I know it sounds like a stupid question but I was wondering. I'm a 19 year old lad who has recently started smoking again. I don't really want to quit completely because I love smoking but I know it's bad for my health and wallet. If I smoked just 1 or 2 cigarettes a day would I still be damaging my health in the same way I would be if I smoked 20 a day ?
Yeah, how long will "1 or 2 a day" last though. Soon you'll be saying "10 a day won't hurt, will it?" then "40 a day won't hurt, will it?", and then you'll be dead.
I don't know if you have heard this, but they do say that cigarettes are extremely addictive.
I smoke 1 or 2 a day and I'll be disappointed if I don't live til at least 60.
it's like saying "i only punch my head twice a day... is that seriously going to give me brain damage ?"
well the answer is yes.
Every cigarette you smoke is harmful. There's a strong correlation between smoking and coronary heart diseases. If you are a long-term smoker, on average, your life expectancy is about 10 years less than a non-smoker. Put another way, in the UK about 8 in 10 non-smokers live past the age of 70, but only about half of long-term smokers live past 70. The younger you are when you start smoking, the more likely you are to smoke for longer and to die early from smoking.
Yes its bad for you, though obviously not as bad as if you smoked more.
as cole slaw said though, how long will it stay at just one or two a day.
Only fools smoke cigarettes, no will power at all.
