Smoking Stinks and Other Good Reasons to Quit
Everyone understands that smoking is a bad habit that is responsible for horrible diseases and numerous early deaths each year in this country, but there are so many other reasons to quit smoking.
Smoking is an expensive habit. Cigarettes cost on average about $5.00 a pack, so at that price, smoking one pack a day works out to $1,825 that literally goes up in smoke per year.
Smokers show it outside their body. They develop wrinkles around the mouth at an early age, their skin tone is usually sallow, and their fingernails get a yellow cast.
Smoking is a stinky habit. A smoker’s hair, clothing, house, car, and anything else they smoke in or around absorbs the smoke and then it all stinks too.
Smokers can mess up their sex life. Women who smoke may have abnormal estrogen levels and go through menopause earlier. Men can have severe problems with erectile dysfunction.
There are many reasons to quit smoking, but the detriment to a smoker’s health and the wellbeing of those around them is the main one. Smoking has also become socially unacceptable in nearly every public area across the country.
Quitting smoking is not easy, but it can actually reverse some of the bad health effects, and restore freer breathing in a short time. Smoking cessation programs are here to help kick the bad habit, and reduce some of the difficulties associated with quitting smoking.
