With smoking cigarettes and using other tobacco products, such as chewing tobacco, comes a range of negative health effects, plus other downsides.
It is no surprise then that by giving up this habit your life will improve greatly. Some of the improvements that you can expect to see and experience are listed below.
Once you have stopped, the circulation of blood around your body improves within a space of between 2 and 12 weeks. This means that you are able to perform physical tasks, such as running, cycling, and walking, with greater ease. In addition to this, it will also provide your immune system with a boost, so that you are easier able to fight off colds, the flu and other coronaviruses. With more blood flowing throughout your body you will be less likely to experience headaches and will be less tired less often.
Again, because blood flow is increased then so is sensitivity in certain parts of the body. For men, they are able to get much harder and longer lasting erections as and when required. For women, they will have better orgasms and will find themselves being aroused much more easier. In addition to this, those people who do not smoke are said to be at least three times as attractive to potential partners than those who do.
Fifty percent of smokers die prematurely through diseases that are related to that habit. These include things such as chronic bronchitis, lung cancer, and heart disease. If you are a man and are able to quit smoking by the time that you get to thirty years of age then you can expect to add another ten years to your overall lifespan. For people who quit at sixty, three years are added to their life. This shows that it is never too late to give up and reap the benefits from doing so.
By giving up smoking not only will you cough much less but you will also find breathing that much easier also. This is because within the space of just 9 months your lung capacity will increase by as much as ten percent. For older people, this can have a serious impact on the quality of their life and may mean no more wheezing when walking up the stairs.
If you feel inspired yourself to quit using tobacco products altogether after reading all of these benefits and improvements then there is no better time to start than right now. There are a number of ways in which you can approach this; the most drastic is to quit using them completely by going cold turkey or you could use some sort of alternative in order to make the transition away from them that bit easier. What people use for this differs from person to person but range from things such as nicotine patches, CBD gummies, nicotine gum, vape pens, e cigarettes, and even chewing tobacco alternatives that do not actually contain any tobacco in them.
