Well, as they say, Cigarette is a stick with fire on one end and a fool on another. This is actually true. In this era of free information flow and internet around, one can find 100s of websites and reports on the harm that smoking cigarette causes. In India alone, smoking causes more than 8,00,000 deaths every year, which is definitely not a happy figure. Not only this number, but each single death leaves more than 3-4 people disappointed their whole lives.

I don’t understand what pleasure one derives from smoking. Let me not discuss the pleasures, I have not experienced them, but simple logic is why would someone enjoy something knowing that it is deadly?

And the saddest part is that the young, school going students are developing this habit off late. I have come across many instances where a surprise check by school management in students’ bags and pockets unveil cigarettes. This is seriously a bad trend developing.

Udaipur being a small town where most people would know each other, I have very often seen my well-known smoking at clandestine locations. All I can do is let them do so since we all have freedom to whatever we want. But I fail to digest the stuff.

Some day of the year we celebrate World Tobacco Day where a lot of things are said and published about the ill effects of tobacco, but after that we all forget till next year. It is very important to keep pushing all the smokers to quit smoking every day.

The young guys/gals who feel ‘cool’ while smoking must understand that it slowly – KILLS. The lungs that process the air inside human body get rusted in a longer period of time. The whole body gets rusted slowly and an early death becomes inevitable.

And believe me; the pain of losing someone dear is the deepest pain that never heals. So if not for yourself, you must quit smoking immediately for you Mom – Dad, Wife, Kids, Brothers, Sisters, Friends and all the loved ones. They cannot see your body in ashes because of the ash you have burned!

The young body does not need an eroding agent, rather it needs nutritious food. So quit smoking and tell all your near ones that ‘I QUIT FOR YOU’.

Please quit smoking – ‘IT KILLS’.
