Years ago we used to be exposed to shiny magazine ads and what appeared to be glamorous people smoking on TV. Smoking was portrayed as being cool and if you did it you would be cool too. It is interesting to find out that studies done over the years show that people who smoke are thought of as being less intelligent than those that don’t.
No one is immune to the effects of smoking. Once you start down that road you may find yourself addicted in a short period of time to only look in the mirror someday and wonder why you look so terrible, why your teeth are loose and falling out, or why you can’t do the things you used to do.
Smoking is not glamorous! Eventually the poisons you are putting in your body day after day will catch up with you and you’ll regret the decision you made to start smoking. It may be too late for you to stop or it might not be. But if you do stop smoking you are at least no longer exposing yourself to the toxins and luckily your body will begin to repair itself so the sooner you quit the better.
