Why do People Start Smoking?

There are a number of reasons why people start smoking. Here are a few:-

  • Initially some people start smoking due to peer pressure. 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 experiment to discover the feeling smoking can give them.
  • Other people smoke because they think it makes them look cool.

Smoking has extremely negative effects on a person’s health and appearance. It doesn’t only affect the smoker but also the people near them. Reading through this article gives information on why a person needs to stop smoking.

Negative Impact of Smoking 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 laryngeal cancer. At whatever angle you want to see it, smoking doesn’t have any good help to a person’s health condition.

To a pregnant mother, there are several harmful effects of smoking

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 and still birth are just a few examples.

Another reason why a person should stop smoking is because it 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 that’s why impotence occurs.

Social disadvantages may also be brought by smoking

Smoking stains your teeth and gums which can result in an unsightly smile. Smoking increases your risk of periodontal disease, which causes swollen gums, bad breath and teeth to fall out which 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 that is inhaled by the person near the smoker can also cause the same health problems as that of what the primary smoker can get.

Many people believe it is very 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 courage, effort and dedication for a person to finally stop smoking. It is possible to learn how to replace your smoking habits, manage your cravings, and join the millions of people who have kicked the habit for good. 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. This has a 95.6% success rate.

5 Ways to Quit Smoking

5 Ways to Quit Smoking Hypnosis

5 Ways to Quit Smoking – Check the 5th way – Hypnosis

Making the decision to quit smoking is the first and most important step in quitting smoking. Some people can go cold turkey and not feel too many side effects.  This is often due to the fact they have made the conscious decision to stop smoking. However, most people feel extreme stress and sometimes anxiety when they try to quit.  This is due to the act that they are going against their unconscious mind to do something that has been doing it for so long. It is now a habit.

What are the 5 Ways to Quit smoking

1. Make a Plan and be Committed

Have you ever been on a holiday to say for example Fiji, made the decision and all of a sudden you were there. Now that doesn’t seem feasible does it. So planning is very important and is like most things. There needs to be a plan of how you are going to do it. Then there needs to be the date. This is usually followed by doing the research and finding out the best options.

2. How are you Going to Avoid those Cravings

Be prepared for the cravings and the discomfort of quitting. What can you do to avoid it? People often find that keeping themselves busy is a good start. Think about all the times you smoke eg, when you are bored, filling in time when you have nothing to do, after meals. So give some conscious thought about these times.

However the best way to do that is to make a list in one column of the times you smoke. Then in the right column list down what you can do instead. Keep adding to this list.

Start to affect change in your mind. Stand in front of a mirror and look at yourself smoking and see how ridiculous it looks allowing a little white object to control you so strongly.

Another thing you can do is save all your butts in a jar and every now and then open it and smell it and see how repulsive it is.

3. Avoid Those Times or Places When You Smoke

Perhaps you are smoking more frequently when you are with certain people or places. If it is with certain people, let those people know what you are doing. They will understand you will not be seeing them for awhile.

If it is certain places, then possibly the best thing you can do is stay away for a few weeks until you are well on your way or more comfortable with being a non smoker

4. Stay Positive and Seek Help

Sometimes it is a good idea to share with people your goal to become a non smoker. However on the other hand it can also work against you as they persist on asking you how you are going. Sometimes that in itself can be extremely annoying and enough to make you want to give up. Of course All you need is for someone to sympathise with you and that in itself can be a trigger.

5. Hypnosis

Would you like to quit without worrying about the cravings and other effects mentioned above. Well now you can, with hypnosis. With just one easy 2 hour session you can walk in as a smoker and out as a non smoker. The only thing that is required of you is the “want”. Hypnosis will not work for people unless they have the desire to quit. They cannot quit for someone else, it must be for themselves. People often make the comment that it is like magic. So easy and relaxing.
