I decided to do my own small test with cotton balls to determine the real effects of smoking a pack a day and what it does to your mouth, throat and lungs not to mention how it compromises every system in your body in order to try to tell you to stop smoking and stop slowly killing yourself.

The effects of smoking on your body is no secret and if you don’t know by now, here is another reason why you need to quit smoking. It can harm nearly every organ of the body. It causes nearly one of every five deaths in the United States each year.
It’s never to late to quit and once you see what a pack a day does to your lungs it will give you the fuel you need to fire up the will power and quit! Good luck on your journey to quit smoking. Remember, waiting another day could be too late.
Smoking can cause fatal diseases such as pneumonia, emphysema and lung cancer. Smoking causes 84% of deaths from lung cancer and 83% of deaths from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD.People with COPD have difficulties breathing, primarily due to the narrowing of their airways and destruction of lung tissue.
