Although we are already aware of the many harms brought about by cigarette smoking to our health, many of us still continue with the habit. It has already led to millions of deaths of both men and women. Cigarette smoking accounts for 480,000 deaths per year, according to U.S. data. What’s more shocking is that 41,000 of these deaths are from secondhand smoke, and about 16 million of Americans are suffering from a disease caused by smoking.
Cigarette smoking is so addictive that it became a habit for people to puff a stick or more a day.
Cigarettes have some content that can ease out the stress, and this is probably why a lot of people resort to smoking in times of distress.

Smokers who claim to consume less than five sticks a day are not even safe from this deal. Smoking can increase blood pressure too and cause your heart to beat faster. So talk about having a heart attack.
But it can lead to deaths caused by other illnesses.
Cancer is, of course, a given. Lung cancer, mouth cancer, tongue cancer and cancer of the esophagus are the most common diseases associated with smoking, but cigarettes can cause more damage than you could imagine. Your bladder, blood, stomach, pancreas, kidneys, liver, and cervix among many others are seriously affected when you stay stubborn and continue to smoke.
