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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
