The Smoker's Body


It is too ironic how millions with a pipe clenched in between their lips can be so indifferent to something I personally think is a dead match between their already susceptible body and an obvious killer. There's no denying that while they indulge themselves in doing it, they are making a major cutthroat of whatever are sustaining their body.

So why smoke? Every smoker must ask himself this question and provide an answer. Answers can go from peer pressure, self-gratification, the weather, to coping mechanism, especially to those battling psychological issues. It might seem to them the absolute and only answer, but no more when its effects are already presenting themselves right in front of their face, and then the body goes unforgiving.

This is an attempt to distract you, dear smoker, by telling you a friendly advice that smoking doesn't do you any good.

  4. Yikes....that is not a very pretty sight at all.

    I never could understand why people so what they do to their bodies.

    They treat them worse than crawling insects.

    I have always believed our bodies are gifts and that we should respect and nurture them as such.

    Thank you for your reality check pf a post.

    have a good day!

  20. I tried cigarette smoking may times. Good thing is that when I smoke my body shows bad reaction to it like experiencing non stop coughing for a period of time and I feel like if I continued to smoke It would cause me to have asthma. Do you wonder what are the chemicals being inhaled during smoking check the link for information.
