5 Reasons to Quit Smoking

September 14th, 2009 · No Comments

First off, think about this message from Yul Brynner (famous actor) recorded in January 1985, after he was diagnosed with lung cancer: “Now that I’m gone, I tell you: Don’t smoke, whatever you do, just don’t smoke. If I could take back that smoking we wouldn’t be talking about any cancer. I’m convinced of that.”

Now, here is five other reasons to think about:

1. Money – The cost of smoking adds up. Not only does smoking take money out of your pocket, but it contributes to higher health cost. It is well known that smoking and secondhand smoke lead to heart disease, strokes, cancer, lung disease and vascular disease. On the average, smokers spend approximately $1600/year on cigarettes. Consider the savings you will be making by quitting.

2. Life Expectancy – Smoking can take years off of one’s life literally. Also, smoking causes deep wrinkles that make you look older. By quitting smoking, your skin will be smoother and less chance of wrinkling.

3. Clean Air – smoking makes your clothes and hair reek of tobacco. Nonsmokers who are in the company of smokers are not safe either, since they are being subjected to secondhand smoke. Secondhand smoke is associated with lung cancer, heart disease and stroke. It also can increase the risk of dementia by as much as 44 percent. Parents who smoke should seriously consider the risks of secondhand smoke exposure they are subjecting their children to in the home, car or other surrounding environments. Consider how much fresher your home will smell, your clothes, hair and even the car.

4. Healthier Teeth – Consider that smoking can cause gum disease, tooth decay, not to mention sour breath. Quitting will mean whiter teeth, sweeter breath and less chance of developing gum disease or tooth decay. As a bonus you will even notice that your sense of taste will be keener.

5. Pets – Studies show that secondhand smoke can raise your pet’s risk of certain cancers and respiratory problems. A dog’s breathing can be affected by the carcinogens as well as a cat who is grooming (licking) its fur coat.
