Cigarette Prison: The Smoker’s Isolation

Very often, we think of smoking as a social habit; that is, smoking is something that people do to connect with others around them. But as smoking becomes more and more of a taboo—especially in the public sphere—many smokers are beginning to feel isolated and alone as they see their friends around them quit smoking one by one.

Depressed as he would like to quit

Not so long ago, smokers were everywhere. On planes, in the office, at parties, in their beds reading at night. And even though Big Tobacco is still a multi-billion dollar industry world-wide, headway has been made in the effort to get people to quit smoking: In Australia, for example, the smoking ban in all enclosed public spaces makes it impossible to light up in bars and restaurants.

Smoking bans

These bans plus people’s awareness that smoking is deadly, have contributed to lower rates of smoking in some cases here in Australia. But the shadow side is that smoking is now a stigmatized activity. In today’s world, smokers are usually looked down on by non-smokers.

The stigma surrounding smoking

This can lead many smokers to feel isolated and alone. Some even go as far as to engage in their habit in complete secrecy. Others worry that they will be shut out or mocked by friends, family and colleagues because of their dependency on cigarettes. As a result, many smokers become depressed and unsure of what to do—they want know they want to quit, but aren’t sure how. They just feel so alone.

The good news

Is that smokers don’t have to feel isolated. They can give up their smoking habits without being stigmatized. Quit smoking professionals, like those who employ quit smoking hypnosis, help smokers quit without feeling ashamed of themselves. Smoking cessation professionals help smokers empower themselves to kick their cigarette habits for good. With the guidance of a good quit smoking professional, smokers learn to value themselves and build self-esteem. With self-esteem comes the ability to be alone without feeling isolated as well as the ability to socialize without feeling stigmatized.

No smoker need ever feel isolated because no smoker is ever really alone. There is always help for those who need it—and help to quit smoking is no exception.

You are likely well aware of the many adverse side-effects linked to smoking http://lifecoachtoquitsmok ing.com/smoking-2/why-you-shouldnt-smoke-the-basics, but one issue that often goes unnoticed in the quit smoking battle is the harm cigarettes can do to your teeth.

What is so bad about smoking

Smoking is toxic and the thousands of poisons and chemicals in each cigarette hinder the functioning of your body’s circulatory system.This means that the blood you need to keep your gums healthy and strong isn’t quite making it to your mouth. Furthermore, cigarettes interfere with your body’s ability to generate new cells. As a result healing and preservation don’t take place vis-à-vis your teeth.

How can smoking affect the teeth

These are the main reasons why smoking can lead to a plethora of dental problems, including:
• Gum disease
• Bad breath
• Tooth discoloration
• Plaque and tarter build-up
• Inflamed salivary glands
• Oral cancer

All of the issues above are impediments to your health and happiness (who wants to go around with bad breath). What’s worse is that life with oral cancer can be fatal. Thus, smoking is tantamount to giving up on dental care.

Do you want to have healthy teeth

Then you really should consider quitting smoking. Perhaps you realize this and you are looking for a way to kick your cigarette habit? One quit smoking method that is worth your efforts is quit smoking hypnosis. Quit smoking hypnosis harnesses the power of the brain—the power you have over your own mind—towards positive changes in habits and beliefs. Since research shows that smoking is a psycho-social habit, quit smoking hypnosis gives you the chance to quit smoking for good by creating new, healthy habits that don’t include cigarettes.
