Benefits of Quitting Smoking

Benefits of Quitting Smoking


The idea to stop smoking might seem really
great, but what are you actually going to
get out of the process? For many people there
are some benefits that are immediately obvious.
Of course, your clothes and house will smell
a lot better, and if you have been a car smoker,
your car will start to smell better as well.
However, if you dive beyond these shallow
reasons, what can you really expect to gain
by quitting? The issues of money and even
your health are far greater than any minor
smells that cigarettes can give off.
One of the biggest benefits is the savings
of money. Consider that a one pack a day habit
can easily rack up a bill of $35 a week, $150
a month and finally $1,825 in a year. This
adds up to an enormous amount that is really
hard to play down. It is important to be really
honest with yourself about how much your cigarettes
are costing you, if you are attempting to
slash your budget, quitting smoking can go
a very long way towards freeing up a lot of
money.
While the money is obviously nice to save,
there are huge benefits to your health as
well. For example, research tells us that
as little as 20 minutes after you stop smoking
you will be able to see a difference in your
health. If you consider that quitting smoking
can help you reduce your risk of heart problems,
stroke, high blood pressure, lung cancer,
and even breathing complications you have
just located a plethora of reasons why smoking
really is good to avoid. The research that
tells us smoking is bad has proven that just
a short period of time after quitting is able
to reverse many of the harmful effects that
cigarettes have caused, no matter how long
you have been a smoker.
For example, if you quit smoking for a period
of 5 years, you are no more at risk of a stroke
than someone who has been a non-smoker for
their entire life. This is huge considering
that those who smoke are considered at least
twice as likely to suffer a stroke. Additionally,
if you quit for 15 years, you can enjoy the
same risk of coronary heart disease as a non-smoker
as well. While it might seem strange to enjoy
the risk for coronary heart disease, it is
much better than actually having coronary
heart disease. Taking these small victories
for your health is important since you will
be able to significantly improve your quality
of life.
Working to decide which benefits are the most
motivation for you is not always easy. You
need to look at your lifestyle and determine
what truly matters for you. Not everyone is
concerned about the health benefits, if you
find yourself more concerned with the money
then focus on what you can save. If you are
more determined to improve your health then
focus your efforts on the health benefits
that stopping smoking for good can really
have for you. Ultimately, the reason you choose
to quit smoking is up to you, the way you
do it will be based around your particular
personality and smoking habits. Knowing what
your motivating factors are can go a long
way towards boosting willpower though, which
is always a helpful benefit no matter why
you try to quit.
