Why should I quit smoking?
Even though it may seem like it, it is never too late to quit smoking. No matter what age you are, you will begin seeing significant changes in your health when you give up cigarettes.
Here are 7 ways in which quitting will positively impact your health:
1. Non-smokers live longer
NHS studies show that men who quit smoking before they are 30 add 10 years onto their life expectancy.
2. Your energy levels will increase
Within just 2-12 weeks of giving up smoking, your blood circulation will improve. As a result of this, your energy and oxygen levels will increase.
3. You will have whiter teeth, glowing skin and fresher breath
When you quit smoking, you will find that facial ageing will be slowed, and the natural glow of your skin will be restored. This is because you will start to regain nutrients, hydration and oxygen that smoking deprived you of. You will also notice that the stains on your teeth will fade, and your breath will become more fresh.
4. Breathing will become easier
Smoking significantly diminishes your lung capacity, leading to restricted breathing and frequent coughing. After just 9 months tobacco-free, you can improve your lung capacity by 10%.
Why not quit to stop breathing difficulties getting in your way?
5. Your taste and smell will improve
As the dulling effects of cigarette toxins dissipate, most people tend to notice that their taste and smell are heightened. As a result, your food will taste better, and the smells you love, such as incense, perfume, or your favourite meal, can be enjoyed fully.
6. Your fertility may improve
Quitting smoking impacts your ability to get pregnant directly. It can increase the potency of sperm, as well as improving the womb lining. It will also boost your chances of having a healthy baby.
7. Your loved ones will no longer be at risk
Last, but by no means least, is the significant improvement that quitting smoking can have on those around you. Inhalation of secondhand smoke has been found to increase a bystander’s risk of heart disease, cancer and strokes. Taking steps towards quitting can protect not only your own health, but that of your loved ones.
