In brief: Many
Anyone can suffer serious effects from cigarette smoking.
Smoking cigarettes can cause lung, mouth and throat cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure and make all respiratory problems (asthma, ear infections, bronchitis, sinus infections, emphysema) much worse. Smoking cigarettes can stain your teeth, nails and tongue, causing terrible breath.

In brief: Same as anyone else
Smoking side effects are the same in all human beings, male or female, old or young.
They build up over time and are related to how long and how much you smoke. Cough, increased mucus, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, heart and other vascular disease (arteriosclerosis), head and neck cancer and lung cancer. Also bad breath, discolored skin, nails, lips, premature aging of skin with wrinkles.
