All About Smoking
Little knowledge about this worldwide growing Addiction

Some people are under misconception and take smoking as a hobby. According to recent studies conducted by AMA, American Lung and Heart Associations and the American Cancer society smoking is one of the main causes of premature death. Smoking means you are giving to yourself a slow poison treatment. Smoking does not only meteorites the smoker’s health but it also affects the nearby standing person like your kids as their organs are on developing stage.

Smoking problem

It has become an accepted fact worldwide that cigarette smoking is the main agent of avoidable and premature death rate. It results in one in five deaths in United States. The data shows the deaths of over 470,000 people in U.S per year. Smoking acts as a catalyst in lung cancer, coronary heart diseases and chronic airway obstruction.

If we exclude adult deaths which is commonly a result of secondhand smoke, we see that both adult males and females have lost on an around 13 to 14 years of their life expectancy. If this pace of consummation of tobacco goes on then approximately 6.4 million children will loose their lives prematurely.

Economy has to endure the expenditure of over $100 billions in health care costs annually which results in loss of productivity including the death rate and medical expenses.

Smoking has direct relation to the sources causing the lung cancer, emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

The primary cause of the death in U.S is cardiovascular disease which is again partially an outcome of the tobacco use.

A survey shows the deaths of 65000 women who died of the lung cancer and 85000 men who died of lung and bronchus diseases. This shows that smoking is much injurious to health than the most people are aware about its harmful effects.
This data should act as a statuary warning for people but instead of becoming aware they get back to the same habit again.

Some people do want to quit smoking and some even tries to make an attempt which is good starting for a good cause as done in 2020 by many  people but to increase this figure it is essential that the victims should be encourage so that he may get counted in the list of successful.

Say No to Cigarette
Start Doing this as Soon As Possible

Smokers can give an endless list of excuses for smoking. Such as, some gets energy from smoking. Some look smart, when they smoke. Some are able to maintain their figure because of smoking. Some smokes, as they are lonely and sad. Some smoke to celebrate. This list of excuses never ends. There are some exceptional cases also. Such as, a woman was suffering from chest pain after quitting smoking. The chest pain was cured when she started smoking again.

However, none of the given excuses is logical. There is only one reason for smoking. It is the addiction.

The addiction is more psychological than physical. Smokers are actually addicted to those toxic chemical substances.

Nicotine is one of the major components of addiction in Cigarette smoking. The smoker is unable to get rid of this nicotine. The Nicotine is running in his blood level. When the level of Nicotine decreases in the blood, he shows certain nicotine withdrawal symptoms. The smoker smokes to cover up the deficiency of Nicotine in the blood level.

This nicotine withdrawal symptom clearly shows the cause for smoking relieving the stress.
Some physiological effects also occur due to stress, such as, the urine acidic.

Smoking helps in calming them down is a general misconception. It does not reduce their stress. On the contrary, it maintains the reducing level of nicotine in blood that make them relieved.

Similarly, consumption of Alcohol also enhances the level of smoking.

The Nicotine level drops and to compensate the dropping level smoker smokes a lot while drinking. Thus, it is important for the smoker to know the real cause for their smoking. It is not calming down their stress, but to maintain the level of poison in their body.

This thought will help the smoker to be an ex-smoker.

Once you have decided to quit smoking from that very day this poison will start reducing in your body. Make a promise not to touch it again. Within two weeks, this poisonous substance nicotine will leave your body. You will experience no nicotine withdrawal symptoms and would be able to live normally.

You will realize the benefits of quitting smoking, only after quitting it. All the advantages of smoking were nothing but misconceptions. You will get an independent feeling within you. Now, you are no longer addict of anything.

However, the ex-smokers have to take extra care. The moment they chew tobacco or taken a single puff, you will become nicotine addict again. So, keep distance from cigarette.

Smokers and Ex-smokers
Jump Out from this Addiction. Is For Your Life and Wellness

Smokers always feel that smoking helps them in getting rid from unhappiness, stress, boredom, anxiousness and loneliness. The life without a cigarette means complete boredom and frustration. Most of the smokers feel that they will put on weight after quitting cigarette. They can work faster and better after a puff of cigarette. While smoking they can be more sociable. Smoking is also a way to celebrate on special occasions.

Smokers feel that everything loses its charm without smoking. They are unable to enjoy social gathering, fun, games, drink, or even the company of their spouse. According to this data of smokers, smoking has so many great attributes.

However, one more data contradicts this data. In America, almost 33.000.000 Americans have quitted smoking and are leading a healthy life. A non-smoker would never be able to understand the great qualities of cigarette. However, the ex-smokers are well aware of these wonderful qualities. Still they have decided to quit. Are these 33.000.000 people mad?
These people are not mad, but they understood the disadvantages of smoking. They had also gone through the painful withdrawal symptoms of Nicotine. Still, they managed all the pain. They fought not only with the physical addiction, but also with the psychological addiction. The psychological addiction is a little tough, but they managed that too. They convinced themselves fully about the bad consequences of smoking.

This demands a lot of firm determination from their side and a positive approach.
These smokers must be appreciated for coming out from this addiction. The earlier phase of quitting makes smoker a little insecure. However, you must have confidence on yourself that it is possible to live without cigarettes.

Once come out of the tight and dangerous grip of smoking. You will understand that you were on a wrong track. You were living in the world of misconceptions.

After quitting smoking, they will realize that life without smoking is healthier, calmer and beautiful.

It depends on the ex-smoker, whether he/she wants to smoke again or not. Now, it demands a logical reasoning from you. However, many smokers again start smoking. The cause for their again taking up smoking is that they forgot the bad consequences of smoking. There is one more cause of taking up smoking again is the urge that they are unable to resist.

And this is what all of Us must control.

5 Benefits of Quitting Smoking
Let Us clear Your mind with Good Numbers!

The idea to stop smoking might seem really great, but what are you actually going to get out of the process?

For many people there are some benefits that are immediately obvious.  Of course, your clothes and house will smell a lot better, and if you have been a car smoker, your car will start to smell better as well.  However, if you dive beyond these shallow reasons, what can you really expect to gain by quitting?  The issues of money and even your health are far greater than any minor smells that cigarettes can give off.

One of the biggest benefits is the savings of money.

Consider that a one pack a day habit can easily rack up a bill of $35 a week, $150 a month and finally $1,825 in a year.  This adds up to an enormous amount that is really hard to play down.  It is important to be really honest with yourself about how much your cigarettes are costing you, if you are attempting to slash your budget, quitting smoking can go a very long way towards freeing up a lot of money.

While the money is obviously nice to save, there are huge benefits to your health as well.  For example, research tells us that as little as 20 minutes after you stop smoking you will be able to see a difference in your health.  If you consider that quitting smoking can help you reduce your risk of heart problems, stroke, high blood pressure, lung cancer, and even breathing complications you have just located a plethora of reasons why smoking really is good to avoid.  The research that tells us smoking is bad has proven that just a short period of time after quitting is able to reverse many of the harmful effects that cigarettes have caused, no matter how long you have been a smoker.

For example, if you quit smoking for a period of 5 years, you are no more at risk of a stroke than someone who has been a non-smoker for their entire life.

This is huge considering that those who smoke are considered at least twice as likely to suffer a stroke.  Additionally, if you quit for 15 years, you can enjoy the same risk of coronary heart disease as a non-smoker as well.  While it might seem strange to enjoy the risk for coronary heart disease, it is much better than actually having coronary heart disease.

Taking these small victories for your health is important since you will be able to significantly improve your quality of life.

Working to decide which benefits are the most motivation for you is not always easy.  You need to look at your lifestyle and determine what truly matters for you.  Not everyone is concerned about the health benefits, if you find yourself more concerned with the money then focus on what you can save.  If you are more determined to improve your health then focus your efforts on the health benefits that stopping smoking for good can really have for you.

Ultimately, the reason you choose to quit smoking is up to you, the way you do it will be based around your particular personality and smoking habits.

Knowing what your motivating factors are can go a long way towards boosting willpower though, which is always a helpful benefit no matter why you try to quit.
