Smoking prevention

Smoking is a social problem for society, both for its smokers and non-smokers. For the first, the problem is to quit smoking, for the second, to avoid the influence of the smoking society and not to “become infected” by their habit, and also to preserve their health from smoking products, since the substances entering the smoke exhaled by smokers are not much safer than if a person smoked himself.

It's no secret how dangerous smoking is, however, around the world smokes about 15 billion cigarettes daily.

According to sociologists in Ukraine, 70% of men and 45% of women smoke. Now tobacco companies have found a second wind, having discovered for themselves an inexhaustible market in Eastern Europe. The sad fact is that most of their products are labeled "For export only", these cigarettes are banned for sale in Europe and the USA. The reason for this ban is the low quality of this product, the high content of resins and nicotine. Thus, we have become a market for second-rate products.

What are the very measures by which developed countries get rid of smoking.
First of all, this is a complete ban on tobacco advertising and the promotion of non-smoking. Of particular note is the package of measures of economic impact on smokers. In many firms and non-smokers, monthly bonuses are paid. Indeed, the smoker periodically breaks away from work to take the next dose of nicotine, his labor productivity decreases. For less productivity - less pay. This method has been recognized as the most effective.

As for smoking among adolescents, in this situation, an attractive factor is the desire to look like an adult.

To reduce smoking, you can apply many different measures: strict restriction of places for smoking, fines, the creation of a network of medical institutions specializing in the treatment of this type of problem, etc. Speaking of help to non-smokers, we can offer free treatment and spa holidays for people suffering from tobacco allergies and cigarette smoke products. But all this requires a review of both the economic and social policies of the state in which we live.
