Quitting Smoking

Smoking is commonly associated with socialising and having a good time; yet, the real implications of cigarettes are anything but. According to the Center for Disease Control, smoking causes “cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung diseases, diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis” and increases your risk of “tuberculosis, certain eye diseases, and problems of the immune system, including rheumatoid arthritis.”

After 30 days he’d get a crate of non-alcohol beer, 60 days he’d get a new pair of trainers, six months a new video game.
