It causes bad breath
Have you ever experience talking to someone who is outrageously attractive that you ended up falling for him or her at first sight? They’re attractive enough that they even completed your checklist for your dream partner. Then suddenly, you found out that their breath stinks? It’s such a waste right?
One of the main side effects of smoking is that it makes your breath stinks. This is because of the substances that smoking leaves in your mouth, throat and also your lungs every time you puff from your cigarette.
Since Nicotine is present in the production of cigarettes, it causes the blood vessels to slow down. Because of this, the distribution of different types of nutrients and vitamins in your body slows down too. And once this happens, it causes your skin to sag and wrinkle because of the lack of oxygen. You wouldn’t want that, would you?
Weak immune system
Are you aware of the fact that every time you smoke there are over 400 chemicals that you put into your body? Now that you know this, do you think that this amount of chemicals isn’t going to be harmful for your body? Each and every one of these chemicals is harmful. If you take them on a daily basis, there’s a huge possibility that you’re one step closer to a sickness. You might not only be a step closer to suffering from any kind of sickness but it also affects your immune system. You might not be able to feel it within a short amount of time but in the long run, you’ll feel your immune system weakens.
With all these, you just had an idea of how dangerous smoking is for you. It’s not only a simple bad habit. It’s a kind of bad habit that could result to an addiction. Once this became an addiction, you need to start taking action. It would even be better if you could start taking action when it’s still not an addiction. You wouldn’t want to stop when it’s already too late for you, right? While it’s still early, you could go to any recovery house near you and make sure to ask them the best addiction treatment that fits your situation.
