Smoking cigars and cigarettes is one of the biggest social evil of our society that is particularly affecting our youth. What make people go for this? This can be due to peer pressure, relieving stress and frustration or may be for the sake of fun and enjoyment. But for me smoking cigars and cigarettes is the gateway to all other drugs that can cause addiction leading to deterioration of social, mental and physical health. Briefly I will put some light on the medical side effects of this evil. It s the leading cause of lung cancer and lung destruction. According to one survey this will be the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the upcoming years. Moreover, a large number of foreign exchange is spent every year to meet the requirements of drug addicts by importing cigarettes and cigars of various brands and quality.
