What can smoking do to your body?
Smoking cigarettes immediately raises your blood pressure. Smoking and tobacco use causes narrowing and blockages of your blood vessels, which can contribute to a heart attack or stroke.
In addition, tobacco use can harm other organs and increase your risk for cancer.
The effect of e-cigarettes on blood pressure is still being studied.
How to Quit
Quitting smoking is one of the best decisions you can make for your health.
Also, avoid being around others that smoke. Exposure to smoke from others (secondhand smoke) can also damage your body.
