Why quitting smoking

  1. 1. ==== ====Discover why quitting smoking is the best thing you can do. quit now. ====Deep down, I think every smoker wishes they had never started. Its a dirty, expensive addictionthat robs them of both their health and their self-respect. Fortunately, even though it can bedifficult it is always possible to quit smoking.Some smokers say something like: "Why quit smoking now when Ive been doing it for so long?The damage is already done."Thats actually the addiction talking, or perhaps the persons fear of going through withdrawal. Ifits "too late", then theres no point in trying. The fact is that its never too late. As soon as a personquit smoking their state of well-being improves on many levels.We all know that carbon monoxide is a dangerous poison. If there is enough of it in a personssystem, it kills them by binding to the hemoglobin in the blood more strongly than oxygen can. Thisprevents the blood from carrying oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.There is carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke. Its only one of thousands of poisons in the smoke.Its presence is why smokers cant lie to insurance companies about their habit. Its easy tomeasure carbon monoxide levels in blood and the elevated levels of carbon monoxide in smokersgives them away.However, when a person stop smoking the body can clear the carbon monoxide very quickly. Itsgone in about a day. This means that within 24 hours of quitting an ex-smokers blood is carryingmore oxygen than it was the day before. Thats a quick improvement.Everyone knows that smoking increases the risk of heart attacks and lung cancer. Many peoplearent aware of how much of that increase risk is reversible. The ability of our bodies to heal andrecover is quite remarkable.A year after a person quits smoking, their risk of heart attack is half of what it wouldve been if theyhad continued to smoke. The risk continues to decrease after that.The risk of lung cancer also decreases significantly. While it never goes to zero (and for thatmatter, the risk of a lung cancer is never zero even someone who has never smoked), it steadilydecreases when a person stops smoking. 10 to 15 years after they quit, the risk isnt much higherthan it wouldve been if they hadnt smoked.Finances are another area that improves immediately when a person stop smoking. The cost of apack of cigarettes these days is astounding. The fact that smokers continue to pay it is proof of thestrength of the addiction.
  2. 2. Ive heard smokers say that they cant try some of the medication to stop smoking (such asChantrix) because its too expensive.This, to be blunt, is ludicrous. Taking the medication is cheaper than smoking cigarettes. Asidefrom that, people only take medication for relatively short time when they quit. After that, themoney saved from not buying cigarettes is pure profit.The same goes for the expense of other techniques, such as acupuncture or hypnosis, that asmoker might try to help them kick the habit. They more than pay for themselves in the long run.There are some other answers to the question "Why quit smoking" that may surprise you.
