  36. Why Would Anyone Smoke?Cause Multiple Effects With just five cigarettes, a teen can become addicted for a lifetime to nicotine and the most popular drug delivery system of all, cigarettes. Most people begin smoking in their teens before they are mature enough to understand the lifelong ramifications of experimenting with this powerful drug, nicotine. Before they know it, these teens are addicted to nicotine and

  37. cigarette smoking. As a result the cigarette manufacturers have a life-long buyer . Most everyone knows that cigarette smoking is unhealthy, but few comprehend the incredible toll it takes on a person’s budget, social life and, most importantly, physical well-being. Cigarette smoking is very expensive. On average a pack of cigarettes costs around four dollars. A person smoking a pack a day spends $28 a week, $120 a month and $1,460 a year on cigarettes. Assuming that a person begins smoking at the age of 16 and lives

  38. to be 65, then over a lifetime, a smoker spends $71,540 on cigarettes. As if the expense of cigarettes is not enough to discourage one from starting, medical costs for a smoker are significantly higher than for the average individual and can add up to over a $100,000 in a lifetime. In addition, smokers pay more for health insurance and life insurance and no doubt even have to spend more money on cleaning clothing, furnishings and car interiors because of their habit. I would not be shocked if cigarette smoking cost a person $200,000 or

  39. more in a lifetime. This alone should motivate people not to get started. Cost aside, cigarette smoking impairs a person’s lifestyle. The longer one smokes, the less active one becomes. Reduced breathing capacity due to smoking inhibits a person from enjoying many physical activities. Smokers have to avoid so many places such as public buildings, restaurants and sports venues where smoking is prohibited. Also, many people do not enjoy being around smokers, and often times people who smoke end up only with

  40. friends who smoke are smokers. Many young people will not even consider dating a smoker, not to mention marrying one. Smoking really puts limits on a person’s lifestyle. If the negative impact of smoking on a person’s pocketbook and social life are not enough to deter one from this ugly habit, the physical consequences surely should. The scientific evidence is indisputable when it comes to smoking. Smoking cigarettes not only shortens one’s life expectancy significantly, but the diseases attributable to smoking, such as

  41. lung cancer and emphysema, are so bad that the last years of a smoker’s shortened life are lived in misery and pain. Anyone who wants to experience what it is like to function when breathing is impaired should try doing any activity while breathing through a straw. This is how smokers feel after years of smoking. Smokers are also more susceptible to illness due to decreased lung functioning, lack of exercise, and increased stress and anxiety which are side effects of the stimulant nicotine. Illness affects all aspects of one’s life. Since

  42. nicotine is a physically addictive drug, quitting is a very difficult and uncomfortable process that demands an incredible effort on the part of the quitter, and many smokers fail often in their attempts to quit. Cigarette smoking leads to an incredible domino effect of deteriorating health, serious illness and an early death. Knowing the cost, the negative effects of one’s lifestyle and the awful toll cigarette smoking takes on one’s health, why would one even experiment with this habit? The answer is complicated. Family and peer influences play

  43. major roles of influence on a teen. In addition, advertisements and adolescent curiosity tempt youngsters into experimenting with smoking. If one gets to the age of 21 without smoking a cigarette, the odds are great that he or she will never start. Hopefully, more and more young adults will avoid this dangerous habit and experience a smoke free lifetime of health, wealth and happiness.
