Why Should I Quit Smoking?

There should only be one reason why you should want to quit smoking and that is your health. No other reason should be as important. Smoking is a horrible habit and yet it is not that easy to quit. They say that smoking is harder to quit then cocaine; nicotine is so addictive that some people may never be able to quit. Reasons for quitting may vary and you should make a list of the pros of smoking and the cons and see which one out weighs the other. The goal of the list is to show you that there are more cons than pros.

Smoking as you may know is the leading cause of diseases such as cancer and emphysema. Smoking is also related to other symptoms such as stress. Many people claim they reason they smoke is due to stress. Smoking no matter what great a shape you are in will hurt you in the long run. You will no longer have the stamina you once had. Even during the simplest activity you will become winded. You will be more prone to have bronchitis and others around you may end up with bronchitis because of the second hand smoke.

That leads us to our next point as to why you should quit smoking. Not only are you hurting yourself but you are also hurting other people around you. Studies have shown that people who have never smoked came down with lung cancer. Most people who smoke most often drink coffee. These two in combination with each other can cause some damage. There are some people who smoke only when they drink coffee, so they tend to drink coffee more as a way to explain why they smoke so much.

Other people like the idea of smoking with a group of people at work. Usually when people go outside to smoke they get together and socialize. You will hear a lot of people say I am a social smoker. Social smoker or someone who smokes all the time makes no difference. Once you get started it may be hard to stop. You want to quit for all the right reasons.

Why would you want to have yellow teeth or yellow skin? Smoking is actually known to cause anxiety. Breathing problems can occur as well. Plus think out how much money you will save by saving on smoking. Health wise, it is very important to quit while you can. There are so many techniques and methods that you can choose from. Unless you have the desire to quit smoking very badly, it is not recommended that you quit cold turkey.

Talk to your doctor about quitting smoking and see if there are any ideas that he can offer you. You don't have to quit smoking overnight and you should not expect to but over time you will see great changes in your health, everyday that you stop smoking.

  • Tobacco contains thousands of chemicals. Tar, from smoking a carcinogen (substance that causes cancer)and nicotine in cigarettes is addictive and increases cholesterol levels in your body, carbon monoxide from smoking reduces oxygen in the body, components of the gas and smoking particulates cause chronic lung disorders.I tried the nicotine chewing gum, but only semed to annoy my throat. Then the nicotine patch that didn´t seem to do anything. The best most easy way to quit smoking is with self hypnosis.The actual physical withdrawl effects of nicotine can be eased with natural hormone release and natural tranquilizers, produced by embedding hypnotic suggestions deep into the subconcious mind. The psychological coming down, can be eased with hypnotic suggestions. I stopped smoking 8 years ago by listening to a self hypnosis CD, and feel fantastic. There is not yet available on internet any such FREE download or Cd, but there is one site called free-self-hypnosis.org, and here there are many free hypnotic downloads made with expert inductions and very professional affirmations, all done with beautiful background music and sound effects, binaural beats, isochronic pulses,and shamanic rhythms. The dwnload for quitting smoking has to be opened with a code(after paying with Paypal) but here I will tell you the code: "shaman30" another site called trance-therapy.com uses the same code. I wish you good luck with stopping, it´s not easy but very very necessary.

  • I really enjoyed your post. I work as a hypnotherapist in Chicago and I often discuss some of the things you mentioned in this post about why people should quit. Quitting smoking is a lot more difficult then people think. With hypnosis, it's easy to get rid of the physical habits but the
    chemical addiction can be really difficult. I discuss it on my site at http://www.edgewaterhypnosis.com

    This is what I suggest people do when they really want to quit smoking-
    1. Do not drink coffee the very first thing in the morning. Have a large glass of water first! It's okay to have coffee, but not right away. The coffee basically works as a trigger with smoking.

    2. Jump in the shower and get out the door as soon as you can. The longer people sit around the house before work, the more nervous they become as they may be late for work. This is a huge factor.

    3. Reduce the stress in your life. If this means avoiding stressful situations such as arguing with co workers or family, do so! Simply avoid the situation.

    This was a very helpful post! Thank you or writing about this subject!

  • Each and every line that's written is worth its weight in gold. I am surprised that I can read even the very fresh stories on this blog. I am charmed by the color approach of the blog. It's excellent how the ads are associated and unobtrusive to the articles. Every article shown in the blog is clean, no garbage in terms of inappropriate photos or anything. I adore the way in which the author resolves the most troublesome of concepts easily. I personally do not figure anybody might have written it greater than this buddy. Enjoying the various fonts that are used, they add credential to the writings. The writer appears to sense the pulse of the industry. The passion with which the blogger writes about issues gets you provoked.
