People come up with all sorts of excuses not to quit smoking. It seems that we’re not so afraid of all the truly horrible things that can happen to us if we continue on with this particular habit. For whatever reason, threats of cancer and other illnesses can’t seem to motivate some people to quit.
So let’s have a look at a reason that matters to everyone: sex drive.
You may not realise it, but the longer you smoke, the greater a toll smoking will take on your sex drive and sexual performance. This is especially true if you are a man, but women are affected just as much when one considers how it can affect their partners’ performance in the bedroom.
Why Smoking and Sex Don’t Mix
There have been numerous studies that link smoking to erectile dysfunction in men and delayed orgasm in women. In both cases, the biggest culprit is the restriction of blood vessel dilation and impeding of normal blood flow.
Healthy blood flow is vital for a man’s ability to achieve and maintain an erection and women need good blood flow to achieve the proper chemical responses necessary to reach orgasm. When these things are affected by the presence of nicotine in the bloodstream, performance is the first thing to go. Libido is rarely far behind.
Several years ago, the British Journal of Urology published a study wherein they observed 65 men who claimed to have a normal sex drive with no erectile issues. Of those men, 20 managed to give up cigarettes for the duration of the experiment. Those 20 men were observed to have a significantly higher response to sexual stimuli than those who continued smoking. In other words, ditching the cigarettes had an almost immediate affect on their libidos.
No Respecter of Age
The affect of smoking on sex drive can present with subtle to increasingly noticeable changes in people of any age, particularly in men. Just because you are young and strong does not mean that cigarettes aren’t already taking their toll on you. It’s the proverbial frog in the frying pan – the effects may be subtle but they increase over time and do damage without you even noticing at first.
The good news is that all of this is reversible and preventable if you simply commit to quitting and do so immediately. Yes, it is possible to do just that and I can show you how.
The Hypnosis Solution
I work with people throughout Australia who are serious about quitting but have not had success with the methods they have tried on their own. Cigarette smoking is an addiction. I deal with the addiction at the subconscious level, creating an environment for your brain to instantly re-learn how to manage the body without the constant influx of nicotine. This allows my clients to quit almost immediately and without any adverse withdrawal effects.
Hypnosis works. I guarantee it and I stand behind that claim. I work with clients in-office, over the Internet using Skype, and via telephone.
