Quit Smoking

Introduction

Of all the many things that a person can do to improve their health and longevity, with an added bonus of improvement in financial circumstance, quitting smoking has to be right near the top of the list.

People may start smoking for a few different reasons, but they remain smokers almost always for one reason alone – they are addicted. Like any addiction, there are both psychological and physiological aspects to tobacco dependency.

Those who have never smoked and can simply say “just stop smoking” may have no understanding of the effort required to overcome both the habit and the addiction, or the fear that breaking free may invoke.

There are many variables that will determine how difficult it will be to become a non-smoker, including gender, genetics and mental state. This means that there is no single solution that will work for every person, every time.

You may need to try different methods before you find one that works for you. Of course, the biggest determinant is an honest commitment to becoming a nonsmoker, rather than a half-hearted approach that can set you up for failure.

Even knowing that quitting smoking may not be an easy thing to do should not discourage smokers from taking the necessary steps to do so. The rewards are enormous. It is never too soon to reap the short and long-term health benefits rather than suffer from the consequences for the rest of your life.
