Social Smokers

Even small numbers of cigarettes damage your body and increase your risk for smoking-related diseases. Social smoking is smoking. You should also be aware that occasional smoking often leads to daily smoking, which would be even more risky and hard to quit. You may find that quitting is difficult, even if you don't smoke every day. It is possible for you to be addicted to smoking, even when you don't seem to smoke that much.
