Smoking is one of the worst habits kids or adults can indulge in to harm their bodies. According to a study, nearly 4,400 kids between the ages 12 and 17 start smoking daily at such a nubile age. Why? There can be many reasons attributed to this rather than just one simple answer. It may well be curiosity, doing something dangerous, inspired by movies, peer pressure that can lead a kid to smoking arena. Some kids find it challenging and sort of fun to smoke just because grown-ups don't want them to do so. On the contrary, few find it cool to act like an adult who they see smoking around them.

 

What Are Smoking and Smokeless Tobacco?

Tobacco is a plant that can be smoked in cigarettes, pipes, or cigars. It's the same plant that's in smokeless tobacco, known as dip, chew, snuff, spit, or chewing tobacco. Smokeless tobacco is not lit and breathed in like tobacco in cigarettes, pipes, and cigars.

Smokeless tobacco is put between the lip and gum and sucked on inside the mouth. Tobacco contains nicotine (a drug found naturally in tobacco), a chemical that causes a tingly or good feeling - but that feeling only lasts for a little while. Nicotine is highly addictive - as addictive as heroin and cocaine. There are 43 known cancer-causing chemicals in tobacco smoke. Nicotine itself isn't thought to be carcinogenic; it's the reason why smokers continue the habit.


Effect of Smoking

Male body

  • Lower sperm count
  • Higher percentage of deformed sperm
  • Reduced sperm mobility
  • Lower sex drive
  • Reduced levels of male sex hormones
  • Impotence, caused by reduced blood flow to the penis
  • Increased risk of reproductive system cancers, including penile cancer.

 

Female body

  • Reduced fertility.
  • Lower sex drive.
  • Reduced levels of female sex hormones.
  • Menstrual cycle irregularities or absence of menstruation.
  • Menopause reached one or two years earlier.
  • Increased risk of reproductive system cancers, including cancers of the cervix, vulva and breast.
  • Greatly increased risk of stroke and heart attack if the smoker is aged over 35 years and taking the oral contraceptive pill.

 

Unborn child

  • Increased risk of miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth.
  • Low birth weight.
  • Increased risk of cleft palate and cleft lip.
  • Greater risk of developmental problems, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
  • Paternal smoking can also harm the foetus if the non-smoking mother is exposed to passive smoking.
  • If the mother continues to smoke during her baby's first year of life, the child has an increased risk of ear infections, respiratory illnesses such as asthma, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and childhood cancers such as acute lymphocytic leukaemia

 

A number of past studies have pointed to the impotence risk associated with smoking. Though the reasons aren't fully clear, it's thought that the effects of smoking on the blood vessels may impair blood flow to the penis, leading to problems with maintaining an erection. Since erections are caused by increased blood flow to the penis, that can spell trouble.

Many male smokers can't express their burning desires. The report estimated around 120,000 men aged 30-50 were impotent because of smoking. Patients who had hypertension, which is also known as high blood pressure, means that the heart is working too hard to push blood through the body's circulatory system, possibly because arteries are clogged. A study of men between the ages of 48 and 78 revealed that about half of the smokers were impotent.

Impotency is largely a problem for older men; younger men who smoke can experience weaker erections because of constricted blood vessels. New study shows that smoking may raise the risk of impotence in younger men too.

Quit Smoking. No matter what your age is or how long you've smoked, quitting will help you live longer. People who stop smoking before age 35 avoid 90% of the health risks attributable to tobacco. Even those who quit later in life can significantly reduce their risk of dying at a younger age. It's the most important thing you can do to improve your health.
