Quitting smoking - some things to consider

If you continue to breathe with the white wand, you can expect an early and probably painful death.

Smoking increases the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It makes the heart beat faster, but less oxygen is available due to the transfer of carbon monoxide. It raises blood pressure and increases the formation of blood clots. You may have cancer of the lungs, intestines, esophagus, larynx and pancreas. It can cause vascular and fundus degeneration, atherosclerosis, coronary thrombosis, ulcers and impotence. Add to this yellow teeth, bad breath and leathery, heavily wrinkled skin.

Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death and illness in the United States. It kills about 438,000 people a year in the United States and about 114,000 people in the UK. Even passive smoking causes death and respiratory illnesses such as bronchitis and pneumonia.
The only thing you get for your money is a few good feelings, and they’re really just recording interruptions.

So if you are aware of all that smoking can do for you, and you have decided to quit, then what? You threw away all your tobacco and put the ashtrays in the cupboard, and now you feel like you need tobacco because you have a headache or nausea. These are withdrawal symptoms; some catch them badly, others pass quickly. Many symptoms disappear within a few days. Most will disappear within three weeks. Drinking plenty of water and fruit juice will help.

The real difficulty in quitting smoking glo online store is the habit itself. If you’re trying to be non-smoker in the same environment you smoked before, resisting takes a tremendous amount of effort and can strike you quickly. The trick is to change as many smoking habits as possible. If you have a craving for a bar or pub, avoid these places and try new places. If a cup of coffee cannot be thought of without tobacco, replace it with another drink. Try not to repeat smokers so you are more likely to succeed.
