It’s the instant reason for death after hypertension and out of 10 adult, one dies because of tobacco. The youngsters of today should not fall for it saying it reduces stress and all. It’s all psychological. I am also from the same generation and proud to say that I haven’t fallen for this – Live Healthy”.
