Cigarettes have been a part of my life for twelve years This nasty stinky and disruptive habit has contributed to many problems in my life Not only am I hurting myself but my family suffers because of my addiction Smoking cigarettes causes problems with my appearance my health my endurance and my family First I am ruining my hair nails and teeth After years of smoking I admit that the odor from a cigarette stinks The smell from cigarettes clings to my clothes and hair Also my fingers smell like stale smoke I bathe in perfume to try to hide the smell Waterless anti-bacterial hand wash helps to mask the smell on my hands My fingernails are slightly discolored I try to hide this embarrassment with fingernail polish I deal with my smelly breath by mixing baking soda with my toothpaste twice a day to help control the stains on my teeth Its a constant battle covering the smells and stains left behind by cigarettes Second I have developed a disgusting phlegmy cough better known as the smokers cugh In the morning my husband tells me that it sounds as if Im coughing up my lungs It certainly feels that way I have also realized that cigarettes cause me to snore loudly and keep my husband awake at night For years I thought he was exaggerating but he proved to me that I do snore by filming me with our new Sony camcorder I felt shocked embarrassed and ashamed Also I dont have the endurance of a healthy non-smoker My breathing keeps me from doing a lot of physical activvities I tire quickly when I try to ride a bicycle with my kids If I try to jump on a trampoline my lungs feel like a heavy weight on my chest and I cant get enough air My children cant understand why I dont like to jump as much as they do but I do
