In Australia 15,000 deaths per year are caused by regularlong-term tobacco smoking. Some of the diseasescaused by smoking include lung cancer, bronchitis, heartdisease and stroke.

Smoking kills more people in Australia than all thepeople killed by alcohol, other drugs, murder, suicide,road crashes, rail crashes, air crashes, poisoning,drowning, fires, falls, lightning, electrocution, snakes,spiders and sharks.

Nicotine is the addictive drug in tobacco. New smokersoften feel dizzy and sick from tobacco smoke, but someget used to its effects. As they continue to smoke, theirbodies learn to depend on nicotine and they can toleratesmoking more and more.

Many organisations are made to try and help people to quit but when smokers stop they mayget cravings and feel anxious, hungry, irritable andfind it hard to focus on what they are doing. Social andemotional factors also contribute to someone becomingaddicted to smoking. For example, people may feel theyneed to smoke when they are at a party, when they arewith certain friends or feeling stressed or bored.

cancer (in the lung, lip, tongue, mouth, throat, nose, nasal sinus, voice box, oesophagus, pancreas, stomach, kidney, bladder, ureter, cervix, and bone marrow),heart disease, stroke,emphysema,asthma, blindness,

Some of the diseases caused by smoking include:

•A 2004 Study by the CDC's National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion found that cigarette smoke contains over 4,800 chemicals, 69 of which are known to cause cancer.

For every person that dies from a smoking related disease, there are 20 more who suffer from at least one serious illness associated with smoking.

The CDC estimates that adult male smokers lose an average of 13.2 years of life and female smokers lose 14.5 years of life because of smoking, and given the diseases that smoking can cause, it can steal your quality of life long before you die.
