It is bad for your health to smoke cigarettes in general. The expiration date likely has more to do with the taste of the tobacco than health effects. If you are concerned about your health, it would be a good idea to stop smoking now because the longer you smoke, the more difficult it will be to quit. If you continue to smoke, you are more likely to develop these health problems later: emphysema, coronary artery disease, lung cancer, other cancers such as pancreatic, and premature skin aging.
