SMOKING AND TOBACCO

There are over 6 billion people in the world today and reportedly more than 2 billion smokers.  Tobacco use has been and continues to be a major threat to the health of people worldwide.  It is no wonder one of the most profitable public companies in the world is Phillip Morris who made $7.5 billion dollars in profit in 2010.

I am writing this article today to reach out to the thousands of people worldwide that are considering picking up the habit of smoking tobacco.  I urge you to consider the facts about smoking and understand the realities of nicotine addiction before you enter into a lifetime of misery and addiction.

Cigarette smokers suffer from an addiction to a drug that is found in tobacco.  Nicotine, a byproduct found in tobacco plants creates a chemical addiction in those who inhale, suck on, or ingest into their bodies in one form or another.  If you are a smoker, you will find yourself reaching for a cigarette about every 30 minutes.  That is the time it takes for your mind and body to go into nicotine withdrawal.  And it can take as little  as one cigarette to become addicted.

Most smokers believe that they enjoy smoking cigarettes, but the fact is they have an addiction and the joy they feel when inhaling a cigarette is only a response to satisfying withdrawal from the addiction to the drug nicotine.

There are roughly 4 billion people in the world who don't smoke, and don't crave a cigarette every 30 minutes.  They do not find smoking pleasurable or necessary.  Only when you become addicted to nicotine do you believe you are experiencing pleasure from smoking.  The reality is you do not experience pleasure in any way, it does not relive boredom, stress or any other contrived side effect that the tobacco companies lead you to believe.  It in fact causes serious diseases that will kill nearly half a million people in the United States alone this year.

While tobacco has been on a steady decline in the United States over the last 50 years, it has increased in other parts of the world where people are less knowledgeable about tobacco use and the ill effects it has on the body.  The less you know about the effects of tobacco use, the more inclined you are to begin smoking.  Tobacco companies are targeting these people who are not aware of the dangers of smoking in hopes of bringing them into their world of nicotine addiction.

Do not fall for the trap.  There is nothing cool or glamorous about sucking smoke into your body and blowing it out.  It is an illusion created by the most powerful companies in the world, the tobacco companies.   Once someone becomes addicted to smoking, it is incredibly difficult to quit.  While many are able to quit, there are millions of people around the world who are helplessly caught in a never ending trap that will take them from this earth before their time.

If you are just beginning smoking, you will find that the first cigarette you smoke tastes terrible.  It makes you dizzy, hurts your throat and there is absolutely no enjoyment from smoking.  But if you are determined to smoke another and then another you will find yourself quickly addicted and reaching for yet another about every 30 minutes.  It's hard to believe anyone would continue after the first, but that is the power of the advertising and brainwashing that the tobacco industry has had on our brains.

Nicotine is poison.  If you were to take enough nicotine in on sitting it would kill you.  But in smaller doses it just creates an addiction so that you keep reaching for it.  Tobacco companies are well aware of this and tailor their product to give you just enough nicotine to keep you addicted without killing you instantly.  Of course in time they will kill you.  It may take 5, 10, 15 years or longer, but eventually that company you have been paying thousands of dollars a year for your smokes will take you life.   But don't worry, each day thousands more people will begin smoking.  So if your worried about the tobacco companies going out of business, you need not. 

One tobacco company executive was once quoted as saying the following:

“WE DONT SMOKE THAT SHIT, WE JUST SELL IT. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO SMOKE TO THE YOUNG, THE POOR THE BLACK AND STUPID”.

RJ Reynolds tobacco company executive

Tobacco companies prey on our stupidity.  It is time that we fight back and don't pay another dime to the people trying to kill you. 

If you have already started smoking, now is the time to stop.  The longer you smoke, the more difficult it is to break the addiction. 

Please read my other articles on this blog about smoking and the effects it has on your body.  If you smoke now you must quit.  If you need help I hope that you find it on my site.  There are many articles that will give you the facts and remedies to end your addiction to nicotine.

If  you don't smoke, don't start.  If you smoke, stop.
