The hardening of arteries and the stiffening of blood vessels raise your blood pressure and force your heart to work harder, which can lead to a heart attack. Your relationship with smoking leads to early signs of heart disease and stroke, even though you are young. Your resting heart rate could already be two to three beats per minute faster than non-smokers.
