Please give up Smoking

By Norma Dsouza

Do you realise why cigarette packets carry a statutory warning that 'Smoking can cause cancer'. And still millions worldwide continue to ignore this warning sign and see their life diminish gradually in smoke.

Disturbing news is the rising number of women and children smokers.

In the last decade the fight against smoking has gained momentum and government support has lead to ordinance declaring public areas a non-smoking zones. Active programs under the leadership of WHO (World Health Organisation) have taken upon them to educate people against the evils of smoking.

Now you do not see billboards or electronic and print advertisements promoting smoking. This all means that we are moving into a no smoking era. It will take time but it is definite that anti smoking campaign will become stronger with all our support.

During a recent survey smokers were interviewed and their claim was that they felt the need to smoke to keep their mind in order. This is not true at all. In fact when smokers inhale cigarette smoke the nicotine passes straight into the brain and binds with receptor cells triggering a pleasure sensation. It is this feeling that the smokers seek but blindly claim that they need to keep their minds in order.

It does need elaborate study to determine that smokers have poor capacity to absorb oxygen through their lungs. They feel out of breadth doing mild exercise and are subject to bouts of cough that rise deep from within their lungs. And still you continue to smoke?

Medical research has lead to synthesis of numerous drugs that help you to quit smoking. Some of the more useful ones are Chantix, Zyban and Acomplia. These drugs contain chemicals that fool the brain into believing that it has had its quota of nicotine. These drugs also make withdrawal symptoms easy to bear gradually killing the urge to smoke. You can consult your doctor about taking these drugs if you are serious about quitting smoking.

If you are a smoker then we would suggest that you get first hand experience by talking to your near and dear ones and seek their opinion on your smoking habit. You will be surprised how few will actually be on your side.

It is a well known fact that active or passive smoking by pregnant women causes abnormalities in the fetus. Smoking weakens your auto immune system making you susceptible to respiratory viral infections. Smoking has been linked to diabetes too. And still you continue to smoke?

Your will power is the ultimate weapon that you have against this evil habit.

Our advice quit smoking for a healthy tomorrow.
