The Benefits of Quitting Smoking

According to the American Cancer Society these are the changes that take place in your body once you stop smoking

The Benefits of Quitting Smoking are Immediate!

Ingredients in a Cigarette

View the chart above to learn only some of the deadly ingredients a cigarette smoker ingests.  There is an additional list of 599 additives approved by the US Government for use in the manufacture of cigarettes; the average person has no knowledge of what these ingredients are, how to pronounce them or even how they affect the body.
The additive list of the most common cigarette ingredients are approved as additives for foods, but they were not tested by burning them, and it is the burning of many of these substances which changes their properties, often for the worse.  There are known carcinogens in mainstream smoke and second hand smoke.  Your smoking has been directly affecting your health and most likely harming the health of those close to you for many years.


The Dangers of Nicotine Addiction

Nicotine is one of over 4,000 toxic chemicals in a single cigarette. There are 69 ingredients that are proven to cause cancer. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, nicotine is one of the most frequently used addictive drugs, resulting in approximately 443,000 smoking related deaths in the United States each year. Cigarettes are easy to pick up, but quite difficult to put down. As of 2015, Cigarette smokers make up about 18.1% of the US population. Each year 35 million people make a serious attempt to quit smoking and 90% of them never achieve their goal due to nicotine's highly addictive nature.


To understand how nicotine affects the body you need to know that our lungs are lined with millions of tiny air sacs that can readily absorb nicotine. Inhalation of nicotine through a cigarette is such an efficient delivery system of the narcotic that it hits the smoker's brain within 7 seconds. When nicotine is first inhaled it briefly causes the smoker to feel awake and alert, this leads to a feeling of calmness and relaxation. This is due to an elevation in endorphin levels. Endorphins are the body's natural pain reducers and feel good neuro-chemicals. The rapid stimulation and over production of endorphins are what leads to the pleasure or rush which the smoker experiences when they first light up. A beginning smoker experiments with cigarettes and quickly there becomes a need for more nicotine, which is referred to as an increased tolerance. Once a person smokes for consecutive days, weeks, or month's nicotine addiction almost always occurs,
often leading the person to smoke for decades thereafter.
