What are Cigarettes?

Straight Up

By Oliver Sparks, Staff Writer

(Healingtalks) Cigarettes are something that will mess up our minds. Straight up!

The PrimaryMind Twister in Cigarettes

The primary psychoactive, or “mind twisting” chemical in cigarettes,  is obviously nicotine.
“Mind twisting” means changing your thought process unnaturally and harmfully.

We fall for this because sometimes we get stressed and need a quick fix. When that first warm inhaling feel of sweet carbon monoxide and fiberglass fills your chest, in just 10 seconds, it appears all stress is gone. Now it’s up to you to finish the cigarette, slowly rotting your lungs.

So there is a catch. Yes you get immediate gratification for a price. In a decade or two you mess up your lungs – what filters and brings in oxygen, the carrier of life, to all of your cells.

What’s Else Is In Cigarettes

And that’s not all. Over 4,300 more separate chemicals can be found in a single cigarette. But when these all are burned together, they cause even more toxic chemical compounds to form. This is why, in 1970, Nixon passed a bill requiring a warning label on all packs of cigarettes, now commonly known as the Surgeon General’s Warning. Additionally the bill outlawed TV cigarette ads in commercials. Yet cigarette smoking recently is on an upswing, especially among teens.

As it turns out, approximately one quarter of the youth alive in the Western Pacific Region (East Asia and the Pacific) today will die from tobacco use. Cigarette smoking is the second major cause of premature death, worldwide.

So what are cigarettes?

A ticking time bomb in tiny tubes that should all have skull and bones marked on the them by law.

A smoking cylindrical death and a cause of dismemberment.
