Underweight and Don't Know Why
Until about a year ago, I maintained a steady weight of 160 to 165 pounds, but now I am at 125 to 130 pounds, and this number seems to be decreasing every month. I have tried everything I can think of to gain weight but have been unsuccessful so far. Could there be something wrong with my health? I have been smoking about a pack of cigarettes a day for the past nine years.

Smoking can cause heart disease and lung cancer.
