Non-Smokers, avoid Second hand smoking, Beware of Smokers!!!

What Is Secondhand Smoke?

Secondhand smoke, also known as environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) or passive smoke, is a mixture of 2 forms of smoke from burning tobacco products:

  • Sidestream smoke: smoke that comes from the end of a lighted cigarette, pipe, or cigar
  • Mainstream smoke: smoke that is exhaled by a smoker
When non-smokers are exposed to secondhand smoke it is called involuntary smoking or passive smoking. Non-smokers exposed to secondhand smoke absorb nicotine and other toxic chemicals just like smokers do. The more secondhand smoke you are exposed to, the higher the level of these harmful chemicals in your body.

So, Smokers dont make harm to your friends and Non-smokers avoid standing near smokers when he smoke and if possible try to make your smoking friends to stop smoking..

Smokers, Please Stop smoking atleast when you are with your non-smoking friends. This is good for both of your health...
