Stop Smoking

Effects of cigarette smoking

I want to remember that nicotine in cigarettes has the potential to be addictive.

Smoking cigarettes:

  • may damage my heart

  • may be linked to cancer

  • has a stimulating and calming effect at the same time

  • reduces my appetite, which may keep me from eating nutritious meals
