Smoking cigarette is a habit some people pick during their lifetime.It is alsoa difficult habit to kick as the nicotine in the cigarette is very addictive.Althoughmany people are aware of the dangers of smoking,the number of smokers isincreasing.In fact,at least 200 million women in this world are smokers.This figureis illustrated by the common scenarios of women smoking in Asian countries.Ithas now become a norm for Asian women to smoke as it has for Western women.There are many reasons as why people pick up this unhealthy habit.Foryoung smokers,such as tenagers,smoking is due to pressure.Friends smoke andinvite you to try it out.This trying out session is usually done in groups.Thoseoutside the group or rather those who refuse to try smoking are somehow bulliedor lured into trying.The trial sessions go on for some time and finally some of them become habitual smokers.To the the teenagers,smoking makes them feel independent,sophisticatedand grow up.They indulge in smoking and become chain smokers.By the time theyrealise the dangers of smoking,it is already difficult for them to quit thehabit.Those who get addicted at a leter age,blame it on the workingenvironment.Some start off as social smokers;they smoke only when they arewith friends,and others see smoking as a way of releasing tension due to workpressure.It helps them to relax and cope with the demands of work.The dangers of smoking have been advocated at home,in schools and in themedia,but it seems to be falling on deaf ears.The society still fails to see the longterm effects that this habit has on them.Those who smoke an everage pack a dayfinally succumb to lung cancer,heart attack and emphysema.Women smokersespecially face greater effects.Those who fail to kick the habit even when they arepregnant will endanger the child that they are bearing.There have been reportedcases of babies born handicap due to smoking mothers.
