Smoking – The Good The Bad And The Ugly

This article explains smokers opinions and the pros and cons about smoking.

Lately I have been researching why people smoke, the good of it, the bad things about it and the other things some people just don’t know about.

The Good:

Most smokers say that it gives them a very strong bond with other smokers some have a sense of gratification when they smoke. The drug nicotine gives them a feeling of pleasure. Some smokers says it gives them a break from there kids, and it is used as a stress reliever.

The Bad:

The list goes on but here a just a few key points –
That horrid after smell, nagging cough all day … But that’s nothing compared to not being able to breathe properly, heart disease, Decayed teeth , skin and fingernails turn yellow, having lots of phlegm and losing your voice half way through a sentence. One huge problem about smoking it is a social drug such as alcohol making it very addictive and hard to quit. Also smoking doesn’t help your income at all, buying them 2 – 4 times a week at average $7 dollars adds up fairly quickly you could use that money to socialise such as going out with friends or seeing a movie.

The Ugly:

When you inhale smoke you put over 4,000 chemicals into your body just some of these are Benzene the chemical found in paint stripper, Hydrogen Cyanide used in rat poison Ammonia the bleach found in toilet cleaner.

Smoking can also have some terrible effects on your body some of these include death at the age of 40.

It can also make blood vessels and blood cells sticky causing dangerous fatty material to build up.

The chemicals can lead to Macular degeneration (blindness) this is because the chemicals get into the bloodstream and induce the damage to the macula in the back of the eye.

Conclusion Of these facts:

Overall most people think smoking is not fit for any lifestyle as it can lead to disease, blindness, amputations and even death. Australia in particular have banned it from most hospitals, working areas, and some restaurants and clubs only allow smoking in car parks or in a designated area.

  17. I smoke I only about 3 cigarettes a day just to relieve stress and barley inhale

  18. i think you should all stop espiecially if you have children because they could breath the air in and ruin there lungs and will probably do it when they are older aswell xxx

  19. that was amazing

  20. I just started smoking a few days ago, mainly because of my friends who smoke on a regular basis, I often took a few drags but after a while you start to crave cigarettes even if you never actually smoked a full one, I think that the bad facts about smoking are true I’m not going to try fabricate what is true and what isn’t, You do get a bad cough, I haven’t been smoking long enough to know about the yellow finger nails but my friends have been smoking for the last 5-6 years and there fine, so maybe it is over time and lack of hygiene plus the smoking. I don’t feel out of breathe at all even smoking 5-10 per day.

    I’m not saying it is cool or correct to smoke but I’m not trying to say it isn’t a good thing to start for the wrong reasons, I think a lot of people that do start smoking is either due to peer pressure or the lack of knowledge regarding smoking, I think the facts listed here are very intellectual and are good to know both for smokers and non smokers

  21. I have a stong opinion about smoking, a good thing should not be “socializing with friends”. You can socialize with other hobbies. Please ALL stop smoking – its really just hurting everyone.

  22. stupid

  24. tobacco taxes pays for freakin sidewalks that u walk on, roads that u drive on, street lights. child’s health care. and many more, stfu. its an addiction and its not RIGHT and JUST to tax an addiction. Lets just tax Tea, Soda, and anything with caffeine. you know while we are at it lets just tax alcohol out the wazzu because that effects and kills more ppl everywhere than tobacco. dagg-on-it people are so CLOSE minded.

  25. when u smoke u take 5-20mins. of ur life away 1,200 people die cause of smokeing so if u smoke quite right now or get some help
