Better smile

Oh yeah, your smile will improve, partly because you won’t have yellow, tobacco-stained teeth. But mostly because of how much better you’ll feel inside and out. So go ahead, make yourself even happier. Because everybody loves to see that smile.

Facebook friend Kay shares:

It is amazing when you do.

Test is if you smoke in your car stop smoking for a week,
don’t go near your car for that time, leave the windows up.

At the end of that week see if you can sit in your car.

It is horrible, then smell your clothes.

This is what everyone who does not smoke smells.

I was a smoker.

WOW I stunk!!!

🙂 Sorry everyone.

Relax

Easy does it. Tobacco only relieves stress a few minutes at a time. Learning a new hobby lasts a lifetime. Grab a guitar, paint a picture, build a bird house, write a rhyme, bake a carrot cake. The bonus is, you'll have something new and cool when you're done. And your nasty old habit will be gone.

Your smile says a lot about you

Loose teeth, mouth sores... who needs that? Studies show that 60 to 78 percent of spit tobacco users have oral lesions. Constant exposure to tobacco juice causes cancer of the esophagus, pharynx, larynx, stomach, and pancreas.
