In this day and time it is well known how damaging smoking is to our bodies in the long run, especially to cardiovascular or oncological diseases. However, the benefits of quitting smoking sometimes are not perceived as important enough to overcome nicotine addiction. Tobacco has immediate implications in our life. The skin becomes less shiny, and your smile starts to change colors. Even the stairs seem longer.
Even in sports, smoking improves the chances of injury and delays the recuperation period. And, after surgery, if the patient needs it, tobacco puts you in a worse situation because it delays scaring.
