Benefits from smoking cessation
Reduce disease risks
Smoking, or exposure to tobacco smoke, causes many types of cancer, heart dysfunctions, lung diseases, stroke, and more. If you quit smoking, you will improve your blood pressure and blood circulation, and improve your breathing and heart rates.
If you let your lungs breathe clean air, you will improve your chances against any possible cancer or stroke.
Smoking just one pack a day can cost hundreds of dollars a month.
Just by quitting you can save money and spend it on more important areas of your life. Do not let smoking prevent you and your family from having those things you need for a better life.
Restore your energy levels
Tobacco smoke prevents your lungs from functioning at full capacity. You will not have enough oxygen in your bloodstream to perform at your best and your body will be busy fighting all those harmful substances you inhaled. So, quitting will let your body heal from that damage and you will eventually restore your energy. Then it will be easier to perform your daily activities.
Decrease respiratory problems
While smoking, people develop respiratory issues like shortness of breath, coughing, and wheezing.
Once you stop smoking, these symptoms won't go away immediately, but they won't keep bothering you at the same rate.
Avoid risk for infertility
Women who smoke put the blessing of childbearing at risk, and they also put at risk the new life they are carrying. So by quitting, they are not only avoiding infertility but also protecting the health of their future baby.
Nicotine withdrawal may worsen your condition in many ways, like feeling stressed, angry, it may become harder to concentrate and think. So by quitting, you are going to feel better, you will have a better relationship with yourself, your family, and friends.
