There is no doubt that cigarette is one of the most abused substances in our time. And that notwithstanding both users and the medics are very much aware of the devastation that comes with cigarette smoking. The irony in this case is that authorities are spending billions of money in trying to bring this disturbing behavior to manageable levels and at the same time they are also dissing out licenses for people to do business in tobacco products businesses. This is the greatest hypocrisy I have ever seen or heard of and that is why we want to engage the experts from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center to help us understand the hypocrisy in handling cigarette prevention. Dear friend the truth of the matter is that cigarette smoking kills many people globally. America is one of the biggest victims when it comes to cigarettes addiction today and if we are still going to be kind with cigarette for whatever reason be it for revenue reasons or fear of loss of employment opportunities, then I can confirm to us that we will not be sincere with our efforts. Am saying this because you do not worn a child about the dangers of any poison then you serve him or her with the same poison.
In our previous article I did ask “what is wrong in listing cigarette as one of the illegal substance like cocaine, heroin and the likes.” I hope that someday this question will be responded to boldly and without any fear but for now the rate of hypocrisy in handling the matter will still continue.
It is true that most people are well informed of the dangers of smoking including the serious effects it will has on their health by increase once risk of contracting serious health complications like cancer and also cause problems during pregnancy and make you more likely to suffer from a stroke or heart attack. And so, when making emphasis on the hypocrisy in handling cigarette smoking we understand the real consequences of burying our heads in the sand. The impact of cigarette smoking will not only be visible on the basis of the life threatening health conditions, but also from very simple elements that you are likely to ignore. Like for instance, the byproducts found in tobacco products will deprive the skin of oxygen and vital nutrients. This deprivation can lead to a pale and uneven skin tone. It therefore means that if you begin smoking at a tender age, changes in your skin can begin to be seen sooner than you can imagine. For instance when you take a puff of cigarette stick, in essence you’re causing permanent damage to your skin. This habit can cause early wrinkles, and it accelerates the overall aging of your skin. After only 10 years of smoking, it’s already possible to see the effects in the faces of young adults. Now from that explanation you can see that such people will dig deep into their finances to correct the facial and harm caused by the smoke while at the same time bracing themselves for the major consequences of cigarette smoking like the skin cancer and other cancerous effects that are associated with this habit. We are being hypocritical in dealing with this substance usage because we can narrate vividly the dangers, we can make financial cost estimations, loss of manpower during working hours while smoking and the list is endless yet we have refused to be bold enough to classify this substance as an illegality in our laws of the land.
In connection to the above point, there is no doubt that smoking causes more harm than good to the skin, and in fact smoking is one of the major reasons why we have wrinkled skin, this normally happen by reduction in size of the blood vessels in the outer layers of your skin. The consequence of this reduction is that there will be inadequate flow of blood to the skin thereby reducing the quantity of oxygen supplied to the skin and not forgetting the reduction in supply of the essential nutrients to the largest organ of the body.
Experts are a worried lot because they know that smoking damages important connective fibers like collagen and elastin, causing permanent wrinkles. It is really beat the logic seeing one spending heavily on cosmetics products to improve the looks on their skin while at the same time puffing up to three packets of cigarette. Do you want to justify that as being ignorant? I disagree and to me it is pure hypocrisy. I know that we can do better than this irrespective of the addictive nature of this substance. The slogan “yes we can” is applicable hear and the sooner we face the facts right the better for all of us. Doctor Dalal Akoury says that if nothing is done in good time, then we are likely to see the significance of the damage in our skin in just less than ten years. It therefore means that if you started smoking at the age of ten then inside your teen years you will begin seeing the formation of wrinkles in your body, on the face, neck and even on your lips. And remember that if this trend continue for another 10 years smoking at least 10 sticks of cigarettes or more daily, you’re more likely to develop deeply wrinkled, leathery skin and a yellowish complexion.
It is important to know that it does not take you to do big things for the damage to be observed, even the little things you do when you puff can contribute to skin damage. For instance when you purse your lips to inhale or squint to keep smoke out of your eyes, you are adding even more stress to your skin. These actions create crow’s feet around your eyes and deep lines on the sides of your mouth. And remember that the damage doesn’t stop at your face. According to AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, various studies have established that smokers will often show signs of accelerated aging below the neck and even on their inner arms.
