Let’s start to think smart and objective kay?? No hurt feeling here..
You might be very disappointed to have you to live in one roof with smokers and without you even realize, you have became a secondhand smoker. Even Though you don’t want to become one of them, you already one of the victims. 90% of my family is an active smokers. Only me who won’t smoke because i got an allergic with it. After 2 hours inhale secondhand smokes, i’ll have a non stop sneezing. But, when i tried to avoid or tell them to take a distance from me, they kind of ignored it or show their anger. But, fortunately for me, my family took it well after a while. It’s including my friend, They knew i don’t like people who is smoking and they keep on smoking in front of me. No word seems to infiltrate to their brain.
At least, Be a responsible smoker who aware of your surroundings. If you keep on smoking in a public area or non smoker area, you had become a potential killer. It’s just need to take more a little time for them to be killed by your tobacco toxic.
Maybe as a smoker, you won’t think that your cigarette cause any harm to us. But you are totally wrong. See the picture below:
I realized there’s something in tobacco that i can’t hold on and it caused my allergies. And i think it must be harmful. And here i found out what i would get from cigarettes:
Those diseases are leading from arsenic and ammonia to hydrogen cyanide — many of which have been proven to be toxic or to cause cancer (called carcinogens). High concentrations of many of these chemicals are found in secondhand smoke. In fact, secondhand smoke significantly increases a person’s risk for:
• respiratory infections (like bronchitis and pneumonia)
• asthma (secondhand smoke is a risk factor for the development of asthma and can trigger attacks in those who already have it)
• coughing, sore throats, sniffling, and sneezing
• heart disease
Still think nothing harmful to people surrounding on you?
Why Smokers still increase in Indonesia?
Another Story that i found out, childrens are a fast learner. They quickly adapt to their parents behavior. And they will become one of your potential smoker after you. And you try to lead them to one of the widest death gates in the world. the global tobacco epidemic kills nearly 6 million people, including more than 600,000 who die from exposure to second-hand smoke.
Some questions arise around this problem, why do our government didn’t do anything about this problem if it has led global killer? Increasing the price of tobacco through higher taxes is the single most effective way to encourage tobacco users to quit and prevent children from starting to smoke. Actually this kind of action has increasing the government income. And here become another problem for government to ignore this problem that many labors is working in this industry.
Another Fact that i found out, people who smoking a lot is a certain people who want to run away from their problem so they give a little relish with smoking (Smoking is a hard habit to break because tobacco contains nicotine, which is highly addictive. Like heroin or other addictive drugs, the body and mind quickly become so used to the nicotine in cigarettes that a person needs to have it just to feel normal) or people who want to show them self as a cool person.
Why with building a cool image?
Tobacco Companies made some advertising and events to put a cool image, courage, gentleman, woman killer and smart. Different sector with rich people who smoking because their want to use it as social tools. 70% people who live below the poverty are an addict smokers. It’s really ironic since they can use their money much better to cover their needs than to smoke. the law are not strict in a public area and the less of society consciousness also drive to increase smoker in Indonesia. (oh come on, you can see in a public transport or your work place, there are some people who ignore the rules).
One Comment from me, Smoking is a habit. If you want to stop it you have to start it by your strong willingness to stop it. No one can stop it except you. By stopping it, at least you make a lot saving and help to make less of another victims come from this small killer increased.
