Tired of 'quitting smoking'. Let me help you
Hopefully, you're now excited and convinced that you can learn how you can quit
smoking forever. But, are you convinced that NOW is the time to Never
Smoke Again? Can you summon up the courage it takes to stop smoking for the rest
of your life? It is
easier to quit smoking if you are motivated to do so. To help you get the
'right' attitude, here are my top 10 reasons to Never Smoke Again. YOUR reasons
for quitting may or may not be on this list, but are just as important.
10. You will save a lot of money. At approximately $7.50 per pack, assuming you smoke one pack per day, your annual cost of smoking is over $2800.00 per year. And assume that the average smoker doesn't usually live past the age of seventy (if they live that long). If you started smoking at an early age, your total lifetime savings would be around $154,000.00, which doesn’t even include the compounded interest. This is a significant amount of money could become a significant portion of your retirement savings. Also, as a non-smoker, your life insurance premiums will be substantially lower than a smoker's premium, which would provide even more savings.
If you quit, you will earn the respect of your family, friends and
co-workers. More and more, society
tends to view smoking as an awful and dangerous practice for those who were misfortunate
enough to get sucked into the smoking hype and too weak to pull away from it. By quitting smoking you are sending a message to EVERYONE
that you have the strength, the common sense and the ability to quit a smoking
habit. Show other people around you that you are a STRONG, capable person. By
quitting smoking, you are communicating to the people you know that you cherish
life and that you are the type of person that makes responsible life-long
decisions. Take pride in quitting smoking. Quitting smoking is a great achievement
and the credit will be all yours.
8. Improve your looks.
Many women (some men too?) spend a small fortune on anti-wrinkle creams, but the
best way to stay beautiful is to stop smoking. The average smoker has ten times
more wrinkles compared to non-smokers. A smoker's skin is wrinkled, pale and
Smoking causes the microscopic muscle fibers in the walls of the blood vessels
to contract causing smokers to have pale skin. A single cigarette can reduce the
blood supply to the skin for more than an hour. Giving up smoking will improve
the blood supply to the skin and give previously pale skin a more 'natural'
appearance. Smoking can also stain your teeth. Its no surprise that smokers look
like smokers. Quit smoking - look better. It really does make a difference.
7. Do it for the people in your life that care about you. Smoking
reduces your life expectancy. Smoking can make you sick. Smoking can kill you.
If you continue to smoke you will most likely die at a much younger age than you
would if you didn't smoke. As a smoker, you frighten the people in your
life that love you and depend on you. The consequences of your smoking are REAL,
not hypothetical. Consider what you are doing to your family. Do everyone that
cares about you a BIG favor and Never Smoke Again.
6. Get your breath back! If you smoke then you probably
experience severe shortness of breath. This is because your lungs are filled
with a sticky black substance known as 'tar' that inhibits your lung's ability
to extract oxygen from the air you breathe. If you could see a picture of your
lungs right now, it would probably make you sick. Click here to see what the
difference is between a healthy non-smoker's lungs
and a tar-stained smoker's lungs. Or check out
this astonishing video of what happens to your lungs when you smoke. Let's face
it. If everyone had a machine that would let us see what our lungs looked like
whenever we looked into the mirror, there would be no more smokers. Every time you inhale smoke, you add more tar to your lungs. It just isn't natural to do
something like that to yourself. The good news is that if you Never Smoke Again,
your lungs will begin to heal themselves and eventually much of the tar that has
collected in your lungs will clear up. There's no time like the present!
5. Significantly reduce your chances of getting Heart Disease and Cancer. Smokers have a two to four times greater risk of sudden cardiac death than
nonsmokers. If you have been diagnosed with any condition that that puts you at
risk for heart disease, smoking will dramatically increase your overall risk of a heart attack.
Tobacco is toxic to your body. The nicotine in cigarettes makes your body release adrenaline. Adrenaline causes your blood vessels to constrict and your heart to beat faster, which raises your blood pressure. Smoking increases LDL (bad) cholesterol and decreases HDL (good) cholesterol. Cigarette smoking combined with a family history of heart disease also seems to greatly increase the
risk of heart disease, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes. Cigarette smoking is so widespread and significant as a risk factor that the Surgeon General has called it "the most important of the known modifiable risk factors for coronary heart disease in the United States."
AndCancer? As a smoker you
are 14 times more likely to die of lung cancer, 14 times more likely to die of
mouth or throat cancer and twice as
likely to die of bladder cancer. "The leading cause of premature, preventable disease and death in the
United States is cigarette smoking. If you don't stop smoking soon, you will
surely die a horrible, disease-ridden death. Do the right thing. STOP
4. You will greatly reduce your chances of
Tens of thousands of people die each year in the U.S. from Chronic Obstructive
Pulmonary Disease (COPD). COPD is a chronic disease of the respiratory tract
that appears in about 20 percent of all smokers, and is a collective term for a
group of diseases forming a continuous obstruction of the respiratory tract.
Among these are emphysema, a disease where the lungs become inflamed, and
chronic bronchitis, in which the sufferer has a continuous cough for at least
three months a year for a minimum of two years. COPD is caused by an
inflammatory reaction due to smoke causing the airways to contract, producing
more breathing resistance and a feeling of 'can't get enough air'. When a COPD
patient's condition worsens suddenly and they are hospitalized for the first
time, their lung function is usually less than half the norm. At this stage, the
disease is serious, and about 30-40 percent of COPD sufferers die each year.
3. Gender-specific Benefits
Women: Lots to know. There are so many benefits to quitting smoking for
you that I can't possibly list them all here. Please read this informative
article on About.com to learn why continuing to smoke is such a poor choice for
Men: You will improve your sex life.
(Some would call this reason #1.) I would be remiss in my duties to not point
out the strong link between smoking and the difficulties of having an erection. Nicotine is a vasoconstrictor. This means that it tightens blood vessels and restricts the flow of blood throughout the body. It can even cause permanent damage to arteries. An erection needs blood flow. Just two cigarettes can cause softer erections. Study after study has shown there is
a direct correlation between smoking and ED.
The answer is simple; quit smoking and have better sex. Guys, if
that doesn't make you want to quit smoking what will? Read this
informative article on About.com for more details.
2. You won't be exposing innocent people to second-hand
smoke. Second-hand smoke can harm other innocent people (non-smokers). That's a
fact. Approximately 2 percent of lung cancer deaths each year are thought to be
caused by passive smoking. The immediate effects of breathing second-hand smoke
include an increase in heart rate and blood pressure, and dangerous levels of
carbon monoxide in the blood. The smoke from the burning end of a cigarette is
filled with hundreds of dangerous chemicals and contains more tar and nicotine
than the smoke that is directly inhaled. Do you smoke near children?
Studies show that babies whose parents smoke are admitted twice as often to
hospitals for conditions such as bronchitis and pneumonia. Children under the
age of 2 are particularly susceptible because their lungs and immune system are
not yet fully developed. Statistically, the effects of ETS (Environmental
Tobacco Smoke) on children add up to 13% of ear infections, 24% of
tonsillectomies, 26% of tympanostomy tube insertions, 13% of asthma cases, 16%
of physician visits for coughs and 20% of all lung infections (in children under
5). And yes, some children DIE from exposure to ETS. Face it! People that are
exposed to second-hand smoke are PUT IN DANGER. Any
attempt to deny this is dishonest. You absolutely MUST quit smoking
And the number one reason to Never Smoke Again is:
1. YOU! Do it for yourself. You deserve that much. By
ending your cigarette habit you will prove to yourself and those around you that
you possess self-respect. You must first love and care about yourself before you
can love others. Demonstrate your self respect by quitting smoking! Ultimately
the decision to Never Smoke Again comes from how you feel about yourself. There
is nothing better you can do for yourself than to prove and establish your own
self-respect by ending your smoking habit FOREVER.
