If you’ve ever tried to quit smoking, you know that quitting smoking can be a daunting task. There are painful physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms resulting from the now-absent — and once comforting — vice. In fact, giving up cigarettes is so difficult that about 90 percent of smokers who decide to quit eventually fail. Our free electronic cigarettes can help you get on track to quitting smoking once and for all. Today, we’re covering some of the best things about quitting smoking.
- Improved overall health is definitely the best thing about quitting smoking. Cancer isn’t the only health risk caused by long-term smoking. Smoking increases your risk of heart attack, stroke, and chronic respiratory conditions like asthma, bronchitis and emphysema. Luckily for smokers who decide to quit, the health of the body improves very quickly after a person stops smoking.
- The freedom from addiction is a wonderful thing. The nicotine in cigarettes is an extremely addictive substance. Smokers begin to enter nicotine withdrawal only 20 minutes after finishing a cigarette, and it takes about two and a half cigarettes before the average smoker has a full dose of nicotine. Those highly addictive properties explain why most smokers smoke regularly throughout the day, and why some smoke almost without stopping. With electronic cigarettes, you have the option to slowly decrease the amount of nicotine you take in so that you can gradually step down and quit smoking rather than quitting cold turkey.
- Your friends and family will thank you. Smokers are used to being told they should quit the habit by their non-smoking family and close friends. Quitting can mean a lot to a smoker’s spouse and children. But giving up cigarettes doesn’t only make loved ones happy; it can also improve their health.
