What are the Health Risks of Smoking Cigarettes? Facebook - QuitSmokingPlace

A number of people across Australia die each year because of smoking related complications. Even though constant efforts are being made to make the general population more aware about the perils of smoking, more and more people continue to light up their first smoke. Since cigarette companies do their best to sell their products, the onus to exercise restraint is on you.

The damage that smoking can do to your body is truly immense. With the plethora of toxic chemicals present in every cigarette that you smoke, smoking regularly can very well be compared to living in a continual acid rain downpour (however mild it might be). How do you think that would affect your physical well being? The chemicals that you inhale in the form of cigarette smoke do play havoc inside your body, and smoking has been known to cause a variety of health problems.

It is not just you who is at risk because of smoking, but those around you as well. Inhaling second-hand smoke is known to be just as dangerous, and your smoking, therefore, also exposes your family and friends to the medical complications that arise due to smoking. For example, instances of children suffering from breathing related problems, in a house where both parents smoke, are fairly common.

The medical complications that can arise because you smoke include:

This is, by no means, a comprehensive list of the health risks that you face because of smoking. Every time you light up from now on, do think about all the dangers that you’re subjecting yourself to in the form of cigarette smoke. Remember, while that little tobacco filled stick might be a great source of momentary relief or pleasure, the associated health risks make this a road that is best avoided. And if you’re already on it, then get off it as soon as you can.
