Apparently, the smoking habit becomes a chronic, a disorder or a disease, which can last for many, many years and in the worse scenario, end up in a fatal health conditions as the following.

Now, before you continue reading just have a look at this videos from YouTube created by New York State Smokers’ Quitline https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLYabAHkFjg&feature=youtu.be and the next video is created by New York Health https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMfnFia-Jz0 after watching these videos, what comes to your mind? Cigarette tamper the heart ability to function normal, first, the brokerages it contracts is not good for the arteries because it limits the flow of blood and oxygen into the heart. As result of this cigarette implication to the heart, according to the American Lung Association, heart disease is number one cause of death in the United States. Now, picture yourself in an exact atmosphere or circumstances as the videos you just watched. Do you still want to smoke? According to American Lung Association, 87 percent of lung cancer death are as a result of cigarette smoking and that lung cancer kills more than any of the cancer’s. According to https://www.quit.com/, “Plan your Quit”, “The Effects of Smoking on Your Body” cigarette and cancer, it is estimated that at an approximately 70 of the chemicals in tobacco smoke causes cancer. Then again, Smoker’s Lung Pathology Photo Essay, “What about lung cancer in smokers”, elaborates that it is about approximately more than 60 carcinogens, “those chemicals that cause cancer” are found in smoke besides the already 200 toxic substances. Again, according to Smoker’s Lung Pathology Photo Essay, “From what do smokers die”, it commented that apart from smoker’s die because of prolong infection of pneumonia, cancers contributes to 30 percent of smoker’s death, which are directly associated with cigarette smoking. The cancers are lung cancer, cancers of the digestive, urinary, and genital system, and leukemia. I mean upon all these facts, you may say, quitting cigarette smoking is a hard pill to swallow, but you better wake up from slumber and smell the coffee before cigarettes eat you alive.
In fact, since cigarette smoking have a negative influence on the arteries where by blood flow into the brain is sometimes blocked, in the sense that it forces the brain to malfunction and rid of oxygen to the brain cell forcing the brain to start dying, stroke is the complication that develops at that stage. Stroke can bring about blurred speech, paralysis, tamper the brain ability and kills the brain. According to the America Lung Association, stroke is the number one cause of adult disability and fourth leading cause of death in the United States of America. Cigarette is bad for everyone and it even makes the air passage inflamed to the point that it brings about unexpected critical attack of asthma. Cigarette smoking also exposes one to respiratory infections and auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease because the immune system gets wicker. Smokers bones gradually become wicker and easily broken, which is known as osteoporosis. Pregnant women who smokes can also compromise the uterus, where by the fertilized egg is placed at the wrong location instead of the uterus, which is a system called Ectopic pregnancy. The male smokers also compromise the male reproduction since cigarette smoking causes detriment to the system and its sexual function ability. With pregnant women smokers, the affect can even be fatal since Premature and Low Birth-Weight Babies can be exposed to a higher detriment of health complications.
Sometimes, I really wonder if it is lack of education on the topic or people just do not care about the many, many high risk of health complications, which can result in death by puffing the deadly cigarettes as if it is a remedy to their problems. Even if one could understand the health complications of diabetes since cigarette smoking triggers type 2 diabetes and, in which any of these diabetes complications could result in death so easily, maybe the health awareness of these topics would be number one on everyone's mind. But then when I paused for a second thought, I realized that even those who are highly educated on these topics smokes cigarettes, meaning some people do not care if they smoke cigarettes and die or perhaps suffer for long time before death. Well, I think these people who smoke and know the consequences of the health risk of cigarettes are plain out inconsiderate because of the following reasons. Second hand smoke is dangerous, if you smoke around people you are transferring your deadly toxic to them especially those who have asthma. Please watch these video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMfnFia-Jz0 you will understand why second hand smoke also eat children alive.
Because of smoking cigarettes, type 2 diabetics could trigger so easily as compare to those who do not smoke as indicated in the above paragraph. There are so many deadly health complications embodied to a smoker who get the diabetes because of cigarette smoking as I illustrated earlier. I am stressing on the fact of blindness including nerve damage, heart and kidney diseases and poor circulation of blood to the legs and feet, which can result in amputation and that smoking must be stopped, period.
According to https://www.quit.com/, “Plan your Quit”, “The Effects of Smoking on Your Body” Smoking and Your Eyesight, it elaborates that cigarette smokers are in danger of losing their eyesight, the detriment that involve is greater for a smoker to develop diseases that will results in blindness.
