Smokers often – more often than nonsmokers – develop psoriasis, an autoimmune, noncontagious inflammatory skin disease that leaves itchy, oozing red, unaesthetic, ugly, (white crusted) patches all over the body. Psoriasis also can affect joints that become swollen, painful and stiff, making movements difficult and unpleasant.

2. You don’t deserve to endanger the light of your eyes with Cataracts or MACULAR DEGENERATION

Tobacco and nicotine worsen or represent the first cause of several serious eye conditions. All smokers have a 40 percent higher rate of cataracts, a clouding of the crystalline, the eye’s lens that blocks light and leads to blindness. Smoke causes cataracts in two ways: 1)by irritating the eyes, producing chronic inflammation, altering the local metabolism mainly by consuming the antioxidants that contribute to the maintenance of the transparency of the crystalline and 2) by releasing chemicals into the lungs that then travel up the bloodstream to the eyes.

Smoking is also associated with the earlier installation during life of the age-related macular degeneration, an incurable eye disease caused by the deterioration of the central portion of the retina, known as the macula. The macula is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye and controls our ability to read, drive a car, recognize faces or colors, and see objects in fine detail.



  1. Too many smokers simply do not care about health.
    When you talk and explain they do not pay attention, they are not interested. Any remedy ?

    • Even if they seem not interested, the message is recorded somewhere and it will be activated; for us it is crucial to not get discouraged and keep doing well, every day our best, repeating as many times as needed.

  3. Absolutely correct. There is no cell of the smoker’s body to not suffer because tobacco, because of nicotine or because of both. 12 points from 12
    for accuracy and easily accessible language.

  4. The more you tell them about the risks of smoking, the more you insist, the more they ignore the warnings and the more they smoke.

  5. Where do u Know from that all smokers can quit for good ? Why don’t you say anything about the tremendous side effects of quitting that can lead also to suicide ?

    • All smokers can quit because smoking is a very unnatural, artificial habit, even if passionate smokers might not agree.
      Successful quitting – the only one we deal with on this site – does not have side effects; it prevents side effects from the beginningas well as any minimal unpleasant reactions.

  6. You are right about everything. There is nothing more important than health and no one more stuborn than a smoker in accepting that and accepting to have the smoke removed from their eyes and their thinking. Unfortunately 🙁

    • First remove :”supose” & “want to” from your first sentence and write again : I QUIT.
      Second follow TOP 10 – the steps mentioned there, read also the page TOP BEST REASONS TO QUIT SMOKING and let everyone know how are you doing your personal list. In case you need, I’m here ! And I am not the only one crossing fingers for your successful quitting for good.

        • My LIST OF QUITTING REASONS starts with: 1) I quit because I want to.
          2) I quit because what I want prevail to what the drug pushes.
          3)I give up to poison myself because I do not need any of the health troubles brought by smoking.

  7. For Memini Max:
    It’s OK if you start with few reasons and add everyday to have 12 good reasons at least. Afterwards you may keep adding and personalizing your reasons every day, every week, every time when you discover something excellent to strenghthen your motivation to never come back to nicotine or to tobacco.

  8. MERRY CHRISTMAS to Ann Victory and all the others here! My LIST has more than 15 reasons – and is growing – now; many are not to be made public, but they’re very strong and motivating. Thanks Ann & folks!

  9. I’m sure none of the illnesses you speak about is going to affect me. I have a special daily routine that keeps’em away, neutralizing my beloved puffs.

  10. Is it anything that can not be counteracted, any illness or any disbalance that can not be denied by any smoker ? I need something for my nephew, to convince him to have a look upon the health troubles caused by tobacco and nicotine. He is a management student and he knows a lot from very many fields.

    • It’s great to know a lot. It’s excellent if you know also what’s useful for your every day life and health and you are aware that your body is not to be intensivelly poisoned on regular basis. If you neglect that, the price can be huge and is always paid by the weakest part of your body.

  11. I’m very healthy and I have no troubles because of my 9-10 cigarettes I smoke every day. But my bro, a 2pks/day smoker died 3 years ago – and his GP said it was because of smoking. (The onco said there were multiple causes of my bro’s cancer and not only one). I think to quit but I have several fears about getting fat, about withdrawal reactions -they say they can be a nuisance- about cravings, about other health problems, about losing some key friends for my job and about many other things. The truth is that in spite of everything, I want to live longer and see my 5y.o. son geting married when his time comes. Pls, say something encouraging!

  12. Dear Tanita
    Very good decision to stop smoking. It’s wise to quit now, when you feel OK. Now you are strong and you can easier and faster compensate and repair the damages made by smoking. Congrats! Read twice these 2 links and ask here if you have any questions.

  13. Tanita, don’t be afraid to lose the key friends from work! As a quitter you do not have to avoid your smoking friends if you don’t want to. These friends will hardly notice your change, if you do not mention it. Nicotine makes them much careless than you could imagine.

  15. I have a cousin who has quitted and relapsed more than 20 times. I can not understand that. His longest period without smoking was 3 months. I think that if I could get why, I’d be able to help him. What do you think ?

  16. Smokers are blind to common sense and to everything questioning their addiction. Like all other drug addicts. Unfortunately…
