A cigarette, or cigaret, is a small cylinder of finely cut tobacco leaves rolled in thin paper for smoking. The cigarette is ignited at one end causing the cigarette to smolder and allowing smoke to be inhaled from the other end, which is held in or to the mouth; in some cases, a cigarette holder may be used, as well. Most modern manufactured cigarettes are filtered, and also include reconstituted tobacco and other additives.
A small explanation of a cigarette yet nothing said about the other part of the iceberg. For many years smoking was seen as a sign of prestige and luxury, and that’s all because the healthcare institutions were remaining silent.
The immune system is the body’s way of protecting itself from infection and disease. Smoking compromises the immune system, making smokers more likely to have respiratory infections.
Smoking also causes several autoimmune diseases, including Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis. It may also play a role in periodic flare-ups of signs and symptoms of autoimmune diseases. Smoking doubles your risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis.
Smoking has recently been linked to type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes. Smokers are 30% to 40% more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than nonsmokers. Additionally, the more cigarettes an individual smoke, the higher the risk for diabetes. Nevertheless, cigarettes are still counted as signs of prestige even today. My words can be proven stronger by a speech from a move Rocknrolla. If you look at the cigarettes, pack you will notice that one of your personalities is seduced by the illusions of grandeur – the gold packet of king size with a regal insignia, an attractive implication towards grandeur and wealth, the subtle suggestion that cigarettes are indeed your royal and loyal friends. A speech said by a pianist who was a heavy smoker. Are we really all that dumb? We all understand that smoking is horrible and will eventually cause pain to our beloved ones. Are we not brave enough to show that we are stronger than an addiction? I’m sure that we all are. So stab the buds of the cigarettes once and for all. We quit smoking!
