Still smoking? Read on to know how smoking affects you and why you need to stop!
Legs and feet: Extremities grow cold and tire easily. Narrow blood arteries cause blood to travel slowly to certain locations, causing them to become exhausted quickly.
Toenails and skin: Toenails become brittle and crack easily when you smoke, while the skin becomes flaky and dry, making you susceptible to fungal diseases.
Nerves in feet: Your extremities become less sensitive and occasionally lose all sensation. You risk missing a cut or bruise on your feet when you can’t feel what’s happening there, especially if you’re diabetic. It may also risk you falling.
