Quitting a life-long habit is never easy, and studies have shown that quitting smoking is one of the hardest things you can do. Nicotine is a drug which is physically and psychologically addictive – which is why it is so difficult to give up smoking. However, it is not the nicotine that causes smoking-related diseases, but the 4000 other chemicals found in cigarettes which are the real danger. The benefits of quitting smoking are so great that the struggle to quit is well worth it, not only for you but for your loved ones. No matter how young or how old you are, it is NEVER too late to give up cigarettes. Your skin will look better, your clothes will smell better, you will have more money in your pocket, and your body will begin to repair itself ALMOST IMMEDIATELY. And your risk of illness decreases significantly – meaning your chances of developing cancer of the mouth, throat, bladder, stomach, cervix, kidney, pancreas, lungs, and also leukemia hugely decrease when you give up smoking. Smoking also more than doubles your risk of developing heart disease & having a stroke, while increasing your risk of dying from a heart attack by 70%.
