Second Hand Smoke Worse Than Smoking – Quit Smoking

Secondhand smoke is dangerous

Effects of smoking on Children

Everyone knows that smoking is one of the most deadly and harmful habits one can develop.  Each time a person lights a cigarette and inhales they are inhaling around 4000 chemicals and toxins. Being around this tobacco smoke is equally bad for non smokers who are in close proximity. It is harmful and dangerous when someone is around a person smoking a cigarette. Much of the toxin loaded smoke does not enter their lungs, it is spread in the air. Any person in the vicinity of a person smoking also inhales these toxins and chemicals as they breathe the polluted air.

Secondhand smoke and its impact:

Smoking is banned in most public places. However people are still exposed to secondhand smoke. Children of parents who smoke are the biggest victims of second hand smoke. People who try to be responsible and avoid smoking in public places, end up smoking indoors in rooms. They do not realize that these closed rooms get clogged with harmful smoke, where children and babies are forced to breathe. It is believed that children and babies who inhale cigarette smoke in a closed room, inhale smoke equivalent to smoking 10 cigarettes.

Diseases affecting children caused by secondhand smoke

Science says that the breathing rate of children and infants is much faster as compared to adults. While normal adults take around 12-20 breaths per minute, babies and children take almost 20-60 breaths. This means that children and babies will inhale more toxic smoke each minute as compared to adults.

Children exposed to secondhand smoke face the risk of having:

  • Issues related to respiratory system including asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia and bronchiolitis.
  • Frequent bouts of colds and coughs
  • Middle ear infections
  • Increased chances of suffering from cancer in childhood and/or adulthood.

Quit Smoking, if not for you for others

If anything is stopping you from making the decision to quit smoking, think about the impact of secondhand smoke on the people around you, especially children. The effects of secondhand smoke on children will give you the will power to deter yourself from picking up a cigarette. Remember, smoking is a habit. Our body does not get addicted to nicotine. Our powerful mind is trying to keep you happy and believes that smoking is doing exactly that.

To overcome this habit, one will need to learn to control their mind.  This is where help from a hypnotherapist will be useful to aid you when you decided to quit smoking. A hypnotherapist will assist you by talking to your unconscious mind while you are in that relaxed state of hypnosis, giving it the message you no longer want to be a smoker.

A hypnotherapist will help you re-build new healthy habits around smoking so that you do not want a smoke. If you are determined to quit smoking and are really concerned for the people around you, do consider the hypnotherapy option so you can take control of your life and be a non smoker.

Can Quit Smoking Lose Weight

You’ve probably heard that smokers lose weight just from smoking, and that people who quit smoking start gaining weight.

If you’re a smoker, think about your other lifestyle habits. Odds are, they aren’t the healthiest choices either. Maybe your cholesterol levels are too high, or maybe you don’t get enough exercise, leading to poor metabolism and even poorer dietary habits.Quit Smoking Hydrates the Skin

If you’re looking to quit smoking to help you lose weight, or vice versa, find an accredited hypnotherapist in your area. He or she can help you develop good habits that will help you become a healthy nonsmoker!

Can quit smoking help you lose weight?

It’s widely believed that people who quit smoking gain five to ten kilos on average. Depending on the person, this can be due to overeating after quitting smoking. Many people eat more after quitting because of the oral fixation. Because the smoking habit is so deeply instilled in a smoker even after quitting, they need to replace the feeling of a cigarette in their mouth with something else, such as sucking on lollipops or crunching on pretzels. This often occurs in people who are not using hypnosis  but are giving up smoking using other methods which does not change the habit as happens in hypnosis.

Another reason why many people gain weight after quitting smoking is because of a drop in metabolism. Since nicotine raises the body’s metabolic rate, the absence of nicotine decreases it. This can cause you to gain weight if you do not change your movement or dietary habits once you quit smoking.

But—it is possible, when quitting smoking, to lose weight. Think about it! Quitting smoking for life takes a ton of dedication, self-motivation, and thought. Wouldn’t it make sense to use this opportunity to better your life as a whole, rather than only quitting smoking? Your health will undoubtedly benefit from you quitting smoking, but imagine how much better you’d feel if you quit smoking and, say, exercised for 20 more minutes each day. If you’re ready to quit smoking, take this opportunity to truly better your life and future. Check the information below.

If you are ready to become a nonsmoker and improve your life as a result, hypnotherapy is for you.

Why hypnotherapy is the right choice for quitting smoking

Hypnotherapy is unlike any other method to help you quit smoking, and it doesn’t come along with weight gain. Once you have just one session with a hypnotherapist, you are not a smoker and your habit is gone. This means you will not turn to food to replace cigarettes—the urge won’t even be there anymore.

Quitting smoking with more traditional methods, such as going cold turkey, using the nicotine patch, or taking medications, means you’ll still have to fight temptation, but quitting smoking with hypnotherapy eliminates the temptation from your life completely. You won’t wake up the morning after hypnotherapy craving a cigarette. The most important thing, however, is your commitment and “Want” to quit. If you don’t bring the want to quit to your hypnotherapy session, the treatment will not work. You also need to trust your hypnotherapist and be confident in him or her. Any shred of doubt will prevent you from becoming a nonsmoker with hypnotherapy.

So, if you want to lose weight while quitting smoking, you need to be determined to change your lifestyle and stay motivated to developing and maintaining good health. And hypnotherapy can help you do just that!

Maureen Hamilton – Hypnotherapist

Maureen Hamilton is a hypnotherapist and has helped over a thousand people to quit smoking. The experience and feedback coming from clients indicate that there are two groups of people. Group A do put on weight, on average 5 -10 kilos although very occasionally even higher. However in Group B people do not put on weight in fact quite often they lose weight. So why this discrepancy.

Note: Well Group A are probably not eating very healthy in the first place and when the energy kicks in on Day 4 or thereabouts, they don’t take advantage of that and increase their exercise. Meanwhile Group B as soon as that energy kicks in they are doing exercise and feeling healthy, breathing better and increasing their self confidence and self esteem. Most importantly they are not putting on weight and in fact quiet often lose weight.

Final thoughts

With a hypnotherapist, the hardest part about quitting smoking is finding your inspiration. Once you’re determined, you can work together with your hypnotherapist so that your future never includes another cigarette.

Whether or not you’ve tried other methods to quit smoking in the past, you can find fulfilling and permanent success in hypnosis.
