How is smoking bad for your health?Health & Fitness Lungs
How is smoking bad? I've been smoking for 2 years now and am perfectly healthy. I can stop anytime and never get withdrawals. My grandfather smoked cigarettes from 13 till he died of natural causes when he was 92. My dad smoked too but quit when he was 30 because he didn't want to spend on cigarettes.
There are many reasons that smoking is detrimental to health, including an increased risk of lung cancer, increased risk of thrombosis (clots) in the heart and legs and unfortunately, for most is additive.
It also increases the risk of developing chronic airways diseases.
There maybe others out there who are might be like you and your grandfather, but for most people, smoking is an unhealthy and damaging activity.
