Smoking is Good!

I started smoking at the age of 15. At first it was just to experiment and to impress girls, but later on I got hooked to it, specially after joining university. I’ve been smoking for a long time, and I still feel good about it.

Anyway, here are the top 5 reasons why smoking is good:

5 It reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Tourette’s syndrome, as well as estrogen-dependent endometrial cancer

4 It kills appetite, therefor you eat less (thus making you slimmer). You won’t find a supermodel who doesn’t smoke.

3 It helps you to concentrate on complex tasks (such as programming and engineering)

2 It reduces stress and anxiety dramatically

And the numero uno reason is:

1 It makes you feel good! (didn’t you notice everyone smokes after having sex?)

Smoking is not only good for you, it’s good for your country’s economy as well… a lot of people earn their living by making and selling cigarettes, and the government earns a large revenue as well. So smoke as much as you can, forget what the doctors say. No matter what you’re going to die anyway. πŸ˜‰

    And the numero uno reason is:
    (1) Smoking and impotence (smoking reduces sex power) – big reason for not smoking!
    Smoking can also cause fertility problems and can impact sexual health in both men and women. Girls who are on the pill or other hormone-based methods of birth control (like the patch or the ring) increase their risk of serious health problems, such as heart attacks, if they smoke.
    Men who smoked more than 20 cigarettes daily had 60 percent higher risk of erectile dysfunction, compared to men who never smoked. Erection can't occur unless blood can flow freely into the penis, so these blood vessels have to be in good condition. Smoking can damage the blood vessels and cause them to degenerate: nicotine narrows the arteries that lead to the penis, reducing blood flow and the pressure of blood in the penis.
    Erection problems in smokers may be an early warning signal that cigarettes are already damaging other areas of the body – such as the blood vessels that supply the heart.
    This narrowing effect increases over time, so if you haven't got problems now, things could change later.
    ➑ Other risks caused by smoking
    • Smoking raises blood pressure, which can cause hypertension (high blood pressure) – a risk factor for heart attacks and stroke.
    • Couples who smoke are more likely to have fertility problems than couples who are non-smokers.
    • Smoking worsens asthma and counteracts asthma medication by worsening the inflammation of the airways that the medicine tries to ease.
    • The blood vessels in the eye are sensitive and can be easily damaged by smoke, causing a bloodshot appearance and itchiness.
    • Heavy smokers are twice as likely to get macular degeneration, resulting in the gradual loss of eyesight.
    • Smokers run an increased risk of cataracts.
    • Smokers take 25 per cent more sick days year than non-smokers.
    • Smoking stains your teeth and gums.Smoking increases your risk of periodontal disease, which causes swollen gums, bad breath and teeth to fall out.
    • Smoking causes an acid taste in the mouth and contributes to the development of ulcers.
    • Smoking also affects your looks: smokers have paler skin and more wrinkles. This is because smoking reduces the blood supply to the skin and lowers levels of vitamin A.
    Well, obviously to avoid the problems above. But beyond this, consider
    • The money you'll save (1 pack per day approaches 30,000 taka in a year)
    • The time and trouble you'll save going to smoking areas.
    • You will feel better. This may not be as dramatic as some would paint the picture, at least over the short run, but over the long haul it is certainly true.
    • Food does smell and taste better.
    • Isn't it time you stopped giving the cigarette manufacturer's your money?
    Staying smoke free will give you a whole lot more of everything — more energy, better performance, better looks, more money in your pocket, and, in the long run, more life to live!

    THE BIG POINTS
    It is difficult, but extremely possible, to quit smoking
    The benefits of quitting begin almost immediately and continue to increase over time.
    You owe it to your health to really consider this, work on a plan now, and implement it very soon.
    It does not matter how long you've smoked. The benefits of quitting begin quickly . . . and last the rest of your life.
    Thinking about Quitting? Quit NOW and Start Living.

  • (e) Puffing helps to weaken bones, soft tissue, and spinal discs, causing all kinds of musculoskeletal
    pain, more broken bones and ruptured discs, and longer healing time. "A non-smoker’s
    leg heals an average of 80 percent faster than a smoker’s broken leg."

    (f)Smoking is heavily related to osteoporosis, the loss of bone mass, which results in brittle bones
    and more breaks.

    (g) Cigarettes interfere with your ability to have kids. "The fertility rates of women who smoke are
    about 30 percent lower than those of nonsmokers." If you’re an idiot who continues to smoke
    while you’re expecting Β— even in this day and age, some people, including stars Catherine Zeta Jones and Courtney Love, do this Β— you increase the risks of miscarriage, stillbirth, premature
    birth, low birth weight, underdevelopment, and cleft pallet. If your child is able to survive
    outside the womb, it will have a heavily elevated risk of crib death (SIDS), allergies, and
    intellectual impairment.

    (h) Smoking also does a serious number on sperm, resulting in more deformed cells, less ability of
    them to swim, smaller loads, and a drastic decrease in overall number of the little fellas. The
    larger population of misshapen sperm probably increases the risk of miscarriages and birth
    defects, so even if mommy doesn’t smoke, daddy could still cause problems. What’s more,
    because smoking hurts blood flow, male smokers are at least twice as likely to be unable to get it
    up.

  • (i) Besides shutting down blood flow to the little head, smoking interferes with the blood going to
    the big head in both sexes. This causes one quarter of all strokes. It also makes these strokes
    more likely to occur earlier in life and more likely to be fatal.

    (j) 􀀱"Depression Β— whether viewed as a trait, a symptom or a diagnosable disorder Β— is overrepresented
    among smokers." Unfortunately, it’s unclear how the two are related. Does smoking
    cause depression, or does depression lead to smoking? Or, most likely, do the two feed on each
    other in a vicious cycle?

    (k) "Smokers experience sudden hearing loss an average of 16 years earlier than do never
    smokers."

  • SMOKING CAUSES PROBLEMS OTHER THAN LUNG CANCER AND HEART
    DISEASE….
    Among some of the things that cancer sticks do:
    (a) Besides cancers of the head, neck, and lungs, ciggies are especially connected to cancers of the
    bladder, kidney, pancreas, and cervix. Newer evidence is adding leukemia and colorectal cancer
    to the list. Recent studies have also found at least a doubling of risk among smokers for cancers
    of the vulva and penis, as well as an eight-fold risk of anal cancer for men and a nine-fold risk
    for women.
    (b) Smoking trashes the ability of blood to flow, which results in a sixteen-fold greater risk of
    peripheral vascular disease. This triggers pain in the legs and arms, which often leads to an
    inability to walk and, in some instances, gangrene and/or amputation. Seventy-six percent of all
    cases are caused by smoking, more than for any other factor, including diabetes, obesity, and
    high blood pressure.
    (c) Smokers are at least two to three times more likely to develop the heartbreak of psoriasis. Even
    if that doesn't happen, they'll look old before their time. The American Council tells us,
    "Smokers in their 40s have facial wrinkles similar to those of nonsmokers in their 60s."
    (d) Smokers require more anesthesia for surgery, and they recover much more slowly. In fact,
    wounds of all kinds take longer to heal for smokers.

  • (l) Smokers and former smokers have an increased risk of developing cataracts, abnormal eye
    movements, inflammation of the optic nerve, permanent blindness from lack of blood flow, and
    the most severe form of macular degeneration.
    (m) It also makes it likelier that you'll develop diabetes, stomach ulcers, colon polyps, and Crohn's
    disease.
    (n) Smoking trashes the immune system in myriad ways, with the overall result being that you're
    more susceptible to disease and allergies.
    (o) And let's not forget that second-hand smoke has horrible effects on the estimated 42 percent of
    toddlers and infants who are forced to inhale it in their homes:

  • i started smoking at 9 (this would be before its cool and when youre a 'noshto meye' for even thinking these things) on account of the fact that i loved the smell of my dad's second hand smoke. Before you knew it, that pretty much where my allowance was being spent despite a good few lectures from when i would get caught, or someone would stumble across cig butts in my veranda.

  • i am a bit like you russel, i smoked my first cig when i was 8. i occasional smoke
    now just to chill out with my mates.. but i am wise enough to realise that it is bad
    for your health πŸ’‘ and it damages you lungs in the long run

  • !!!wow!!!smoking is good, of course untill you not r in the end!you've got 5good reason!right?i had a list 100 reason why people skip smoking…:|
    I was going to Chittagong last year!On my way in the bus I've seen a girl was crying(screaming)and asking her father to stop smoking for a while…she couldnt breath…but her father didnt listened to her.just think for a second what will be the girls mentality when she will grow up!and what will she think about her father!
    But the thing is we are free soul.we always walk the way we like…we don really care bout any one else…;)
