In brief: SMOKING BAD IDEA

Lupus is an auto-immune disease that can affect the entire body including kidneys, joints, lungs.
.. Smoking causes vasoconstriction (narrowing) in all vascular beds (blood vessels) and starves tissues of precious oxygen. Lupus patients can not afford such an attack on their body.
