Dangers of SmokingIt goes without saying that smoking is a dangerous habit. In spite of knowing the truth, more that eighty percent people of our country are in the habit of smoking.
Smoking causes many fatal diseases. It causes cancer, heart attack, chronic bronchitis and some other diseases. One puff of cigarette smoke contains fifteen billion particles of injurious matters. Nicotine is one of them. It prevents the free flow of blood through the veins. This reduces the supply of oxygen in the body. It damages our lungs. It also harms the nerves, damages the brain and sometimes spoils character.
People addicted to smoking lose their appetite for food and energy for power. Smoking also pollutes the environment and the air. Besides, it causes irritation in the eye, offends the nose and unsettles the mind.
Smoking is so dangerous that the stench of cigarette is repulsive to a non-smoker. Moreover, it wastes a lot of money.
So all of us, irrespective of caste, creed, color, religion and age should launch a massive campaign against smoking.
