How Smoking & Drinking Affect Your Health

Growing up children view smoking and drinking as adult privileges, therefore, making them seem like “cool” activities. It’s important to create public awareness of the negative effects of alcohol and tobacco as they are among the top causes of preventable death in the United States. That’s why we’re going to break down the effects of smoking and drinking on your health and why you should quit, or at least moderate consumption.

Health Risks Associated With Alcohol And Tobacco

Dangers Of Heavy Drinking

When going out, most people choose to have one or two drinks whether it’s wine or beer. Light drinking is acceptable and may even have some minor health benefits. However, heavy drinking or binge drinking can lead to serious medical problems. For women, having more than 7 drinks a week is considered excessive drinking, and for men, that number is 15.

In the long term, heavy alcohol consumption leads to high blood pressure, gastric problems, liver cancer, pancreatitis, memory impairment, alcohol dependency, and a plethora of other psychological conditions. It’s also important to keep in mind that minors, pregnant women, patients on medication, or anyone who intends to drive should avoid alcohol consumption at all costs. By avoiding or limiting the amount you drink, you are avoiding potential health complications in the future.

Dangers Of Smoking

Unlike alcohol, any amount or form of smoking is negative to your health. Cigarettes contain over 4,000 chemical compounds and over 400 toxic chemicals including tar, carbon monoxide, arsenic, and ammonia. That’s not to mention the most addicting aspect of cigarettes, nicotine.  The nicotine in cigarettes is a highly addictive substance that can cause users to have physical and mental withdrawals. 

There are so many risks and diseases associated with smoking it’s difficult to decide where to begin. Besides being notorious for lung cancer, excessive smoking can also lead to leukemia, cancers of the throat/mouth, chronic bronchitis, raised blood pressure, and stroke. This should clearly highlight the importance of limiting smoking in our lives for optimal health.

Benefits Of Quitting

Although it’s easier said than done, quitting smoking and drinking can improve your quality of life physically, emotionally, and financially. People who quit usually feel more energetic and have an improved sense of taste and smell. Also, those who stop smoking and drinking see improved, younger-looking skin as well as improved fertility. Relying on any substance is bad for mental health, but alcohol and tobacco are also detrimental to your body’s well-being.
