Why Smoking is not for You

smoking is deadly
Smoking is a hard habit to stop because tobacco contains nicotine, which is highly addictive. Like other addictive drugs, the body and mind quickly become so used to the nicotine in cigarettes that a person needs to have it just to feel normal. How Smoking Affects Your Health? There are no valid reasons to start smoking. The body doesn't need tobacco the way it needs nutrients and exercise. And there are many chemicals found in cigarettes, like cyanide, these chemical is actually poisons that can kill in high amount doses. The consequences of smoking may seem very far off, but long-term health problems aren't the only hazard of smoking. Nicotine and the other toxins in cigarettes, cigars, and pipes can affect a person's body quickly, which means that teen smokers experience many of these problems. People start smoking for a variety of different reasons.

Pale skin- Because smoking restricts blood vessels, it can prevent oxygen and nutrients from getting to the skin — which is why smokers often show pale and unhealthy. Studies also found smoking to be linked to an increased risk of getting a type of skin disease called psoriasis.
Increased risk of illness-Medical studies show that smokers get more colds, flu, bronchitis, and pneumonia than nonsmokers. And people with certain health conditions, like asthma, become more sick if they smoke (and often if they're just around people who smoke). Because teens who smoke as a way to manage weight often light up instead of eating, their bodies also lack the nutrients they need to grow and fight off illness properly.

Is there a safe tobacco? The answer is a simple no. Many people wanted to know if pipes and cigars are safer than cigarettes. Or is it better to switch to low tar cigarettes (called "Lights"or "Ultra Lights") or to use smokeless cigarettes. The truth is that there is just no safe form of tobacco. All forms of smoke are dangerous to smokers and nonsmokers alike.
