Dangers of smoking

Every time you smoke a cigarette, you breathe in ammonia, arsenic, butane, cadmium, ethanol, toluene, and more. Tobacco smoke contains more than 4,000 different chemicals, 37 of which cause cancer. Smokeless tobacco, too is deadly, containing cancer-causing substances.

It’s no surprise that tobacco use leads to one of every five deaths in the United States. Tobacco kills more Americans than HIV/AIDS, alcohol, illegal drugs, car wrecks, suicide, and murder combined.

You’ve probably heard that smoking causes lung cancer. But did you know that tobacco attacks nearly every part your body? View the body to the right for a rundown of some of the damage tobacco does—from your brain to your big toe.

    it is because when you say just try one, then you get hooked up with it and you have to keep smoking and buying cigars and sometimes people would sell their houses for the money to buy cigars. DONT SMOKE.

    Ok what the heck! I mean if you smoke, you must want to commit suicide! Stop acting all cool like ” Oh hey everyone look at me I’m like a dragon because there is smoke comin’ out of my mouth! Rawr! I’m so cool!” IT IS KILLING YOU SO STOP BEFORE YOU DIE! I want to be a rockstar when I grow up but I don’t wanna be like all the other rockstars who smoke! I’m gonna have an awesome rock band, yet we will be smoke free! So if you smoke, please, just take my advice and stop! It doesnt make you cool! And it doesnt get you girls or anything else!

    Smoking stinks. I live in Virginia, and we have a lot of tobacco companies here. People need to know the danger and quit, unfortunately, it did say that smoking reprograms your brain to become addicted to tobacco. These people were never reasoned into smoking and they can’t be reasoned out of it. I wish people would stop. My parents used to smoke, but they quit.
