Social Consquences of Tobacco Use
Over 42 million Americans smoke cigarettes on a daily basis. And every single one of them suffer from these social consequences.
Smoking causes teeth to yellow. Having yellow teeth makes a person look older and is unattractive to others. It can become very expensive to go and get your teeth whitened after the damage of smoking. Also, it can cause your skin and fingernails to yellow as well
Smoking will also cause you to have very bad smelling breath. People may not want to get very close to a smoker, and no one wants to kiss someone who has had a cigarette in their mouth.
Almost everyone gets wrinkles around the age of 60 or 70, but adult smokers in their 20s can develop wrinkles as early as in their 30s. And teen smokers can have wrinkles when they are in their late 20s. Wrinkles at that young of an age can make you seem much older than you appear.
The Financial Cost of Smoking
Not only does smoking have a physical effect on your body and appearance, it has a very expensive price. In Texas, the cost of one pack of cigarettes is $6.07. If you smoke one pack every day, at the end of the week you have spent $42.49 on cigarettes alone. After a year of this habit, you've spent $2209.48.
