Dangers of nicotine addiction


The dangers of smoking are undeniable. Anybody who has taken a science or health class in school is aware of the negative impact secondhand smoking has on a person’s health. There are millions of people in the world that smoke cigarettes without considering the side-effects of the smoke they constantly let out on the people who live around them, such as their friends and family. The biggest damage that comes from second-hand smoke is caused by tobacco.

Traditional cigarettes are full of tobacco which is the dangerous element in those cigarettes. Tobacco smoke contains several harmful chemicals that are harmful for the human body. These chemicals include cadmium, formaldehyde, ammonia, methanol, polonium, carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, benzene and arsenic. All of these chemicals have known fatalistic properties. Apart from these chemicals there are also forty other proven carcinogenic chemicals that are present in these cigarettes that cause cancer which results in millions of deaths each year, even for people who do not directly smoke.

Tobacco cigarettes are harmful for you and people around you. If you smoke traditional cigarettes regularly then you should look for different ways to deal with your smoking addiction to avoid causing damage to the health of people around you. A good alternative is to consider electronic cigarettes which are smokeless.

Millions of chain-smokers have switched to electronic cigarettes which allow smokers to get their nicotine fix without resorting to burning tobacco and inhaling tar. This has helped reduce casualties of secondhand smoking and is a better way to safeguard your health and the health of people who are around you every day.

There is no fire or burning involved in e-cigarettes as they are battery operated. Hence there is no smoke, smell or ash. Since the smoke that comes from the e cigarettes is basically vapor, it is odorless and presents no dangerous secondhand smoke. This way you can smoke these cigarettes anywhere you want without receiving complaints about health risks and without irritating other people.
