According to an article from Medical News Today a 30-year-old smoker can expect to live about 35 more years, whereas a 30-year-old nonsmoker can expect to live 53 more years. If you think those 18 years with your family and friends is more valuable then that cigarette you are about to puff down on then here are some links to free help! I've included a quick link and the actual web address for each.
