    OK!!!!


    I'm cutting down at least..........I look slightly better.....I think???

    yes. it causes premature wrinkles.

    Yea, eye bags, premature wrinkles, yellow teeth, bad breath. The works....

    indeed  why do you think volcanos have craters ..

    I've got great skin (now watch me get a pimple....) and I'm a heavy smoker. I have smoker's lines but that doesn't count for complexion......

    I believe so, I gave up for a time and was astonished by comments on how good I looked, people commented on me losing a "grey, sallow" color and having a healthy "glow" (I have since started smoking again...ugh)

    Well i  weigh nearly 28stone,and my skin is like a babys bum,

    The skin is affected by tobacco smoke in at least two ways. Firstly, tobacco smoke
    released into the environment has a drying effect on the skin’s surface. Secondly,
    because smoking restricts blood vessels, it reduces the amount of blood fl owing to the
    skin, thus depleting the skin of oxygen and essential nutrients.



    Some research suggests that smoking may reduce the body’s store of Vitamin A, which
    provides protection against some skin-damaging agents produced by smoking.1 Another
    likely explanation is that squinting in response to the irritating nature of the smoke, and
    the puckering of the mouth when drawing on a cigarette causes wrinkling around the
    eyes and mouth.



    Skin damaged by smoke has a greyish, wasted appearance. Research has shown that
    the skin-ageing effects of smoking may be due to increased production of an enzyme
    that breaks down collagen in the skin.3 Collagen is the main structural protein of the skin
    which maintains elasticity. The more a person smokes, the greater the risk of premature
    wrinkling. Darkening of the skin around the eyes is also a possible effect of smoking.
