Freedom from nicotine addiction what does it imply

  1. 1. Freedom from NicotineAddiction- What Does It Imply? By
  2. 2. Introduction• Freedom from nicotine addiction means a lot to ex-smokers. It means improved finances, sound physical health and an attractive personality, peace of mind, self confidence and time preservation.
  3. 3. Improved Finances• Smokers spend a lot of money to satisfy their smoking urges. Cigarettes in the United States are at an all time high ranging from $5.50 a pack to $11.35 a pack (depending on the state in which you reside). If you’re the type that smokes 2 packs a day, that is 14 packs a week and that amounts to roughly $4000 to $7000 a year. When you quit, your finances will improve as that money can be saved and spent on other productive ventures.
  4. 4. Peace of Mind• The ability to live without mentally obsessing over a habit is unquantifiable. It’s pure and sweet freedom. Smokers live in a sort of prison; the prison of constantly satisfying their addiction, craving, habit or urge, without considering the effect on their finances, health and family. At that point of obsession, nothing else matters; the nicotine must be supplied and delivered to the bloodstream, any how.
  5. 5. Peace of Mind(2)• Smokers go to great lengths to maintain their addiction. They cut short time with family and friends; miss out on amusement and leisure opportunities, just to get a smoke. They even sacrifice their physical health, self-esteem and a good portion of their income, too.• With permanent cessation, smokers get their life back; they become more in control of their life and decisions.
  6. 6. Sound Physical Health• Experts say the body improves the very minute smoking is ceased. Within minutes, they say your heart rate and blood pressure drop, just as the carbon monoxide level in your blood drops to normal. Coughing decreases substantially while blood flow improves; lung capacity strengthens while risk of cancer is cut in half.• Your overall health improves and you feel much better. Visits to the hospital also become a rarity.
  7. 7. An Attractive Personality• No longer do you have smelly fingers, teeth and breath; you smell better and people warm up to you better than when you were a smoker. If you’re single and looking for a date, quitting can greatly improve your chances with the opposite sex.
  8. 8. Time Preservation• Quitting helps you save time that can be productively utilized. The waste of time from smoking is enormous; if you smoke one pack to one pack and a half daily, you are wasting roughly 4 WEEKS of time every year engaged in the physical act of smoking.
  9. 9. Time Preservation(2)• Seriously, think about this for a moment. Wasting 4 weeks out of the 52 weeks yearly is insane. You are wasting your life away because you smoke. The lost time and productivity is just crazy.• You can actively shape your future when you buy this time back by quitting. For example, you can start a profitable business in your spare time, instead of wasting it on your smoking habit.
  10. 10. Social Liberty• Smoking is banned publicly in many states in the United States. As a result, smokers have to go outside to light up; this affects their relationship with others and cripples their social life in unimaginable ways.• Quitting makes this a thing of the past, giving you the ultimate freedom to relate socially with others without any fears or reservations.
  11. 11. Social Liberty(2)• THIS IS AWESOME. THIS IS UNQUANTIFIABLE.• The only way to really value the enormity of this is to go back to smoking, and realize how horrible you feel to have re-acquired all of the social discomfort that accompanies today’s smoking stigma.• Apparently, you don’t want to relapse just to value this freedom. Just enjoy your new social “liberty” after you kick the smoking habit, and be grateful that you no longer have to endure that horrible aspect of your life.
  12. 12. Self Confidence• Successful cessation boosts self confidence. The amount of self confidence that comes with quitting is amazing. It is better experienced than imagined. Quit today, you’ll experience self confidence beyond limits.
  13. 13. True Freedom: A State of the Mind• Before I conclude, let me say true freedom is a state of the mind. If you successfully want to quit this addiction and NEVER return to it weeks, months or years down the line, you must transform your personal relationship with smoking – you must alter what smoking means to you. You can refrain from smoking for years, but if you DO NOT modify the relationship you have with cigarettes or tobacco, the shackles will continue to hold you in an unyielding manner.
  14. 14. True Freedom(2)• This prompted our articles on shifting you thinking to stop smoking and reprogramming your mind for smoking cessation.• If you’re already on the road to permanent cessation, I strongly urge you to stay the path and do whatever it takes to reclaim your life. You definitely can get back your life. You don’t have to be a victim of your wrong choice many years ago.
  15. 15. Conclusion• Be long-suffering. Give yourself permission to heal from this dependence at your own rate and speed. Don’t put clogs in the wheel of your progress – let it occur as it naturally will. And when your freedom comes, it will be a valuable treasure that will alter your life, health, finances and relationships!• The freedom that comes from smoking cessation is pure, true and everlasting. You definitely don’t want to miss it for anything in the whole wide world! So, quit today and experience freedom without LIMITS!
