Most people do not like the first cigarette they smoke.
Smokers should ask themselves why they smoke and whether they truly enjoy it.
Smoking is not a habit. It is an addiction to nicotine, the world’s most powerful drug.
Advertising, movies and TV shows have sold smoking as glamorous and relaxing.
A heavy smoker may spend close to $100,000 on cigarettes over a lifetime.
People are more frightened of quitting than of smoking’s health risks.
Your health will be restored within weeks after quitting.
“Just one cigarette” causes quitters to resume smoking.
Smoking causes cancer, emphysema, high blood pressure, heart disease, shortness of breath and other serious conditions.
You can end your enslavement to smoking.
You only need to do two things to stop smoking:
Decide never to smoke again.
Celebrate and be happy.
Always keep in mind these 5 things when you decide to quit.
- You can do it – Smoking that next cigarette is entirely up to you.
- There is “nothing to give up” – You will actually gain health, wealth and happiness.
- One is too many – A single cigarette can rekindle the nicotine addiction.
- You’re an addict – Though admitting to an addiction may be unpleasant, you have a chemical dependency that will not cure itself until you stop feeding it.
- You’re there – Once you quit, you officially are a nonsmoker. Rejoice! The drug addiction will fade with each passing day.
