10 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Quit Smoking! by omonori1: 8:59pm On Aug 25, 2012
WHY QUIT SMOKING ***

1)Cigarettes contain more than 4000 chemical compounds and at least 400 toxic substances.
2) When you inhale, a cigarette burns at 700°C at the tip and around 60°C in the core. This heat breaks down the tobacco to produce various toxins.
3) A single cigarette can reduce the blood supply to your skin for overan hour.
4) Smoking raises blood pressure, which can cause hypertension ( high blood pressure ) – a risk factor for heart attacks and stroke.


5) Couples who smoke are more likely to have fertility problems than couples who are non-smokers.
6) For men in their 30s and 40s, smoking increases the risk of erectile dysfunction (ED) by about 50 per cent.
7) On average, each cigarette shortens a smoker's life by around 11 minutes.
cool Smoking causes an acid taste in the mouth and contributes to the development of ulcers .

"PLZZ DON'T DO THAT. START BREATHING STOP SMOKING"

How often do you find Parkinson desease in this part of the world?
Re: 10 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Quit Smoking! by omonori1: 9:24am On Aug 27, 2012
esearchers have new insight into the relationship between Parkinson's disease and smoking. Several studies have shown that smokers have a lower risk of developing Parkinson's disease. A new study published in the March 10, 2010, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology, shows that smoking for a greater number of years may reduce the risk of the disease, but smoking a larger number of cigarettes per day may not reduce the risk

There are alot of toxins in a stick of cigarette, but i wanna share just three of these poisons


1) NICOTINE: this is the substance that makes people get addicted to cigarettes, it elevates blood pressure by narrowing peripheral vessels, especially those of the hands and feet, thats why if u touch the hand of a smoker after a stick, it feels cold....

When these vessels are narrowed, the heart needs extra force to pump blood to the tissues, this increases blood pressure and may also lead to heart failure


2) AMMONIA: this chemical damages the so-called cilia, which look like hairs that filter dust, pollen and even bacteria we breathe, when these cilia are burned off, nothing is left to filter anything, so.........


3) TARS AND RESINS: now these are the carcinogens, they cause cancer.... Shikenah


so, do u still want to smoke?
Re: 10 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Quit Smoking! by Lagusta(m): 7:56pm On Mar 26, 2013
Let me also share this simple test with you......

Get a clean white handkerchief, ask a smoker to blow in a puff, but not inhaling deeply, tell him to blow the smoke out on the hankie, you'll see brown and red spots on the handkerchief, these are the tars and resins that cause cancer.......

Now get another handkerchief, tell the smoker to puff in again, this time inhaling deeply, ask him to blow onto the handkerchief, you won't see any spots on it, where have the spots gone to now.........
