Ifyou still believe that smoking doesn’t cause your health harm than its time for you to return back to earth. Cigarette smoking is the major cause of preventable deaths in the world.
Statistics now tell us that people who smoke tend to die 5 to 8 years earlier than those who do not smoke.
Smokers and often people who live with smokers have nearly all the recorded cases of lung disease. The risk of developing kidney, bladder, cervical, mouth esophageal, pancreatic cancer is many times higher for people
who regularly expose themselves to cigarette smoke.
Smoking is the major cause of emphysema, a lung disease which is extremely debilitating. This disease slowly and painfully destroys a persons ability to breathe normally.
Smoking is especially hazardous for individuals with:
- Blood vessel disease
- High Blood Pressure
- Family History of any of the above diseases
- Diabetes Existing or family history of coronary disease
The good news however is that while quitting isn’t easy, the health rewards are worth the effort.
Even just 24 hours after your give up your body will be cleaned of much of the nicotine and other toxic chemicals.
Your cravings will start to slowly peater out and you will start to feel better. The benefits continue in your new smoke free environment. Your risk of having a heart attack decreases to that of a non-smoker in 3 to 5 years. After 10 years, your risk of lung cancer will be no greater than that of a person who has never smoked.
