  • Smoking worsens asthma and counteracts asthma medication by worsening the inflammation of the airways that the medicine tries to ease.
  • The blood vessels in the eye are sensitive and can be easily damaged by smoke, causing a bloodshot appearance and itchiness.
  • Heavy smokers are twice as likely to get macular degeneration, resulting in the gradual loss of eyesight.
  • Smokers run an increased risk of cataracts.
  • Smokers take 25% more ‘sick days’ per year than non-smokers.
  • Smoking stains your teeth and gums.
  • Smoking increases your risk of periodontal disease, which causes swollen gums, bad breath and teeth to fall out.
  • Smoking causes an acid taste in the mouth and contributes to the development of ulcers.
  • Smoking also affects your looks: smokers have paler skin and more wrinkles. This is because smoking reduces the blood supply to the skin and lowers levels of vitamin A.
