Save your teeth

They want women to think smoking is going this way:

This is how it looks like in reality:
Quit Smoking - Save Your Teeth

Gum disease is usually painless, but can lead to loss of teeth - over one year. Statistics show that smokers are still up to six times more likely to develop gum disease than non-smokers, because the detrimental effect the habit has on their body’s immune system makes them less well-equipped to fight back. It is very important to look after your teeth, because losing them will have a huge influence on your life. Not only will this affect your appearance, it can also impact on your confidence, lifestyle, and so much more.

For example, losing teeth could prevent you from eating a healthy diet. You are less likely to chose to eat something like an apple if your teeth are loose, because it would be difficult to bite and chew it. Smokers who give up are much less likely to lose their teeth prematurely than those who do not kick the habit.
