- Smoking From All Sides -
The Pros and Cons Presented

An examination of smoking from all sides requires that both the pros and cons be presented.

This is the best way to analyze all the cigarette smoking facts and make an informed decision about quitting or even about starting.

Tired of all the "smoking is bad for you" facts?

Counter that by reading the contributions from readers about the advantages and make your own contribution.

Pros and Cons
Arguments For and Against

Looking at pros and cons means examining both the positive and negative facts.

Pros would be the benefits or the facts that show a real benefit to you and your wellbeing that results from your own use of tobacco or cigarettes.

The facts about the many health risks and reasons why smoking is bad for you would be the cons.

Cigarette Smoking Facts - The Cons

When examining smoking from all sides we will first look at the "cons" or the negative facts and arguments "against".

There is probably no other human activity that has been researched as extensively as cigarette smoking. The fact that smoking is bad for you is supported by evidence contained in countless numbers of books, journals, research notes, and reports.

This evidence shows that there are many harmful effects on the body that can range from premature wrinkling and aging of the skin to very serious and mostly fatal diseases such as lung cancer and cancer of the pancreas.

And then there are the effects on the family. Not only is smoking bad for you, but your influence on your family and children is profound and most often negative.

Second hand smoke affects the health of many children and has been shown to be a risk factor for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Your behaviour within the family unit will influence your child's acceptance of the use of cigarettes as a normal behaviour in adult life. They are more likely to grow up to become a smoker themselves if they grwo up with parents who are smokers.

There are so many negative cigarette smoking facts that they cannot be listed on a single page. In fact it takes an entire website (and then some) to showcase all that information!

The Pros

This part of the website is about presenting the facts about smoking from all sides, so I have scoured the books, journals, and research reports to present here the benefits of smoking.

This box presents the sum total of all the evidence found to date:

Notice anything? I could not find a single piece of evidence about any benefits.

But just because I could not find it does not mean that there are none.

I want to present the facts about smoking from all sides, so if you have some positive facts to contribute to the site please do so!

If you have some evidence about the positive effects of cigarette smoking share them here.

I have only one rule for your contribution and that is that you must contribute facts NOT fiction.

It is obvious that when they wrote these lyrics, Jerome Kearn and Otto Harbach thought that the benefit of having as cigarette hanging out of your mouth was so that you could deny you were crying and blame your tears on the irritation of the cigarette smoke. Now how could something that makes your eyes sting and tear be beneficial for you?

"Now laughing friends deride
Tears I can not hide
Oh, so I smile and say
When a lovely flame dies
Smoke gets in your eyes
Smoke gets in your eyes"
