Should You Stop Smoking? (Part 3)

May 19, 2008
Why do people smoke? Any fairly learned person knows that smoking is harmful for the health, and the unavoidable question is: If they know that to smoke harms them, why do they do it?

They do it because they are addicted to the nicotine, that is a very powerful drug that is in the tobacco. The addiction to the nicotine is as strong as the one to the cocaine and to the heroine.

We can understand then that a person that is addicted, can find serious difficulties to be liberated of his addiction, but. If everybody knows that to smoke harms, why do they begin smoking?

The reasons why people begin to smoke are varied, to begin we should consider that people get this wrong habit at a very early age, where we are vulnerable in many senses, but the most common reasons are:

The bad example of someone of the family that smokes
To try to look of more age than we have.
To show more security and maturity.
Because all the friends do it and we fear to be different
The publicity it induces it
The sportsmen, actors and people that we admire do it

There are many the reasons why you can begin, but there's only one consequence for it: you will join up that human mass that is unable to appropriately take care of their own health, and the health of their dear beings. Vicious people that many times try to stop smoking but can't do it.

The addict to the cigarette doesn't like to be considered an addict like the one that consumes cocaine or other drugs, and he usually denies the graveness of what he does, or give a thousand excuses to justify his consumption, since the drug mines his willpower.

Then he says things like:

To smoke is a pleasure
I don't feel that it harms me
To smoke tranquilizes me
To smoke removes my appetite
I am not a vicious one
I can leave the cigarette when ever I want to
It is not going to harm me
I will leave it later on
Everybody dies of something

These addicts will spend their money daily in poisoning their health, their family and the environment, and they will follow doing it even when the cigarette has affected seriously different parts of their organism.

We also have to highlight that these physical addicts to the tobacco, also suffer other two addictions:

The psychological addiction to the cigarette
The social addiction to smoke in group

Damages That The Cigarettes Produce

The nicotine is an addictive drug, and as every drug it generates dependence and it enslaves the smoker for the rest of his life. We all have to die some day, but half of the smokers die as consequence of his bad habit, and they live about 20 years less than the non smokers.

The tobacco contains almost contains 50 chemical substances recognized as cancer producers. Almost all the of the lung cancer cases take place among the smokers

The tobacco is related with great part of the digestive, breathing, heart and vascular illnesses. And: The lowest sectors in the society, dedicate to the purchase of cigarettes, a money that is indispensable to allow a better life to all their family.

The women older than 35 years that smoke and take birth-control pills, are in the groups of high risk of suffering heart attacks, cerebral spills and clots in the legs veins. As likewise they can suffer spontaneous abortions and to give to light underweight babies.
