Have u noticed that...

I have noticed a lot of my friends and family that are around the same age as me "28" that smoke and drink regularly look yrs older then me. Have u noticed that about people who smoke and drink? Im not bashing either so please no rude comments? Just started noticing it as I got older .

  • Ya know, they say that, but I'm 25 and have smoked since I was 19 and get told all the time that I look 16. My gramma is pushing 70 and still looks 50 after smoking for 30+ years. So I don't know how true that is.

  • I quit smoking when I got prego with my dd, and I have noticed the same thing in some people, especially around the mouth, the color of the teeth, even a yellowish color on their fingers, and my god they stink!!! I asked my dh if thats what I smelled like, even if I went outside with the wind blowing away the smoke. He said yes. The smell of it makes me gag now.

  • I've noticed it about a lot of people that I know, my mom looked like she was 90 yrs. old (before she died at the age of 63).

  • Yes, I'm in my early thirties and people think I'm in my early twenties and I haven't ever smoked and I rarely drink.

  • Im 44, I used to drink socially, and I still smoke. NO ONE believes im going on 45. I look much younger in person. Your DNA has more to do with how you age and look I think.
