Simon Cowell Begins Addiction Treatment
Famous music mogul, most popular in America as a judge on American Idol, Simon Cowell has started treatment for his addiction to cigarettes. It’s been reported that he smokes more than 15 cigarettes per day and his family and friends have strongly encouraged him to seek some treatment. Cowell has admitted that he has been smoking cigarettes since the age of eight, and he is now seeking help at a top London treatment facility. Some facts that have been revealed about Cowell’s family history may have swayed him towards seeking treatment. It’s been reported that his grandfather was a heavy smoker who died of lung cancer, and his father suffered a heart attack, so maybe the light bulb finally turned on for Cowell.
There is infinite and unquestioned scientific evidence that smoking cigarettes or any kind of nicotine elevates your risk of lung cancer and many other unhealthy diseases. It can be difficult for some people in the baby boomer generation to kick the bad habit of smoking cigarettes, because for them, growing up smoking cigarettes was an accepted part of the culture. It’s a lot different in today’s society given the research on the effects of cigarettes on the smoker’s body, second hand smoker’s body, and the environment. People are a lot more conscious of the harms of cigarettes today, but nicotine addiction is still a huge issue in society today. Thankfully, given the progress of technology, there are much more effective treatments for quitting smoking, but the smoker has to genuinely want to quit—like Simon Cowell has decided to.
