Cigarette smoking has grown and become more popular and widespread among users in the 20th century. The
term “cigarette” was used to refer to a smaller version of a cigar.Cigarettes are made from leaves they’re dried out first then they become tobacco. Additives such as reconstituted tobacco were added making cigarettes twice as more addictive. That is one of the reason why people find smoking hard too kick.

However often cigarette smokers don’t consider the hazardous effects from smoking, not just mainly to the users but most especially to non-users’ health. While others derive satisfaction and delight from smoking, they’re neglecting the idea that second hand smoke, this is more dangerous compared to the effects of smoking to direct users. Research shows that second hand smoke contains more than 4,000 various chemicals whereby at least 43 of which can cause cancer. It can also cause diseases such as malfunctions of the heart, lung cancer, emphysema, and bronchitis. Aside from the harm it may inflect to adults, it is more dangerous to children and newborn babies, since their body organs are still developing. When children are too much exposed to second hand smoke, it can result in premature deaths.

With this knowledge in mind, people should be more acting more responsible and considering other people around them.  They should be aware that they are putting them  at risk, especially within the presents of children.

Cigarette smoking is an old pastime hobby that should be forgotten.
