Effects of Smoking

Why Smoking Is Bad For You

The facts and figures we hear each day on quitting smoking are often dressed up in financial figures, government policies and medical terminology. We can simplify the effects of smoking pretty quickly without digging into our medical dictionaries:

Smoking makes your breath stink and stains your teeth.

Smoking is not glamorous or tough. It's actually totally the opposite.

Smokers are twice as likely to have a heartattack as non-smokers.

Smokers are in the highest risk bracket of dying from a heart attack.

Smoking light cigarettes is not healthier. There are no healthy cigarettes.

Smokers are more likely to develop a whole spectrum of cancers.

Smoking massively reduces your fitness level.

Smoking reduces your ability to fight disease.

Smoking does not calm you down. It's a purely psychological effect.

Smoking 20 cigarettes a day for 15 years will cost you at least $65,000.

Smoking will kill you younger. The average smoker dies 15- 20 years earlier than they should.

We are all going to die some day. Do you really want to rush that day forward? Do you not value your family or life enough to stick around for another 15 - 20 years?

You Can't Ignore The Effects Of Smoking

You can take the facts and figures, medical reports and Surgeon General warnings and ignore them. They say ignorance is bliss and smokers generally live in their own little world where they're safe. They'll never get sick. It can never happen to them. They'll quit next week. Next month. Next year. Ignoring the fact that you're slowly killing yourself by poisoning your body with cigarettes is not going to make it go away.

Sit down and decide today. Get control of your life again. Quit smoking.
