Learn How Smoking Could Be Affecting Your Social Life

While smoking may appear to be a socially acceptable trend on college campuses, it still brings with it serious health problems. The growing use of vapes and e-cigarettes are only contributing to the negative health consequences that smokers face. The consequences can be affecting your social life in ways you may not realize. The biggest affect is secondhand smoke. The people around a person smoking are involunatarily inhaling smoke and toxins from cigarettes. Secondhand smoke is toxic and has been proven to lead to many health problems.  

Some of these health problems are:                 

  • Greater risk of respiratory infections such as bronchitis or pneumonia
  • More frequent and/or severe asthma attacks
  • Heart disease
  • Risk of heart attack
  • Increased risk of smoke
  • Lung cancer

Many people avoid being around smokers because of these side effects. Quitting would help not only your own health but the health of those around you, and would improve your social health.
