Smokers.


                  

We are gonna touch a little bit, or maybe a little bit more than a little bit on SMOKERS.
Not the smoker character in manga or anyone with the name smoker.
Smoking is the inhalation of the smoke of burning tobacco encased in cigarettes, pipes, and cigars.

Before i start with my very own opinion, i would like to let you all know the global statistics on smoking.
This is what i get when i google to get the actual statistics. We don't know how true it is, but i am sure it can be trusted.



  • About a third of the male adult global population smokes.
  • Smoking related-diseases kill one in 10 adults globally, or cause four million deaths. By 2030, if current trends continue, smoking will kill one in six people.
  • Every eight seconds, someone dies from tobacco use.
  • Smoking is on the rise in the developing world but falling in developed nations. 
  • About 15 billion cigarettes are sold daily - or 10 million every minute.
  • About 12 times more British people have died from smoking than from World War II.
  • Cigarettes cause more than one in five American deaths.
  • Among WHO Regions, the Western Pacific Region - which covers East Asia and the Pacific - has the highest smoking rate, with nearly two-thirds of men smoking.
  • About one in three cigarettes are consumed in the Western Pacific Region.


Youth

  • Among young teens (aged 13 to 15), about one in five smokes worldwide.
  • Between 80,000 and 100,000 children worldwide start smoking every day - roughly half of whom live in Asia.
  • Evidence shows that around 50% of those who start smoking in adolescent years go on to smoke for 15 to 20 years.
  • Peer-reviewed studies show teenagers are heavily influenced by tobacco advertising.
  • About a quarter of youth alive in the Western Pacific Region will die from smoking.



Let's move on with my ''talk''. Some people find that smoking is cool and some of them do it to attract girls! How stupid is that? Please, we girls don't like guys who smoke, UNLESS she smokes as well. In  our world today, girls smoke just like other guys. I remember walking to the back of a mall and seeing most of the women workers smoke. 

I am not a person who can stand smoke much. Unless it is not smelly ( which smoke does not stink? ). I have family members who smoke as well. One of them smoke few days once. Another one of them smoke almost all the time. Whenever you see him, he will most probably be smoking in front of you. 

Look, i am not saying that you can't smoke or whatever. If you want to die earlier, go ahead. But please have some common sense. Some people actually SMOKE IN RESTAURANTS WHICH CLEARLY HAS THE SIGN SAYING ' NO SMOKING'. Which part of NO SMOKING do you not understand? People are eating and you are smoking. Yes, you can say ' if you don't like it, get out.'.   BUT HELLO, Don't forget it is a restaurant, even if you are a boss there, you have no rights to say that to your customers! Most of the people are eating and you are the only one smoking and you expect all of them to leave just to let you smoke? Okay, this never happen to me before but i am just thinking of the possibilities of the answer the might give me. 

There are also some brainless smokers who i have seen that actually smokes IN FRONT OF A NEWBORN BABY. How stupid is that? Gtfo ! Grow some brains dude! 

Ardi smokes 40 cigarettes a day

Do you remember this little guy (Ardi Rizal) who started smoking since he was two ? And guess how many cigarettes did he light up a day? 40 CIGARETTES. Do you think that it is cool? Yes, some people call him cute and shit. HE IS CUTE. I can never deny that. But he will most probably has a shorter life compared to other children if he continues smoking. However, im glad that he has finally stopped smoking after going to a rehab! It was a source from some news website! 

This is the few paragraphs i get from the news, 



''Scans show that Aldi’s heart now has a thick lining, and he is often vacant and listless, however he is recovering. His psychologist said, 'If it can be done well, I am optimistic that Ardi will stop smoking.'

His mother, Diana has also been given therapy, training her to be a proper parent. She hopes that now he has quit, his health will improve, “I hope he does not have any diseases, because he has now stopped smoking,”''

sigh, can you imagine how heartbroken the mother was? So many teenagers are smoking now. Are you sure you want your parents to be worried as well ? They are hoping that you will grow up and be a healthy teen. But if you smoke, you definitely has already disappoint them. 




This is the joke everyone is talking about. How sure are you that a laughing smoker won't die ? Yes, it is a joke and laugh all you want people! Laugh all you want! But do you know that some stupid teens will actually take this seriously and continues to smoke ? Tobacco advertisement is one of the reasons that influence teens to smoke. A joke like that will also be taken seriously. Dude, think bout it. It's your life, your choice. If you want to continue smoking, kindly stay away from public spaces and go to a place where is specifically build for smokers. 


Last but not least, i am not saying that smokers should die. I have friends who smoke and i hope that they will be healthy. But life is yours, so the decision is in your hand. Either to have white teeth or yellow teeth, you choose.
