: Unfortunately, tar effects your lungs permanently. This does not mean you can not attain

The previous information is false. Less than one hour after you stop smoking your lungs and heart begin a self-treatment process which continues untikl you are almost as free from the grime in your lungs and bloodstream as someone who has never smoked. You should read some pamphlets or health books that discuss the subject.The previous information is misleading and allows you to beleove that even after one cigarette the damage is irreversible leading some p[eople to continue smoking because Hey the damage is done right? Please know all the information its never too late, your body has amazing healing powers.
