Effect is used to show what happens due to a cause and is often a noun. A side effect of this medication is.....
Affects is used primarily as a verb. How did it affect you when you lost your job?
To keep it straight:
Cause usually go with EFFECT
AFFECT is usually due to a cause.
An affect is generally about a feeling.
'How did it affect you?' means 'how did it make you make you feel?'.
So it is about changes in emotional state, primarily.
It can also be about the kinds of feelings drugs or illness produce.
Here's what I tell my students:
Affect is a verb and effect is a noun. In other words, something that affects produces effects.
There's also the pretentious affect that has the syllable changed.
