KILLING BY THE MINUTE

Smoking is worse than you think it is. Every time you take a puff from the end of that cigarette you inhale about 4,800 different chemicals - 69 of them can cause cancer. And the lead and plutonium in them makes your lungs very radioactive, so radioactive that smokers have earned the title of most radiation received in a year - about 160,000 microsieverts.

QUIT SMOKING BEFORE YOUR LIFE QUITS YOU

An average pack a day smoker will lose about 3 and a half hours of his/her life a day.

EmphysemaEmphysema is a disease usually caused by smoking. smoking gets air filled with chemicals into your lungs - coating them with a black substance. Not all goes outside though - when chemical filled air goes to the inside of your lungs it gets to the alveoli - making them weaker and weaker and then POP! they rupture making it harder and harder to breathe.

Lung CancerLung cancer is one of the most common diseases caused by smoking. symptoms include hard cough, wheezing and shortness of breath. Most people that get lung cancer die - very few are lucky enough to survive - and you would think that they would learn their lesson after that.
