How Do Cigarettes Effect You?
Not only you are wasting money, but you are wasting time, and affecting your health. Studies show that when you smoke, you loose 11 minutes of your life. There are various problems that happen to your health with cigarettes. Cigarettes have nicotine in them, which makes them so addictive. If you smoke, circulation decreases, which lowers blood flow to the brain. Blood flows in your brain, and without that, you could get a stroke and your other body parts won't work. Another thing than can happen is that the bronchi in your lungs swell up and cause major soreness in the chest, and heavy coughing. This is known as bronchitis. Would you like to carry around an oxygen tank all day, everywhere? Well, another cause of disease by cigarettes is emphysema, when your air sacs expand and loose their elasticity, which makes it hard for you to breathe. It's so severe, that the amount of oxygen is heavily decreased to breathe. That is the reason for an oxygen tank. Other diseases caused by cigarettes is atherosclerosis, where your arteries harden which leads up to a heart attack or stroke, and cancer, when your cells mutate and grow out of control. Your teeth also get affected; it can get cavities and turn brown, yellow and fall out. You can also get "hairy tongue," when the back of your tongue is hairy like and is a grayish-blackish sore. This also happens with leukoplakia, a disease with the mouth caused by smoking. There are many more problems than this!
