In your daily life, you come upon this slogan
again and again-
“CIGARETTE SMOKING IS INJURIOUS TO HEALTH”
Whereever you go, let it be cinema halls, malls, offices, buses, trains you are reminded again and again by slogans and notices to recognize that cigarette smoking is a prohibited, bad practice as well as not good for your health. But you never try to understand this.
When you go to enjoy a movie along with your family or friends, you come across this slogan again and again in the movie whenever the characters are depicted to be smoking. But neither you nor your companions bother about this. In the interval you go out, take a round of smoke and return with some snacks for your partner and children. Neither you nor the others, whoever would have just returned back having a smoke, feel even a bit of guilt-consciousness. You simply continue watching the movie and many more glimpses of that unwarranted slogan.
The same thing happens when you watch your favorite TV serials on your small screen. You have become so accustomed to this slogan, that it never strikes to you that it is applicable to you also. You may be feeling it is meant for others, who might be more dangerously smoking. Or else, you may be thinking this way also that since the law is forcing them to flash the slogan, so they are twinkling it again and again, and nothing more than that. So don’t bother about it.But, when will you be awakening? After smoking attacks your health? Or after some other one, whom you may be loving, is attacked by it?
Do you ever know that a burned cigarette produces thousands of chemicals? When you put it in your mouth and inhale smoke, hundreds of poisonous gases enter into your body and many of them tend to cause cancer in you. Further, you must remember, that whenever you smoke, the smoke released will affect your companions also.It is a clinically proven fact that cigarette smoking or tobacco causes cancer. It may be lung cancer, liver cancer or even kidney cancer.
So, why do you spoil your life and the life of your neighbors with this bad habit of cigarette smoking? Why don’t you leave this bad habit and contribute to the health of others and yours? Why can’t you leave it? Think of your beloved ones and leave smoking for their sake. It may be very hard to leave the habit at once. But, you can leave it step by step. First, you reduce the quantity of cigarettes. If you are consuming six cigarettes a day, try to make it three or four in the first instance. You make up your mind that you have to do this for the sake of your beloved ones. You control yourself and try to divert your attention from it. Make yourself a bit stubborn. Adopt to some other habit like having fruit juice, taking fruits, or some thing healthy with that money. Slowly reduce to two smokes, one smoke and nil.
All that you need here is the will power. The will to leave smoking habit. The will to do something good for your beloved ones. The will to make them happy and healthy and there-by improving your health. So, next time when you go for purchasing a cigarette pack, please do think over the slogan on it, then think about your beloved ones and have some care for them. Then, you will definitely be able to leave this bad habit of smoking. Nothing is hard, if you have the will power and a sense of feeling for your beloved ones.
