Statistics on Teen Smoking Approximately 80% of adult smokers started smoking before the age of 18. Every day, nearly 3,000 young people under the age of 18 become regular smokers. Nearly all first use of tobacco occurs before high school graduation.
Types of Tobacco Chewing Tobacco Snuff Pipes Cigars Cigarettes
Chemicals in Tobacco A stimulant More than 4000 chemicals 10% are carcinogens or poisonous Carcinogens are cancer causing agents The 3 most poisonous chemicals are: tar, nicotine, and carbon monoxide
Nicotine Psychoactive substance- causes a change in the person’s mood or behavior Very addictive- causes a physical dependence
Tar Tiny pieces that when inhaled in to the lungs, condense and form a sticky coating on the bronchial tubes Same substance used to pave roads!!! Destroys cilia, waving hair-like projections that work to keep the respiratory tract clear.
Carbon Monoxide A colorless, odorless, poisonous gas released by burning tobacco Interferes with the blood’s ability to carry oxygen Same gas from car exhaust –if inhaled directly-can be fatal
Second Hand smoke Mainstream smoking- passes through the tobacco and filter when the smoker inhales –what a smoker inhales
Sidestream smoke- rises from the cigarette when the smoker is not inhaling This contains 2x more nicotine and tar, and 5x more CO than mainstream Non-smokers who live with smokers have a 20-30% HIGHER risk of dying from heart disorders than non- smokers who live with non-smokers!!!
Passive smoker- a person who inhales the sidestream smoke –smoke inhaled by non- smokers Passive smoke can cause: Heart disease*Asthma Eye irritation*Cancer Ear infections Emphysema
Smokeless Tobacco Cracking and bleeding lips and gums receding gums, which can eventually make your teeth fall out increased heart rate, high blood pressure, and irregular heartbeats=leading to a greater risk of heart attacks and brain damage ORAL CANCER-lips, tongue, cheeks, gums, ANYWHERE IN MOUTH! CANCER-stomach, esophagus, bladder
How much money do you save by not smoking??? LETS FIND OUT!!!
Let’s say someone smokes 1 pack a day… Per PACK they will spend $5 Per WEEK they will spend $35 Per MONTH they will spend $140 Per YEAR they will spend $1680 5 YEARS= $8400 10 YEARS= $16,800 What would you buy with this much money??
About 90 percent of lung cancer deaths in men and almost 80 percent of lung cancer deaths in women are due to smoking. People who smoke are 10 to 20 times more likely to get lung cancer or die from lung cancer than people who do not smoke
Effects on the body When you inhale a cigarette, the nicotine travels to the bloodstream and then to the brain- this only take 8 seconds Heart will beat faster Blood pressure will increase Become more alert and energetic Sense of smell and taste decrease Yellow Teeth, Fingernails Smelly clothes, hair, breath, house, car, etc. “Smokers Voice”
LUNG CANCER growth of malignant cells that attack and replace healthy cells NO CURE!! Now kills more women than breast cancer! Many females believe smoking causes weight loss-There is NO PROOF of this being true!
Chronic Bronchitis –Inflammation of the bronchial tubes –Chronic coughing, excessive mucus production –Cilia becomes useless-covered with tar
Pulmonary Emphysema Pulmonary=LUNGS Destruction of tiny air sacs in lungs which absorb oxygen into the body Tiny air sacs=ALVEOLI Instead of using only 5% of their energy to breathe, a person with advanced emphysema uses 80% of their energy to breathe!!
How to quit Hypnosis Therapy Support groups Medicine- patch, gum Cold Turkey is best!!
