Every year hundreds of thousands of people around the world die from diseases caused by smoking.Tobacco smoke also contributes to a number of cancers.
The mixture of nicotine and carbon monoxide in each cigarette you smoke temporarily increases your heart rate and blood pressure and also clogs your blood vessels and arteries causing heart attacks. It slows your blood flow, cutting off oxygen to your feet and hands. It causes pain in the chest very frequently to those who smoke regularly.
We have heard of humans being so addicted to smoke that they can’t wake up or go back to sleep without a cigarette. But here is a new generation dog who is so habitual of smoking that he cannot do without a cigarette.
This two year old named Meiya is a Husky in Anda , Heilongjiang province in China and has picked up his master Liu’s habit of smoking since last year when he was adopted.
Liu , says that Meiya has always been showing interest and enjoyment with the smoke around and cannot sleep without a cigarette. Meiya is particularly interested in Luxi cigarettes which is favoured by his master.
