 Generel Reason to Quit Smoking

 Death– (Do you need a better reason?)

Smoking steals 5 million potential years of life from smokers every year.  Cigarettes are responsible for killing more than 400,000 Americans each year. On average, smokers die 14 years sooner than nonsmokers do.

 Reasons to Quit Smoking

·   The Cost – You currently spend over $1,000 /year for each pack that you smoke a day.

·   If you quit smoking, you’ll live longer than do people who continue to smoke.

·    Your risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, chronic lung diseases and respiratory illnesses will decrease.

·    You’ll feel better, have fewer health complaints and have reduced rates of bronchitis and pneumonia.

·     You’ll experience less aging and wrinkling of your skin.

·     Women who quit smoking before they become pregnant reduce their risk of having a miscarriage, having a baby with low birth weight or having their newborn die of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

·     After you’re smoke-free for 15 years, your risk of death is the same as a nonsmoker’s. If you stop before you’re 50, your risk of dying over the next 15 years decreases by 50%.

·     Though your lungs do not repair themselves from the emphysema damage done by smoking, you will only lose lung function at the normal rate of growing older instead of the accelerated rate caused by smoking.

·     You will stop poisoning your loved ones, co-workers and other “innocent bystanders”.

·     The pure unadulterated feeling of finally being free of those cancer sticks.

·     The self-respect you will gain by conquering this deadly habit.

·      The free time that you will gain throughout the day.
