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.

Does bad grammar and spelling bother you?I don't expect everyone to be an English professor, but for goodness sake people, use some punctuation and a built in spell-check! This is primarily aimed at forums, hubs, and places like YouTube comments. Places where people could take the time to read over...
