Smoking Kills for Real!

Posted by BeautyGUMBO at 7:00 AM

I don't Smoke but some people I care about and love do, It amaze me how some people go natural but smoke cigarettes. It also amaze me how some people don't eat meat but smoke. The only reason I looked into this was because on YouTube some Happy to be Nappy Ladies will bash the hell out of relaxed ladies. Its like a big contradiction to me. But I do wanna thank the people who do smoke and dont Blow it in the non smoker's Face!


Chemicals In Cigarettes
The chemicals in cigarettes and tobacco smoke make smoking harmful. Tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 different chemicals. At least 50 are known carcinogens (cause cancer in humans) and many are poisonous.

Cigarettes are one of few products which can be sold legally which can harm and even kill you over time if used as intended. There are ongoing lawsuits in the USA which aim to hold tobacco companies responsible for the effects of smoking on the health of long term smokers.

Chemicals In Cigarettes Chemical Description
Benzene

Nicotine

This is the chemical which causes addiction.

Smoking kills. Not just the smoker, but the 2nd hand smoke kills as well. I have seen non-smoking spouses with predisposition to heart disease die of congenital heart failure before their smoking mates. I have seen asthmatic children suffer because adults in the home smoke. Unfortunately, from time to time I must close my windows & not enjoy the breeze because thoughtless smoking neighbors are chillin & puffing away. People who smoke often are oblivious also to the trash, carlessly flicking the buds on the ground or in our lawn. Many people are unaware of the toll it takes on the skin & contributing to premature aging re: beauty. This is an awesome post. Thanks for sharing.

I despise smoking. My dad smoked for many years and had a heart attack when he was in his 50s. Thankfully, he survived it and has quit smoking since then.

Smoking definitely kills.
