Smoking Leads To A Shorter Life

Sounds like a dramatic news headline, but there is nothing dramatic or comical about it. Smoking certainly does kill people faster which is an awful situation.

Smoking Kills

This man died at age 47 from smoking.

Main Reason for Quitting Smoking

One of the main reasons to quit smoking if you have a tobacco habit is you will feel an enormous relief for quitting as you will start to build your life expectancy. Let’s take a look at some of the ways in which smoking affects your life expectancy so that you can make the decision to change your habits today.

Other Reasons for Becoming a Non Smoker

  • We are all well aware that smoking leads to various serious health problems such as lung cancer, emphysema, and heart disease.
  • Smoking also weakens the immune systems and makes your body more prone to viral and bacterial infections.
  • All of these factors combined contribute to a shorter life expectancy for smokers. Experts estimate that a smokers’ life expectancy decreases by about 10 years in comparison with non-smokers.
  • This number is chilling when you think about it-ten years less to enjoy your family, friends, hobbies, and anything else you cherish about your life. The good news is, quitting smoking will put you back on the track to health and a longer life. The sooner you quit smoking, the sooner you begin to reduce the harmful effects of tobacco so that you can rebuild your life expectancy. This is particularly true if you are a young smoker: according to a study published in the British Medical Journal, smokers who quit before the age of 30 eventually have the same life expectancy of non-smokers. This statistic provides an excellent incentive to quit smoking now, especially if you are young.

There will always be skeptics concerning the dramatic impact smoking has on your life expectancy because there will always be exceptions. There are people who have smoked a pack a day for 50 years and never develop one cancerous cell. Then there are people who are health fanatics who die from some form of cancer when they are only 40. Don’t let the pro-smoking cynics fool you. The aforementioned anomalies are smoke screened (no pun intended) used to cloud out the fact that smoking is extremely and reliably hazardous to your health. It will lead to health problems if you engage in it long-term.

If you want to avoid decreasing your life expectancy, then perhaps it is time to consider the option to quit smoking. There are many factors in life that can lead to an early death, so why willingly engage in increasing your risks? Smoking is a habit and you do have the power to quit. You may not have the power to control how long you live, but you do have the power to control your habits and avoid those that detract from your physical well-being.

This may sound harsh however there are a lot of people out there who love you and would like to see you quit and be around long term.

Harness the Power of Your Unconscious Mind, Quit Smoking for Good

Many people think that quitting smoking entails a mixture of nicotine patches and endless suffering and cigarette cravings. But, truthfully, quitting smoking doesn’t have to be so difficult (or painstaking) if you tap into the power of your unconscious mind.

Quitting with Hypnosis

Is smoking really an addiction?

Mainstream medicine tells you that smoking is an addiction to nicotine, but new research, conducted at Tel Aviv University, shows that smoking is actually a psychosocial habit. That is, you smoke because you are mentally—and not physically—dependent on cigarettes.

The conscious and unconscious mind

Being mentally dependent on cigarettes means that your unconscious mind is at work. The mind is divided into both the conscious and unconscious mind. The conscious mind is the awareness that we have of our thoughts and actions in daily life—what am I doing right now or what will I do tomorrow? The unconscious mind, on the other hand, stores our memories, emotions, thoughts and habits—what happened yesterday, or years ago, and how do I feel about it?

Most people begin smoking for a variety of psychological reasons that get lodged in the unconscious mind: relieving stress, easing of social anxiety, wanting to looking cool. In the past the army encouraged their troops to smoke as they said it would keep them calm. Cigarettes, then, become associated with certain psychosocial situations and needs and as a result, smoking becomes an unconscious habit.

When smoking becomes a habit

The best way to quit is to get to the root of the problem: your unconscious mind. In order to quit smoking, you need to change the unconscious messages that you tell yourself about smoking: that it will make you feel relaxed; that it will help you make friends; that it will make you look “cool” and popular.

The Power of Hypnosis

One way to change your unconscious beliefs is to harness the power of your unconscious mind through hypnotherapy. With the help of an experienced hypnotherapist, you can re-train your thoughts and beliefs so that they tell you a new set of messages: that you don’t like cigarettes, that you don’t need cigarettes, that you will never smoke again! Hypnotherapy helps you realize that your thoughts create your own reality and that you have the power to change and control them. So if you want to give up cigarettes—and really give them up for good—then take advantage of a quit smoking method like hypnotherapy and harness the power of your unconscious mind for positive changes. You are in charge of you!

Can Smoking Cause Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Can Quitting Smoking Cause Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Can Smoking Cause Irritable Bowel Syndrome Ambro / FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Many people fear quitting smoking for a variety of reasons. It will be too hard, it is impossible to quit, it will make socialising harder etc. However, many of the fears that people associate with quitting smoking are really just excuses; many people want to justify their habit by creating a litany of reasons why they can’t quit smoking.

What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

One such excuse that some people have come up with, but that is not grounded in truth, is that quitting smoking causes Irritable Bowel Syndrome. In fact, the reverse is true: smoking very often leads to a person developing IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Let’s take a closer look at IBS to understand what it is and its relationship to smoking.

IBS is an uncomfortable bowel disorder that comes with a variety of unpleasant symptoms:

  • Chronic abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Cramping
  • Bloating
  • Nausea

IBS is a gastrointestinal disorder and the medical community has not pin-pointed one cause of the disease. It seems to be the product of many different types of activities from poor diet to smoking. People who suffer from IBS are generally in a constant state of discomfort which can then cause them to suffer mood swings.

Smoking both contributes to the development of and irritates  cases of IBS.

This is because cigarette smoke irritates the valves connecting the esophagus and the stomach as well as aggravating the lining of the stomach. Tobacco smoke has been linked to acid reflux, indigestion and other gastrointestinal disorders like IBS, so it can definitively be labeled as a contributing factor to IBS and other digestive problems.

So why do people believe that quitting smoking causes IBS?

There are a variety of reasons and some make sense and some don’t. However, many people falsely believe that quitting cigarettes causes IBS because of the discomfort that is experienced by people immediately after they quit smoking.

Some people who quit smoking may experience some form of digestive discomfort as their body learns to re-adjust to life without cigarettes especially if they go cold turkey. Heartburn, indigestion, nausea, constipation—these are all possible side effects of quitting smoking. However, these problems were originally caused by the cigarettes.

If people begin to experience digestive problems for longer than several weeks, they might want to consider other aspects of their lifestyle—such as diet and exercise—as roots of the problem, and seek medical attention accordingly.

So the long and the short of it is: quitting smoking does not cause IBS. Smoking disturbs the body (and may be the direct cause of IBS itself) and when a person stops smoking, then the body is still off kilter and takes some time to adjust to life without tobacco smoke. It should be mentioned here that quitting smoking with hypnotherapy usually has the opposite effect with people experiencing a reduction in heartburn or indigestion and the energy kicks in around day 4.

To assist with quitting smoking, reach out to a hypnotherapist who will step you through an easy and relaxed session so you can become a non smoker.

Quit Smoking Inspiration

Such excitment at now being a non smoker

Happy man feeling free from the habit of smoking

Quitting a bad habit is one of the most difficult things to do, especially smoking. It is  a physically and mentally destructive habit that leaves its mark on all systems of the body. For you, quitting smoking may seem impossible. However, with the right tools, determination, and inspiration, you can quit without ever wanting a cigarette again.

However, you really need all of those three things: Determination, inspiration, and the right tools. Quit smoking inspiration comes from within, and the smoker must be driven in order to feel inspired. Maybe their family is worried about their physical or mental health. Maybe they have a family history of heart disease and don’t want to exacerbate their risk by smoking. If an addict doesn’t have the will to quit the habit, nothing will make them. While smoking is more of a habit than an addiction, it will still be fairly difficult for most people. For some, the will to quit might be sudden, and for some others it may be more gradual.

The Right Tools to Help You Quit

 Once you find your personal inspiration and determination to quit, it’s time to find the right tools to put you on the right track.

Remember: To quit, you have to be ready to quit. If you still want to smoke while you’re quitting, you are less likely to become a permanent non-smoker and more likely to cycle through relapses.

Frequently speaking with another person who has quit with hypnosis certainly is quit smoking inspiration. Mary went to see Maureen Hamilton (Hypnotherapist) to quit smoking. At the end of her session (only one) she went off a happy non-smoker. Two weeks later her son called and said, “You got Mum off cigarettes after smoking for 44 years. So I need to come and see you too.” This chap was working at the local station as a policeman.  Needless to say he also went off as a happy non-smoker. So if you’re ready and truly committed, then hypnosis will change your life so you too can be a non-smoker.

What can hypnosis do for you?

 Hypnosis is the most unique tool to help you quit smoking. It is the only one that can help you truly believe you are a non-smoker, rather than a smoker who is suppressing his or her cravings with medicated treatment. For hypnosis to be effective in terms of quitting smoking, you must first find an accredited hypnotist, and then you must trust them, and trust yourself, that the hypnosis will work.

What is the Process to Quit Smoking with a Hypnotherapist

Before you meet with the hypnotherapist, he or she may speak with you to try and gather more information, and to see if you’re uncomfortable or unsure of the process. It is their job to make sure everything goes smoothly!

By the time you first visit your hypnotherapist, you two should have an action plan all ready to go. Just like no two people are the same, no two smokers are the same. Each smoker’s experience with a hypnotherapist will be different than the next.

The importance of following up

 Once you become a non-smoker, you will have a period of adjustment, even just in terms of your lungs. In order to help you cope with this and keep you on track, you need to follow instructions about your care following your session. Only you can be in control once you become a non-smoker.

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.

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

Depressed man smoking cigarette

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.

Why Quit Smoking is Hard

Depressed as he would like to quit

Depressed man smoking cigarette because quit smoking is hard.

Habits are hard to break. Like biting your nails or twirling your hair, smoking is a habit that becomes a nearly unconscious reflex. As you develop a smoking habit, your mind associates having a cigarette with getting settled in your car, having your morning coffee, or walking out of the office at the end of a workday. It becomes a subconscious habit. Quitting smoking is hard because, by quitting, you are forcing yourself to remove a habit out of your daily mindset.

Once you are a smoker, you do not continue to smoke because you truly want or enjoy every cigarette. You continue to smoke because smoking controls your life. It is automatic. This is why quitting smoking is so hard, but, as long as you’re truly ready, quitting smoking doesn’t have to be impossible.

The problem with physical treatments

People wonder why quit smoking is hard. Many people turn to physical solutions to help them quit smoking, whether those are nicotine patches, gums, or electronic cigarettes. These can help curb physical cravings, but the mental urge is still there. While using these treatments, you are still a smoker. It is common for smokers who have used these to pick up smoking again, either in the middle of treatment or shortly after quitting. Especially if you turn to using electronic cigarettes, you are replacing one habit with another. If long-term or life-long quitting is your goal, you may be looking for other, more permanent solutions.

How hypnosis is unique

Hypnosis is different. A good hypnotherapist can make you into a permanent nonsmoker after just one session. For a hypnosis session to be successful, though, you must be completely prepared. Perhaps the hypnotherapist will provide materials to fill out, listen to, or read before your session. Think of why you want to quit, why you started smoking in the first place, and why you have or haven’t tried quitting previously. You cannot have doubts while going into your hypnotherapy session—you must trust your hypnotherapist, and you must truly believe you will be a nonsmoker at the end of the session. You may have outside motivators to help you quit smoking, whether that is your family, friends, job, etc., but the most essential thing you can bring to your hypnosis session is your want to quit.

After hypnosis: Being a nonsmoker

Being a nonsmoker, of course, has its perks. But after so many years of smoking, suddenly quitting after just one hypnotherapy session can come as a shock to the body, especially the lungs. After all, you’re used to taking more deep breaths from inhaling cigarette puffs as a smoker. After your hypnotherapy session, your hypnotherapist should advise you to frequently perform deep breathing exercises. There is still a buildup of tar and other harmful chemicals remaining in your lungs, so modified breathing technique is essential to getting healthy lungs back. Practice deep breathing exercises whenever you’d normally have a cigarette, or several times a day.

With other methods, quitting smoking is hard, but with hypnosis and the true want to be a nonsmoker, it is possible after just one session.

Is There a Cure for Skin Cancer?

Ambro / FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in humans, and it affects millions of people across the globe every year. This cancer is caused by over-exposure to the sun, radiation, carcinogens, and aging.

Types of Skin Cancer

There are three types: basal cell carcinoma, melanoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. All three pose a serious risk to your health, but melanoma is the most dangerous.

How Can Skin Cancer be Detected

Skin cancer is relatively easy to detect because it comes in the form of skin discoloration and abnormally colored or shaped moles; indeed, most skin cancer victims discover their condition on their own just by examining their skin (however, a diagnosis can only be made by a doctor).

Since many people are desperate to maintain their golden brown tans year in and year out, skin cancer remains a potent threat to public health because most people are not willing to take the link between sun exposure and UV rays and the development of skin cancer seriously. Tanning is in and trendy, and people don’t like going against the aesthetic curve. However, being an avid sun bather does not automatically lead to skin cancer, and it isn’t the only cause.

What Else Causes Skin Cancer

Skin cancer can also be caused by damaging free radicals from carcinogens and the unavoidable effects of ageing. In act some research is being done on the effect of high level in diets. Still, the best method of avoidance is to stay out of the sun or use only a strong sunscreen when out in the sun. Keep in mind that the decreasing ozone layer makes it more and more dangerous to soak up UV rays on the beach.

Is There a Cure for Skin Cancer?

As with all forms of cancer, everyone wants to know: Is there a cure for skin cancer? Last year, a study conducted in the UK by researchers from Rush University Medical School in Chicago showed that a vaccine developed was able to completely cure 16% of those who used it and who were infected with advanced melanoma. For the rest of the group, the vaccine greatly improved the user’s chance of remission. This does not definitively prove that skin cancer can always be cured, but it makes curing it an option. In addition to pharmaceutical cancers medication, there are many topical ointments that have been shown to relieve skins cancer.

Cymilium, an over the counter insect bite remedy, has been shown to improve it’s symptoms, and a variety of natural remedies such as aloe vera and vitamin D are also used. If you have skin cancer, any course of treatment you undertake should be at least discussed if not approved by a doctor. However whether you are interested in natural medicine or pharmaceutical-driven medicine, the chances of completely curing your cancer are slim, so in that sense, both sides of the medical aisle are worth a try.

Does Smoking Cause Skin Cancer?

One of the causes of skin cancer is poor lifestyle including a sugar rich diet and/or smoking. So for smoking, you may have tried many times to quit smoking and perhaps you have stopped. However after a time you became stressed or you were having a drink and thought you would just have one puff. That is waking up the habit!

Unfortunately when quitting smoking it is important to be focused on being a non smoker. So preparation is extremely important. Going cold turkey is painful and there is an emotional struggle. That’s because smoking is a habit and you are trying a break a habit built up over years and years. The unconscious mind is there to protect you emotionally as well as physically. So that habit is keeping you happy. So changing that habit is going against your unconscious mind making quitting very difficult. This is where hypnosis comes in. Hypnosis is an easy pleasant way to become a non smoker in just one session.

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.

How to Quit Smoking and Not Gain Weight

Businesswoman, now a non smoker and watching her weight

Businesswoman, now a non smoker and watching her weight

One of the many reasons smokers cling to their habit is because they believe that it is the perfect form of weight control. Unfortunately, this belief is not based in myth, but grounded in reality: smoking does cause weight loss.

How Does Smoking Help to Lose Weight

Nicotine acts as an appetite suppressant thus causing smokers to eat less. Additionally, cigarettes boost the body’s metabolic rate. Indeed, researchers estimate that smoker’s lose an extra 250 calories a day from the side effect of smoking alone.

The fact that smoking makes weight control easier is particularly problematic because it gives smokers an excuse to keep indulging in their toxic tobacco habit. Many smokers live in a world of denial, enjoying the short-term weight loss benefits of cigarettes without thinking about the long-term health damages of tobacco.

The cigarettes lead to weight loss dilemma which highlights the importance of smoking cessation assistance. Quitting smoking is not just a matter of getting rid of cigarettes. It requires a total lifestyle change. Smoking is a psycho-social habit, and along with the need for re-shaping attitudes towards cigarettes, people who quit smoking are also in need of re-shaping their approach to health and physical fitness.

Weight Gain is Not Always Associated with Quitting Smoking 

Quitting smoking does not equate to weight gain if the quitter in question is willing to create a balanced diet and exercise plan. This does not need to be complicated or difficult. Instead, people need to understand that weight management is basically built around the certain principles.

Stay Health and Eat super foods

Super foods include green vegetables, colorful vegetables, Omega-3 fatty fishes, lean proteins, legumes, brown rice, spices, herbs nuts and fruits. A diet fortified in these foods will keep a person’s body going strong (and will also mitigate the harmful effects of tobacco smoke) by way of a diversity of nutrients and antioxidants. Conversely, when people eat diets heavy in starches, processed junk food, sugar and unhealthy fats, weight gain becomes a major problem—with or without cigarettes.

Stay Healthy with Exercise

The second key principle of weight management is exercise. The body needs regular cardio activity such as walking, swimming, running, aerobics or cycling in order to keep the metabolism running, the muscles growing; exercise is also a weapon against mood disorders. Around Day 4 when the energy kicks, most people are greatly motivated to exercise.

Why do People Gain Weight When they Quit Smoking

When that energy kicks in on day 4, there are some people who ignore this burst of energy and they are the ones who put on weight. Add to that the fact they are probably not eating healthy and are more inclined to eat high levels of processed food.  When a person quits smoking they are certainly hungry as the body is craving healthy food.

How to Quit Smoking and Not Gain Weight

When the weight management pillars of super foods and exercise are combined, they keep the body in its optimal state. What many smokers who use cigarettes as a means of weight management don’t want to admit is that they don’t want to go through with creating a fully healthy lifestyle—that takes time and effort. It is easier to puff on a cigarette and keep eating unhealthy foods than it is to give up the habit and learn how to eat and exercise right. But this is a fatal excuse—habitual smoking can only lead to severe medical problems and even death. If people want to quit smoking and manage their weight, then they need to be ready to make the commitment to move their bodies and eat the right foods, In other words, they need to make the choice that is healthiest for their mind, body and spirit.

Pot Fries Your Brain: Stay Away From Marijuana

Stop smoking pot

Smoking Pot Damages both Physically and Mentally

Quitting smoking doesn’t just mean quitting cigarettes. If you smoke marijuana, then it is just as important for you to kick your smoking habit.

Why do People Still Smoke Pot after Quitting Cigarettes

Because marijuana is not physically as harmful as tobacco smoke, many people justify their marijuana habit as the healthier of the two. And thus they keep smoking pot. There are, however, two major mistakes being made here.

Impact of Marijuana on Your Physical Health

Intentionally inhaling smoke into the lungs is never healthy. Marijuana smoke still comes with a variety of chemicals and additives that can harm or irritate the lungs, particularly for people suffering from medical conditions like asthma and other chronic respiratory infections.

Impact of Marijuana on Your Mental Health

Marijuana is dangerous to your mental health. Smoking marijuana increases panic, paranoia, anxiety and depression. It leaves smokers floating in the smoke clouds of false euphoria only to come back to life on earth feeling less satisfied with reality. Furthermore, marijuana damages short-term memory and hinders the brain’s ability to learn and retain vital information.

Your life is not only dependent on the health of your physical body. Your life is dependent on the health of your mind. The physical and the psychological work together to create optimal health in human beings. If you avoid cigarettes, but smoke marijuana, then you are still harming one aspect of this two-fold system. The more marijuana you smoke, the more you fry your brain. The more you fry your brain, the worse you will feel about yourself and others. It is, indeed, a vicious cycle.

What Can I do to Stop Smoking Marijuana

If you feel like you have a pot smoking habit that is out of control, there are many ways that you can get help. One particularly useful method of pot smoking cessation is hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy will teach you to be more mindful, giving you the mental tools necessary to build healthy, constructive attitudes and beliefs towards life in general and yourself in particular. You don’t need pot. You don’t need to get high to feel good about yourself and the life you live. That power resides in your mind. All you need to do is learn to release it.
