If one is asked which of the bad habits one must give up first, the answer will be ‘smoking’. The gravity of the danger that rises from smoking tobacco is little indicated when it is said that smoking is injurious to health. There should not be any second consideration when it will be said that the smokers must quit smoking. Smokers usually state that they cannot quit smoking easily. There are suggestions after suggestions addressed to them so that they can finally free them from this evil bondage.
Smokers should be made aware of the loss they may suffer due to smoking tobacco. The smokers should know that injury caused by smoking tobacco is not limited to infection in the lungs only. They must know it right now that smoking invites cancer. What a great loss of humanity it is! Smoking of tobacco is much more formidable. The collective and cumulative effect of direct and indirect inhaling of the smoke, as well as spread of the smoke on the lower surface of the atmosphere, has already done great damage to the environment. Hence, the smokers must quit smoking immediately.
Awareness campaign or campaign against smoking can exert expected pressure on the psyche of the smokers, and this campaign should be continuous and forceful. All kinds of printing and electronic media should come forward and volunteer for such campaign instead of leaving the mission entirely to the non-governmental organizations.
Some people hold such opinion that the smokers should fix a date to ensure the last date for smoking. Smokers should quit smoking gradually. It is uncertain if these measures produce positive results.
On the other hand, it is always better to improve their own decision, and everything depends on how determined they are to achieve the target. Men and women, in large number, have freed them from this unhealthy habit in the past. Hence, one can do it if one is firm in the belief that it is possible. The sooner the smokers make the decision to quit smoking the better it is for them, because the globe has been preparing to ban smoking of tobacco once for all.
