Your skin will age prematurely causing wrinkles, dull eyes and complexion. Cigarette smoke can also make your mouth and clothes smell.
When you smoke, it's not just your health that is at risk, but the health of anyone around you who breathes in cigarette smoke including pets.
Breathing in this secondary smoke is known as passive smoking, or secondary smoking. Children are at particular risk from the effects of passive smoking and are at an increased risk of developing chest infections, ear infections and asthma.
Babies who are exposed to cigarette smoke are also at a greater risk of sudden infant death syndrome (also known as cot death).
