Why You Shouldn’t Smoke: The Basics

africa / FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Smoking is one of the worst things that you can do to your body; there is not benefit to smoking, no silver-lining. Yet despite the ubiquity of information on why smoking is bad for you, many people still do it. Thus, it is always worthwhile to remind people of the quit smoking benefits. We will discuss a few of the major reasons why to give up cigarettes below.

Smoking is one of the leading causes of preventable death; that is, smoking deaths occur solely because of smoking. This is the great tragedy of smoking: nobody that smokes needs to die—they die because of a psychosocial habit. There are a variety of adverse health effects associated with smoking. The most prominent are:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Cancer
  • Lung disease

In addition to the deadly side effects listed above, smoking has an impact on nearly every aspect of your body and mind. The over 4000 toxins found in tobacco assault the body, leaving the skin looking worn and wrinkly, depression and anxiety disorders aggravated, teeth yellow, muscles loose, nails and hair brittle, and the immune system destroyed.  Smoking is a habit that can only bring pain and death. There is no sugar-coating this one—smoking is fatal.

The good news? As soon as you quit smoking, the body begins to heal;  in fact, the healing begins within 20 minutes of quitting. But quitting smoking is not a 20 minute event.  Indeed, it is a lifelong process. This is why it is important to have a plan will that will help you stay smoke free for the long haul. One way to do this is to engage in quit smoking hypnosis. Quit smoking hypnosis teaches you to stop using cigarettes for  psychological soothing and start living a healthy life.

Customer Testimonials

Hi Maureen. Just a quick note to say thank you. I have not had even a puff of cigarette since our session on 10 May 14. Any desire or thought flits straight out again. This is certainly a much less painful way to stop smoking. I recommend you to anyone who is interested, even had someone ask about weight loss. Hope all is well for you.  Regards
