20) “Smoking does not pollute much”. That’s one more tobacco lie that’s to be replaced with the truth that there are more than 4000 substances in the cigarette smoke that should not be in the air we all breath. The human lungs, as any other lungs of the lunged creatures on our planet were not created to metabolize or to deal with such conditions that did not exist 50 years ago, 100 years ago and never before.

These substances are brought/supplemented in the air every time the smoker lights up. Of course, they do not disappear afterwards and they accumulate in the atmosphere. With any smoked cigarette, the air is enriched – and intoxicated- with the mentioned 4000: some volatile, gaseous ( like carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, ammonia, volatile nitrosamines, hydrogen cyanide, volatile sulfur containing compounds, volatile hydrocarbons, alcohols, phenols, formaldehyde and other aldehydes, ketones,etc) some others as solid particles [like polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons -such as benzpyrene- , cadmium, nickel, arsenic, radioactive polonium-210, tobacco-specific, solid nitrosamines (TSNAs : N-nitrosoanabasine (NAB), N-nitrosoanabatine (NAT),4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK), and nitrosonornicotine (NNN). Of these, NNK and NNN have the greatest mutagenic potential. NNK and NNN have been shown to cause DNA adducts associated with tumors in rodents and are classified as human carcinogens )].

There are no natural or artificial cleaning systems to eliminate/neutralize the tobacco smoke from the atmosphere.

The tobacco industry produces 5.5 trillions of cigarettes every year (wikipedia) for the smokers all over the world.

The moment before starting to smoke any of the 5.5 trillions of cigarettes, the air is less polluted / poisoned than afterwards.

QUITTING FOR GOOD AND FOR EVER (CLICK!) the addiction to tobacco and nicotine stops the intoxication of the quitter with the lies and the errors mentioned above, transforming the ex-smoker into an excellent exemple to follow.

Smoking t&n does not exist without smokers. Staying for ever away of the very strong drug called nicotine spares non smokers to be sources and propagators of the t&n lies, of the smokers’ mistakes and the serious consequences of these mistakes reflected on every citizen belonging to our planet.

  7. No change. I’ve tried also on many other sites and…nothing.
    I’m not at all impressed with all those cemetery images and those death sugesting messages against tobacco. They’re simply stupid.
    Sorry to bother you. I know I must quit, I’d like to, but I still do not find THAT thing to make me keep in mind what I should and stop once and for real.

    • Idea no 1: a visit to the nearest hospital, keeping in mind that smoking can cause & worsen any of the miseries seen there and that you do not want to keep the door largely open to any of those troubles in your life.
      Idea no 2 : Tell us here about your hospital visit.

  8. Very good this sum of reasons. Could you, please add more images. I’d like to send here my daughter and without images, she can not be kept more than few seconds. Please !

  9. You’ve promised more images. Please, hurry to place them. I want to convince my smoking son to have a look on your site for a while, but I do not dare to waste my words with him untill you do not have more images. If he sees only text, he runs away…
