Adverse health effects from tobacco usage are well documented. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, over ten times as many Americans have died prematurely from cigarette smoking than have died in all the wars fought in U.S. history. Smoking can harm every organ in the human body, and it can directly result in death from heart disease, cancers or strokes. Cancer is far and away the most common of these diagnoses; 90% of lung cancer deaths in the U.S. can be attributed to smoking.
Chronic illness in the form of obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiac disease, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders has also been conclusively tied to smoking. Women are at particular risk and may experience difficulties with conception or pregnancy.
Wyoming Department of Health has programs to help you with free or low-cost nicotine patches and gum, and for a limited time you can get a free prescription for Chantix.
