Smoking causes the body to suffer from numerous irreversible damages and shortens a person’s lifespan by 25 years, both of which are known facts. However, few people are aware of the risks associated with cigarette addiction.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), smoking is the leading preventable cause of death; on average, a smoker dies 13 to 14 years earlier than a non-smoker; they die from cancer, heart disease, and lung diseases like emphysema, chronic airway obstruction, and bronchitis. Beyond health effects, there are negative effects including financial and social factors. Additionally, smoking affects more than just the smoker; second, it affects those around them.

Health Effects

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) reports that 438,000 deaths are attributed to cigarette smoking each year; an additional 38,000 deaths are caused by secondhand smoke. Cigarette smoke has the potential to harm nearly every organ in the body, according to MedlinePlus, an online medical encyclopedia associated with the National Institutes of Health. A staggering 87 percent of smokers report having experienced some form of lung cancer.

Social Effects

Smoking is also prohibited indoors in many places, and smoking can have adverse social effects as well. According to a CNNhealth.com article written by Theresa Tamkins in September 2009, 32 states have some sort of smoking ban that forbids smoking in public places and/or buildings, and many European nations have similar bans, including England, Scotland, France, and Ireland.

Financial Effects

The high cost of cigarettes today put a serious dent in the family’s finances, and smokers tend to have more health issues that require money to be treated medically. Smoking also costs the general public money: the CDC estimates that cigarette smoking costs the U.S. more than $193 billion, including money in lost productivity (due to illness and other reasons).
