Day of struggle against smoking - an opportunity to live without cigarettes
World smoking day was established in 1987 by the World Health Organization (WHO), and this day is celebrated every year on 31 May. WHO established it not just so, but in order to attract people's attention to such an acute social problem as smoking, and to acquaint them with all the terrible consequences of tobacco dependence. This is the first ever epidemic that can be prevented, and healthcare is actively fighting to ensure that such a huge problem disappears once and for all.
According to WHO, about 25 diseases develop or are exacerbated by this addiction, and every tenth person in the world dies of it. On the day of the fight against smoking, people in a variety of ways try to convey the necessary information that this is not just a harmful, but a deadly habit.
The incidence of lung cancer is steadily increasing, and the likelihood of this disease in a smoker is 20 times higher. Do not forget about angina pectoris, stomach ulcer, ischemic heart disease, brain diseases, which in most cases are associated with smoking. Are not yellow fingers and teeth disgusting, a gray complexion, and even the smell of tobacco from a man?
On the day of the fight against smoking, many actions are held with the use ofm of visual materials, at the sight of which the desire to smoke should disappear in any sensible person. Many actions are held to explain the consequences of smoking for women and girls who show a terrible example to children or harm their bodies, which will affect the health of future children.
Deeply mistaken are those people who do not smoke and believe that the day of fighting with smoking has nothing to do with them. But what about passive smoking, which is no less harmful than active smoking? A non-smoking person sniffs tobacco smoke daily, being in public places, passing a smoking company, walking in the park and even being in his own house. And passive smoking can also lead to fatal diseases. Know, participating in the fight against this addiction, non-smokers not only help smokers cope with this problem, but also take care of their health at the same time.
You can not remain indifferent to teenage smoking. The day of fighting against smoking is a great opportunity to help children who have already embarked on the wrong path, to reconsider their goals and priorities in life. Parents who smoke in the presence of their child, force him to establish himself in the mistaken opinion that a smoking person looks more solid, it is easier for him to attract attention to himself or to assert himself in the company. This is not true, but the child, for whom parents are a model of behavior, does not know about this.
Today it is strictly forbidden to sell tobacco products to under-age children. But do not be fooled, thinking that the child will not find a way to buy cigarettes.
Try to spend a day without tobacco, along with those who need help and support, who want to get rid of the terrible dependence and enjoy life without cigarettes.
