In brief: It depends...
10 times a day, 10 times a week, 10 times a month? It really depends on the frequency.
Marijuana smoke is still smoke, and has carcinogens just like tobacco smoke has. So yes, excessive, regular marijuana smoking over years can cause serious health problems.

First answer is excellent. If you are saying you have smoked marijuana ten times total and that is all, you will not be damaged for life if you quit, do not pick up another smoking habit, and lead a healthy lifestyle. The body can repair itself! It needs the proper tools and that includes good habits, exercise, clean eating, lots of water, etc.

Remember that smoking, drinking, or recreational drugs of any kind can result in a lifetime injury if you are involved in an accident while under the influence. Why take chances with your health and your life? You are worth so much more!!!

In brief: Mental problems
Beside the lung problems the continued use is known to cause problems with remembering, being able to think and act on these thoughts generally to improve yourself and get ahead in making the full potential of your inborn abilities mainly mentally.
If you have just used for 10 separate times i would not worry but i would not continue or actually hang out with people who still using. Luck in stoppi.
