Trust me, you doesn't have to spend a single penny to quit smoking. What you need a STRONG WILL POWER which only works rather than any thing else. Just be strong and also learn to say NO to smoking and move away if some one is smoking near you or just ask them politely not to smoke in front of you.
When you have urge to smoke, just keep yourself busy in watching television, reading magazines / news paper or any thing which you find interesting. Drink cold water and can use chewing gum.
Remember one thing... "There is nothing impossible if we have strong will power to reach our goals in life"
It affects health and obviously, smoking cigarettes is dangerous to your health. Not only its not good for you but for others too. Those who smokes are called SMOKERS and those who inhale are called PASSIVE SMOKERS.Passive or involuntary smoking occurs when the exhaled and ambient smoke from one person's cigarette is inhaled by other people. Passive smoking involves inhaling carcinogens, as well as other toxic components, that are present in secondhand tobacco smoke.
What is smoking?
Smoking is the inhalation of the smoke of burning tobacco encased in cigarettes, pipes, and cigars. Casual smoking is the act of smoking only occasionally, usually in a social situation or to relieve stress. A smoking habit is a physical addiction to tobacco products.
Everyone knows that smoking causes cancer, emphysema (breakdown of lung tissue), organ damage, and heart disease. It can shorten your life by 10 years or more; and that the habit can cost a smoker lots of money every year.
A cigarette contains acetylene (fuel used in welding), cyanide, nitrogen oxide, and carbon monoxide, all of which are harmful chemicals. These chemicals are also used as poison. Many of the chemicals in cigarettes are actually poisons that can kill in high enough doses. Nicotine, the most common ingredient in cigarettes, is more addictive than heroine and ranked nicotine ahead of alcohol and cocaine in terms of dependence. Nicotine triggers the smoker's brain to be more efficient in processing information. Furthermore, nicotine also reduces anxiety and induces euphoria. Researches have also shown that nicotine stimulates alertness and arousal, and sedation and relaxation based on the dose of nicotine intake. These effects of nicotine, though, do not outweigh the harmful effect of nicotine addiction, which is lung cancer, and possibly other ailments, which will all eventually lead to death.
Each time a smoker lights up, that single cigarette takes about 5 to 20 minutes off the person's life.
Smokers not only develop wrinkles and yellow teeth, they also lose bone density, which increases their risk of osteoporosis. Smokers also tend to be less active than nonsmokers because smoking affects lung power.
The consequences of smoking may seem very far off, but long-term health problems aren't the only hazard of smoking. Nicotine and the other toxins in cigarettes, cigars, and pipes can affect a person's body quickly.
Smokers experience many of these problems:
Bad skin. Because smoking restricts blood vessels, it can prevent oxygen and nutrients from getting to the skin — which is why smokers often appear pale and unhealthy. An Italian study also linked smoking to an increased risk of getting a type of skin rash called psoriasis.
Bad breath. Cigarettes leave smokers with a condition called halitosis, or persistent bad breath.
Bad-smelling hair and clothes . The smell of stale smoke tends to linger — not just on people's clothing, but on their hair, furniture, and cars. And it's often hard to get the smell of smoke out.
Reduced physical performance. People who smoke usually can't compete with nonsmoking peers because the physical effects of smoking (like rapid heartbeat, decreased circulation, and shortness of breath) impair sports performance.
Greater risk of injury and slower healing time. Smoking affects the body's ability to produce collagen, so common sports injuries, such as damage to tendons and ligaments, will heal more slowly in smokers than nonsmokers.
Increased risk of illness. Studies show that smokers get more colds, flu, bronchitis, and pneumonia than nonsmokers. And people with certain health conditions, like asthma, become more sick if they smoke (and often if they're just around people who smoke). Because teens who smoke as a way to manage weight often light up instead of eating, their bodies lack the nutrients they need to grow, develop, and fight off illness properly.
Staying smoke free will give you a whole lot more of everything — more energy, better performance, better looks, more money in your pocket, and, in the long run, more life to live!
So have a smoke free and healthy life and also encourage and teach others for the same so that may help few lives which gives you lots of blessings and happiness which can not be expressed in words!!!
Good luck !!!
