Smoking has become very common and fashionable, especially among young boys. This habit usually begins at school when boys try to experiment with every new thing that they can lay their hands on.
Despite the warnings given by doctors about the ill-effects of smoking, people continue to smoke. Smokers are addicted to it, and even if they want to, they cannot refrain from picking up a cigar or cigarette and puffing away. Some youngsters smoke for the sake of society and some feel that would make them appear liberated and broadminded.
In the beginning, a teenager may take a few puffs from his friend's cigarette; then comes a time when it becomes an indispensable part of his life. Several puffs lead to the formation of a habit. Soon smoking begins to affect the health of the smoker. He becomes a chain-smoker. This smoke is toxic and the nicotine in the cigarette is known to cause cancer. It is ironic that despite the fact that every smoker is aware of the ill effects of smoking, he does not give it up.
Tobacco companies are doing very well all over the world. Every packet of cigars or cigarettes has a warning inscribed in it: cigarette smoking is injurious to health." Yet the smoker never reads this warning and even if he reads it he never pays heed to it.
The government raises the price of tobacco every year. This is usually done to discourage people from smoking. Yet smokers continue to be slaves of this habit and often spend a substantial part of their earnings on cigarettes. Cigarette advertisements lure people into smoking and most active smokers cause a great deal of harm to passive smokers as well. Smokers force the members of their family to bear the ill effects of the smoke that they exhale. Smoking can be stopped by a strong will power and every person has the capacity to give it up once he sets his mind at doing so.
Cigarettes are very much harmful and injurious to the health of chain smokers and passive smokers. They cause a number of health problems such as lung cancer and heart attacks.
In fact, cigarette adverts have a direct effect on children and young people, who see them on TV and posters. These adverts are shown in such a way to give a promotional message for smoking. For example, they show the successful, attractive, popular people while smoking. Besides, they don't mention the dangers of smoking at all. Therefore, smoking is very common among young people, who are easily influenced by cigarette adverts. The young people have less perception of effects of smoking. These people are also unaware of facts about smoking cigarettes.
To solve this problem, cigarette advertising should be prevented from appearing to reduce the number of smokers. The business related to cigarette is against the welfare of human health. Therefore it is to be taxed with larger percentage.
The heart specialist hospital advising not to smoke as smoking is one cause of heart disease out of other many causes. Hospitals are telling that if anybody is reaching at 60th birthday, he must undergo heart check up. About 80 percent lung cancer cases are because of smoking. It is the general data.

Therefore I recommend not to destroy your health by smoking. Be addict of God gifted eatables not be addict of manmade injurious poisons.
