To Smoke or Not to Smoke?

by Jude Christoper Roxas on 19th August, 2011 at 7:45 AM CEST

Just recently, i noticed a never ending post in Facebook regarding smoking and it says:

“Dear Smokers,
Please get a plastic bag and cover yourself whenever you want to start smoking so you can enjoy the smoke 100% by yourself. I don’t want any percent of it. And some of my friends, too.
Cheers!”

It all started as a small campaign but eventually, it turned out to be a successful one, perhaps in some of the Asian countries, where people, after seeing the post from their friends, also reposted the very same message until I saw lots of it in my News Feed Section.

According to many studies, sidestream smokers (or those who do not smoke but the ones who are inhaling the smoke from the cigarette) has 30% more risk of getting lung cancer as compared to those who are smoking (mainsteam smokers). Now this is a very interesting finding, considering how ironic it is that those who do not smoke are the ones who get too much affected physically and can cause emotional and psychological sickness if the case gets worse.

The following pictures were gathered from children who supported the anti-smoking campaign:

 


Allan, 13


Kate, 8

Isn’t it amazing that these kids for example, already showed how can they be part in minimizing our social problems, on how can they show great enthusiasm, passion and determination to work with us even at a young age? Isn’t it more amazing that we will set as good models for them so that they can grow up like what they want for them and to enjoy the beauty of nature that we already have?

How about you? In your personal opinions, what are the other effects of smoking in our day to day lives? How can you help us in minimizing the number of smokers around the world?

YES!! i love this topic! HAHA. love the intro quote, jude! "bato bato sa langit" LOL :))

whenever i ride our public vehicle on my way home, there this huge sign that says "no smoking" BUT, the driver himself smokes. People can't really walk the talk, and it's a shame that there are those who are really insensitive. What I do when i pass by someone who smokes on my face? Cough hard and tell them that i have asthma (even if i don't have) and they'll be ashamed and just throw their cigars. >:P

what we can do to stop this 'phenomena'? A campaign against smoking which could include seminars on the effects of smoking, especially health issues. Show them pictures of how their lungs would look like after years of smoking! i'm sure they will be disgusted. LOL

Smoking is a bad habit! Here in our mother country smoking is not allowed in public. This is bad for someone who is smoking and to whom is beside. STOP SMOKING GUYS!

When I was in primary school, I also made pictures like these one :)

Smoking is a big problem, and so many people die because of it's consequences. But I have one 80 year old neighbor, he is smoking since he was 20. So when doctors hold seminars to talk how unhealthy is that habit, only few people attend that.
