Smoking Affect Health

Many governments are trying to deter people from smoking with anti-smoking campaigns in mass media stressing the harmful long-term effects of smoking. 

Passive smoking, or secondhand smoking, which affects people in the immediate vicinity of smokers, is a major reason for the enforcement of smoking bans.

Most tobacco smokers begin during adolescence or early adulthood and often appeal to young people. The presence of high-status models and peers may also encourage smoking. Because teenagers are influenced more by their peers than by adults, attempts by parents, schools, and health professionals at preventing people from trying cigarettes are often unsuccessful.

Smokers often tells us that cigarettes help relieve feelings of stress, and when they got stressed then they'll smoke more, which means more bad things they inhaled. And even the dependent smokers need nicotine to remain feeling normal.

Risk Factor:
- Tobacco smoking is a known or probable cause of approximately 25 diseases.
- Smoking is a risk factor in Alzheimer's Disease
- Tobacco contributes to the hardening of the arteries, which can then become blocked and starve the heart of blood flow.
- Sudies have shown that men who smoke increase their chances of dying from the disease by more than 22 times, while women who smoke increase this risk by nearly 12 times.
- Smoking by parents following the birth is linked to sudden infant death syndrome, or cot death, and higher rates of infant respiratory illness, such as bronchitis, colds, and pneumonia.
