Smoking is considered to be unhealthy by experts yet, some can’t just do without it. Others see smoking as a way to reduce pressure and anxiety, when they feel depressed or troubled they smoke to get relieved. Although, the percentage of smokers has greatly reduced from 20 to 13%, most young people are still into it. About 21 out of every 100 adults are known to be addicted, despite warnings issued by some health experts, some have continued with different types of weed like marijuana which dangerously affect their health. Some stand for the fact that weed is better than smoking with reasons to back up their claims.
Manufacturers of cigarettes have often warned smokers of the dangers of taking excessive weed. What many can’t still fathom is the fact that companies still go-ahead to produce different kinds of weed even when they understand the implications to those who take it. Most young adults around have given in to smoking as a way of life. Some will rather save money to buy a pack of a cigarette than provide for their families. John Reed was a young lad of 17-years-old born in the Bahamas. At the age of 5, he started having a passion for smoking, the mother has been addicted to smoking even while she was pregnant with John. She received series of warnings from the doctor to stay away from smoking yet she wouldn’t listen.
When John was born, somehow he acquired the desire for smoking from the womb. The father noticed that every time the mother was smoking around the baby he stops crying immediately. Smoking was the only thing that could stop him from crying. At 7, the mother led him to vape weed as a way to get him distracted and maybe go to sleep. This went on for years without the knowledge of Johns’ father. At 17, Reed had become addicted to marijuana and all kinds of weed, not only that, Reed went ahead to join a team. They had a particular building where all the smokers met regularly.
In less than no time, Reed became ill, after series of diagnosis it was discovered that his lungs were damaged as a result of the heat inhaled, the smoke destroyed John’s lungs and affected his heart. Unfortunately for the mother, they lost him. This is the fate of many addicted smokers, those who can resist the urge have considered vaping weed as another alternative. Since smoking is known to affect internal organs, vaping weed according to them will keep them away from any lung infections. Apart from being cost-effective compared to normal smoking that causes people to inhale the smoke, it reduces the rate of lung infection.
Others feel weed is more decent, healthy, and prestigious, most wealthy people will rather go for vaping because it looks dignifying. The smoke doesn’t get in contact with their body as it is being released into the atmosphere. Whatever may be the reason why people chose to smoke, the effects can’t be denied. It is required of those concerned to exercise caution to avoid deadly implications.
