1. Stop smoking

Everyone knows smoking is bad for you. It increases your risks of getting lung cancer and other severe lung diseases. The damage that the smoke does to lung cells can cause COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder), emphysema, and swelling. Heart disease, stroke, and premature aging are also connected to smoking, but its also associated with a poor immune system.[1]
