A pretty interesting and informative poster by the Australian National Preventive Health Agency about smoking.
More often than not, people tend to think that as long as they run or exercise, they are “allowed” to smoke because well, they are keeping their body fit. But thing is, every cigarette you smoke is only doing you more harm than good.
Yes, it “relaxes” you for the time being and is a great social tool. But smelly, smoky fingers and breath isn’t really a great way to keep a handsome image. Also, with tar in your lungs, I’m not really sure of how it would help you in your future runs, marathons, triathlons and other sports activities.
On a side note, smoking pollutes the air and destroys our environment. Have you seen how SMOGGY Singapore is lately? Zomg.
Of course its easier said than done, i must admit it. But hey, the goodness it brings, its gonna be all worth it. 🙂
