El smoke It is a habit that is harmful to health but it also has a negative impact on the the environment.
Tobacco produces atmospheric pollution, deforestation, climate change, waste generation and forest fires.
Today in most cities there are restrictions on smoking in closed spaces so smokers go outside and produce gas emission and toxic pollutants to the atmosphere.
Each year it is estimated that around 4,5 trillion butts or cigarettes are generated in the world. These cigarette butts take 25 years to decompose in the environment.
The most important components of the cigarette are tar and nicotine can contaminate up to 50 liters of water in addition to killing fish, birds and animals that come in contact with this residue.
In addition, a large amount of paper is used to make cigarettes and packages.
The variety of forest fires They tend to be produced in a large proportion by duller cigarette butts. But it also favors deforestation since forests are cut down to grow tobacco due to the great demand for this product in the market.
In conclusion, it not only damages the health of the smoker, of the people around him, but also generates or intensifies global environmental problems.
Smoking is not an innocent private act that only affects whoever does it, but its ecological consequences extend and with so many people who do it, there are already millions of people who smoke every day.
If we are interested in caring for the environment and collaborating in improving the quality of life on the planet, we must stop smoking.
The tobacco industry is one of the most important in the world and the ones that lobby the most in different places so that tobacco consumption is not restricted, but they are profiting from people's health and also worsening environmental problems.
It is difficult to quit smoking but you can try to do so not only for our health and quality of life but also to take care of the environment.

It is impressive how many addicts do not give a damn about my environment since they are transformed and manipulated, they do not care if it harms the other if it generates environmental smoke, nothing and the worst if one is uninformed it does not matter and they take advantage of polluting addicts to toxic poison you have to prohibit and undo
Everything is in the consciousness of each human… .. But obviously it's like trying to give up fast food. This is something that is everywhere and invades the Subconscious of humans.
