People come up with many intricate and clever excuses to assure themselves, as well as others, that they are not smokers. Listed below are some ideas that will help eliminate the problem of Smoking in the United States has recently seen a rapid increase in the percentage of teenagers who are picking up the habit. There are multiple factors that have contributed to the surge of teenage smokers, and several suggestions have been made to suppress it. Smoking is harmful to a smoker s health as well as the people around the smoker.
The first and second hand smoke can cause lung disease, such as emphysema and lung cancer. It can also cause cancer of the mouth and throat. A smoker s hands, breath, clothes, car, and house smell like cigarette smoke. They also have yellow teeth. That s why quitting is so important. Quitting is not easy, bu Cigarette Smoking For a long time now many people have different views about smoking in public places.
On the other hand non-smokers feel smokers violate their rights and endanger there life. Smoking causes heart disease, lung cancer and other serious illnesses. Cigarette smoking is the number one cause of lung cancer Steps to a Better Life The decision to quit smoking is one decision a person will never regret!
Smoking causes around , deaths each year, just in the United States. Quitting smoking cuts the risk of lung cancer, many other cancers, heart disease, stroke, other lung diseases, and other respiratory illnesses. Quitting smoking, while pregnant, also increases the chances of survival The primary goal of my behavior change project is not to quit smoking, but to cut back on the amount of cigarettes that I smoke per day.
Since I enjoy smoking after I eat, I plan to allow myself a cigarette after each meal, after that I am allowing myself three other cigarettes per day. This will total six cigarettes per day, which may seem like a lot to some people, but this is a dramatic cut Smoking and Relaxation 7 References Allen, J.
Journal of Health Behavior, 18, Jenks, J. Journal of Social Psychology, , Journal of Educational Research, 88, Journal of Drug Issu Imagine sitting in a restaurant unable to enjoy a meal due to the cloud of smoke coming from a neighbor s table. Smoking should be banned in public places because non-smokers have a right to clean air, and because secon What makes millions of teens worldwide inhale?
Now in order for something to make that list it has to: Smoking fits the categories perfectly. Teens start smoking for various reasons, In this report I will tell you the dangers of smoking. Smoking is one of the most preventable causes of death in our society. About one in five deaths in the US are results from using tobacco. More then half of all tobacco uses die much earlier then their normal life expectancy.
Smokers could be losing an average of 20 to 25 years of their life. Smoking has numerous other effects as wel When I was eleven years old, my best friend Michelle Baker and I thought that we would look more grown up if we started smoking. My parents smoked, so we devised a plan for me to steal their cigarettes, and then Michelle and I would meet behind K. Clark Middle School to smoke. We thought smoking would make us more popular with the older kids who hung out there.
The next morning I sne According to the American Lung Association, there are an estimated 50 million people who smoke. For some reason people just do not fully understand the risks they take by smoking. Cigarette smoking is a frequent cause for many health problems with smokers. To begin with, there are many hazardous ingredients in cigarette tobacco.
Some of the ingredients are poisonous or addictive. I sat in my chair, rigid, not knowing what to feel. Everyone around me was crying, but there were no tears on my cheek. Sobbing, they all walked by him; in groups they discussed how good he looked. The rituals, the talk, the crying, it was all too much for me.
I just sat there, silent, taking it all in. It took all my courage, but I got up. I walked slowly and apprehensively People do things everyday without caring how it will affect them or others. One of the things is smoking openly, especially in public places. Approximately one-fifth of all deaths in the United States can be blamed on smoking. Cigarette smoke delivers more than forty known cancer-causing chemicals. To Puff or Not to Puff Smoking cigarettes is not a good habit; it is a dangerous addiction that has the possibility of a fatal result.
Yet, I knowingly have picked up, and continued this stress relieving ritual. I am a smoker of two years, and have found nothing but scrutiny from my parents, far too many times.
It is time to accept the fact that your son or daughter is a smoker. Banning smoking in public places Before people start smoking they have a choice, but once you are a smoker that choice goes and you then become an addict. Smoking is the inhalation and exhalation of the fumes of burning tobacco.
The dried leaves of plants are smoked in a pipe or in cigar form, but mostly in cigarettes. European explores arriving in the western hemisphere observed na Decriptive Abstract The paper discussed statistics on college students.
Additionally, important heath problems with smoking cigarettes were presented. These health problems were broken up into different body systems and different risks assocciated with the body systems.
Teen Tobacco Wars Even though there is a seemingly huge restructuring of the tobacco marketing industry underway, it s all one giant shift in targeting with kids now semi-protected, and the college age under attack. To start, states have just begun to receive the huge amounts of money owed to them from tobacco settlements, but haven t used very much, if any, towards anti-tobacco campaigns. Hypothesis-The cotton balls will become black due to the smoke released from the cigarette. Research-The main health causes of smoking are lung cancer, Cancer of lips, gums, tongue, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bladder, cervix, and gallbladder cancer.
Also your skin will look years older than Living in a free country, we sometimes seem to take advantage of laws. Yes, the United States is a free country, but should we limit our rights for the concern of others? Although smokers have the God-given right to do what they want, where they want, we need to look at delicate matters, such as smoking in public, impartially.
Taking in consideration the majority of the opinion, peoples Smoking Why do people want to hurt themselves? Millions of people a day light up a cigarette knowing it hurts them physically, mentally, and has long term effects. Educating people is the key to stopping the epidemic, but sometimes experience can also help.
I have been smoking for two years now and am starting to notice some of the effects. Hazards of Smoking Smoking refers to the practice of inhaling smoke from the burning tobacco in a pipe, cigar, or most commonly, a cigarette. Smokers feel relaxation because tobacco contains nicotine that is very addictive to a person who smokes.
Smoking causes numerous hazards, which include: Cancers of the lung, breast, prosta Even though a number of commercials and school orientations have given the effects of smoking, the kids feel they are invincible to the effects smoking can cause. Rob Burke Com Mr. Hunn Persuasion speech Intro: Did you know that smoking related deaths total up to the 1 cause of death in peoples. Not only can it effect you personally but it can also harm others around you.
Why do people even start smoking? Some start young because th Smoking cigarettes decreases vitamin C levels to the adrenal glands. This weakens the adrenal glands, which in turn lowers epinephrine production. This will lower your energy levels, and could also be playing a role in your trouble breathing.
So my first suggestion is to work on building up your adrenals. To get the toxins out of your system, the best blood purifiers are chaparral, re For decades cigarette companies in America have claimed millions of lives, and continue doing so. Smoking cigarettes causes cancer in the mouth, lung, esophagus, kidney, pancreas, bladder and heart disease.
Even though clearly stated on the cigarette packs Surgeon Generals Warning: Smoking causes lung cancer, heart disease, emphysema, and may complicate pregnancy, yet billions of peop Each year thousands and thousands of people die from either smoking or second-hand smoke.
Smoking has not benefited anyone but the tobacco companies. They become rich while you are smoking away priceless year Chen starts off by pointing out the views of children who smoke, and the sense that smoking makes them more refined.
Although Chen also achnologes th According to these 2 article many teens decide to smoke because of peer pressure and looking cool. According to this recent article that was in the Detroit News about an Edsel Ford High School student they asked him why he started smoking and he said he didn t no he just did.
All most every article I came across said that Joe Camel was to blame but researchers aren t sure if that s still the Teen smoking has always been a factor in America, especially during High School. That is when teens are most likely to pick up the habit Teen Smokers PG We are constantly around people that smoke and usually offered cigarettes when they do smoke.
If smoking is so bad for you then why do so many teens smoke? Because they don't know how bad it is for them. In this essay there will be facts p Results of a recent study suggest that rebellious, risk-taking kids as young as 11 are more likely to smoke by the time they reach high school.
According to the report, children who demonstrate these personality traits in the 5th grade are most likely to smoke in the 12th grade. Targeting smoking in high school students is important since studies have shown that adolescents who smok In this article, Reuters Health states that daily smokers are more likely than nonsmokers to experience a panic attack for the first time.
Panic attacks may include all or some of the following symptoms: Additionally, many of the enzymes involved in tobacco carcinogen metabolism are also induced by other environmental factors such as alcohol use, dietary constituents, pesticide and xenobiotic exposure, hormonal status, etc, further complicating the interpretation of data.
The interaction of many of these genes with each other and the effect of environmental factors are just beginning to be examined. The adverse effects of cigarette smoke on human health are widely recognized.
It is the main etiological agent in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer, and is a known human carcinogen. While the risks to human health from active smoking are accepted, evidence supporting the risk of involuntary exposure to environmental tobacco smoke ETS has accumulated in recent years.
It is the main source of toxicant exposure by inhalation in nonsmokers. Despite recent regulations, smoking in public enterprises is not uncommon. However, despite an occasional report on the effect of secondhand smoke in nonsmokers, little attention was given to this aspect of smoking until about ETS is now regarded as a risk factor for development of lung cancer, cardiovascular disease and altered lung functions in passive smokers In general, children exposed to ETS show deterioration of lung function, more days of restricted activity, more pulmonary infections, more days in bed, more absences from school and more hospitalization than children living in nonsmoking homes Passive smoking is also implicated in increasing atherosclerosis in individuals 15 to 65 years of age.
Children exposed to ETS are at higher risk of developing cardiovascular disorders. Quantitative risk estimates were obtained by measuring the intimal-medial thickness of the carotid artery in a large longitudinal atherosclerosis risk study of 10, individuals. A recent meta-analysis 67 of 18 epidemiological studies 10 cohort and eight case-control further showed an increased RR of CAD in ETS-exposed individuals. These investigators also identified a significant dose-response relationship between the intensity of smoke exposure and risk of CAD in passive smokers.
Cardiovascular health risks of smoke-exposed women are of particular concern. Although the exposure to ETS is a current topic of debate in tobacco-related cancers and other lung diseases, the limited research at the basic experimental level provides a strong argument for launching experimental studies to support human data and explore disease mechanisms.
Follow-up of news stories, and local and state ordinances, leads to the conclusion that more communities and states are restricting exposure to secondhand smoke. The results are summarized below. A total of hits were obtained and a careful review of the abstracts provided the following distribution:. A similar search of the NIH database from to revealed grants in all award categories. The grant distribution by category was as follows:.
All the remaining grants generally supported behavioural and epidemiological studies in humans or other systems. Thus, it is clear that the need for basic experimental research in the field of smoking-associated diseases and the mechanisms through which tobacco smoke causes various diseases remain as important as they ever were.
The escalation of health care costs makes it even more necessary to find ways to protect the health of smokers and smoke-exposed individuals with any dietary or therapeutic interventions that hold promise. The most benefit is likely to result from detailed epidemiological studies complemented by specific molecular genotyping of various populations. Ideally, studies of this type will re-evaluate the prevalence of smoking and tobacco use and determine the exact nature of tobacco-related disease incidence, the role of contributory factors such as dietary habits, exposure to other substances and the genetic composition of subpopulations most at risk.
Various biochemical and molecular assays will need to be applied to screen nonsmoker and smoker populations for a variety of health risks. Analysis of the results from such studies will help identify the main interacting factors for various health risks and define relationships among various epidemiological parameters.
It would appear necessary to assemble teams of multidisciplinary investigators to perform these coordinated human studies in the field and in the laboratory. By nature, such studies are expensive and will involve commitment of resources, time and substantial amounts of funds to obtain meaningful results.
Given the limited resources and competing priorities for research funding, it is not easy to undertake such human studies. Hence, the experimental studies in animal models using inhalation exposure to whole smoke, and not individual constituents of smoke, is probably the next best approach for smoking and health programs. The human epidemiological studies described in the present review have identified a number of genes that appear to have a distinct role in various tobacco-related diseases, and cancers in particular.
Inability to control all the different variables in human studies has made it difficult to clearly define the contribution of various suspect genes in tobacco carcinogenesis.
With the recent commercial availability of a variety of transgenic and knock-out animals for research, it would be most desirable, as a first step, to use these animals to establish experimental models of various tobacco-related diseases which can then be used for determining the contribution of different genes to disease processes and for elucidation of the mechanism s of disease development.
Furthermore, these animal models can be used to identify various agents possessing protective and therapeutic potential. Research efforts in the area of smoking and health would benefit by focusing on studies of the in vivo effects of inhaled whole cigarette smoke in animal models of known specific genetic composition.
Selection of the genetic composition would also require a thorough consideration of the information available from human molecular epidemiological studies. As indicated earlier, there are a number of genes that clearly influence the development of smoke-related diseases.
In this context, many relevant transgenic and knock-out animals that can be effectively used for the study of tobacco-related diseases are now becoming available.
Tobacco abuse is a major public health problem and includes secondhand smoke exposure. Continued efforts to control and eliminate this abuse are a medical necessity.

Do e-cigarettes really not so harmful for health as traditional cigarettes or this opinion has appeared due to well-thought marketing strategy?
It is known the fact that habit is quite a strong phenomenon in human life. There are many habits that are quite easy to get, it can be done even accidentally. However, it can be difficult to break a habit.
As far as breaking the habit can be quite difficult, it is common practice to try not to destroy the habit at all but change it in some more positive way.
Nowadays people see such positive way in e-cigarettes as alternatives to the traditional tobacco cigarettes. A popularity of e-cigarettes and their widespread image as a harmless alternative to the traditional tobacco cigarettes could be the reason why there is quite a high number of studies which consider the harmfulness of the e-cigarettes.
However, even though the studies showed that in general e-cigarettes are less harmful than tobacco cigarettes, they are a quite new phenomenon from the historical view, thus their harmfulness is not conclusive.
The main and one of the most obvious argument to support harmless of the e-cigarettes is the fact that in their system it is lack of combustion. An operating principle of e-cigarettes is more like aerosol than the traditional tobacco cigarettes.
This can be a reason why, compared to traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes have less toxicant exposure for their users Callahan-Lyon, Priscilla ii However, comparing e-cigarettes with the traditional cigarettes, one can notice that e-cigarettes have a more complex system and elements that are more saturated with harmful substances.
In this way, product components, and secondhand aerosol of e-cigarettes are more harmful to the users and others that the traditional tobacco cigarettes. However, considering an effect of the e-cigarettes, one can say that it is more positive than the effect of the traditional tobacco cigarettes. Thus, e-cigarettes, especially those with nicotine, reduce lung function less than the traditional tobacco cigarettes Harrell, Paul Truman et al.
Besides, e-cigarettes do not appear to significantly affect complete blood count, in contradistinction to tobacco cigarettes Harrell, Paul Truman et al. Callahan-Lyon, Priscilla also noticed that PM emissions from e-cigarettes were fifteen times lower than emissions after use of traditional cigarettes In this way, the evidence from above clearly showed that effect of the e-cigarettes could be much less harmful to health than the effect of the traditional tobacco cigarettes.
There is one more fact that must be taken into account in this context. As far as e-cigarettes are considered as less harmful than the traditional tobacco cigarettes, there is a quite high number of people who regard e-cigarettes as a safe alternative or even as aids for treatment from nicotine addiction.
One must notice that such approach is not quite correct. The first and the most important fact is that e-cigarettes, even though they are less harmful than the traditional tobacco cigarettes still can harm health. Even though e-cigarettes are less harmful than the traditional cigarettes, they are not an absolutely safe alternative.
There is a huge body of research on smoking. There continues to be much research on smoking itself as a behavior and as a social phenomenon. Other related research areas in include research on tobacco and its ingredients, the chemical reactions of smoking, the after effects of smoking for smokers and third parties as well as the economics and financial realities of this industry.
Smoking Ban in Public Places. Tobacco as a stimulant can be used in several different ways but the most common way it is used is smoking it in the form of cigarettes. Smoking is legal in most countries in the world but in the last couple of years there have been debates about whether or not smokers should be allowed to smoke anywhere they want.
