Smoking is the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death. It is a prime factor in heart disease, stroke, and chronic lungs disease. The risk of dying from cigarette smoking also increase yearly. The Philippines was the 15th largest consumer of Tobacco in the world last 2002 and currently has one of the highest smoking rat in Asia. As of 2015, about 5.5 trillion cigarettes were produced globally, and were smoked by over 1.1 billion people or greater than one seventh of the world population. According to the world health organization, smoking related-disease kills one over ten adult globally or cause 4 million deaths.

Nowadays the number of death caused by tobacco keeps on getting higher. A horrific tragedy that goes by day and night, stealing our friends and family members, stealing life every 8second s worldwide. Heart disease, respiratory disease and various variety of cancer are the common bad effect of smoking. Even though most of the smokers knows the danger on using it, they still continue on smoking. But what about those people who don’t smoke but still affected by the bad effects of smoking? they are called second hand smokers. Second hand smoke or the smoke that’s absorb by the people who’s not even take cigarette is much harmful to our health: There are 150 000-300 000 cases of death caused by pneumonia and bronchitis every year. Tobacco tears our family apart and break our heart.

What’s in a cigarette?: According to research there are approximately 600 ingredients in cigarette. When burned, they create 7000 chemicals. At least 69 of these chemicals like benzene, acetaldehyde, arsenic, benzo (a) pyrene, ethylene oxide, and 113-butadiene are known to cause a cancer and many are poisonous. These chemicals damage our DNA that cause cancer.

Our body are designed to deal a bit damage but it’s hard for our body to cope on the harmful chemicals in cigarette. Tobacco smoking takes a decade before the users feels it’s effect. Many of the smokers feels sorry when they already felt the effects of their bad habits. Some of them stops smoking to prevent the bad effects, but most of them didn’t. So we recommend you who’s reading this to stop smoking before it’s too late. We know that you’ll just ignore our advocacy but just think about it. We know that it is hard to quit smoking but think about yourself, or just about the person that cares for you or the person that you love, because the one who’ll be affected the most of your bad habit is not you, it’s the person that you love and the person that care for you, the person who loves you.

  1. I’m one of those people who didn’t smoke but i have some friends who are smoking cigarettes. Sometimes, i told them if they could stop smoking but they keep on telling me ” Bisyo ko na ito eh hinahanap hanap na ng katawan ko” but i think it is only in their minds. I learned from them that it is true that prevention is better than cure because in smoking, if you take them as your habit you will have a hard time to cure it when its effects strike you. For me, a person can live without smoking it only takes a lot of discipline especially for teenagers to avoid smoking and also not smoking cigarette proves that a person can live simply and happy. Even some adults smoke cigarettes for stress relieving but i think that exercise and healthy lifestyle is much better than this bad habit and in my opinion it is only their excuses but the truth is they are being addictive to smoking. Lastly, I can say that if you want to be healthy don’t smoke, if you love your family don’t smoke and if you love God don’t smoke

  2. We all know that smoking is one of the main vices of a Filipino. Some smokes to feel better, some finds happiness through cigarrettes and some considers smoking as an everyday habbit. I cannot blame people who smoke because it’s their choice but I cannot also tolerate people who smoke in public. I find it inappropriate and uncomfortable especially to those who don’t smoke,like me. Most of the filipino people died from the lung cancer and one of the causes of it was the cigarrettes. I support the advocacy because I want people to be aware of what cigarrettes can do to ruin their lives. You should not just think of yourself, you should also think for the people that care and love you. Smoking cigarrette not just ruin the lives of the people who directly smoking but also the life of the people that experiencing the second hand smoke.

  7. Smoking is a risk to every ones health. I do support this advocacy for the role of people in this world is to make purpose and not to harm your ownself. Is’nt it that we have have life to live. Every bad habbit can harm someone from anonymous person to someone you value most, Yes that can happen. Remember that “It’s Not Too Late”, every person has another chance to change his/her path in life.God is forgivable, whatever you’ve done wrong in life as long as you sincerely repent it and you can live a new life with a great purpose. Every single persons body is holy, for it is the temple of God (I Corinthians 3:16-17).

  9. One of the “Bisyo” of us Filipinos is smoking so I conduct a survey, what do you feel while smoking? some replied me I felt relax and really relieve my stress, some said It gives pleasure and boost my confident. And when I asked when is the best time to smoke? people got different answers some prefer to smoke after eating, some said while drinking cocktails, some said when stress and tired and some replied while defecating. I made this simple question to see how people being attached in smoking and why some can’t get out with this “Bisyo” so the problem is people can’t resist to use cigarette because of the satisfaction that they receive from “Yosi” or the addiction. I ain’t against from people who smoke in fact I have a lots of friends who smoke but always think if you still on a right place to do your “Bisyo”. As I thought that the second Hand Smoker are the most affected with the smoke of cigarettes unless I’ve a filter in my nose :D. I am really worried for everyone or for my family to the threat given by the “Cigarette” yah this is a battle between health-life versus satisfaction from “yosi” but do please have a care for your loved ones. I wish you feel the worry of the people who loves you so you’ll be awake from the reality that cigarette smoking is dangerous to your health.

    As I see Rizal will support this advocacy he said “It is a useless life that is not consecrated to a great ideal. It is like a stone wasted on the field without becoming a part of any edifice. So I invoke everyone to please do what is a just and what is the right.

  10. I have no personal issue about people who smoke but I really hate it when someone is smoking. Specially when that person is near me. Of course, I know the consequences of being a second-hand smoker. Although none at our home is smoking, I have a tito and friends who smoke. When I was a younger I asked my Tito if he can stop smoking, he told me that he tried but it was just a futile attempt. He can reduce it but he cant easily stop it. Growing up, I learned (from my friends) that it is impossible to suddenly stop smoking because smoking is considered as addiction. People smoke because they are bored, it looks cool, some says that it is stress reliever and some says that they smoke after eating because they feel like smoking helps them to digest what they ate. No matter what reason they have, I still support this No Smoking advocacy because I don’t think that smoking can cause you any good. People should be aware that smoking is not good for the health and is one of the many reasons why people acquire sickness like Lung Cancer and others. Also, aside from thinking of their selves, smokers should also think about the people around them. Would they like it if their family and friends are subject to second hand smoking? And they also shouldn’t smoke in public area. I will support this advocacy by supporting and promoting the “No-Smoking Policy”. It is also a great idea to rise the tax on smoking and other vices.

  11. I’m not a smoker and believe smoking is not a healthy act to engage in. Why support smoking in your newsletter about insurance companies. What has this to do with spreading the Gospel of Christ anyway? Smoking is like any other desire created by marketing. Some people engage and others do not. God gave us the urge to eat and drink to sustain us, but I know of no one born with the urge to smoke. Base on my own experienced in my High school year I try to smoke but when I decided to stop smoking it feels like hard to breathe.

  12. There are no positive effects that smoking can give. i have been with smokers since i was born because both of my parents are smokers, i have seen the effects on the health of my parents and my siblings through out the years and it is not a joke. i also admit that i learned to smoke just out of curiosity on why my parents are doing it. but i immediately quit smoking because i realized that it will not give me anything good. i support this advocacy because i believe that even non-smokers maybe affected because of second hand smoke. for the smokers i know that it is hard to stop smoking suddenly so i think but if they are willing to help themselves, in time they will be able to do so. for now it will be the best if our city will give them smoking areas to not affect the majority of the people.

  13. Smoke is not healthy at all i don’t why some people out there like to smoke there’s alot of side effects that they can obtained, Why people still making yosi if it’s bad to our health? why people still taking yosi if they already know the side effects in health? they can’t resist it because they already addict on smoking, even there’s a warning picture in the side of the yosi box and they ignore it, So the only way to stop this is to stop making more cigattes, i don’t any have experience about this.

  14. Cigarette smoking also causes or increases the risk of getting other lung diseases and conditions. Smoking causes bronchitis and emphysema. When a smoker has bronchitis, his/her bronchial tubes become inflamed or irritated. They produce too much mucus. This mucus blocks the tubes, and the smoker coughs a lot.

  15. Para sakin ang sigarilyo ang sumisira sa buhay nating mga tao pinaiikli nya ang buhay nating mga tao pero sa pananaw ng iba ang yosi ay isang libangan o karamay kapag may problema ang isang tao o naiinip sa buhay para sakin marami panaman bagay para malibang ang isang tao hindi lang sa yosi tingin din sa iba yung hindi makakasanhi ng sakit sa tao

  16. The fight of the two caped superheroes against the antismoking mascot of the Department of Health (DOH) took place in Mandaluyong City on Friday, staged by government officials and health advocates to “remind the public about the need to fight tobacco use.”

    Health officials and advocates presented the make-believe tableau at the Secret Recipe restaurant at SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City to celebrate World No Tobacco Day declared by the World Health Organization (WHO) to draw attention to the widespread use of tobacco and its ill effects.

    I’m not here to lecture you, but to tell you stories. In my freshman speech class in college, I went up to the podium and lit a cigarette. I took a long drag and blew smoke into a tissue to demonstrate what goes into a smoker’s lungs with each puff. The tissue was smeared with a yellow-brown tint I showed the class as I went on, even including a love poem to my trusted yosi in my presentation. I gave an anti-smoking speech as a smoker who was in the first year of a habit that would last me another ten, smug enough to tell the class that I knew it was bad but I would just hack it.

  17. For every study that came out proving that smoking was killing people, nicotine peddlers trolled up another shill in a white lab coat who’d be willing to concoct fictitious controversy, claim the evidence was inconclusive or point to old-timers who had smoked all of their lives and were fit as a fiddle. The present strategy is to frame smoking as a matter of personal freedom to become addicted to an expensive, poisonous product that wouldn’t pass safety standards if it were invented today and would get its makers sued into bankruptcy if it did.

  18. Smoking is hard to resist I know, I am surrounded with people who smoke, I have never passed a day without seeing a person smoking in my entire life, even my friends smoke. But why do they keep doing it? Why do they keep smoking? As a person who never tried smoking before, I cannot understand their addiction. My friends grandfather died because of smoking, he smokes at least 2 packs of cigarette a day, he went coughing like crazy, his wife told him to stop, but he secretly asks my friend to buy him at least 5-10 pieces of cigarettes daily, my friend would buy it for him because he’s really hard headed and has some anger issues. He even tried e-cigarette but he just couldn’t resist the original cigarette. Until one day, they consulted a doctor, the doctors found a lump inside his lungs and one side of his lungs is completely gone, completely burned out. He died on January 4, 2015. His sons are also addicted to smoking but now, because his other son has a baby of his own, he is trying his best not to smoke and use vape. That’s the thing I can’t understand, bakit masarap ang bawal? They know that cigarette is dangerous to your health but why do they keep selling it? To earn money? Would that money be enough for the millions of lives we lost because of cigarette? I’ve heard a stick of cigarette can minimize your life for 10 minutes, just imagine the time we may have with the love ones we lost because of smoking, they can still be alive today…

    All smokers caught smoking in public will pay 10,000 pesos or go to prison.
    Sellers of cigarettes (nag lalako) will pay 3,000 pesos or go to prison.

    The only place where you can smoke is inside your house.

  37. Smoking is the one of the issue here in the Philippines. Filipinos do smoke because to feel better and for a waste of time. They know that some people who did not smoke may affect because innocent people will breathe the smoke. But I can’t stop them because it is their habit. I hope there is a law that will lessen the people who smoke or there is private place for smoking.

  41. I support this advocacy beacause it will raise an awareness on the bad effects of smoking to the health of someone who will use cigarette. I still wonder why there are a lot of people who still smoke, like , why they are try to use cigarette when they know that they will be addicted to it ? we all know that smoking doesn’t give anything good but still there are a huge amount of user . The Government put a higher tax on companies that sell cigarettes that why cigarette are now very expensive, what if you are just a typical filipino who are earning an exact amount everyday ? smoking will ruin your life thats why we should avoid using it . Thanks to this advocacy !

  42. I support this advocacy because it will reduce the amount of smokers and pollution here in our country. Using cigarette is not dangerous to our health and i think our government should put higher tax on cigarettes so that the buyers will think trwice to buy cigarette.

  43. I was wondering since I know some who quits smoking but started with this thing called VAPE. Do you guys think that this is much less in terms of its effects to a persons body? Because some are claiming that it is much better than smoking actual cigarettes.

  49. A lot of diseases are being caused by smoking, especially by the secondhand smoke. A lot of people don’t want to have these diseases but can’t prevent when people around are so insensitive and apathetic, smoking and making people inhale all the smoke they blew. By implementing the R.A 101315 – “Single smoking”, one is not allowed to smoke even in private places when there is someone not smoking around him. Disobeying this law will be fined with P5000.00 after first warning.

  50. Just like any other vices, smoking has never been beneficial to those people who indulge themselves into it. Smoking can affect the health of the cigarette-users in a negative way. It was like these people want to get themselves respiratory diseases. Sadly, those people, including me, who never want to get involved are still affected by it. From what I know, the negative effect of smoking is much worse for second hand smokers than the ones who were really smoking. Being against smoking, I would like to amend the existing law about cigarette smoking and tobacco use. Smoking in public places is prohibited by the law but, for me, it doesn’t do much of a help. Implementation of the amended law strictly limits cigarette and tobacco users to smoke in only a few designated areas. These areas designed for smoking will be present near public places. Selling cigarettes to minors strictly won’t be tolerated as we won’t let them be involved to this certain kind of a vice. Implementation of this newly-amended law promotes health care, protection and consciousness, and limits the bad effects only to the users (they’d been warned for who knows how many times) and ensure that those who aren’t involved in smoking won’t get affected in a negative way. Violation of this law is a serious offense. Transgressors will pay a fine of P6,000.00 (even on first attempt of violation) and be required to comply with a 20-day community service. Otherwise, he/she will be imprisoned with a range of eight months to a year and a half. A law like this aims to promote the welfare of the majority. The government shouldn’t let their health be at risk.

  52. Smoking is bad for our health. Engaging ourselves to smoking will do us no good. A law propose that Smoking is banned for the whole country is really a good news. The only problem I can see is, till how long will it be follow by by the people? Most of the people are only good at the first few months and eventually will stop if isn’t a big thing anymore. The law they are about to release should have a very strong punishment so that they will really need to stop. The punishment to those who dare not to follow this should be heavy since, the health condition of the people around them (second hand smokers) is at risks. And, the second hand smokers health are at risk more than the smokers itself.
