Introduction: Smoking is a harmful behavior with social function, not only will make people addicted, cause dependence, also harmful to health, and cause cancer. The most terrible thing is that "second-hand smoke" caused by smoking is harmful to the health of others.
Ancient and modern gleanings: It was recorded in ancient book Dan Mo Lu(light ink record) that the emperor hated smoking very much, and thought that smoke was a thing exhausting Qi. Chen Cong, recorded in his works Yan Cao Pu(tobacco spectrum) that: "Wang Youtang did not smoke his whole life. People asked him why, and he said to him, 'if there is smoke and the orchid flower will have no smells, it is the smoking take away its fragrance. The urine and defecation are most smelly, smoking and the defecation and urine are not smelly, so the smoking is smelly more than defecation and urine. How can I hide that stinkweed in clean bowels? 'those who smoking, and those who have dinner with friends, and those who are smoking and spit out clouds, not only sneeze but also do bad things, the residue ashes often burn things before the ashes are exhausted."This fully explained the ancients' understanding that smoking is a bad habit.
Why you should Not smoking anymore.
At present, 3 million people die from smoking every year in the world, and this number will reach 10 million by the year 2025. Almost 90% of lung cancer patients and 1/3 of all cancers are caused by smoking. 60% of men's bladder cancer, 75% of chronic bronchitis and 25% of heart disease are caused by smoking. At the same time, even people who don't smoke will be "dragged down." In China there are 540 million people suffer from passive smoking, including 180 million children under the age of 15. Every year, more than 100,000 people die from passive smoking, and the awareness rate of the harm of passive smoking is only 35%. Because an hour in a secondhand smoke room is like smoking a cigarette.
If you don't smoke and your family smokes, remind them to smoke less or not, and even if they do, let them go to the balcony or ventilated toilet. Remind them that when getting up in the morning, after dinner when drinking coffee, drinking, should not smoke, otherwise it will react with harmful substances in the smoke, make it cause more damage to the body. If you're willing to quit, first ditch your cigarette lighter and avoid regular smoking places. Drink 6-8 glasses of water between meals to get rid of the extra nicotine, go and take a bath when you want to smoke again, or chewing a piece of gum with fresh smells. Avoid stimulating foods, drink plenty of fresh fruit and vegetable juices, eat more grains, and walk for half an hour a day with belly breathing. B vitamins can also be taken to calm nerves and remove nicotine. When dining out, you can choose "non-smoking area." Smokers should also voluntarily go to the exclusive smoking room or smoking area before smoking. Don't smoke stale moldy tobacco when you smoke, because it doubles the risk of cancer.
What are the advantages of not smoking.
✵1. Protect intestines and stomach: "a cigar after the meal, happy be like immortal" this sentence should be changed to that "a cigar after the meal, early dead many years." Because smoking after meals is more toxic than smoking 8 cigarettes in other hours, it will also cause bile to enter the stomach, resulting in bile gastritis, abdominal pain, and other symptoms, and might be complicated with duodenitis.
✵2. Medicine potency inhibition: smoking can enhance the activity of liver enzymes, thus speeding up the decomposition process of medicine, medicines are difficult to actively enter the blood. For those who smoked within half an hour of taking the medicine, the active component of the medicine in the blood was only 1.2% to 1.8%. That compares with 21 to 24 percent for non-smokers.
✵3. Prevent coronary heart disease: the ammonia concentration in the toilet is very high, and the oxygen content is seriously insufficient. Because tobacco burns poorly at low oxygen levels, it produces sulfur dioxide and carbon monoxide. This will have more harmful substances inhaled, very badly affect the cardiovascular system, but also make bronchitis patients acute onset, induced coronary heart disease patients with angina.
✵4. Cancer prevention: most toxic substances in a person's body can be removed under normal health conditions. But tobacco contains many carcinogens, as well as fibro toxic substances that reduce the body's ability to expel foreign substances. All of these toxins attach to the tiny particles of cigarette smoke, deposit in the alveoli and reinforce each other, greatly enhancing the carcinogenic effect. At the same time, alcohol and smoke combined generate much greater harm to the human body than smoking or drinking alone, prone to complications of esophageal cancer, oral cancer, nasopharyngeal cancer, throat cancer and so on.
✵5. Prevent shock: many people smoke in small spaces, which can easily lead to a large increase of tar toxins in the unit space. People go into shock from time to time.
✵6. Protective immunity: the radioactive elements in the smoke produced by smoking can weaken the immunity of the body. Carbon monoxide from smoking, when combined with asbestos, greatly increases the incidence and mortality of lung cancer. Besides, the incidence of silicosis and respiratory diseases was significantly higher in smokers exposed to dust than in nonsmokers.
✵ Tips: Gargling with minty mouthwash after meals and wearing clean, fresh, smokeless clothes will help you maintain your results of quit smoking.
