What’s the number one reason why you should Quit Smoking?
If I tell you that cigarettes can cause cancer, you’re not going to be surprised.
In fact, once you’re hooked it’s very difficult to maintain the fear factor necessary to make quitting a priority, even when you’ve been warned about cancer, asthma, emphysema…
You’ve heard it all before and you still smoke.
So, why else should you quit smoking?
It’s not about stubbornness, it’s not about not believing bad things can happen to you. It’s about the fact that you’re addicted and need to break free of the addiction.
Clearly, though, you will remain unfazed if I spout on and on about cancer because the urge to smoke, right now, outweighs the fear. So I won’t try to scare you.
Rather, I would just like to make you think if I can. There are a number of things that cigarette smoking can do to you and to the people around you that you probably haven’t considered or have only heard in passing. Let’s look at a few of them.
1. Alzheimer’s Disease
It has been clinically proven that, if you are predisposed to Alzheimer’s, smoking cigarettes speeds up the process. It accelerates mental decline in people whether they have the disease or not, but it contributes to the debilitating nature of Alzheimer’s a great deal.
Studies have shown that as we get older, the effect of smoking on our mental faculties increases. As senior citizens, the effect is FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT greater than it is in younger people. That is why it is imperative that you stop now, while you have all your faculties. As you get older, it gets harder and harder to fight off the effects.
If you are a woman who smokes or you live with a woman who smokes, consider this:
Smoking cigarettes increases the risk of developing Lupus. Conversely, quitting cuts the risk considerably. It’s one of the effects of smoking that is reversible.
Lupus is a chronic auto-immune disease that is prevalent in women. It causes pain, inflammation and damage to tissue throughout the body. Symptoms range from mild to severe and the disease is NOT exclusive to females. Smoking elevates the risk of developing Lupus in both men and women.
Smoking increases the risk and frequency of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or SIDS. This is particularly problematic for mothers who smoke during their pregnancies but studies have shown that, in certain cases, there are identifiable links between SIDS and parents who smoke. How many lives must be put at risk before quitting becomes a priority.
It’s Time to Quit Smoking!
Simply put, most of us have grown numb to the popular reasons why smoking is bad for us, but consider the consequences beyond cancer and emphysema. Consider them for yourself and for those you love.
Hypnosis has been shown over and over again to be an effective and immediate way to quit smoking and quit for good. My program has helped many people instantly break their addiction to nicotine and start on their way to a healthy, smoke-free life.
