When your kith and kin's are exposed to passive smoking, they come under doses of toxicity
caused by the burning cigar and its harmful contents.

Passive smokers as well as the growing children of smokers are more susceptible to have
respiratory diseases including infections affecting its constituting organs.

Adults exposed to passive smoking are more likely to develop cardiac ailments and those
affecting the circulatory system.

Chances of lung cancer, asthma, common cough and cold are likely to influence smoker's
family more than that of his/hers non- smoking counterparts.

It has also been observed that children of smokers are more likely to follow the parental
footsteps in respect of this addictive habit.

To go by a study, children of smokers are thrice more likely to embark upon the injurious
habit of smoking.

Besides following the exemplary guidance, involuntary & prolonged exposure to highly
addictive nicotine also has its role to offer.

Psychological effect of smoking on family members

You may be tempted to inhale cigarette's addictive fervor with an eye on mood elevation, but
in the long run there are studies to vouch for its depressive effect, with nicotine leaving
depressant impression on neurons.

Similar effects are bound to affect your family members and those exposed to prolonged
bouts of passive smoking.

Family members in general and growing children in particular have come under the
baneful effects of smoking, with kids of smokers being more vulnerable to emotional
disturbance than their non-smoking healthier counterparts.

In fact, there are studies to confirm the glaring fact that children of smoking parents are likely
to embark upon smoking as a necessary panacea from stress, strain and boredom.

In fact, children of smokers growing up with smoking as one of their passive companions
become surprisingly tolerant towards this injurious habit- and its long term malefic.

With smokers wasting precious time on gleeful bouts of smoking, they tend to care little for
children and spouse- time which could have been spent profitably in company of spouse or
children are spent in intoxicating seclusion.

There are times when smokers seclude themselves from friends, spouse and children to

repercussion on health of near and dear ones, the deathly habit of smoking is ultimately leading
you away from prosperity.

exposing your children and spouse to greater financial and psychological hazards.

painting would have strengthened familial bonds.

With smoking having its direct repercussion on your longevity, you are cheating both your
spouse and children of life and longevity.

butt may give rise to a disastrous fire.

another ill effect of smoking.
