    Smoking - although the effect will vary on the amount per day - has been proven to do so (both by science and anecdotal evidence) - I myself have two brothers who both smoke, and though I'm the oldest I look FAR younger than either of them. 
     
    Drinking to excess, regularly, definitely ages you, but I think the jury is very much still out on whether moderate drinking ages you or is actually beneficial to your youthfulness.

    So if a person quits smoking and drinking at the age of 26, is it possible that the effects can be reversed?

    Not reversed damage is done. But you can avoid further damage.

    Drinking, yes deffo possible.  Smoking - I doubt it, however the damage may not be visible yet, and may not become visible for a decade or two. 
     
    Why do you ask, btw??

    I have been smoking and drinking since 4 years and I can already notice serious changes in my physical appearance. At least, that will be the motivation for me to quit both of them.

    You could spend the rest of your life reading all the studies that show the negative impacts of continued, excessive drinking and smoking that you probably wouldn't have time to read them all.

    I can always tell when a women has smoked, looks like she's been suckin on lemon in later life.

    In women it definitely ages them, no idea about men I've never paid attention.

    My nan sucked lemons all her life, and lived until 102. Looked like she'd been smoking 40 a day though.

    This was a very early age to start.
    I would suggest that you have most likely caused major damage to your lungs and liver starting at that age.

    More likely the menopause with women, it  effects their skin quite  badly

    I'm talking about women in there 40s, it's like spotting an ex junkie.
    I thought it was just a natural thing if your a heavy smoker suckin on a fag 400 times a day

    I know a couple of girls who are around 40, they live a good life, out a lot, always smoking and getting drunk... both of their wrinkles really do look bad... they're both really affirmation me that smoking and drinking regularly is a big no no.  I drink on occasion... the next day i'll glug gallons of evian
     
     
     
     

    I used to walk into a room full of people & wonder if they liked me..... Now I look around & wonder if I like them

    Yes both will: I have friends who are smokers and relatively heavy drinkers and they look 10 to 15 years older than they are.
    All toxins will have an ageing effect as they stress the liver and kidneys along with other organs.
    They also suppress the immune system.
    However a moderate amount of alcohol has been shown to have some anti-ageing effects. 
    Exact amounts are subjective with some individuals tolerating higher consumption than others.
    Personally my skin shows signs of ageing if I go on a binge for a week or so. Something I avoid these days.

    Thanks for replies people. At least now I have a reason and motivation to quit smoking and drinking.

    Yes because rotten lungs and dead brain cells weren't motivation enough 
     
    If it makes you look worse, then it's a problem!
