Are you a smoker and wants to quit smoking once and for all?
I know it’s easy to make excuses like
" it helps me to relax and avoid stress"
Before I take you through those drivers that will help you quit smoking, just imagine every waking day, smelling the fresh air of the countryside, the warm breeze wafting you face and feeling alive. You pull on clean clothes and immediately smell their soft fragrance and what’s more you feel alive, invigorated ready for the day ahead. Relaxation now is easy that your health is fully restored.
Many smokers want to quit and yet they lack the motivation to do so. My motivation as a non-smoker who quit over 30 years ago is to help you find that motivation. Here are the top three drivers to help you find that motivation.
The Drivers to Quit Smoking
Reason #1: Prolong Life
Half of all long-term smokers die early from smoking-related diseases, including heart disease, lung cancer and chronic bronchitis. Men who quit smoking by 30, add 10 years to their life. People who kick the habit at 60 add three years to their life. Quitting not only adds years to your life, but it also greatly improves the chance of a disease-free, mobile, happier old age.
Reason #2: Better Breathing
People breathe more easily and cough less when they give up smoking because their lung capacity improves by up to 10% within nine months. In your 20s and 30s, the effect of smoking on your lung capacity may not be noticeable until you go for a run, but lung capacity naturally diminishes with age. In later years, having maximum lung capacity can mean the difference between having an active, healthy old age and wheezing when going for a walk or climbing the stairs.
Reason #3: Save Money
The price of Cigarette in the UK is escalating with the government increasing the taxes on tobacco each year in an effort to make people quit. If you are ’20 a day’ smoker based on the current price, you’re going to spend about £3,500 each year.
After quitting smoking your energy levels and circulation will increase within 2 to 12 weeks. Now if you are involved in any kind physical activity, including walking and running, it becomes much easier.
Quitting also boosts your immune system, making it easier to fight off colds and flu. The increase in oxygen in the body makes ex-smokers less tired and less likely to have headaches.
Your next Success Steps
I’m fortunate in that I quit in 1980 – just decided there and then that I no longer smoked and threw the last packet away and have never even been tempted since. However I know that many people struggle and so I have put together a unique training to help you get started.
