i smoked for 13 years, and quit a year and a half ago, and while i still have acne, my skin looks sooooooo much better! i didn't even realize how bad it looked until it started to look better. Just little clogged pores would have a purplish cast when i was smoking, and i had all these visible looking capillaries, and pimples in general took 3 times as long to heal. There are a million benefits to quitting that are unbelievable, and skin is a biggie. If you're smoking and afraid to quit, don't be! Everything just gets better and better and better.
