Smoking is Fashion???  

Posted by Deepak Hariharan

My dear Brothers and Sisters of another mother.Do you smoke? You needn't answer me. Please quit smoking at least for mom's sake. We all have learnt from small classes in school about various harmful effects of smoking. Don't you dare disagree that! Despite these attempts made by our teachers at school, people still do smoke. The ironical thing is that they smoke even in public. Smoking not only harms the smoker but also the people around him while smoking. The cigarettes contain carcinogenic substances like nicotine which are absolutely repellent for the body. Smoking can lead to all sorts of lung diseases, heart attacks and other pulmonary diseases. Smoking can even cause mouth cancer. The thing we can observe is that the pathway through which the smoke passes inside our body is totally devastated. Right from mouth to lungs. The disease that the victim is gonna catch depends like a lottery. He/she can get a mouth cancer alone or sometimes a combo of mouth cancer + frequent heart attacks REALLY COOL, ISN'T IT????


DO YOU KNOW THAT:

According to recent world-wide survey, it is observed that
  • About a third of the male adult global population smokes
  • Every day, around 80,000-1,00,000 kids start smoking
  • Every eight seconds, someone dies from tobacco use. Around five million people around the world die of smoking every year
  • About 15 billion cigarettes are sold daily – or 10 million every minute
  • Among young teens (aged 13 to 15), about one in five smokes worldwide.

SMOKING AMONG CHILDREN

One of the devasting stigma in the society is smoking habit among children. I can rather use the terminology "SMOKING AMONG YOUTH", but i feel children would be more apt. The children in the age group 10-15 yrs old,who have jus started their lives are seen smoking. In that age where they are just developing in all aspects-mentally,physically,socially etc, smoking pose a hurdle for it. Smoking appeals progressive to them, the new age terminology is COOL.!Is smoking really cool? Having a cigarette bud in your mouth is sick rather than cool..!its stupid and foolish for oneself smoking despite knowing the mere fact that one is dying every second because of it! Kids assume themselves as adults once they start smoking. It is an assumption that once you start smoking you are an adult. Another main reason is fantasizing them with their favorite icons. With no offense, I would like to share something i experienced ie, I have seen people smoking because Shah Rukh Khan smokes in the movie DON. So it is the new trend. Smoking is latest fashion quotient and those who don't follow it are out-dated or geeky! See how things go around. Children, by smoking, end up distorting their internal organs. The harmful substance in the smoke inhibits the growth of all internal organs. The kids in their later life, maybe after 20 years will start to feel the harmful effects they incurred by smoking 20 yrs before. It is a slow assassin!



MY OPINION AND SUGGESTIONS :)

I strongly feel that making people aware of the facts regarding smoking, is never going to wake them up from the nutshells. Just by informing a smoker that around 1/3 of male population in world smokes, inspires or rather encourages him to smoke because when you smoke there are a lot of people smoking along with you in a way. I would rather be a part of a strong move or campaign that rather stresses on experiences rather than the science involved in smoking. People should be shaken off. Campaign must include very brutal effects of smoking. Media and Mass communication must be banned from telecasting anything that can tamper people like showing scenes involving smoking in movies, tv serials etc. It plays a significant role. People get inspired when they see their favorite stars smoke in mini as well as silver screen. Another main point I would like to share is, Why not banning cigarettes completely rather than a good-for-nothing statutary warning "SMOKING IS INJURIOUS TO HEALTH". I bet most smokers dont even care to read what's written.! Why isn't it banned completely if it's known that it kills and is of no use in a positive way.!! WAKE UP!


A video showing harmful effects!!


CLOCK IS TICKING TIME AWAY!!

Smoking a cigarette once can even lead to addiction. It is noticed generally that smoking for first time will be completely out of curiousity and to test how it feels. The first time will create a small decoy to try it once more. Person keeps trying which is called in terminology as addiction. Deeper you are addicted, harder it will be to quit smoking. But i advise all my brothers and sisters to quit smoking rather than prolonging it. Life may seem pretty cool and fun ride now. But it can turn against because of this smoking. Just remember the words

".....WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND.."

I would rather suggest you to take it as a warning than a threat that will turn into reality sooner or later. There is only one solution to come out of this cob-web that is to quit smoking. There is no use in decreasing the amount or frequency of your smoking pattern. Put a big round full stop..!!QUIT SMOKING..

To begin with, I really like the layout of your blog.
And coming to the issue at hand, you've made an impressive effort towards making your point clear. I can see how strongly you feel about the issue.. commendable.

As far as my views are concerned, I feel that it is entirely a matter of personal choice. I agree that smoking in public places should be banned, in order to ensure against the ill-effects of passive smoking on those who are exposed to second-hand smoke.

However, like all other lifestyle choices we are faced with, this one too, is to be left to the concern of an individual.

Nice awareness post...made ur points clear. Hope to see more and more awareness posts in future...good work

Reading these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is ever-permeating in this day and age, and I think it is safe to say that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further advances, the possibility of transferring our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about every once in a while.
