Transcript Stop Smoking

JUST STOP
•Tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 different chemicals. At least 50 are known
carcinogens (cause cancer in humans) and many are poisonous.
•Tobacco kills up to half of its regular users.
•Tobacco caused 100 million deaths in the 20th century
•Scientists claim the average smoker will lose 14 years of their life due to
smoking
•Nicotine reaches the brain within 10 seconds after smoke is inhaled. It has been
found in every part of the body and in breast milk.
•Nicotine is a strong poisonous drug. It is the main ingredient in insecticides or
bug sprays. In its pure form, just one drop on a person's tongue would kill
him/her.

More than 3 million Americans quit smoking each year
Sugar approximates to roughly
20% of a cigarette, and many
diabetics are unaware of this secret
sugar intake. Also, the effect of
burning sugar is unknown.
‘Lite’ cigarettes are produced by
infusing tobacco with CO2 and
superheating it until the tobacco
‘puffs up’ like expanding foam. The
expanded tobacco then fills the
same paper tube as ‘regular’
tobacco.
Smokers draw on ‘lite’ and menthol cigarettes harder (on average) than regular
cigarettes; causing the same overall levels of tar and nicotine to be consumed
Several active ingredients and special methods of production are involved in making
sure the nicotine in a cigarette is many times more potent than that of a tobacco plant.
The United States is the only major cigarette market in the world in which the
percentage of women smoking cigarettes (22%) comes close to the number of men
who smoke (35%).
Tobacco caused 100 million deaths in the 20th century
Cigarette smoking is responsible for 30% of all cancer
deaths.
Smokers die not only of lung cancer but also of
cancers of the mouth, larynx (throat), esophagus,
bladder, kidney, cervix, and blood (leukemia).
87% of all lung cancers are caused by smoking. Since
1987, lung cancer has been the number one killer of
women.
Women who smoke more than 15 cigarettes a day
double their risk of getting cervical cancer.
Emphysema is a lung disease that has no cure. A
person with this disease has difficulty breathing
because the walls of the small air sacs in the lungs
are being destroyed.
A person with emphysema gets tired very easily.
He/she uses up so much energy just to breathe.
As the disease gets worse, he/she cannot breathe in
enough oxygen from the air and has to breathe
through tubes attached to an oxygen tank.
There is no cure for emphysema.
JUST STOP!
Several active ingredients and special methods of production are involved in making
sure the nicotine in a cigarette is many times more potent than that of a tobacco plant.
Heavy smokers also increase their chances of getting Peripheral Vascular Disease
(PVD).
In this disease the arteries that lead to the limbs (arms and legs) keep getting narrower.
As a result, not enough oxygen-rich blood goes to the arms and/or legs.
If the arteries get closed and no blood gets to a limb, the person gets gangrene. The
limb then dies and must be amputated.
A man with Peripheral Vascular Disease may have trouble performing sex.
More than 3 million Americans quit smoking each year
Cigarettes are one of few products which can be sold legally which can harm and even
kill you over time if used as intended
In 1992, Philip Morris alone paid $4.5 billion in taxes. This makes it the largest tax
payer in the U.S.
Second hand smoke is dangerous
Each year second hand smoke causes
300,000 respiratory or lung infections in
children younger than a year and a half.
15,000 of them must be hospitalized.
Children of smokers have more colds,
pneumonia, bronchitis, ear infections, and
asthma attacks.
They may suffer from coughing, wheezing,
too much phlegm or mucus, burning eyes,
headaches, and sore or dry mouth.
In addition, smoking can make any allergies
related to breathing worse.
All the poisons from cigarette smoke that
enter a mother's blood are passed along to
her fetus.
Babies of smokers are more likely to be born
with low birth weights (less than 5 1/2
pounds) and birth defects.
Smoking also increases a woman's chance of
having a miscarriage by 24%.

ARE YOU READY?
The first step in quitting is deciding whether or not a person is ready. The more reasons
a person has to quit, the more likely he/she will really do it. After deciding that a person
is ready, he/she should write a list of all his/her own reasons for quitting.

The second step is choosing a quit date. A
person must decide when is the best time
for him/her.
He/she should pick a date when no big
changes are going on in his/her life.
It would not be good to choose a stressful
time.
One should not try to quit smoking if he/she
just lost a job, started a new job, separated
from a husband or wife, lost his/her
housing, moved into a new apartment, or
bought a house.

Keep Trying, believe in yourself,
take your health seriously, stay committed
Did you know that approximately 46.5 million adults in the United States smoke
cigarettes and studies show that nearly 70% of them want to quit?
Cigarettes are the leading cause of up to 1,200 Americans dying daily.
Approximately 4.9 million people die each year from the use of tobacco
products.
About 1 out of every 5 deaths in the US can be attributed to tobacco products.
Laser treatments for smoking cessation and weight control have been used in
Europe and Canada for over 23 years. Success rates range from 60-94%,
depending upon the clinic.
This easy and successful method of treatment is now available in the United
Sates.
Cold laser therapy is one the fastest growing quit smoking programs available
in America.
Choosing to quit smoking and become
an ex-smoker is a powerful act"
