Reason #5 - Smoking Causes Yellow Teeth

If ever a picture said a thousand words, this is it. It's a proven fact that smoking will turn your teeth yellow over time.

What's worse, according to, "smoking increases the risk and severity of gum recession and gum disease leading to tooth and bone loss. Tooth loss in smokers occurs at a rate of 2.9 teeth every 10 years for men and 1.5 teeth every 10 years for women (two times the rate of tooth loss in nonsmokers).

If you start smoking at age 18 and smoke a pack a day,
you could lose four to five teeth by the time you are 35!"

So, go ahead, puff away. I'm sure the gap teeth/missing teeth/yellow teeth look will come back into style some day...

Reason #3: It's A Huge Waste Of Money

The other day, I was talking to a friend of mine who smokes. He said he's going to have to quit because he can't afford it. He's up to two packs a day, which he says is about $6.00 a day. That's $42 a week on cigarettes. For something that doesn't have any positive effects and a boatload of negative effects on the body, I think I'd save that $40 a week and put it in savings. But hey, that's just me.

Reason #2: Smokers Litter

I don't know about you, but I can't stand it when I pull up to a busy intersection, and the roadside looks like a big ashtray. The misconception that smokers have is that cigarette butts will decompose and won't harm the environment. Wrong! Read this article to find out why...

If you must smoke, put your butts in the ashtray not on the ground. Thanks!

<== Does this look good to anyone?

Reason #1: Smokers Stink

Their clothes stink. Their breath stinks. Their skin stinks. Their hair stinks. Their house stinks. Their car stinks. Their fingers stink. And, worst of all, they don't even know it.

Solution: Stop Smoking! You'll smell better.
