The younger you start smoking the more damage you will do to your body as you get older which can lead to many health problems. Not only that, smoking has a really negative effect on your appearance and on your bank balance too.
"My friends are all smoking, I'm tempted to start too..."
If you smoke you can end up with bad breath, yellow fingers, rotting teeth, smelly clothes and hair, and develop wrinkles earlier. You can also get a ‘smoker’s cough’ and won’t be as physically fit as a non-smoker.
