|One puff from a cigarette break can trick you into feeling good that manufacturing a whole bunch can only be heaven. But are cigarette manufacturers looking at the environmental impacts of the tobacco industry?
Manufacturing cigarettes have become a necessary industry since the mid 1800's. The addictive 400 chemicals inside one cigarette is the main reason why over 1.1 billion people are hooked with the bad habit and steadily rising from 3.24% each year since 2002. Thousands of ads have been campaigning to smokers to quit the addictive habit and it has been slowly getting a hold to these smokers when campaigns were focused on both health and environmental impacts of smoking.
30% of Americans practice smoking due to their compulsive disorders although at first glance , most of these smokers claim to just wanting to try smoking out. Imagine these same 30% of the population emitting tons of harmful chemicals in the atmosphere and causing respiratory problems to those who do not smoke. The percentage figure doubles up when the setting is in developing countries. This is due to the lack of campaign awareness in these developing nations about the harmful effects of smoking not only to the smoker but also to their surroundings. Second hand smoke is much deadlier compared to what the smokers inhale because of the free radicals that enhances the chemicals released in the air when smoking. Cases of respiratory health disorders are increasing in most countries who have higher percentage of smokers and it ultimately leads to air pollution.
Also, cigarette production can be detrimental towards the environment. Imagine cutting down a full-grown tree just to produce 300 sticks of cigarettes and their packaging that covers around 4 miles of paper roll. And to date, manufacturing 5.5 trillion sticks of cigarettes supply the 1.1 trillion smokers all over the world annually. Do the math and you can come up with a devastating figure of the trees being put down due to the production of cigarettes. Tobacco planting has been high since the start of the cigarette industry converting farming lands into tobacco plantations. The acres of agricultural lands are being cultivated for vice could have fed millions of hungry people.
After consumption of cigarettes have also contributed to the pollution this vice has been spreading in the planet. Cigarette butts on average measures 30% of its original whole length. This becomes a problem with how these cigarette butts will be properly disposed. Those find their way to the water systems or the ground still have some of the 400 harmful chemicals left inside them to seep in to natural resources and causes pollution in their biosphere. Not to mention, some cigarette butts that still have a light also tends to create wild fires and bush fires. Destroying considerable amount of natural environments and at times , accidents too.
And so as billions are benefiting from the manufacturing of cigarettes, there are millions who suffer from the dreaded alter effects of cigarette smoking and production. Campaigns focused on the environmental impacts should be pushed more and awareness of the detrimental effects of smoking cigarettes should be implemented in the new laws ad regulations from different territories faithfully. Makes you think of throwing the cigarette smoking habit for good, does it?
When I went to bed last night, I had a piece of paper in my hand aiming to write some thoughts in my head , flashed, as only those unformed midnight thoughts. It was all made up of unexpected burning words; don't know why I thought about doing this? I don't feel want to write, I used to type it on my PC, as if my pen has corroded.
I knew even in my half-sleep it was nonsense , meaningless, but that forcing and hammering would clear its shape. But then when I started writing, not a word of it remains, not even a hint of its direction Beginning to feel sleepier , I surrendered & turned off the lights, that was shortly after midnight.
I usually have dreamless sleep I wished if I would dream of anything that night. just as soon as I closed my eyes; thoughts popped up in my head, I knew if I tried to catch them again it will be in vain. And when I wake up in the morning I will forget all about it. I usually have that easy sleep, but something was preventing me that day from sleep.
Light was coming through my window; I left it half open to see the moon rays falling on the curtain , it made wonderful shapes with that pale grey & silver stripes.
It is very cold, the forlorn wind scarcely breathes, I loved to close my eyes a moment and think of the land outside. a long walk; short pier ? the sound of ocean, the rain drops , smelling the night breath full with grass scent ? how relaxing and quiet it was. Now I'm not remembering anything about those thoughts, just great well to go on in such way till I sleep ? I only felt the morning light scorching my face I woke up it was around 6 am, closed my window to sleep for another more 2 hours preparing to wake up to go for work.I couldn't write anything of that which was in my head that night, but it was all fine with me , although I didn't dream!
