I find it ironic that Native Americans used the pipe in ceremonies where only limited smoking was expected. Leave it to us to convert a cerimonial event into a daily act of self distruction.

There are simply no good effects to your body from smoking! It ravages your bones, your lungs, your skin, and makes every cell in your body more likely to become cancerous! Sorry, there is just no way to sugar coat this! I do like that you are on Healthtap ASKING the question however, which says to me you are taking an active role in your health.
