This can't be a complete list, I am sure.  There's a good chance you weren't aware of at least one of the diseases.  I would have never connected blindness to smoking.

And this is just the physical effects. Smoking can also be detrimental to your mental and financial well being.  🥹

You can add Vascular Dementia to the list. I just lost one of my sisters to this and have another that is suffering the same.

I personally have heart disease of which they just added my 4th stent and for myself has an added bonus, "now diagnosed" as Prinzmetal angina. This is  spasm's of the coronary arteries and creates a lack of blood to the heart.

Smoking used to generate these attack's but I decided, with the help of the addiction to cigarettes, that this was "JUST" angina associated to the heart disease.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
