for the conclusion is smoking is a habit that should be avoided from the start. smoking can give more negative effect not only for the smoker but every people surrounding them. so, every people must play a role to responsility and solve this problem. if this habit can not to eliminate immediately, it can destroy life, family, community, country, and soon


smoking can become more effect not only for the smoker but all people surrounding them. now i want share about five effect smoking for our healthy. They first effect is about fertility. smoking can descrease our fertility. for men, smoking can reduce their sperm and chromosome. for the women, this habit also can effect their fertility and make them menopous early. from the research show that, women who as a smoker can menapous two years early than non smoker. so, this situation can make them difficult to pragnant and get the baby.if she was pragnant, her baby maybe born in not good condition and maybe have physical disability.

the second effect is weakness in immune system..a cigarettes contains a variety of toxins and chemical such as carbon monoxide, tar, nicotin, and soon..all the contains can become dangerous and make weakness in immune system. when, immune system was less, the people can not protect their body from any disease and he or she more easy to get disease such as lung cancer, heart cancer, and others. besides that, if immune system are weakness, they unable to work properly.

smoking also can pollute the air and can give effect for our respiratory system. a cigarette have over than 4000 of chemicals,poisons, and drug. so when he or she was smoking, they was release substances can cause pollute and become air pollution. it also can effect the quality of air. if air was very dirty, it can effect our respiratory system. when someone breathing dirty air, it can obstacle our body system.

after that, from the result show that smoking can cause 25 types of cancer and 90% from the ammount are smoker. the last effect is smoking can reduce our physical and edurance. in a tobacco have carbon monoxide hemoglobin will to combine with blood in body and prevent oxygen hemoglobin to join. so this situation also can effect respiratory system and make somebody get a blood high pressure..



siblings and parennt are role model for children.if a children`s parent smoke, their children are three time more likely to smoke themselves. so when they look their parent or sibling are smoke,they want to do their own research with the smoking..originally, they just want to feel and try but eventually it will remain a habit and they also cannot stop this habit..

for the adult, they usually smoke because they want to deal with stress such as stress at work, financial problem, domestic problem, and others. so, they think when they skoming, they will be able to forget all problem for a while without think bad effects they can get from smoking



Although many doctors may have differing opinions on what is or isn't okay for a pregnant woman to do, there is one activity that you'll find no doctor approves.........This activity is smoking. Smoking during pregnancy is strongly discouraged, and even though it is hard to quit smoking, statistics give many good reasons why pregnant women must not smoke...

Smoking during pregnancy leads to a variety of health problems, not only for the mother, but for the baby as well. This is because harmful chemicals in cigarettes, such as carbon monoxide, do cross the placenta to reach the baby. Nicotine also is delivered to the baby when the mother smokes........One of the most common problems for the baby whose mother smokes while pregnant is low birth weight....... Some of the low birth weight babies born to smokers also arrived early because their mothers smoked. Smoking can even cause placental abruption and death of the baby.......

After a baby is born, a big concern of many parents is SIDS, or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Studies have shown that when a woman smokes during her pregnancy, the baby has up to a 3 percent higher chance of dying from SIDS than he or she would have had if the mother had not smoked......It's really best to stop smoking before trying to conceive, as smoking just before or early in pregnancy increases the chances of birth defects, especially of the heart......... But the good news is that it's not too late to quit once a woman discovers she is pregnant. If she manages to quit before the 15 week point in her pregnancy, a woman can lower her risk of delivering a low birth weight baby to about the same as if she never smoked........ Any woman who is pregnant should try to stop smoking, with her doctor's help, as soon as possible........

Smoking itself is a bad habit, but if you can't give it up, you can at least cut back on some of your bad smoking habits... Do you smoke in bed for example? That's not only a bad habit but also a dangerous one, as many house fires start because someone fell asleep with a lit cigarette still between his fingers....
Reaching for a cigarette first thing in the morning is another habit which you should try to get out of....Try doing some deep breathing exercises instead..... Smoking in the kitchen, especially when you are cooking is also something which should be avoided, as ash can easily fall into the food........

Not paying attention to when and how often you smoke is another bad habit and one which can mean you are smoking a lot more than you think....So make some note of every cigarette you smoke for a week and notice when you smoke unconsciously, that is without noticing you're doing it....Moreover, once you are fully aware of your bad smoking habits, you can start to do something to change them and you should be able to cut down substantially in the process......... If you smoke when talking on the phone, keep your cigarettes and ashtray out of reach....... If you go out drinking with friends, make a conscious effort to smoke less - the pub is the place you are most likely to smoke too much........Try to drink plenty of water.,... This is one of step to avoid smoking.....
Smoking around babies or children is another bad habit and one which could have serious consequences for their health, as passive smoking has now been proved to cause the same illnesses as active smoking.......If you smoke in public places, then you need to be careful not to blow smoke in the faces of non-smokers around you as this is putting them at risk and is also extremely unpleasant as it can irritate the eyes and nose, as well as making their clothes smell....
This is some point of bad smoking habit, any point that i had left?? u can leave a comment or suggestion...

World No Tobacco Day 2010

Controlling the epidemic of tobacco among women is an important part of any comprehensive tobacco control strategy. World No Tobacco Day 2010 was designed to draw particular attention to the harmful effects of tobacco marketing towards women and girls. It also highlighted the need for the nearly 170 Parties to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control to ban all tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship in accordance with their constitutions or constitutional principles. Women comprise about 20% of the world’s more than one billion smokers. However, this figure is bound to increase. Male rates of smoking have peaked, while female rates are on the rise. Women are major target of opportunity for the tobacco industry, which needs to recruit new users to replace the nearly half of current users who will die prematurely from tobacco-related diseases. Especially troubling is the rising prevalence of tobacco use among girls. The new WHO report, Women and health: today’s evidence, tomorrow’s agenda, points to evidence that tobacco advertising increasingly targets girls. Data from 151 countries show that about 7% of adolescent girls smoke cigarettes as opposed to 12% of adolescent boys. In some countries, almost as many girls smoke as boys.

            World No Tobacco Day 2010 gave overdue recognition to the importance of controlling the epidemic of tobacco among women. As WHO Director-General Margaret Chan wrote in the aforementioned report, “protecting and promoting the health of women is crucial to health and development-not only for the citizens of today but also for those of future generations”. The WHO Framework Convention, which took effect in 2005, expresses alarm at “the increase in smoking and other forms of tobacco consumption by women and young girls worldwide”. It is therefore important that tobacco control policies recognise and take into account gender norms, differences and responses to tobacco in order to “reduce tobacco use and improve the health of men and women worldwide”. The WHO Framework Convention recognises “the need for gender-specific tobacco control strategies”, as well as for the “full participation of women at all levels of tobacco control policy making and implementation of tobacco control measures”.
            On World No Tobacco Day 2010, and throughout the following year, WHO will encourage governments to pay particular attention to protecting women from the tobacco companies’ attempts to lure them into lifetimes of nicotine dependence. By responding to WHO’s call, governments can reduce the toll of fatal and crippling heart attacks, stroke, cancers and respiratory diseases that have become increasingly prevalent among women. Tobacco use could kill one billion people during this century. Recognising the importance of reducing tobacco use among women, and acting upon that recognition, would save many lives. Although the World No Tobacco Day 2010 campaign focused on tobacco marketing for women, it took into account the need to protect boys and men from tobacco companies’ tactics.

Tobacco smoke is a mixture of gases and small particles made up of water, tar and nicotine..... The tar is a messy mixture of hundreds of toxic chemicals, many of which are known to cause cancer....for example, nitrosamines, benzpyrene.....Many of the gases in tobacco smoke are harmful.... These include carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen cyanide, ammonia, and other toxic irritants such as acrolein and formaldehyde..... Due to the high temperatures over 800°C or 1400°F, the burning end of a cigarette is like a miniature chemical factory.... Altogether more than 4,000 chemical compounds have been identified in tobacco smoke.....
The chemicals that cause cancer are mainly in the tar..... Tar, together with some of the irritant gases, may also be partly responsible for chronic bronchitics and empysema..... Nitrogen oxides are suspected, but the main agents responsible are not yet known..... Neither nicotine nor carbon monoxide causes cancer, but they probably work together as causes of the heart diseases associated with smoking.......
It is easy to understand why the main cancers caused by smoking are at sites having direct contact with the smoke, specifically the lungs, mouth, and our throat.,.... However, some cancer-producing chemicals are absorbed into the our blood and transported to other parts of the body. This is how smoking causes cancer of the bladder, kidney, pancreas, and uterus for women..........
The way in which smoking causes heart attacks, strokes and other cardiovascular diseases is quite complex..
1.After absorption through the lungs, carbon monoxide combines with hemoglobin in the red blood cells and reduces the amount of oxygen they can carry around the body....
2.Carbon monoxide and nicotine both appear to play a part in accelerating the deposition of cholesterol in the inner lining of arteries which over many years leads to arteriosclerosis, a kind of hardening and furring up of arteries which reduces blood flow....
3.Cigarette smoking also makes the blood clot more easily, making episodes of trombosis more likely....
4.Impairment of blood flow, and of oxygen-carrying capacity due to carbon monoxide, all reduce the supply of oxygen. This happens at the same time that the heart's need for oxygen is increased by the stimulant effect of nicotine on the rate and force of the heart's contractions.....
5.The lack of oxygen is damaging to the heart and increases the severity of a heart attack.....
6.Nicotine can cause further problems by upsetting the regular rhythm of the heart....Nicotine and carbon monoxide are also important factors in peripheral vascular disease, which can lead to gangrene of the feet..... Nicotine causes constriction, or narrowing, of the small blood vessels...... This, combined with carbon monoxide's oxygen-reducing effect, tips the balance in people with narrowed leg arteries......
Likewise, nicotine constriction of blood vessels in the placenta which it provides nourishment to an unborn baby, combined with the effects of carbon monoxide, reduces oxygen supply to the unborn babies of pregnant women who smoke......
In these various ways both nicotine and carbon monoxide are involved in the effects of smoking on coronary heart disease, other vascular diseases, and on the development of the unborn child...It is so dangerous for pregnant women whos smoke... Although stopping smoking may not reverse arteriosclerosis, a disease in which plaque builds up in the arteries, it will progress less quickly......
However, the other negative effects from smoking are reversed within 24 hours of stopping, when nicotine and carbon monoxide have cleared from the body.....


A smoking addiction refers to a person has formed an uncontrollable dependence on cigarettes to the point where stopping smoking would cause severe emotional, mental, or physical reactions and so on.... Everyone knows that smoking is harmful and addictive, but few people just realize that how it be affected people...Chances are that about one in three smokers who do not stop will eventually die because of their smoking. ....Some will die in their 40year old, others will die later. On average, they will die 10 to 15 years earlier than they would have died from other causes....
Most smokers want to quit and do it for many times but totally failed, but only one in three succeeds in stopping permanently before age 60. By this time, much harm may have been done to the body....The reason why so many people fail to stop is because they are too addicted. Being addicted does not mean that you cannot stop - only that it is likely to be difficult to quit smoking.... Anyone can succeed if he or she goes about it in the right way.....
How you stop especially, when you stop  is a very personal matter.,...You can stop but its hard to stop...but you have to try stop smoking in the right way... Only you know what you have to give up, and how the benefits of smoking can be weighed against the benefits of stopping.... Harassment and pressure from others who do not understand is often unhelpful..... You will only stop when you have made a good decision..... When you do make up your mind, however, you can succeed, regardless of how addicted you may be......
If you stop smoking before or during middle age for inctance, age 35 to 50 years old, you will avoid about 90 percent of the lung cancer risk.,,, If you are currently middle-aged, you are also more likely to succeed in quitting now than when you were younger,.... 


for your information now more than 10,000 Malaysians die from smoking-related illnesses every year. this statistic was general by Health Minister Datuk Chua Jui Meng. He said that 30% of those above the age of 30 suffer from up to 40 kinds of illnesses which include heart problems and 57 types of cancer. from the statistics we can know that every day about 50 teenagers below the age of 18 start smoking and most of them become hardcore smokers and according to a recent World Health Organisation report, more than 100,000 youths started smoking daily.

now, in Malaysia have  44 hospitals and 111 health centres provide this treatment for smoker.In 1999, about 1,000 smokers were able to kick the habit. the ministry had compounded 11,211 people for smoking in public places that year.from the number 1,366 were youths.

All forms of tobacco such as cigarettes, pipes, cigars, hookahs, and smokeless tobacco are hazardous.....It doesn't help to substitute products that seem like they're better for you than regular cigarettes, for instance e-cigarettes or filtered or low-tar cigarettes....The only thing that really helps a person to avoid the problems associated with smoking is staying smoke free....This isn't always easy, especially if everyone around you who are smoking and offering you the cigarettes... It may help to have your reasons for not smoking ready for times you may feel the pressure, such as "I just don't like it" or "I want to stay in shape for soccer" Examples. football, basketball, or other sport...The good news for people who don't smoke or who want to quit is that studies show that the number of teens who smoke has dropped dramatically... Today, about 20% of high school students smoke — which means 4 out of 5 don't....
If you do smoke and want to quit, you have lots of information and support available. Different approaches to quitting work for different people. For some, quitting cold turkey is best. Others find that a slower approach is the way to go. Some people find that it helps to go to a support group especially for teens. These are sometimes sponsored by local hospitals or organizations like the American Cancer Society. The Internet offers a number of good resources to help people quit smoking.
When quitting, it can be helpful to realize that the first few days are the hardest. So don't give up. Some people find they have a few relapses before they manage to quit for good.
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!
