We and all of us understand very well, that smoking is synonymous with spreading poison.
Cigarettes can cause various health problems, when inhaled, the smoke will seem like a poison pill that you deliberately consume to damage all organs in the body and endanger health, especially health problems related to the respiratory system. Smoking can cause stress in the respiratory tract, both in the short and long term.
Unfortunately, nowadays smoking has become part of the habits and lifestyle of most people, especially men. So it is very difficult to control, unless there is awareness of the smoker himself to at least reduce the intensity of smoking.
The impact of smoking does not only come from the smoker himself, but people who are also around the smoker will also feel the impact of the danger when inhaling the smoke that flies in the air, they are called passive smokers.
The disadvantages of smoking are not just striking and causing health problems only. However, it also causes financial problems that lead to various problems. For heavy smokers who are already so addictive, they will be able to finish dozens of cigarettes every day. This condition will of course occur gradually.
From an ordinary smoker, over time this habit will make the number of cigarettes they spend will continue to grow and increase. In this way, of course, the budget spent on buying cigarettes and satisfying his smoking desires will certainly increase. So how much more budget do they have to spend to buy cigarettes and satisfy their cravings?
It doesn’t matter, as long as the smoker always has a sufficient budget to buy cigarettes, but for some smokers who have financial problems, this condition will certainly cause problems and it is not impossible, the person concerned will do everything he can to make money for smoking, which means the risk of the threat of crime will be even greater.
In addition, the most worrying impact of smoking by some people is the intolerance of other non-smokers. For example, when a smoker is in a public facility where there are other people who are at risk of being vulnerable to the dangers of cigarette smoke such as babies, people who have respiratory system problems and others will of course be more dangerous for them. Not to mention, another problem that has not yet been found a solution is that the smoker cannot adjust himself to other people in the public environment.
The Latin danger of smoking is closely related to the onset of respiratory disease. One type of respiratory disease that is often threatening is lung disease. The cause of cigarette smoke will make the lungs dirty, this condition can indicate that your lungs are starting to get damaged.
The metaphor that can describe this happening is the kitchen ceiling. A clean ceiling, with constant exposure to smoke from the frying pan, will gradually start to become dirty and black due to the smoke generated from cooking. Likewise what happens when you inhale cigarette smoke. This bad habit will make the lungs that were clean become polluted and over time it will make your lungs even more dirty and polluted.
The condition of the contaminated lungs will be susceptible to increasing this part to be attacked by many problems or diseases. As a result, this condition will also affect your health.
Actually there are so many types of diseases that can be caused by cigarette smoke, not only in the lungs, generally there is no single organ in the body that is not affected by cigarette smoke, because almost all parts of the body can be damaged by cigarette smoke that is still in the body.
However, this time we will discuss the dangers of smoke and smoking habits that can cause health problems, especially in the lungs. Like what? We see below.
Lung Disease Arising from Smoking Habits
Pneumonia is a type of lung disease that can cause inflammation or inflammation in the lung. This is because the part has an infection. The infection that occurs can be caused by several small microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites.
Smoking can affect the immune system because it often invites respiratory tract infections. Along with the weakening of the bronchi and lungs, this impaired immunity will facilitate exposure to bacteria and microorganisms such as the pneumoia virus will be able to enter and settle in the lungs, as a result it can damage lung tissue.
Emphysema is a type of lung disease that occurs as a result of damage to the air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs so that it can disrupt the respiratory system.
Dangerous substances such as cigarette smoke that enter the body will damage the walls of the air sacs. This damage will get worse, if the smoking habit gets worse.
Keep in mind, the leakage of the air sacs of the lungs can cause the lungs not to be able to fill fresh air completely, so this condition will affect the supply of oxygen to the whole body.
This disease condition can cause breathing to be very disturbed, your breath will feel more tight and other problems will appear, such as fatigue because the lungs have to work extra to supply oxygen.
Bronchitis is a lung disease that can cause inflammation of the mucous membrane of the bronchi. Bronchi are the airways from the trachea or windpipe to the lungs. Bronchitis itself is divided into two parts, namely acute bronchitis and chronic bronchitis.
Irritation that occurs in the airways or bronchi can occur due to the presence of cigarette smoke that occurs gradually in a smoker. This habit of inhaling cigarette smoke will enter the respiratory tract and cause the bronchi to produce an inflammatory response and excessive mucus, which is unable to be eliminated naturally by damaged cilia (fine hairs in the mucus layer). The result is that sufferers will often experience a cough that encourages phlegm which blocks the respiratory tract.
You need to know that bronchitis is an early form of Chronic Obstructive Disease (COPD) which can be fatal, especially if you don’t get medical help right away, the danger can be life-threatening.
For this reason, the best step to avoid all the threats of other respiratory diseases in a worse condition is to stop the smoking habit that you are currently doing.
4. Lung Cancer
Lung cancer is a type of lung disease that arises with symptoms of uncontrolled cell growth located in the lung. This condition is often caused by the deposition of smoke in that section.
The carsiogenesis mechanism (cancer cell formation) is a series of fairly complex processes. Other factors that can increase this disease in a person include high oxidative stress, immune factors, and the most important thing is that smoking is high enough to increase the risk of a sufferer developing lung cancer.
These are some types of lung disease that can arise as a result of smoking. Hopefully this is useful and becomes your consideration to immediately stop smoking.
