There have been numerous campaigns against cigarette smoking
communicating that this vice causes death. But a threat to health doesnít seem
to be a good reason for quitting anymore. People somehow block themselves and
ignore all the information that is given to them. The purpose of this essay is
to discuss three effects of cigarette smoking, besides the broadly mentioned
possibility of developing cancer or dying, which are the smell of smoke, the
stained teeth, and the cost of doing it.
The first effect of cigarette smoking, and probably the one that
the non-smokers hate the most, is that it permeates everything around it.
Smokers usually have smelly hair, breath, clothes, and, if they smoke indoors, a
smelly room. The stench of cigarette smoke is very penetrating and hard to
remove. Even if the person quits smoking the odor remains for a long time.
The second effect of cigarette smoking is one that most people
donít even take into consideration. It stains the teeth yellow or sometimes even
brown. Since this effect is long term, most people are not aware of it when they
begin smoking. The truth is that a cigarette stain is very hard to eliminate
from the teeth, and it will probably end up costing a considerable amount of
money. Yellow teeth are disgusting because they give an unhygienic image and
make people look older.
The third effect of smoking is that it will eventually end up
affecting the smokerís personal economy. Depending on the country the prices of
cigarettes can differ. But even at an affordable price the regular consumption
of cigarettes will eventually take its economic toll.
These are only three out of many other effects that cigarette
smoking can have, but to any sensible person they are more than enough to
realize that smoking is bad. People canít possibly be proud of calling
themselves smokers. It is terrible for health as well as personal appearance. In
the end, those who live in poverty, stink of smoke, and have yellow teeth are
the people who are affected the most by this life threatening activity.
