As a pianist, a bass guitarist, and a drummer for fifteen years, I always say that there are better melodies that have not been heard yet. I believe that heard melodies are sweet but the unheard ones will be sweeter. Smoking, a global concern with many health consequences had been discussed all over the world several times through different media, but all had not been said about it.

Smoke is the collection of airborne solid and liquid particulates and gases emitted when a material undergoes combustion or pyrolysis, together with the quantity of air that is entrained or otherwise mixed into the mass. Smoking is act or a process where a substance, most commonly is burned and the smoke tasted or inhaled. It is believed that smoking dates back to as early as 5000 BC in Shamanistic rituals (shamanism comprises a range of traditional beliefs and practices concerned with communication with the spiritual world). It is also believed that some ancient civilizations, such as the Babylonians, Indians, and Chinese, burnt incense as a part of religious rituals, as did the Israelites and the later Catholic and Orthodox Christian churches.

Smoking: one sure way to shorten life, smoking can cause or increase the chances of:

o Developing lung cancer (nine times higher than in non-smokers);

o Suffering a heart attack (twice as high among those who smoke a pack or more a day);

o Suffering low back pain (smokers are at greater risks);

o Developing emphysema (usually a direct result of smoking);

o Reducing birth weight (particularly heavy smoking can affect the fetus);

o Increasing circulatory ailments (smoking is a serious risk for those suffering from heart or circulatory disorders; it will raise blood pressure, narrow the blood vessels of the legs, fingers, and toes, and is a direct cause of intermittent claudication [pain on walking from narrow blood vessels] and gangrene of the leg).

How to stop smoking: one sure way to prolong or extend your life. In other to solve a problem, the source of the problem must be identified. The following tips help in stopping smoking;

1. Why am I smoking? List the reasons. Be cold-blooded or sincere about it. Write all down on paper.

2. If one of the reasons is that it gives you handling satisfaction by keeping your hands busy, use a fake cigarette (there are several on the market which look like lighted cigarettes)

3. If one of the reasons that it's possibly a habit and admittedly you often put a cigarette in your mouth without thinking, keep a card inside the cellophane of the pack and tick of every cigarette you smoke. You won't stop smoking entirely, but you will assuredly cut down on the number.

4. If your reason for smoking is that you are afraid of gaining weight on stopping, don't worry about that. After you have stopped smoking you can easily tackle the weight problem.

5. If another reason is that you need a cigarette in times or moments of stress or tension, try physical exercises like jogging or swimming- any very active sports will reduce mental tension far better than smoking.

6. Another reason may be that you believe you are addicted, bear in mind that not every cigarette you put in your mouth is carved one.

If you fail after observing these methods of stopping smoking, you will require a professional assistance because many smokers have been assisted by hypnosis or by psychiatric consultation, and many have kicked the habit through group therapy with other addicted smokers. Bear in mind that to stop a habit requires a personal effort and everyone who puts in an effort overcomes and dangerous or ill-health habits. Those who are serious about giving up smoking usually find some way to accomplish their goals.

Why don't you give it a try now.
