The amount of damage caused by cigarette is measured in terms of number of cigarettes smoked and the duration of this habit.
According to few studies in the past, smoking half a packet cigarrette for a year and above increase risk to lungs and heart 10 folds.
what is folds?
Records have shown that there are about 0000 deaths a year due to heart / lung and other ailments associated with smoking.
These studies only show that you have an increased risk to lung, heart and other systems due to your habit.
I may not be able to predict the amount of damage done to your body now. However I can tell you this, If you stop this habit completely now, in 2 years time you do not have any risks to your health and body.
The damage done to your body system will clear off and you would just be like any non smoker.

Considering you were smoking for the last 2 years, there are chances of cancers too.

Cancer occurs due to combined effects of various risk factors.
Smoking is one such independent factor that increases chances of cancers by about 10 - 15 percent.
Drinking plenty of water and eating healthy diet doesn't nullify this risk.
The only way to reduce this risk is by quitting smoking completely.
So drinking plenty of water doesn't neutralize the damage done by smoking.
