smoking is really crummy for your skin. I did it for 13 years, and when i stopped, my skin looked tons better. Even if it didn't clear up totally, the color, tone, and appearance was a million times better. I did break out at first when i quit- toxins rushing out of my body, and that happens to a lot of ppl, but it clears quickly. Even if smoking doesn't give you zits, it will eventually make your skin look a lot worse. If you look at old ppl, you can always tell the smokers by their skin.
