World Health Organisation highlights the bad impact of tobacco on the human body and other diseases associated with tobacco use. World Health Organisation always promote the policies which encourage people to stop or quit the use of tobacco.
The chemicals which a tobacco smoke contains are very harmful and they are the chemicals which promote or initiate Cancer in your body.

All these chemicals are the stepping stones of cancer and other health problems like heart disease, lung disease, stroke and other health problems.

As per the reports by World Health Organisation, around 6 to 7 millions of people dies because of the use of the tobacco every year. The World Health Organisation has set the theme for this year’s ‘World No Tobacco Day’ is “Tobacco – a threat to development”.
How People Become Addicted to Tobacco
When a person smokes just within 10 seconds of inhaling the cigarette smoke, the main and most effective chemical present in cigarette ‘Nicotine’ immediately reaches to the brain and which becomes the reason of release of ‘Epinephrine’ a hormone produced by your body also known as Adrenaline. The Adrenaline is a kind of hormone which gives the feeling of pleasure/happiness and gives you instant energy. This rapture given by the hormone is very short-lived and gone away quite quickly but the feeling of getting more and more nicotine keeps increasing day by day with the passage of time. And this is how people become addicts to tobacco and this habit becomes really hard for them to quit.
How To Quit Tobacco
Quitting Tobacco is really tough but once you made up your mind for something nothing is impossible and this is the main thing required her. The psychiatrists said that you need to set your mind in order to quit the use of tobacco. Senior psychiatrist D Keshav Rao said that “We call it motivational therapy, which means somehow motivate the addict to give up smoking or consuming tobacco directly. Today, people are more aware of the ill effects of tobacco but somehow they come up with reasons to justify their tobacco consumption.”
So, all the people who smoke should make up their mind and take some medical help if required and should quit smoking and the use of tobacco in order to stay healthy and fit and to stay away from the harmful diseases. One should value one’s life and life should not be wasted like this.
