quit smoking, smokingIsn't Your Life Worth It?

There are different kinds of gifts. But none is as valuable as the gift of Life itself.

When you are born, you come to life. But when you smoke cigarettes and you quit smoking, you literally regain your life back, and your body knows how to thank you for doing that.

Have you wondered what will happen to you after giving up cigarette smoking?

Scientific studies on people who regularly smoked about a pack a day, have shown the following progressive effects of quitting smoking:

After 20 minutes:

After 10 hours:

The level of carbon monoxide becomes half after 10 hours of giving up smoking. It is one of the major pollutants that produce ill effects on cognitive skills and health. Oxygen is one of the most vital substances necessary for survival. High level of carbon monoxide decreases intake of blood from lungs generating serious problems.

You will increase your energy levels by smoothing the passage of oxygen as you lessen the level of carbon monoxide in your blood stream by quitting smoking.

After 24 hours:

Willpower boosts and exercise and performance fatigue decreases after 24 hours of quitting. You will feel a sensation of joy wellbeing and accomplishment.

After 48 hours:

Two whole days without a cigarette is the best proof that you can quit. If you did it for 48 hours, you can do it forever. For most people this is invigorating and empowering. However, since the body is starting to detoxify, you might experience some minor side effects such as headache and phlegm. Don’t be discouraged if it happens to you.  It means that your self defense mechanism is working perfectly.
