Reasons Why People Smoke Even When They Know Cigarettes Are Poison
My husband smokes. I hate the smell. But he still smokes. I don't know why people smoke when it can make them smell bad and shorten their lives. And they all know that cigarettes are poison but that fact doesn’t stop them from continuing their bad habit.
My husband was previously diagnosed with angina. For those of you who don't know what angina is, it is something like a heart attack but not exactly a heart attack. However, if left untreated, it will and may lead to a heart attack. It’s like a prequel to a heart attack.
After an angiogram, the doctor found one clogged artery. You should know that all of us have four main arteries going to the heart. My husband only has three unclogged arteries left.
The doctor advised him to stop smoking but he is still smoking regardless. I don't know what to think. I ask myself why he still smokes even after what the doctor had said. Why do you smoke? This is my opinion of the reasons why people smoke.
1. Tired of living
Cigarettes are poison. This is what the doctor told me. And all of you should know too. Cigarettes are poison. So why take poison unless you want to die? So I think people smoke because they're tired of living. They want to DIE! Do you want to die? If you don't, then stop smoking. It's so easy. Stop feeding yourself poison!
2. Bad odor
Smelling smoke odor is not nice. People who smoke probably don't like to smell good. They like the bad odor which cigarettes leave in their mouth, their clothes, their hair and their fingers. Walking by a heavy smoker is like walking through a building on fire. Perhaps, they want to chase away others due to their bad odor.
3. Don't want children
It has been proven that smoking may lead to infertility in both men and women. Even if they have children, their children may have stunted growth. A report in the British Medical Journal stated that the fertility of both men and women who smoke are reduced. For men, smoking may lead to impotence. So I guess smokers must not like to have children. That is why they smoke.
I hope my husband would stop smoking. And for those of you who still smoke, stop smoking if you love your family and yourself. Stop feeding yourself poison!
