Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I’ve done it thousands of times.
Quitting smoking is one of the most important actions people can take to improve their health. This is true regardless of their age or how long they have been smoking.
Quitting smoking means breaking the cycle of addiction and essentially rewiring the brain to stop craving nicotine. To be successful, smokers that want to quit need to have a plan in place to beat cravings and triggers.
The benefits of quitting smoking begin in as little as 1 hour after the last cigarette. The sooner a smoker quits, the faster they will reduce their risk of cancer, heart and lung disease, and other conditions related to smoking.
20 Minutes After Quitting:
• Your heart rate drops to a normal level.
12 to 24 Hours After Quitting:
• The carbon monoxide level in your blood drops to normal.
• The risk of heart attack is significantly reduced
2 Weeks to 3 Months After Quitting:
• Your risk of having a heart attack begins to drop.
•Your lung function begins to improve.
5 to 15 Years After Quitting:
• Your risk of having a stroke is reduced to that of a nonsmoker's.
• Your risk of getting cancer of the mouth, throat, or esophagus is half that of a smoker's.
I know deciding to quit smoking it seems hard but it's not hard as you think you just have to take it one day at the time if i did it you also can do it i'm not different than you The reason i decided to quit is because i wanted to be incontrol of my thoughts
