Every body knows that smoking is injurious to health. But still young people indulge in the habit with reckless abandon. Why? It’s a burning question. I think this is so because the young generation idolises what is depicted in many movies and on the media.

The fact that cigarette smoking is injurious is health is a well known and oft-quoted but seldom adopted and almost always overlooked. Smoking is hazardous to health in many ways. Smokers tend to ignore the impact of smoking on dental health. The habit not only creates dental health problems, but also leads to the worsening of existing dental conditions. Cigarette smoking can cause various diseases and can destroy almost all human organs; there are at least 24 fatal diseases linked to the habit of smoking and they include cancer and heart disease. Adverse effects of smoking to health will usually appear over a long period of time.

Tobacco products include shaped cigarettes, cigarettes, cigars, pipes, aspirating tobacco, smokeless tobacco etc. Hence, its not just cigarettes but also these products that should be avoided. Smokers not only cause health problems to themselves but also to the people around them. Quitting may be hard but it’s the best thing to do.
