Why lots people are still smoking despite on the danger it causes to our Health? How does it affects on our society?

‘‘Cigarette smoking is dangerous to your health?” This is the packaging warning message.

Cigarette, from the french word “cigarette”, meaning “small cigar”. Is a small cylinder of finely cut tobacco leaves rolled in thin paper for smoking. The term cigarette is commonly used, refers to a tobacco but can apply to similar devices containing other herbs, such as ascloves or cannabis.

Rates of cigarette smoking is vary widely and have changed considerably over the course of history since cigarette were first widely used in the mid-20th century. While rates of smoking have over time leveled off or declined in the developed world, they continue to rise in developing nations.

Cigarette carry serious health risk, which are more prevalent in other tobacco products. Nicotine, the primary psychoactive chemical in tobacco and therefore cigarette is addictive to nicotine has been established as the psychopharmacologic mechanism that maintain cigarette smoking behavior. Although other substances in cigarettes are known to cause cancer, nicotine is the addictive substance in tobacco. Nicotine is an addictive drug just like heroin and cocaine, and it keeps people coming back for more. Anyone who starts smoking or using tobacco in other forms can become addicted to nicotine.

All cigarettes cause damage, and any tobacco smoking is dangerous. All tobacco is addictive.

These problems can steal away a person’s quality of life long before death. Smoking related illness can limit a persons daily life by making harder to breath, get around work or play quitting smoking, specially at younger ages, can reduce smoking related disability.

Smoking is a major cause of many other deadly health problems − heart disease, aneurysms, bronchitis, emphysema, and stroke. Smoking can make pneumonia and asthma worse and it has been linked to other health problems, including gum disease, cataracts, bone thinning, hip fractures, and peptic ulcers. Some studies have also linked smoking to macular degeneration, an eye disease that can cause blindness. Smoking can cause or worsen poor blood flow in the arms and legs (peripheral vascular disease or PVD.) Surgery to improve the blood flow often doesn’t work in people who keep smoking. Because of this, many vascular surgeons (surgeons who work on blood vessels) won’t do certain surgeries on patients with PVD unless they stop smoking. The smoke from cigarettes (called secondhand smoke or environmental tobacco smoke) can also have harmful health effects on those exposed to it. Adults and children can have health problems from breathing secondhand smoke.
