Strangely enough, the most effective for thisThe moment prevention of smoking is a fashion, and she now dictates a healthy lifestyle. The romantic flair of cigarettes is no longer so tainted with immature minds, so the power of tobacco from this point of view is weakening every day. If before it was fashionable to smoke, and over non-smokers chuckled, now the situation has changed to the exact opposite. Unfortunately, it is impossible to attribute this merit to the state or public organizations, the creation of a negative image of a smoker did not justify itself.
Usually smoking prevention in the school is built ondescription of the negative consequences of addiction to tobacco. The list of diseases, symptoms, and all this is crowned with appeals not to smoke, not even to try, and if you tried it - it's urgent to throw. However, if we consider the problem of smoking in adolescents, it becomes clear - they do not intimidate the consequences, because they do not believe that the cigarette becomes their companion for many years. Why is this happening?
Obsolete prevention of smoking among young peoplehas never been effective, because it is based on providing the entire volume of information on the health status of smokers, both active and passive. Few of the teenagers are interested in health, which will become relevant in the boundless future. In addition, the illusion of a lack of habit lies in the fact that in fact, tobacco smoke does not cause any pleasant sensations. He does not have a pleasant taste or smell, does not embellish reality, as alcohol does, does not remove any moral barriers. However, the nicotine contained in tobacco smoke is a drug that makes you continue to smoke.
In many respects, smoking prevention iswork with the socialization of adolescents, because it is the attempt to become more socially adapted pushes them to a bad habit. The unconscious tendency to imitate makes teenagers adopt the habits of the social group to which they want to be involved, and if this group is made to smoke, the probability of the first cigarette is approaching a hundred percent. However, independent prevention of smoking, an abstract on a given topic, practical work or even research gives good results. Probably, research not only social or biological direction, but also economic. Many adolescents after independent work seriously thought about the inexpediency of smoking.
It is extremely important to understand that cigarettes, cigarillos,cigars, hookah, pipe and any other method of extraction and consumption of nicotine - this is the same habit, simply dressed in another form. Prevention of smoking implies a complete rejection of tobacco at the level of internal belief, in this case it can be considered that prevention has borne fruit, and the person is in fact protected from the negative consequences that could be acquired. It is noticed that just knowing the consequences practically does not affect smokers, on each pack in large print these negative consequences were written, but since at least one inscription became the reason for refusal of tobacco?
Refusing to smoke, we save time, energy,health and money. Perhaps it is difficult to come up with a more profitable enterprise than a complete cessation of smoking in any form. If we take into account that the prices for cigarettes are steadily growing, then we can deduce an approximate average annual amount of expenses for a purposeful and systematic deterioration of one's own health. The vast majority of former smokers note that they are happier and more secure - they stop spending on cigarettes and on concomitant medications designed to alleviate the problems arising from smoking.
