd be putting someone else at risk.






        Smoking is not just a bad habit, but a complex addiction. Experts believe that nicotine exerts its powerful addictive effects by altering two chemicals in the brain - dopamine and noradrenaline - known as neurotransmitters. Within seven seconds of inhaling, a concentrated dose of nicotine is delivered directly to the brain, producing a nicotine "rush". Many smokers interpret this rush as one of pleasure, but in reality the pleasure is misunderstood. It only appears pleasurable because it satisfies the craving created by the last cigarette. Over time the smoker has become victim to the classic cycle of addiction.

        The addictive cycle

        If this is hard to believe, think back to the first few cigarettes you smoked. Most smokers will admit that these were anything but pleasurable. In fact, you probably had to persist until the addictive cycle had taken hold before smoking gave you any kind of "pleasure". What smokers perceive as pleasure is, in reality, simply the relief of satisfying a craving for nicotine. After smoking a cigarette, withdrawal can set in as quickly as 15 minutes later.
        Breaking the addiction

        Don't be too alarmed though! Despite its addictive nature, nicotine doesn't hang around in your body long (about 48 hours) once you've stopped smoking. For those who choose to go cold turkey, withdrawal symptoms are likely to be at their most intense in the first two or three days and will gradually fade away over the following two or three weeks. For those who simply can't contemplate going cold turkey, research indicates that using nicotine replacement therapy - now available on prescription - can more than double your chances of staying stopped.

          Mental Strength

          It helps to remember that sometimes we ascribe too much power to cigarettes. They don't have the power to change anything or to make things better. As Freud once said, 'Sometimes, a cigarette is just a cigarette'.

          However, to stop and stay stopped you do need to keep a strong and focused mind. The associations you have established with smoking are likely to outlast your physical addiction to nicotine. Reminding yourself that you are in control, together with a positive mental attitude will help you to stay stopped - and enjoy life as a non-smoker!

              What if My Friend Smokes?



              If you have a friend who smokes or uses tobacco, you can help him or her by encouraging the person to quit. Here are some reasons you can mention:
              • It will hurt his or her health.
              • It will make his or her breath stinky.
              • It will turn his or her teeth yellow.
              • It will give him or her less endurance when running or playing sports.
              • It's expensive.
              • It's illegal to buy cigarettes when you're underage.
              If you think it will help, you could print out articles like this one for your friend. He or she may be interested in learning more about the dangers of smoking. But the person also could be a little angry. No one likes to hear that they're doing something wrong. If your friend gets upset, don't push it too much. In time, he or she may realize you are right.
              In the meantime, it could help to talk with a parent or a school counselor to say you're worried about your friend. When your friend is ready, a grown-up can help him or her quit for good. If your friend decides to quit, support him or her.

                    are you a smoker... than this is for you




                    Everyone knows that smoking can cause cancer when you get older, but did you know that it also has bad effects on your body right now? A cigarette contains about 4000 chemicals, many of which are poisonous. Some of the worst ones are:
                    Nicotine: a deadly poison
                    Arsenic: used in rat poison
                    Methane: a component of rocket fuel
                    Ammonia: found in floor cleaner
                    Cadmium: used in batteries
                    Carbon Monoxide: part of car exhaust
                    Formaldehyde: used to preserve body tissue
                    Butane: lighter fluid
                    Hydrogen Cyanide: the poison used in gas chambers
                    --------------------------------------------------------------------


                    Every time you inhale smoke from a cigarette, you kill some of the air sacks in your lungs, called alveoli. These air sacks are where the oxygen that you breathe in is transferred into your blood. Alveoli don't grow back, so when you destroy them, you have permanently destroyed part of your lungs. This means that you won't do as well in activities where breathing is important, like sports, dancing, or singing.

                    Smoking paralyzes the cilia that line your lungs. Cilia are little hairlike structures that move back and forth to sweep particles out of your lungs. When you smoke, the cilia can't move and can't do their job. So dust, pollen, and other things that you inhale sit in your lungs and build up. Also, there are a lot of particles in smoke that get into your lungs. Since your cilia are paralyzed because of the smoke and can't clean them out, the particles sit in your lungs and form tar.

                    so stop smoking please..
                    People say : "People living in glass houses shouldn't throw stones at others"
                    I would like to add : "They shouldn't change clothes in them either"
