There is no sure-fire easy way to quit, but your pores to your pocketbook will thank you for saying goodbye to the 4000+ toxic chemicals and gases found in cigarettes, including arsenic, methane, ammonia, carbon monoxide and formaldehyde. However, willpower can overcome this highly addictive substance, with great rewards.
Have Healthier Heart, Lungs, Immune System, Teeth…
The list goes on and on! When smoke is inhaled, chemicals enter the bloodstream and affect the entire body. Smoking can cause serious medical conditions, from lung cancer, vocal cord polyps and degeneration, heart disease, systemic organ damage, emphysema, increased mucus production, and chronic bronchitis, to mention just a few.
Benefit Your Appearance
Besides internal damage, smoking takes a major toll on your looks. Heavy smokers have probably noted increased wrinkles, yellow fingers, and stained teeth. Perhaps also noticed but not automatically attributed to smoking include conditions such as psoriasis, thinning hair, increased stretch marks, and even warts! The reasoning is inconclusive, but studies have shown that smokers are nearly four times as likely to have genital warts than nonsmokers.
Help Pad Your Pockets
With the cost of cigarettes continually on the rise, consider the financial impact cutting down or completely could have on your bank account! Besides the actual cost of cigarettes, non-smokers also enjoy lower health, life and even car insurance premiums, in addition to less expenses for prescription medications and dental work, as non-smokers tend to have fewer medical problems than smokers.
Furthermore, your possessions will also be more valuable, from your home to furniture to cars, as smoke-tainted items often suffer from decreased resale value. The savings can be substantial, amounting to thousands of dollars over a smoker’s lifetime!
Natural Help to Quit
Natural remedies such as Avena sativa, Garcinia cambogia and Gotu Cola (Centella asiatica) can reduce nicotine cravings and balance mood to help promote success. Surround yourself with positive influences that will help you stay motivated. If at first you don’t succeed, don’t give up! A relapse (or two, or three) is normal, and your efforts will pay off in many ways if you stick with it!
