So we still have doubters of the negative effect of smoking. You know that bad habits are difficult to get rid of. People are free to make excuses ater all they have right to gradually kill themselves but have they taken tme to calculate how much they waste in a month that could make them rich. smoking just thirty naira a day by the least smokers amounts to nine hundred naira per month. the heavy smoker spends ten times this, 9000 naira. many poor smokers bekongs here and remain ever poorer. as a person versatile in stocks, may i tell him that a consistent monthly saving of 5000 out of it for six months would give enough funds to open account with some stock broking firms and possibly multiply it ar least by three at the end of another six months and can get it to two million in the nexr one year with the right knowledge that van be learnt. contact me if interested.

Cancerous Human Lung

This dissection of human lung tissue shows light-colored cancerous tissue in the center of the photograph. At bottom center lies the heart. While normal lung tissue is light pink in color, the tissue surrounding the cancer is black and airless, the result of a tarlike residue left by cigarette smoke. Most lung cancer begins in the cells lining the main air passages, or bronchi. In their cancerous state, these cells lack the cilia that normally catch and eliminate foreign particles inhaled into the lung. Mucous ordinarily cleared by bronchial cilia becomes trapped, blocking air passages. Lung cancer accounts for the largest percentage of cancer deaths in the United States, and cigarette smoking is directly responsible for the majority of these cases.

Hi,
Response to the above.

1. Not neccessary true,b'cos u could end up having sexy lips.And some smokers use items that will protect direct contact with lips and also to prevent fingers from smelling and getting stained.

2. That is if you don't brush well and not paying attention to your teeth.

3. Yes it does but thank God for mouth freshners.

4. VERY CORRECT.Infact faster than you think b'cos of all these fake cigarettes in Town.

5. Some people smoke to loose weight.Though it is not the proper way to loose weight.

6.Not really true,except if the cigarette butt is not disposed properly.

7. Not every smoker is an alcohol addict.But drinking alcohol could trigger smoking.

8.Very True.You are an example that your child will follow.

9. Nope,It is 4 minutes.But all depends on how you smoke it.

10. Very true,b'cos second hand smoke is as dangerous as the smoke you inhale.Please smoke away from non-smokers.

Cheers
Kolawole.

Ok guys, most smokers realize that they are on the road to destruction.But they cant stop because its hard to kick the habit once you start.About 2 years ago, i lost a colleague to lung cancer.He was a really nice guy.He tried to stop in his later years and even began taking treatment but it was too late.I attended his funeral.It wasn't funny.

I know most smokers find it hard to kick the habit so i often recommend Defender ,Vitamin and mineral supplement.It has got strong anti oxidant properties that counter the damaging effects of smoking.

Hi H.R.HOTNESS,
All you are simply saying is that you LOVE SMOKING and you are not thinking of quitting.
Maybe you share with us what makes smoking tick in your life.

What if I told you that within a week from starting this one stop smoking program you could be smoke free forever? Its really not as hard as you may think. In this eBook you will learn how you can be smoke free forever!

you will be ten times more likely to die from some form of lung disease.
you will be ten times more likely to die from cancer of the larynx.
you will be six times more likely to die of heart disease.
