Oct 4, 2007
One of the hardest things to do is stop smoking cold turkey style. Personally its not one of the best methods. If you're looking to stop smoking maybe its not all about the technique, maybe its about personal reasons. It could be a close friend or family member that has had lung cancer that can scare you to stop smoking.

Sometimes if you see someone that you love or someone that you know suddenly come across lung cancer or any smoking related cancer it can really give you a big scare. It will either help you stop smoking of give you a good reason to start looking at stopping.

If you're like me and need facts along with a good reason to stop smoking then you should know a few things about your body and the effects prolong smoking can have on your body now and in the future.

Below is a few pointers on some health benefits for people who are planning to quit smoking and it applies to people of ALL ages. Did you know that if you quit smoking it can decrease your overall risk of death (including all possible causes) by almost 50% in 15 years? This is something that already scares me.

When you smoke the nicotine in gets into your blood and it causes your blood to thicken maybe even clot. If you stop smoking the risk of getting a heart attack is reduced by 50% and this is within a 24 hour period of quitting.

And the risk of having a stroke or a brian aneurysm is also decreased by a further 30% to 50% if you stop smoking right now.

Respiratory System Benefits

Your risk of getting lung cancer from prolong smoking is decreased by around 80% to 90% after 15 plus years from the day you quit. So this means that you chances of getting lung cancer is pretty high for the first 10 years. You'll also be glad to know if you stop smoking right now, three months from today your smokers' cough is most likely to disappear.

And if you stop smoking your lungs will stop ageing as fast. This is due to the sensitivity of your lungs and as you age so does your lungs however if you smoke a lot your chances of your lungs age faster is increased.

If you're serious to stop smoking then you'll need to have a really good reason or seek professional help.
