Challenges when Quitting Cigarettes

Did you know that cigarettes contain sugar? Most people are unaware that cigarettes contain sugar.

Why is sugar such an important topic when quitting smoking

Quitting Smoking Hypnosis

Quitting Smoking with Hypnosis

When going cold turkey to quit smoking, this information is especially important. It can be the cause of that irritability you see and notice in people when they do quit, especially if they are smoking more than 10 cigarettes a day. The other important factor is the hunger people experience. Over the years I have seen how this can impact on the successful outcome of people quitting.

Everyone is asked to bring water and fruit to their session. This chap let’s call him Peter, left his Quit Smoking Hypnosis session very happy as he was a non-smoker. However, he had not bought the fruit and water but made assurances that he would be going to the shops to get some.

His wife was on a late shift, so he had to collect the kids from school. He went home and after homework, feeding and bathing the kids and putting them to bed, he was really cranky. Why? He had not bought fruit on the way home and was waiting to have dinner with his partner. The kids had been irritable and fighting which upset him. He did not have any fruit from the time he left me at 2pm and it was already 9pm. He was ready to blame the cigarettes because of his bad mood. So, what did he do? You guessed it – he had a cigarette. He was not happy with himself and worse still, felt like a failure. There is no such thing as failure – only feedback. The feedback here is to recognise the important sugar plays in quitting smoking. Needless to say, he came back and we did the session again. He left a very happy man.

Being Hungry when Quitting Smoking

This may also be attributed to the loss of the sugar. It may also be due to the hand-to-mouth habit that has been going on for years. There is that urge to have something to eat. Many people will succumb to eating and hence the weight goes on.

Some People do not put on Weight when Quitting Smoking

Research has shown that while most people put on weight, some more than others; many do not. Many people get caught out by not being prepared for that unexpected urge to eat. For example, when working, usual lunches are prepared and so often they will be eaten at morning tea with nothing left for lunch or later on.

Solution to Wanting to eat When Quitting Smoking

Preparation is most important when quitting.

Ensure you have a good supply of healthy fruit. Now while we know that all fruit is healthy, best to go for the smaller fruit eg. Blueberries, mandarins etc.

High protein snacks are invaluable for those times when hunger creeps in. The most important high protein snack is around mid-afternoon. Most people do not eat between lunch and dinner and then they are starving hungry by the time they get home from work. Being hungry can also make us feel cranky and that is when arguments can start which we later regret.

So preparation is everything. Do the research and know what is needed when quitting smoking. Leaving it to chance is not an option. This is a serious step. Remember that Hypnosis to Quit Smoking is extremely successful and people often look on their success as if it was magic. Thankfully there is no magic with hypnosis. Hypnosis is just changing the habit or the images you have about smoking, so you just do not want that cigarette any more.

What Is It About Teenage Girls That Makes Them So Difficult?

Moody Teenage Girls

Teenagers can be challenging

Ah the Teenage Years.

They creep up on parents out of nowhere, and explode with a hard slap of reality in the face. This is usually in the form of moody behavior, snide comments, and flurries of rolled eyes. Children who once worshiped and idolized their parents suddenly recoil at the thought spending time with them or listening to anything they say.

The teenage years can be a particularly turbulent time for mums and their daughters, and many mums, forgetting how difficult their own teenage years were, scratch their heads and wonder: why are teenage girls so difficult?

The teenage years are difficult for both boys and girls, just in different ways. The onset of puberty between ages 12 and 13 brings many confusing changes to girls’ lives. They start their periods, experience sexual curiosity, begin forming an individuated identity, and lives with the ups and downs of their powerful hormone cycles. These hormones control girls’ emotionally and they becomes prone to anxiety, depression, or rapid mood swings.

Recognise that Hormones play a significant effect on Mood

Being prepared for these mood swings can be invaluable. One of the best ways is to be prepared. There is an excellent book written by Michael Carr-Gregg titled Bitchface Princess. Yes I know. You are probably thinking what an appropriate name.

Girls become increasingly concerned with emulating those in their peer groups. Many girls want to chase “cool” and endeavour to find a way to fit in. This then throws parents, especially mums, into the adolescent stew which at times can produce a toxic reaction: screaming, fights, hysteria, sobbing fits, slammed doors etc.

The turbulence of the teenage girl years is unavoidable. It is something that every family must deal with, but that doesn’t mean it is easy. As a parent, there will be many rough days. Here are a few tips to mitigate the stress levels when dealing with your teenage girl, and keep your sanity as a parent.

Your Teenagers Brain is Still Developing

The frontal lobe for your child is that part of the brain responsible for impulse control, judgment, and decision-making. It doesn’t fully mature until we are in our early 20s. So often teenagers want to be an adult and it is as though they are striving so hard to make it happen. Yet their brain is still developing even though the rest of the body has developed and often appears as an adult.

Set Clear Boudaries

Teenagers aren’t happy when they are acting out. So they will need guidance and support to see them weather the “storm” of puberty. They will need clear boundaries set so they can feel supported.

This too Shall Pass

Teenage girls are quite myopic, and temper storms are usually quick to blow over. As a parent, your role is to diffuse the situation, not add fuel to the fire. The next time your teenage daughter rolls her eyes, screams, slams a door etc. just rest in the comfort that all storms reach a calm end and try not to engage her or egg her on.

Take Time for Yourself

Don’t let the stress levels surrounding your teenage daughter control the household. Make sure you take time to do things you like. Engage in activities that re-charge your battery and make you feel like you have a safe space outside of the teen disaster zone.

Keep an open mind and an open heart

Your teenage daughter needs you and your support more than you know. Not every aspect of a teenage girl’s life is marked by extreme behavior. Teen girls spend a lot of their time calm, collected, sensitive, and sweet too. Keep yourself available to your teen daughter and let her know you are there to talk to her about anything she needs. Make sure she knows how much you love here, even when your “I love you’s” are greeted with rolled eyes and an annoyed “I know mom(or dad)”

Teenage girls can be difficult, but as a parent it is your job to remember that you were once a teen too. It is your role now as an adult, to play the balanced role in the family. If you treat your teenage daughter with love, kindness, respect, and show her firm boundaries about what behavior is acceptable or unacceptable, then you will be able to surf the teenage wave to a more fulfilling relationship with your daughter in her adult life.

If you found this article of interest and feel your daughter of even yourself would like assistance to weather the storm of puberty, then reach out. You can also read other parenting articles that may be of interest.

You Would Like More Help

There are a number of reasons why parents are seeking help for their children. The most common one is trauma especially with bullying at school or in other locations.

Recently I noticed teens struggling to cope with parents separation and they are feeling traumatised. Check out the information provided on Master Your Life Power. It is a wonderful source of interesting information.

Becoming a Non Smoker

Did you ever smoke and are you now a non smoker? You must feel that sense of pride and achievement, and no doubt very, very happy and relieved. Yes, and of course it is an achievement and you have made it – so well done!

Receiving lots of comments and congratulations?

Family are usually the ones who appreciate the sacrifice and effort you have made because they are the ones who worry about you. Clients often tell me that their partner hasn’t made them give up.

Hugh Hamilton-smoking kills

Hugh Hamilton-Smoking killed him at age 47

However so often the smell, mess and worry about their partners health as a smoker is the true reality of their concern and silence. They feel helpless as I did with my husband when he continued to smoke.

Being a trained nurse and knowing the facts, resulted in a great deal of stress especially with four young children. When my husband had his first heart attack, I was scared and worried, even more worried when he decided he wanted to work in PNG. Thankfully the hospital on Bougainville was the best equipped hospital in PNG. So we were blessed.

Twenty months later when he had his second heart attack I was working as the Nursing Superintendent at the hospital. The Medical Superintendent medivac’d him out the next day so he was in Brisbane when they diagnosed him two days later with extensive lung cancer. This had caused a blockage of one of the main arteries to his heart resulting in his heart attack. I sent one of the trained staff to travel with him so I could stay with the children.

The dangers of living on Bougainville

Conflict began to emerge from the start of mining operations at Panguna in 1988 and continued for 10 years. Many of the local landowners were opposed to the mine because it attracted an influx of workers from other parts of PNG.

At that time Bougainville was becoming more isolated with the violence. The airport had been destroyed along with all the planes except one which had been severely damaged. It was imperative I fly to Brisbane to be with my husband as the news wasn’t good. Thankfully the staff were able to repair the plane sufficiently which allowed it to continue flying. It was a difficult time as I had two children still on the island.

A dear friend agreed to care for the children until we could organise flights for the children out of Bougainville. They also packed up our house which was a huge task. Such kindness is never forgotten. Another very kind person gave up their seat on the next available flight to allow me to travel to Brisbane, all the while unsure of how my husband was doing.

We had to make four stops including an overnight stay in Cairns due to the problems on Bougainville. At every stop I wasn’t sure if I had a seat on the next flight as I hadn’t booked. However the airline used their emergency seating to accommodate me. When I arrived in Brisbane my husband was very sick as they had started chemotherapy. There was such a lot of cancer the body struggled to remove the dead cells from the cancer and chemo.

What about the Children?

I was delighted when the children arrived three days later and we could spend time with their father. We had 11 months with him before he died a most unpleasant death having gone through chemo. Later on he was diagnosed with brain tumours and required radiotherapy. However I will always look back on those 11 months and feel gratitude for this time with him. Wherever I can, I will continue to help other families so their loved one can have additional time with them. So love your partner, families and the world at large. You have had your life extended by up to 14 years now so love your life and enjoy those people around you.

Quit Smoking Cold Turkey Timeline

Quitting smoking cold turkey is not easy. Just as you become accustomed to pulling a cigarette out, your body and mind become accustomed to smoking. You develop a habit, and pretty soon it is almost a unconscious reflex. You have a cigarette when you get in your car. You have one when you have your first cup of coffee. You have one the second you step out of the office. As you continue to fuel your smoking habit, your body keeps destroying itself, and suddenly you’re hit with the realization that you need to stop.

Quitting cold turkey does not work for everyone. As mentioned before, the act of smoking is a habit, so quitting involves breaking the habit. And that is tough—imagine quitting another habit, such as biting your nails or cracking your knuckles. While you have chosen to quit smoking cold turkey, there is another option which is so much easier and that quit smoking hypnosis. Instead of taking days or even weeks to quit smoking cold turkey, with quit smoking hypnosis, it is just one session. The added bonus is that you are provided with a Lifetime Guarantee.

What is the Quit Smoking Cold Turkey Timeline

The timeline of quitting smoking cold turkey is relatively short: Within 3 weeks of not having any cigarettes,

Quit Smoking Timeline

Quit Smoking Timeline details how your body will benefit from Quitting Smoking

all of the nicotine will be out of your system, and withdrawal symptoms should cease. But, if you’re a smoker, imagine no cigarettes for three weeks. Most smokers who choose to quit smoking cold turkey often wind up giving in and smoking again. This can happen over and over and over again. Quitting simply doesn’t stick—you’re still left with the habit that you aren’t fulfilling. This leads to cravings. Many people choose to replace cigarettes with other vices, such as e‑cigarettes, or try prescribed medications to quit smoking. Even when using these, you still want to smoke. You are constantly fighting the urge to have a cigarette and trying to ignore cravings.

Long Term Changes in your body when you Quit Smoking Cold Turkey suddenly

The timeline depends on you quitting rather than quitting slowly for example one cigarette a day. So the timeline will vary considerably. Here is a Timeline for the changes that take place in your body when you stop suddenly.

What is the Emotional Impact when you Quit Smoking Cold Turkey

It is a brave person who decides to quit smoking cold turkey as the emotional impact can be so severe. Some people use the cigarette as a crutch, an emotional crutch. The negative emotions that may impact them may be anger, sadness, fear, guilt or even hurt feelings. A person who is in a relationship and has anyone of these emotions may struggle within their relationship due to the sudden or even gradual changes that are occuring in their mind and body. The damage to the relationship can be long lasting and hurtful.

Being aware of this problems comes as a challenge, even with the Quit Smoking Hypnosis. An assessment is done with every client to ensure they are not only ready and quitting smoking for themselves, we also check if they are using the cigarette as a crutch. Then we work on how that person can be helped so they can quit smoking with hypnosis successfully.

How Hypnotherapy is the Answer rather than Quit Smoking Cold Turkey

Think of hypnotherapy as quitting on your own terms with your hypnotherapist helping you. After just one session with a hypnotherapist, you can become a nonsmoker. Doesn’t that sound better than weeks of agonizing withdrawal symptoms and fighting the urge to smoke?

Finding a hypnotherapist you can trust is crucial to the process as a whole. If there is any shred of doubt in your mind, hypnotherapy may not work. You need to be ready to trust your hypnotherapist, and you need to truly want to be a non-smoker. You must be ready and committed.

Think about why you started smoking

Was it stress relief? Peer pressure? No matter how much you enjoyed cigarettes in the beginning, chances are you don’t enjoy them now as you once did. You reach for a cigarette because smoking controls you, not because you truly want that cigarette. This is what makes hypnotherapy for smoking so unique. It works to diminish this relationship that smoking has with your mind. After meeting with a good hypnotherapist, you will never want a cigarette again. The habit will be gone.

Now think about why you want to quit. Do you want to do it for your partner? Your kids? Is your family trying to get you to quit? No matter how close to your heart the reason may be, you will not be successful until you want to quit.

The Hypnotherapist Maureen Hamilton says her greatest love is to see just one more person being taken from the crutches of the cigarette companies and being free of this killing habit.

Quit Smoking Hypnosis Timeline

It can be a real challenge for people who smoke to make the decision to quit smoking. The habit is so powerful and people feel controlled by the cigarettes. They just want to quit!

Unfortunately this can be a challenge. Why? So often they have tried many methods to quit but they are still smoking as none of these worked. Alternatively they may have quit smoking but sadly they started smoking again. So what is the solution?

Quit Smoking Hypnosis is the Solution

While many methods to quit smoking take time, sometimes many months, the Quit Smoking Hypnosis is just one session. The comment people usually make is, “that was so relaxing. I really loved it.” In fact most people would like to stay in the chair and would actually prefer to stay in hypnosis.

Quit Smoking Timeline details how your body will benefit from Quitting Smoking

Quit Smoking Timeline

Motivation to Quit Smoking

One of the great motivators for people to quit is their health. The chart above adds to this providing a timeline of how the health improves once they have quit smoking with hypnosis.

Preparation is Important with Quit Smoking Hypnosis

The idea of a silver bullet to quit smoking or instant success is more of a fallacy. This habit has been created in a person’s mind many years ago. Therefore, for many years since and with each cigarette they smoke, the habit has become more powerful. So preparation is the key to quitting smoking.

What is the Preparation Required when Quitting Smoking with Hypnosis?

The most important preparation is the decision to quit smoking. Now that doesn’t include being forced to quit smoking by a partner or loved one eg family. Take for example a client who says they want to quit. However when asked why she wants to quit, she turns to her partner sitting beside her and said, “If I don’t quit, he will leave me!” Firstly that is blackmail and most importantly the person is not giving up for themselves. They are giving it up for someone else. There is very little chance of success and even if they do succeed, their ability to sustain themselves as a non smoker is limited. What often happens is they will start smoking again and then they may feel like a failure as it didn’t work. This has a really negative impact on a person’s life. It makes them believe that it is impossible for them to quit smoking.

The Reasons and Benefits to Quit Smoking with Hypnosis

The next step is writing down the reasons for quitting and the benefits. This is followed by when they smoke and what are they going to do during those periods or  times when they do smoke. The most common times when people smoke are first thing in the morning, after meals, driving, stressed, drinking alcohol, work breaks and boredom. So it is important to identify these times and any other times. Then think about what they are going to do instead of reaching for a cigarette.

Understanding and Experiencing Hypnosis

Here are Life Coach to Quit Smoking we provide two audios in preparation. The first one explains the process and is very informative. The second audio allows the person to experience hypnosis with a Stress Reduction and Relaxation audio. Both of these are very important and part of the preparation for the Quit Smoking Hypnosis.

Quit Smoking Hypnosis

Quitting smoking can be such a challenge for many people. They may not have tried the quit smoking hypnosis.

They may have tried other methods and sometimes these work, quite successfully. Although some have had to make considerable sacrifices and gone through difficulties while using the product. Some experience nightmares, nausea and a number of other side effects.

Thankfully the quit smoking hypnosis works so well that people are non smokers at the end of just one session. The usual comment is that it was such a relaxing experience. Better still, they report back months, years later that they never felt like a cigarette again after their quit smoking hypnosis session.

Sadly though using other methods, many fall back into becoming a smoker again, maybe 1 week later and some many years later. The most important message is that smoking is a habit. We are all told and led to believe that smoking is an addiction. So why is so hard to quit smoking?

When do People Start Smoking?

Teens Smoking will need to Quit Smoking Hypnosis later

Teenagers Smoking Cigarettes will need to Quit Smoking Hypnosis in the future

This is a question we could ask ourselves, that is if we ever smoked. You may have started smoking in your teenage years. That is the time when we desire to be an adult. Of course it is often due to peer pressure or just experimenting. Teenagers often feel as though they are invincible and “smoking won’t hurt me!” and this is a frequent comment. Perhaps you can relate to this.

Of course you may have coughed and spluttered but eventually you decided you enjoyed it. The unconscious mind is there to keep us happy. So once it registers you enjoy smoking, it puts it in as a habit. Of course, the more you smoke, the stronger that habit becomes. So where is the habit stored? In the unconscious mind. This is why, when using quit smoking hypnosis, it is so successful. While you are in that relaxed state of hypnosis, I can talk to the unconscious mind and give it the message that you want to be a non smoker.

Is Smoking an Addiction or a Habit?

I had a conversation with a doctor a number of years ago regarding this message. He came in to do the quit smoking hypnosis too.

Dr Advising to use Quit Smoking Hypnosis

Dr and partner encouraging patient to quit smoking with hypnosis

However he was not convinced that it wasn’t an addiction. I went through and explained and reasoned why it cannot be an addiction.

Our conversation went like this – “No doubt doctor you have cared for many patients who have been addicted, perhaps it was drugs or perhaps alcohol. We both know that after a number of hours, they need a “fix”. So how is it that you came into my practice a smoker and two hours later you walk out a non-smoker, NO cravings. So how can this be an addiction?” His response was, “Hmmm ok”. He did walk out a very happy non-smoker.

The problem with nicotine is that it suppresses the emotions. So when trying to quit smoking, those old emotions of anger, sadness, guilt etc may emerge so the person may feel angry, sad or guilty etc. This is discussed during the quit smoking hypnosis session. Anyone who needs additional support due to any of these The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP) is a wonderful way to address any anxiety, depression, PTSD, panic attacks and other emotional issues. A holistic approach is taken to all the therapies provided and especially Quit Smoking Hypnosis.

Quit Smoking to Avoid the Corona Virus

According to a leading infectious disease expert Dr Michael Gardam, it is definitely time to quit smoking. Being able to quit smoking with hypnosis is a sure and easy way to quit.

With each puff of smoke entering the lungs, the air is tainted, restricting the lungs from obtaining the quality of oxygen required to maintain a healthy life.

Does Smoking Impact the Immune System?

This poor quality of air or lack of oxygen not only affects the lungs, it affects every organ in the body. This in turn impacts the immune system.  The immune system is important and any disease affecting the immune system can be a concern.

Energy Kicks in on Day 4

So quitting cigarettes as soon as possible will improve not only your quality of life, it will also allow your lungs the opportunity to provide a clearer environment for your entire body.

5 Things to Remember When You Stop Smoking

Happy Contented Non Smoker

Being a non smoker provides so much freedom and relief

Congratulations! Quitting smoking is a major achievement that you should be proud of!

Tips to Help Your Body Recover as a Non Smoker

But giving up the tobacco habit is only the first step in the long smoking cessation healing process. Your body will now need to recover from the damages wrought on it by cigarettes. To help you along in the process, to keep you from going back on tobacco, here are 5 things you need to remember to do when you quit smoking:

Water

When you quit smoking you need to drink water. Lots and lots of water! Water helps detox the body by flushing out the toxins and chemicals that have been depositing into your system by cigarettes. It is recommended you drink 2-3 litres of water a day. Your body has a blueprint of where you should be. So once it registers you are a non-smoker it will be removing those toxins and poisons from your body as quickly as it can and this can impact on your kidneys. So avoid kidney pain by drinking water.

Fruit

Cigarettes contain sugar and lots of it. So once you are a non smoker, you will need to look at how you will replace that sugar. Fruit is a healthy option and you will need something every half hour or less frequently depending on the number of cigarettes you smoked. It is important to eat a variety of different fruits. Fruits contain many of the vitamins and nutrients that your body needs to replenish after smoking.

Deep Breathing

When people smoke, as a rule they inhale the smoke. This moves the toxins, tar, nicotine and poisons into the outer areas of the lungs. Once they become non smokers, they rarely take those deep breaths.  So it is important to take deep breaths constantly to remove these from the lungs. This is why it is not unusual to see people develop pneumonia once they quit smoking. The best method is the 4, 7, 8 method. So breathe in deeply for 4, hold it for 7 and breathe out slowly for 8. Do this twice at least every hour and more often if you smoked 20/day or more.

Check Your Bank Account

Smoking is not only a dangerous habit, it is an expensive habit. Smoking is a bank breaker for many people. Therefore, if you are struggling with motivation in the first few days after you quit smoking, make a plan to calculate how much money smoking cessation saves you—and maybe plan to use that money for something more healthy, fun or productive as well.

Be Trigger Conscious

In the days after you give up the psychosocial smoking habit, you will need to be very conscious of what triggers you vis-à-vis smoking. What is it that makes your reach for a cigarette? Being aware of your triggers allows you to both avoid and defuse them to stay smoke free.

Quitting smoking is not a one day event, it is a lifelong process. This is why it is important to have a plan of action with regard to stopping smoking. Having a plan will help you stay smoke free for the long haul.

One plan that is worth investigating is quit smoking hypnosis. Quit smoking hypnosis helps you re-program your attitudes and beliefs towards cigarettes so that you are no longer dependent on them for stress relief or any other form of psychological soothing. As a smoking cessation method, quit smoking hypnosis will teach you to transfer your emotional responses onto healthy activities instead. Try it—you will find that it helps you stay off tobacco in order to live a healthier life.

5 Reasons Why You Need to Stop Smoking

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis North Brisbane

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis

People smoke for many different reasons and there are also a lot more reasons why a person should stop smoking.

Why do People Start Smoking

Initially some people start smoking due to peer pressure because they don’t want to be different from their friends. Some people smoke out of curiosity. They want to know what it tastes like or what it feels like to smoke. Other people smoke because they think it makes them look cool.

Smoking has extremely negative effects on a person’s health and appearance. It not only affects the smoker, it also affects the people near them.

Why a person needs to stop smoking

1. Smoking has a great negative effect on your health

Smoking can lead to lung cancer and other chronic lung problems which could lead to a slow and painful death. It can cause extreme damage to other body organs such as the heart or the whole cardiovascular system. Smoking can also lead to other types of cancer such as throat cancer. At whatever angle you want to see it, smoking doesn’t have any good help to a person’s health condition.

2.During pregnancy

There are several harmful effects of smoking during pregnancy. When an expecting mother inhales tobacco smoke from a cigarette, some of the chemicals are exhaled immediately and leave the body, but others stay in the body and make their way into the placenta. There are a lot of possible pregnancy complications that have been associated with women who smoke. Ectopic pregnancy, foetal death, miscarriage, still birth and more commonly premature birth are just a few examples.

3. Smoking can cause impotence.

Impotence is a problem among men characterized by consistent inability to sustain erection that is sufficient for a sexual intercourse. Smoking can damage the blood vessels supplying blood to the penis and cause them to degenerate. Nicotine narrows the arteries that lead to the penis, reducing blood flow and the pressure of blood in the penis. This can then result in impotence.

4. Social disadvantages may also be brought by smoking.

Smoking stains the teeth and gums which can result in an unsightly smile. Smoking increases the risk of periodontal disease, which causes swollen gums, bad breath and teeth to fall out. These are huge social disadvantages.

Second-hand smoke is dangerous to other people. Therefore, smoking is not allowed in many public places. The smoke coming from the cigarette inhaled by the person near the smoker can also cause the same health problems as experienced by the smoker themselves.

5. The Cost of Cigarettes is Very High

In countries such as Australia where the tax is very high on any type of cigarettes, people want to quit but are struggling to quit smoking. The money to buy cigarettes is reducing the quality of their lives which in turn impacts on the whole family. This in turn impacts on the mental health causing frustration, stress and possibly relationship problems.

Many people believe it is too hard to just suddenly stop smoking. It’s not supposed to be a one day or one month process. Some people go cold turkey and most become so irritable that their spouse, partner or friend become so fed up they often go out and buy a packet of cigarettes just to bring harmony back into the home.

It takes a lot of commitment, effort and dedication for a person to finally stop smoking. To increase your chances of success, you need to be motivated, have social support, an understanding of what to expect, and a personal game plan. The most effective system today is with Hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP.

Does Smoking Damage the Heart?

Yes, smoking can damage the heart. The heart is the organ that supplies blood and oxygen to all parts of the body. It is about the size of a clenched fist, weighs about 10.5 ounces and is shaped like a cone. The heart is the most important muscle in the body. Circulation of blood also picks up waste products like poisons from cigarette smoke and carries them to different parts of the body. So cigarette smoking can cause serious damage to the heart.

What is Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis is a disease which produces is a build-up of plaque inside our arteries. Plaque is composed of fatty deposits, cholesterol, calcium and other substances. These substances will, over time, cause the arteries to become narrower. This therefore lessen the flow of blood to the brain, heart and other areas of the body.

Heart attacks, strokes, heart diseases and most other cardiovascular diseases are primarily caused by atherosclerosis. The toxins and poisons coming from the cigarette smoke when entering the blood stream greatly contribute to developing atherosclerosis. This is accelerated by the build up of the plaque inside the arteries. Smoking can also cause raised cholesterol.

Heart attack

People who have atherosclerosis can suffer a heart attack as a blockage in the main artery may cause restricted blood flow to the heart. This causes pain and the person will have a heart attack. The main reason is because the blood and the oxygen it carries cannot pass through the main artery or the vessels supplying blood to the heart. This causes damage to the heart muscle and the heart or that area that is depleted of much needed blood flow may subsequently dies as a result.

Angina

Angina is chest pain or discomfort that occurs when a person has insufficient blood and oxygen supplying the heart or an area of the heart muscle. It can be caused by physical exertion but it can also be due to smoking. Angina usually does not cause death whereas a heart attack may result in death.

Stroke

Smoking cigarettes puts people at a higher risk of suffering a stroke or cerebrovascular accident(CVA). A stroke occurs when there is a lack of blood and oxygen reaching a part of the brain causing brain cells to die. Lack of oxygen to the brain is often caused by atherosclerosis in the artery that leads to the brain, which restricts the blood flow and therefore the amount of oxygen that is carried with it. As the blood flow is restricted due to the fatty deposit build up, which narrows the arteries, a blood clot may form and a stroke will result as the tissues around the brain are starved of oxygen.

The effects and benefits of giving up smoking on the cardiovascular system are often immediate and greatly reduce the risk of suffering any of these diseases. Once a smoker stops smoking atherosclerosis is slowed down, the blood is less likely to clot and oxygen and blood can pass through the arteries more freely and more easily, which relieves stress on the heart and lessens the damage on the heart. Cholesterol levels are also reduced, which will slow the build-up of cholesterol in the arteries.
