Quit Smoking Despite The Challenges

Nov 20, 2007
Smoking, for most people who have already started the habit and are hesitant to let go, denies the fact that they are living an unhealthy lifestyle. Some nicotine addicts would claim that they are just smoking for the sake of letting go of stress, anxieties and other sorts of life-downers. Still, there are others; who claim that smoking and cigarettes are the two best things that ever happened in their lives. If you find yourself in either of the two situations, then it is just about time to start thinking of the facts and the negative implications of smoking.

And yes, reality does bite. The first major part of your body that gets all the negativity of smoking is your brain. If you still did not notice, anything that your body is capable of doing the right way comes from the command center - the brain. If there is anything that causes your brain from functioning well, it just plainly means that it is harmful to the body in general. The worse part about smoking is that it cripples your brain from working the way it should if you still refuse to quit smoking.

The number of young smokers today just prove to the rest of the world that smoking is the greatest generator of lung cancer. Smoking at a very young age increases the risk of a person acquiring lung cancer and can possibly lead to death before the age of 60. It has been studied that a tobacco, the main ingredient of cigarettes, has 43 elements that cause this deadly disease. The longer a person is exposed to it, the higher is the risk of falling prey under such deadly health condition.

Preventing yourself from developing lung cancer is possible. No regrets are guarantied to those who have whole-heartedly decided to quit smoking for good. If you love the life that you have and would like to continue living it, do what you can most to resist the addiction that is delivered by puffing nicotine in your body. Do yourself and your loved ones a favor, act now; quit smoking.

Smoking is very addictive. When it all comes down to it, quitting is the last thing you would want to do. It's simply because a moment without a cigarette stick in between your lips feels like a complete torment. When you are addicted, you are hooked for life. It's addicting influence lasts longer than the duration of a rocky marriage. But most smokers' reasons as to how difficult quitting smoking can become, are still considered insufficient because quitting can still be done. It can be solved no matter how smokers reason out.

All it takes is determination. Yes, quitting is difficult because aside from the health impact that it causes for the body to experience, constant craving for it is the main problem which keeps on coming back. A person will know that he is on the brink of quitting and smoking again when he suffers from withdrawal symptoms which happens differently to different people. A person may experience dizziness with headache, a dry throat and constant hunger on the process of withdrawing away from smoking and yet, another person may experience a completely different set of symptoms such as coughing, mouth sores and sleep disturbances. It never is the same for people who are trying to quit smoking but all who have had this experience get passed this stage.

Aside from the smoking withdrawal symptoms, the usual scenario happens. You start to tell yourself that you could go on your smoke-free days by just forgiving yourself after smoking one or maybe two sticks today. If it isn't called cheating then I don't know what it is but, in this case, depriving yourself of the goal that you really should attain for quitting smoking is another burden for you to bear.

Forgive yourself and don't think instantaneously that just because you couldn't get passed smoking for today, doesn't make you a smoker back from the start. The more you instigate that you shouldn't really be smoking even a stick of cigarette, the better your repulse is going to be against your cravings to smoke.
