Irrespective of how you are consuming it, tobacco use is always harmful to your health. The consumption of tobacco does not only affect your mouth, throat and lungs but your entire body. Whether it’s a cigarette, cigar, pipe or a hookah- there is no safe way to consume tobacco. Even though the consumption rates have come down, India remains to be the second largest consumer of Tobacco.
One of the main ingredients present in Tobacco is called Nicotine. This is known as a mood-altering drug because as soon as it reaches your brain, it makes you more energetic but only for a while. Now once the effect wears off, it leaves you feeling tired and creates urge for more. This substance is extremely habit forming and that is exactly why people find it so hard to quit smoking.
Now that you know why Tobacco is so addictive, here are the effects that it can have on your bodies:
Central Nervous System:
Since Nicotine is so habit forming, once a person tries to quit- there are serious withdrawal symptoms like impairing one’s cognitive system.
When you’re inhaling smoke, you are letting in elements that are dangerous to your lungs and body. Continued use of such smoke can lead to various health problems. Along with infections, this can lead to long term illnesses and even cancer.
Smoking also leads to peripheral artery disease and can also lead to high blood pressure. It may even result in heart problems like stroke or even heart attacks.
Regular use of tobacco has been attributed to mouth, throat, larynx as well as oesophagus cancer. Even in cases where people only smoke and not inhale are at a high risk of cancer and other chronic diseases.
Other than the above-mentioned effects smoking has ill effects on your hair, skin, nails as well. It can even have adverse effects on your reproductive system. Not only this, passive smokers are prone to the same effects as the ones who are smoking.
