Do you know that smoking ruins not only your health but the other areas of your life too? This article will help you find out how exactly does smoking affects our lives - as well as offer 5 reasons to quit.
We know that smoking is a bad habit – and just as many other bad habits it is one that is quite hard to quit. However, it could be a bit easier when you know exactly how smoking damages your life and health.
So if you feel that you could use some reasons to make the process of quitting more bearable, here’s the ultimate list for you.
The decision to start smoking is your own and you’re the one responsible for its consequences. However, the people who surround you (be it your friends, your family, your partner or your flatmate) didn’t make the same decision as you – but they are still affected by it.
Various researches show that people, who’ve been in close contact with smokers, suffer the similar consequences as the ones that actually smoke (though the impact on them is obviously lesser). For example, children living in one apartment with smokers, are more susceptible to various infections and have more breathing and lung problems than the children who don’t live with people who smoke.
Smoking reduces the amount of oxygen the hemoglobin molecules carry through our body. This means that our blood vessels become noticeably smaller. This complicates the process of oxygen and hemoglobin reaching the tissues when necessary. Moreover, this results in smoker healing worse than the people who don’t smoke. Obviously, that could lead to quite bad consequences if you suddenly take an unexpected injury or will have to go through a surgery.
Do you know exactly how much money you spend on smoking every year? If you don’t settle with smoking one or two cigarettes per day, this sum is probably very big. That’s why quitting won’t only make you healthier but will help you to afford buying something you wanted to purchase for a long time. For example, it could be a new smartphone or a pair of expensive shoes.
Most of us know that smoking causes various lungs and breathing problems. However, not all know that it also affects our looks greatly: starting from the teeth that become yellow and ending with the skin that looks gray and unhealthy. It also makes our hair thinner as well as quickens the aging process. That’s why quitting would definitely make you look better.
Smoking is not only a bad habit – it is also a habit, which is disapproved more and more these days. Most of the public places starting from cafes and ending with cinemas don’t allow smoking. Moreover, people also react to smokers worse than before, knowing that smokers affect their health too.
If you decide to quit, you’ll not only save yourself from the stress of finding the nearest place where you could smoke. The people would look at you differently too.
As you see, smoking affects almost all areas of our lives. And that is the reason why quitting will definitely make your life better in so many ways. Of course, the process of quitting is hard, but its benefits are truly amazing. So why don’t you give it a try?
