      Hi Natalia – gosh, that’s a strange one.

      Disgustingly smelly I should say, with the hospitals packed with people suffering from lung cancer. Horrible!

      I think it would be a worse place – with a great deal of uneccesary illness, and I hope that in fifty years very few people will want to smoke at all any more. One cigarette a day is not so much, but most people will end up smoking much more than this.

      Please see another answer about smoking

      is it true cigarettes takes 9 seconds off your life every time you smoke?

      and if you want to find out more here is a paper that spells out the dangers of smoking very clearly (if e.g., you look at the graphs or tables).
