A.Cigarette and Smoking
This writing is used to give information about cigarette and smoking, to improve our knowledge about cigarette and smoking, and to finish my writing assignment.
In this writing, I use observation method and library method. Observation method is I observe or I asked to object directly. Library method is I read books about dangerous of cigarette and smoking.
There are many dangers of smoking to the body, to the immediate family, to the society, to the environment and to the economy. More than 700 chemical additives are found in cigarettes. Some of them are classified as toxic and are not allowed in food.
Key words that often I use in this writing are cigarette, smoke, smoking, dangerous, and advantages.
In this kind of essay, we not only give information but also present an argument with the PROS (supporting ideas) and CONS (opposing ideas) of an argumentative issue. We should clearly take our stand and write as if we are trying to persuade an opposing audience to adopt new beliefs or behavior. The primary objective is to persuade people to change beliefs that many of them do not want to change.
There are many smokers around me. They very enjoy with smoking. They are very proud of it. One of them said that people who do not smoking are not modern. They are in old style. Some of them do not know about the dangerous of it. Some others know, but they still smoking. There are many of them get disease and past away because of cigarette. Because of statement above, I take cigarette and smoking become my object of my writing.
Experts at The Cancer Institute of New Jersey (CINJ) are available for comment on the development of lung cancer and other related effects of smoking, which are being addressed by this unique day of youth activism. CINJ is a Center of Excellence of UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
A.CIGARETTE AND SMOKING
What do you think about smoking? Are you interested? Smoking is a bad habit. Smoking can make our body is not good. It means we put the dangerous chemical in our body. Person who smokes a cigarette cannot think in real situation. I mean, they cannot face their real life. Therefore, they take a cigarette to make their mind be happy.
We know that smoking is danger. I think it is not useful to everyone. Usually, people become smokers because others people smoking. It can damage the health. Smoking does not make the body grow well and make the skin becomes wrinkled, also many of our physical health are affected by smoking.
Cigarette is a dangerous material. In cigarette substance, contain nicotine. Nicotine is a substance found in tobacco leaves that can cause addiction. This substance is also extremely dangerous, because cessation of breathing, raises blood pressure and accelerate heart rate, and carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that can remove oxygen in the body and also causes constriction of blood vessels.
Although they know about dangerous of smoking, they are still want to smoking. They cannot leave it. Why? It happen because in a cigarette consist of many dangerous chemical. One of them is nicotine. Nicotine can make them be depended. They are difficult to leave it, and they cannot stop it, although they want to stop it.
We know there are two types of smokers. They are active smoker and passive smoker. Active smoker is person who smoke cigarette directly. Passive smoker is person who is not inhale smoke directly.
There are advantages of people who do not smoking. They are, not exposed to the risk of illness due to toxin tobacco, the body becomes healthy, fresh, well, and growing normally, can be protected from air pollution (cigarette smoke), and we can save our money.
New smokers rise up so quickly. It happen because there are some advertisements of smoking is so famous in society. There are many interesting images and illustration. It tell about smoker is a success person and a brave person. Smoker can pass barricade.
One thing that makes me sad is smokers rise up from years to years. It means there are additions in new smokers (passive smokers) become active smokers. They smoke along in their life. The new smokers are children and teenagers.
Base on data in Komnas Perlindungan Anak (2007) show that, 91, 7% teenagers (13-14 years old) in Jakarta become smokers. It always rises up from years to years. It means that account of death is rise up too.
Base on data that I get from internet, there are many problems coming from smoking. The problems are, smokers have low lung function than people who do not smoking, and it make our lung cannot grow well. In some adult smokers, diseases are caused by smoking are heart disease and stroke, but it happen in teenagers smokers too. People who smoking one pack or more than in a day, they will get lifeless until 7 years than people who do not smoking. Smoking in children age will rise to get lung cancer.
Base on data, we can take a conclusion that there are some reason the smokers smoke are nicotine, advertisement, and they get stress in their life. There is no advantage of smoking. It just spends our money and it can affect in our body.
