The aftermath

The smokers of yesterday

Smoking used to be cool, the thing, little did these smokers know about the cancers and lung problems that we know about today. Those smokers now have amputated hands, feet, fingers and toes. They also have cancer in their esophagus so they have a hole in their neck, and whenever they cough, they cough up black gunk from their lungs. They also have a shorter lifespan than most people, they lose about ten years, and they can never breath normally again .
