Smoking is the number one cause of stroke. Smoking can:

  • Make blood thicker and more likely to clot
  • Increase the buildup of plaque (fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances) in blood vessels leading to the brain
  • Lead to pain in the hands and feet; it may be severe
  • Damage blood vessels in the brain
