Tobacco use, and its effects
By : Hannah Erdmann
Why is it so bad for you?
Smoking also affects your heart. It can start to clog up your arteries in your heart, and can lead to heart attack and stroke. This is because of the tar that is in the cigarette, which sticks to your arteries. It can also cause Heart Disease. Your heart is one of the most important organs in your body, and keeps your body going, do you want to hurt that?
What reasons you should not do it
Do you like food? Of course you do! Well, when you smoke, it can affect your senses, mostly your sense of smell and taste. This will make some of the foods that you use to love, not taste so good. This will also make you start to lose your sense of smell. You will never be able to smell the grass, or the salt on the beach ever again!
Smoking also affects how you look. Smoking can make you look years older, and stain your teeth and fingers a yellowish color.
Why you should never even have one
Do you know anyone who drinks coffee? Well, that coffee is the same sort of drug as Nicotine. They are both addictive drugs. Just like when someone tries to stop drinking coffee, they have to ween themselves into having less and less. Someone who is trying to stop smoking usually will have to ween themselves off of it. Others are able to just quit, but most have to go to the doctor for help stopping their addiction. A lot of people who try to stop smoking do not succeed.
