10 reasons to quit today
The dangers of smoking in terms of your health are well known. It’s a gruesome and unrelenting cycle of damage: heart, lungs, immune system, eyes, mouth, fertility – you get the picture. Thats why we are here to tell you how you will see your health benefit when you stop smoking.
Over 60% of the UK’s current smokers want to quit, but with health authority budgets being cut all over the UK, the support available to help you is dwindling. If you’ve been thinking of quitting and are still waiting for official help, we’ve listed a quick breakdown of the benefits that you’ll start to immediately feel when you stub out that final ciggie. Think of this as 10 reasons why quitting is such a good idea.
After 1 hour (actually in about 20 minutes)
The heart rate drops and returns to normal. Blood pressure begins to drop, and circulation starts to improve.
After 12 hours
Your body starts to cleanse itself of the excess carbon monoxide you’ve been chugging down over the years. Your carbon monoxide levels start to return to normal, increasing your body’s oxygen levels at the same time.
After 1 day
The risk of heart attack begins to decrease as your blood pressure starts to get back to normal. As your oxygen levels rise you’ll probably find things like exercising or even walking up a flight of stairs a bit easier.
After 2 days
Your sense of smell starts to return and your taste buds start to wake up.
After 3 days
The nicotine levels in your body are by now seriously depleted. This is where you may start to get nicotine withdrawal. You’ll be moody and irritable (better share this list with your SO). You may get severe headaches and cravings. It’s your body readjusting to a life without fags.
At this point it may become too much and you might fall off the wagon. But push on, the results are definitely worth it.
After 1 month
Your lung function starts to improve. You’ll notice less coughing and shortness of breath. You’ll feel fitter and you may even feel like training for that half marathon.
After 1-3 months
Your circulation continues to improve.
After 9 months
By now, your lungs have significantly healed themselves. You’ll have noticed fewer coughs, colds and infections because your lungs are finally able to do their job properly.
After 1 year
Your risk of heart disease or other coronary disease has now halved.
After 5 years plus
After 5 years your risk of having a stroke is drastically reduced. After 10 years the risk of lung cancer is halved. From now on, your chances of developing long-term health problems are the same as any non-smoker.
Switching to e-cigarettes is a huge boost to your chances of success. You can still keep your hands and mouth busy, and still get a nicotine hit (if that’s what you want) while radically improving your overall health and appearance.
We’re on your side and we’re here to help. So do it. Stop smoking now.
