Why People Don't Stop Smoking?
When you smoke cigarettes and tobacco products you develop a nicotine addiction. Nicotine is a highly addictive substance that helps release chemicals that enhance a feeling of reward or satisfaction in your brain. Smokers generally use their “smoking break” to relax or de-stress. In actual fact they are placing their bodies under a great deal of stress dealing with the toxic substances inhaled into their bodies. Their blood pressure increases while trying to deliver depleted oxygenated blood around the body.
In a short time the smoker becomes programmed to satisfy nicotine cravings. Nicotine withdrawal symptoms can occur just a few hours apart in many instances. The average smoker will generally smoke a pack of 25 cigarettes each and every single day which equates to 175 cigarettes a week; or 9,100 per year. This is around $11,000 literally going up in smoke
There is generally a fear that if a person gives up smoking they’re going to give up some sort of pleasure; lose their comforter in times of stress; put on weight; can’t handle the cravings – and whatever other reason they can think of. In actual fact, there is so much to gain when you stop smoking for life. The major reasons are your health, fitness, money, family and even being more socially accepted.
HOW CAN I STOP SMOKING?
You can stop smoking for life but you must WANT to do it. Just not talk about it; not do it to please somebody else; not just put it off until tomorrow – but really deep down WANT to be rid of it for the rest of your life.
