    Statistics confirm that 90% of the people die from lung cancer every year. Smoking also affects the heart and blood vessels of people. It causes stroke and coronary heart diseases, which are among the leading causes of death these days. It is not only the chain smokers who get affected by smoking but also, people who smoke less than 5 cigarettes a day may get early signs of cardiovascular diseases. It destroys the blood vessels and has the capability to either thicken them or make them narrow which makes the heart beat faster. It causes the blood pressure of the person to rise beyond a certain limit. If a person is already suffering from Asthma, tobacco from the cigarettes can trigger an attack or make an attack worse.

    Cigarette smoking also causes environmental pollution by releasing toxic pollutants into the atmosphere. The cigarette butts also litter the environment and the toxic chemicals go deep into the soil and waterways, causing soil and water pollution respectively. It comes out that not only the smoke but the cigarette butts are also harmful to the environment. Sometimes unknowingly those cigarette butts are even consumed by the animals and birds and are deeply devastated. It is clearly written on the pack of cigarettes that “Smoking kills” and one should not consume it. People should understand the depth of the problems that smoking causes in living beings.
