Your Smoking Addiction Can Be Un Hooked And Un Trapped

Hooked,​ trapped,​ desperate—Oh these words are so heart wringing. Are those that utter these soul-searing cries being tied up by their thumbs? or​ have they fallen down an​ old mine shaft?

Well,​ umm,​ no,​ they have… well they have made a​ decision to​ become hooked,​ trapped and desperate.

See the​ news blog tumbling out... Scottish smokers,​ hooked on​ their smoking addiction have vowed to​ fight the​ smoking bans.

Read the​ Press Release from the​ pharmaceutical company announcing… Smokers trapped by their smoking addiction are offered a​ new drug.

Hear the​ media babbling… Britney Spears' man is​ desperate to​ quit smoking for the​ sake of​ their children.

I bet if​ you are a​ smoker,​ you don't really use these strong words… more like,​ "I'd really like to​ quit,​ but I enjoy smoking,​ or,​ I've tried to​ quit but it's too hard,​ or,​ I want to​ quit,​ but I'm so addicted I don't think I can,​ or,​ I'm too scared,​ what if…" and so on.

Your Last Resort Stop Smoking Pill

As we​ always see on​ cigarette packs,​ "Cigarette smoking is​ dangerous to​ your health." This is​ a​ notice that is​ commonly disregarded by smokers. Without even reading this notice,​ they just tear open the​ cigarette pack,​ grab a​ stick,​ and light it​ as​ if​ they don’t want to​ see the​ glaring truth in​ front of​ it. Unfortunately,​ the​ warning stated on​ this package is​ very true. Cigarette smoking is​ one of​ the​ leading causes of​ death. as​ a​ matter of​ fact,​ 440,​000 people in​ the​ United States die each year because of​ illnesses caused by this bad habit.

Fortunately,​ a​ lot of​ people have become aware of​ what smoking can do to​ their health and have made attempts to​ quit. Unfortunately,​ because of​ a​ substance called nicotine that is​ found in​ cigarettes,​ many people find it​ difficult to​ resist their cravings for the​ “high” that this substance can give. the​ good news is​ that there are now aids for smokers who want to​ quit. They can try che…

You Wont Get Fat When Stop Smoking If You Dont Overeat

Another frequently-repeated rationalization for the​ cigarette habit is: "I'd like to​ stop smoking,​ but every time I do I gain weight. And it's worse to​ be overweight than it​ is​ to​ smoke."

The good news is,​ not all smokers who stop smoking gain weight. Even if​ weight gain was inevitable,​ the​ average gain is​ only between 6 and 8 pounds. Not too much of​ a​ big deal now,​ isn't it?

It isn't the​ fact that a​ person has stopped smoking that may cause him to​ gain weight. It's the​ fact that he substitutes the​ habit of​ overeating for the​ habit of​ smoking.

In the​ belief that he needs something tangible to​ relax tension (which he previously achieved by the​ mechanical movements of​ lighting a​ cigarette) a​ "reformed addict" may take to​ eating candy bars or​ nibbling on​ sweets . . . something to​ do,​ anything to​ do,​ in​ other words,​ to​ take his mind away from the​ pressing problems,​ and to​ get back some of​ those old,​ familiar …

Why You Should Quit Smoking

Smoking is​ a​ highly additive habit,​ and most people who smoke find it​ very difficult to​ quit. the​ reason that it​ is​ so difficult to​ quit smoking is​ that the​ addiction is​ multifaceted: not only is​ there a​ physical addiction to​ the​ nicotine,​ but there is​ also a​ strong psychological component to​ the​ addiction as​ cigarettes are both legal and in​ many situations socially acceptable.

One of​ the​ greatest indicators as​ to​ weather your attempt to​ quit smoking will be successful is​ how mentally prepared you are. You have to​ truly want to​ quit in​ order to​ be successful,​ and if​ you try to​ quit without this mindset it​ is​ unlikely that it​ will work. a​ good way to​ motivate yourself - to​ get yourself to​ a​ point where you really and truly want to​ quit smoking - is​ to​ think of​ the​ health risks involved,​ and the​ many benefits of​ quitting.

The health risks associated with smoking are well known,​ but if​ you are trying to​ quit it​ is​ a​ good idea to​ re…

Why Should I Quit Smoking

Why should you quit smoking? Ah let me count the​ ways. Perhaps the​ better question by far is​ why in​ hell wouldn't you quit smoking?

Lung cancer directly caused by smoking surpassed all other causes of​ death in​ the​ 1950's and has been (though having slowly declined from that peak) ever since. And this is​ just talking about death. Morbidity (not mortality) caused by smoking is​ a​ 60 billion dollar industry in​ direct costs associated with the​ health care needed for smokers. That is​ one heck of​ a​ lot of​ misery! This figure doesn't even count all of​ the​ indirect costs including loss of​ man hours both related to​ smoking breaks and sick days as​ well as​ shorter life spans with more time spent on​ disability. Indirect costs also include the​ health of​ the​ people that live with the​ person that smokes who have statistically speaking several times more use of​ healthcare dollars than the​ average non-smoker living in​ a​ non-smoking environment. So yeah,​ the​ b…

Why Quit Smoking

Smoking is​ generally one of​ the​ known forms of​ recreational drug use in​ today’s society. According to​ statistics,​ millions of​ people worldwide are addicted to​ tobacco smoking. While there are less-used drugs for smoking like opium and cannabis,​ there are also different types of​ hard drugs and substances that are patronized by some individuals such as​ crack cocaine and heroin.

Due to​ the​ fact that smoking is​ one of​ the​ most famous and earliest forms of​ vice,​ it​ somehow established symbolisms in​ the​ society. For instance,​ some people associate smoking to​ insensitivity and individuality characteristics. Smoking also somewhat portrays social structure,​ for it​ has long been part of​ the​ cultural ways and rituals of​ various social groups. Another known effect of​ smoking in​ the​ society is​ the​ formed connotation that it​ is​ the​ first step of​ an​ adolescent to​ adulthood. Some people even see smoking as​ a​ form of​ rebellion among teenagers who smoke.


Why Is Quitting Smoking So Hard

We all know that many smokers are aware of​ health risks that come along with smoking cigarettes. we​ also know that that some of​ them are seeking support and help for their habit. I don’t want you to​ understand me as​ some kind of​ a​ guru who is​ making smart statements on​ how to​ quit smoking cold turkey in​ 15 hours for free. No no.

My idea for smoking cigarettes is​ very similar to​ yours. You see,​ I’m aware that smoking is​ a​ nice hobby,​ in​ fact it’s irreplaceable,​ it​ can be your best friend,​ so why quit smoking anyway?

Smoking cigarettes is​ part of​ you,​ of​ your personality,​ of​ your everyday life. I know your questions,​ the​ most obvious are: how can I gather strength to​ find a​ way to​ quit smoking? am I a​ person who can stop smoking cold turkey?,​ am I missing something,​ are there any smoking cessation methods that I don’t understand?

Now let me ask you a​ question but please think thoroughly. Can you not think of​ a​ blue color? Don’t think of​ a​ blue colo…

Why Is It Hard To Quit Smoking

Smoking is​ emerging to​ be one of​ the​ major causes of​ death in​ the​ modern world. This is​ attributed to​ the​ growing consumers of​ tobacco. Tobacco is​ responsible for the​ death of​ 1 in​ 10 adults all over the​ world,​ which translates to​ around 5 million deaths every year. it​ is​ because of​ this fact that cigarette smoking is​ now a​ public health priority.

Smoking poses dangers directly and indirectly to​ the​ public. an​ indirect public health concern that cigarettes may pose is​ accidental fire. as​ for the​ health risks in​ smoking tobacco,​ the​ disease mainly strikes the​ cardiovascular system,​ resulting to​ heart attack,​ respiratory tract diseases,​ and even cancer.

In spite of​ these risks,​ the​ number of​ cigarette smokers all other the​ world has not dropped considerably. Though several smokers claim to​ have been meaning to​ quit this habit,​ they just find it​ so difficult. the​ fact is​ that after smoking for quite sometime,​ quitting smoking will prove …

Why Is It Difficult To Stop Smoking

Why stop smoking? Some people stop smoking as​ they cannot afford it​ anymore. Some quit it​ as​ a​ precautionary measure looking at​ their degrading health. People who overlook the​ hazardous effects of​ smoking and continue smoking pay a​ heavy price for it. Every year we​ hear about deaths caused by smoking and the​ death rate is​ increasing every year. People don't want to​ understand and they pay for it. Even a​ packet of​ cigarette carries a​ tag saying smoking is​ injurious to​ health but still we​ do not want to​ accept this harsh reality.

The withdrawal symptoms are quite well known. For example: craving for few weeks. You always relied on​ a​ cigarette when under pressure or​ in​ a​ tense situation. With nicotine cravings and such mindset,​ even the​ most determined people loose their way and again start smoking.

It is​ perhaps not the​ chemicals alone that make it​ difficult to​ stop smoking,​ or​ for that matter,​ any other drug. the​ external pressure can get to​ anyone…

Why Do Some Fail To Quit Smoking

Most smokers,​ when you ask them,​ will claim that even though they smoke everyday,​ they really do want to​ quit smoking. However,​ the​ number one reason some smokers don't quit is​ because deep down inside,​ they really do not want to​ quit at​ all. Nicotine is​ an​ addictive drug,​ simple as​ that. And the​ body,​ once introduced to​ high amounts of​ it​ over a​ period of​ time,​ can't seem to​ function without it. Quitting smoking is​ hard,​ but the​ truth of​ the​ matter is​ that if​ you go 48 hours without a​ cigarette,​ the​ nicotine in​ your body is​ then gone. After the​ first 48 hours,​ if​ a​ smoker wants another cigarette,​ it​ is​ possibly for reasons other than a​ nicotine addiction.

So what could those reasons be? Well many people give the​ reason that smoking gives them energy. This can be why it​ is​ so hard to​ quit smoking. in​ a​ way,​ this is​ true,​ because smoking speeds your heart rate up. But that is​ like saying running from a​ bear is​ good for you …

When Quitting Smoking Leads To Nicotine Gum Addiction

People who are trying to​ quit smoking cigarettes use nicotine chewing gum. it​ is​ a​ substitute for oral activity and provides a​ source of​ nicotine that reduces the​ withdrawal symptoms experienced when smoking is​ stopped. However,​ some people who have successfully stopped their smoking habit are turning out to​ be addicted to​ the​ nicotine gum itself.
We don't have to​ fully understand all the​ hazards that smoking cigarette brings just for us to​ realize that indeed we​ need to​ quit the​ habit. And those in​ the​ know say that cigarette smoke has over 4000 chemicals in​ it,​ 40 of​ which are known carcinogens. On top of​ that,​ at​ least 200 of​ those chemicals are flat out poisonous. Inhaling second hand smoke kills,​ that is​ why smokers are in​ greater risk of​ its hazardous effects because they breathe in​ both mainstream and sidestream smoke. And while cigarette smoke is​ worse than nicotine in​ itself,​ it​ does not discount the​ fact that nicotine is​ a​ harmful …

What You Need To Know About Smoking

Cigarette boxes always state: “Cigarette smoking is​ dangerous to​ your health” at​ the​ back of​ the​ boxes,​ or​ at​ the​ end of​ their commercial ads. But do people really heed these government warnings? Do people really understand what smoking does to​ them?

In the​ United States,​ an​ approximate of​ 25.1 million men and 20.9 million women are smokers. it​ is​ quite alarming to​ know that quite a​ huge chunk of​ the​ smoking population belongs to​ a​ younger age group. Almost twenty-seven percent of​ smokers are between the​ ages of​ eighteen and twenty-four. a​ recent survey showed that almost twenty-three percent of​ high school students were current smokers,​ and that most of​ these high school smokers were White and Hispanic students.

A cigarette is​ made out of​ cured and finely cut tobacco leaves and reconstituted tobacco combined with certain additives rolled and stuffed into a​ paper cylinder. the​ act of​ lighting a​ cigarette to​ make for the​ purpose of​ …

Why People Smoke Cigarettes

According to​ Ernest Dichter,​ author of​ “The Psychology of​ Everyday Living”,​ smoking is​ as​ much a​ psychological pleasure as​ it​ is​ a​ physiological satisfaction. People reasoned that they are after the​ sense of​ satisfaction they get from a​ cigarette that they can't get from anything else.

He believes that the​ nature of​ this psychological pleasure can be traced to​ the​ universal desire for self-expression. “None of​ us ever completely outgrows his childhood. we​ are constantly hunting for the​ carefree enjoyment we​ knew as​ children. as​ we​ …

People who are either obese or​ smoking,​ even both are growing at​ a​ very alarming rate. While more and more people are suffering from the​ various diseases and complications that can be brought about by obesity and cigarette smoking,​ it’s still frustrating for health advocates how some people can still not care about how damaging their situation is​ to​ their health and well-being.

This is​ because doctors believe that the​ problem brought about by tobacco is​ actually the​ most preventable cause of​ death in​ the​ United States while obesity is​ just in​ a​ close second place even though deaths caused by being obese is​ severely alarming.

However,​ a​ lot of​ people in​ America believe that even though there are a​ lot of​ heav…
