How alcohol and smoking in teenagers became an addiction?
Alcohol and smoking in teeenagers became an addiction when they consume alcohol and cigarettes and every time with more frequency and you lost the control of when to consume, so the bosy starts asking more of the same substance, so that way the body can live without the substance becoming an addiction that has to be treated.
There are different types of causes for alcohol and smoking in teenagers. The causes are, help losing weight, health consequences seem far off, peer presssure.
The first cause I will mention is help losing weight. This is when you start smoking or drinking and it helps you to lose a few pounds.
The next cause es called health conswquences semm far off. It´s when a teenagers smokes and he/sahe says that at 18 or more it is going to be healthier.
Another importan cause is peer pressure, teenagers fell presssured by their friends to drink or smoke because they have low self esteem, are experiencing family problems such as divorce alcoholism, drugaddiction, and unemployment. They came from families where thereis little support or communication, they think tha if they don´t do what the group says they get lost, they don´t care about school, they feel afraid if they are not valued bu the group. Thats why if they fell pressured by their friends they will drink or smoke. Many as 4,000 teenagers try tobacco every day. Most adults who smoke now started as teenagers. It´s importan to know that most teens get their first cigarette from friends.
The physical effects are bad function of the heart, liver damage, infections, anemia, brittle bones, cirrhosis and death. Also can stop the growth of the body and vital organs, damage your teeth. The mental effects are depression. The emotional effects are the depression and the anxiety.
The cigarettes is made of 4,000 toxins and things and 43 of them give you cancer to your body when you smoke you are killing yourself and all the people around you.necotine is one of the most addictive things of the cigarettes and it reach your brain in only six seconds. When you smoke the tar in your lungs increases and it stay there for life. The cigarettes affects your pulmons, hearts, brain, blood vessels, hormons etc.
Causes and effects of smoking and drinking in teenagers
Now teenagers begin drinking and smoking much younger than long ago.
The causes can be many and different depending on each person but
The most common are:
Publicity, that is all over the city, on tv, radio, movies and advertisements where pretty young people appear having a nice time because they are drinking and smoking.
Another cause is the imitation that young people always practice as a way of feeling older and more attractive. Imitations have to do with a teenager behavior
And if it is not guided, it can bring problems to young people.
The group of friends is very important for adolescents and in groups there is at least one boy or girl who has tasted beer or cigarette. If a member of a group wants to keep on with the friends, he will probably drink or smoke when he is in group. The peer pressure is very strong and it can be dangerous.
An important cause is the family if parents drink and smoke probably children will do it some time. When teenagers meet in parties (raves), parents always know were they are and who are the friends with them. Also when they come back from the party they should see them and talk to them and if they look drunk or smell to cigarettes, the parents should talk to them and not leave them alone because they will be on trouble.
There are many kinds of effects after drinking and smoking. The most important is health because cigarettes affect the mouth, lungs and throat etc.As our doe- sent need tobacco as the way it needs food,Water,sleep and exercise cigarettes
Bring poison that can kill us. If someone began to smoke or drink when he was young he will create a habit and smoking and drinking are hard habits to break because they are addictive.
People who drink have a bad health and bring problems to their family. Friends
Don’t like a drunk and finally he stays alone.
Cigarettes and alcohol cause bad breath and bad smelling on cloth and hair. If someone drinks a lot he will readuce his athletic performance. If a teenager drinks a lot he will lose his brain and probably become agresive and involvet in fights. Young people are not good students if they drink and there future may be in danger.
Teens that drink are more likely to have sexual activity, have unprotected sex
Or have sex with strangers. Excess of alcohol can be the cause of emotional problems and bring the depression.
They use of cigarettes and alcohol lead to the use o other drugs like extasis, marijuana, cocaine and heroin.
Who is responsible of these effects of health of school teenagers, physical, mental and emotional?
Effects that drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes bring to young people, we must tell that there are not only one.
There are many responsibilities of why teenagers drink and smoke cigarettes. They are: publicity, new kind of life, family and friends. Also, because there are no enough campaigns that tell them not to drink or smoke.
The most important of all the responsibilities is the responsibility of advertisements. We can see nice pictures of young and beautiful boys and girls smoking and drinking in the beach or in parties having fun and drinking. When teenagers see this, they want to be like them so they begin to drink and smoke. There are advertisements in packages of cigarettes and others asking not to drink but they are presented in the last years, so there are lots of teenagers smoking and drinking a lot. People can not smoke in any place as offices or restaurants or in the movies. This is good because people will leave smoking. There are also photographs of how bad people are after smoking and telling that smoking produces cancer.
The way people live in their homes now is also responsible of why teenagers smoke and drink. Mothers work a lot out of their homes and are not at home as they were years ago and the children are alone at home so, they watch a lot of television and see the publicity and then imitate them. And if they do not a mother to tell not to do that, they will begin to drink and smoke. Many teenagers go to parties and come back very late when their parents can’t see if they are drunk or not..
There are some families where the parents smoke and drink and children see them and think it is normal to do that. So, when they grow up, they begin to do that and drinking and smoking a lot will be bad for their health and they will be used to do that.
For teenagers, friends are very important and they do not want to be different, so they begin imitating what their friends do and little by little they get used to drink and smoke when they are together or when they go to parties.
Only a few years ago, there are campaigns telling how bad for our health is smoking but they are recent. There must be more and more and begin in schools with very young students so that they can get into their minds the idea of being responsible for their health since they are very young. There are not so many campaigns for not drinking. There are some that tell young people to choose one person of the group for not drinking if they are going out, but these campaigns are made only to stop accidents because there are many people that die in accidents. There are not campaigns telling people how bad for our health it is the habit of drinking.
Concluding, I must say that all of us are responsible if we do not make something about the problem of teenagers drinking and smoking.
How can we present teenagers drink and smoke in teenagers at early ages?
We all know that if we learn much better when we are young children.
So, if “Nidos” and schools prepare together and plan for making campaigns, probably they will stop many teenagers from smoking and drinking. But success will be better if they show images of how our lungs get if we smoke or what happens in our brain when we drink a lot.
But these campaigns will have to be with all the people in all the society because advertisers, parents, teachers and all groups of people should do something because we will be teenagers and have brothers and sisters and we don’t want somebody doing this at home. Publicity is watched all the day and easily gets into the children brain and if good advertisements are made for children protecting their health, they will know that smoking and drinking is not good.
Another way of preparing young children for not drinking when they grow up could be to show accidents and how bad people look on the streets or into their cars only because they were drinking alcohol before they drove the car. But this campaign could be confuse and seem to be only for not driving after drinking. But, it doesn’t matter, something will stay in the children’s minds and soon they will remember and think about the ugly photographs they saw when they were small kids.
To make projects in school about how good for us id to be healthy can also be very good to fight against smoking and drinking. Investigate with groups to find out about these habits and how they affect their health will be good idea.
If schools bring doctors and psychologists to talk the students about how good it is for us not getting habits that make us bad, would be good for students.
The conversation with people that used to smoke but left it or people that used to drink could be very good to young children because they can ask those people how they felt or how they began to drink and smoke.
It is very important to try everything that we can to stop young students from smoking cigarettes or drinking alcohol and if most of young people stop doing this they will talk about it to their families and more people will know about how bad these habits are for them.
In these campaigns school can not be alone because it is a problem for everybody. Television, magazines and radio and the President too and in the Congress they must think how to protect the teenagers. In the electronic games in the internet and in Play Station could appear some words telling about not to smoke and drink and surely they will be very good for young people.

The half of smokers will die for smoking.
Tobacco smoke can cause cancer, the same as smoking each cigarette increases your heart rate and blood pressure, straining your heart and blood vessels, causing heart attack, stroke and it can cut out oxygen from your hands and feet. Emphysema is an illness that rots your lungs. Lung cancer is cause by the tar in tobacco smoke. Heart attack can also be caused by blocking blood vessels which is caused by smoking.
Almost every system in the body can be affected by drinking alcohol.
Alcohol kills neurons, once you lost them you’d never get them back. When alcohol is consumed it stays is the blood vessels of all the body. One of the most damaged organs is the liver witch stops working with the job of making alcohol not harmful for the body but it can only handle 20 and 30 grams of alcohol per hour.
In the brain it can cause degeneration and atrophy in blood it can cause anemia and decrease of the defenses the heart can suffer cancer alterations and in the intestine bad absorption of vitamins.
Peer pressure is a very strong reason for why so many teenagers drink and smoke but here are more:
Peer pressure is then they press their friends and they convince them that alcohol and smoking is cool. They call them names and treat them as if alcohol and smoking was good for health, the bad thing is that many times, they convince them and then can’t stop the habit.
Some of teen agers just try them and at the moment they become addictive to it and can’t leave Some of parents are alcoholic or smoke too much so their son think its correct and he tries drinking and smoking.

Alcohol andSmoking inSchool Teenagers
Do you know more than the 55% of teenagers drink and smoke? Do you know that smoking causes heart? Do you know that alcohol causes liver disease?
It is not a community problem if a teenager drinks or smokes, it’s their decision, that is why they can’t solve this problem of teenagers drinking and smoking.
The half of smokers will die for smoking tobacco smoke can cause cancer, the same as smoking:
Each cigarette increases your heart rate and blood pressure, straining your heart and blood vessels, causing heart attack, stroke, and it can cut out oxygen from your hands and feet.

Peer pressure is a very strong reason for why many teenagers drink and smoke but here are more:
Peer pressure is when they press their friends and they convince them that alcohol and smoking is cool and good for them, because it is a way to feel powerful somehow or to not feel so bad of what they’re doing some of teenagers just try them and at the moment they become addictive to it and can’t leave it.
Some of parents are alcoholic or smoke too much so their son or daughter think its correct and he or she tries drinking and smoking which is not correct in teenagers.
Some people don’t know what are the risks for doing that and they try it because they’re ignorant some people think it’s cool and just try it.
The advertisements that they watch on TV, also makes then want to drink and smoke because in T.V. it looks like a good thing.
Most of the teenagers start drinking and /or smoking at the ages of 13 and 14, that means that stores do sell them beers and /or drinking .But that problem can be solved by put it in writing: write down all the reasons why they want to quit it. And get support to do it: ask friends and family for help and set a quit date: pick up a date that you’re not going to drink and/or smoke.
So that is why all this problem is happening: teenagers drinking and smoking anywhere and that can cause many diseases.
