All these risks, lead to fatality later in life. A stick of cigarette is equivalent to 8 minutes of your life that you lose each time you smoke.

It’s true that smoking somehow gives temporary relief, but then again it’s only temporary. Smoking is never good for you. Live your life to the fullest by being sound in mind, soul, and body. QUIT SMOKING NOW, before it’s too late.
