ADDICTION TO SMOKING.

Despite the fact that this topic has been and is still being discussed, I still want to talk about it. One cannot remain indifferent to hearing, reading or seeing such appalling things about smokers. It is self-defeating to harm oneself, choosing to do so and aware of the consequences. Personally, I find  this nonsense and would like to do something, not just talk, to help my peers think.

I believe that schools should intensify their initiatives for conferences and debates on this subject. Even if in a more gentle way and without creating discomfort, they should start with primary school children, even if  in the form of a game, to raise awareness and make the distinction between what is good for them and what is not.

Cigarette smoke is made up of over one hundred toxic, irritating and carcinogenic substances.  The most important are nicotine, a toxic alkaloid for the cardiovascular and nervous system, responsible for physical dependence.

 Prolonged intake of excessive amounts of tobacco can cause severe psychic dependence.   Smoking is believed to be responsible for 70,000 deaths a year.  Cigarette smoking affects every organ in the body, causing multiple diseases.  Among the most important are various types of cancer, cardiovascular diseases and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.  Passive smoking can also cause various diseases in adults and respiratory diseases in children.  Smoking also affects sports activity, because it decreases lung ventilation and the ability of the blood to carry oxygen due to higher levels of carboxyhemoglobin.  Lately, some tools for inhaling smoke have been circulating, such as electronic cigarettes.  They are often identified as a detox aid, but have also been identified as the first step towards classic smoking.
