Talking About Quitting Smoking And Overall Health
Quitting smoking may just be one of the most difficult endeavors known to mankind. In one sense, it seems difficult to comprehend that a person would want to inhale some of the dirtiest, most foul and disease causing substances known to science. It is no secret that cigarette smoke is the direct cause of lung and other cancers, as well as heart attack and stroke.
The truth is that people actually enjoy smoking, which is not intellectually logical. But there is a very addictive substance in tobacco called nicotine, which is considered to be one of the most addictive substances in existence.
Add to that the psychological hold that a person’s smoking routines have when you consider the after meal smoke, when with other smokers, or just to “relax.” When a person tries to quit, these are every day occurrences that happen anyway for the most part, which makes the quitting experience even more difficult.
I was able to quit smoking cigarettes at age 24 by going cold turkey, and I went through a hard month and a half of tough encounters with myself and these events.
Many people find success in quitting with nicotine gum, patches and e-cigarettes. The sooner one can quit the better, because the body has a tendency to repair itself.
