New Year, New You! Part 2: Quit Smoking
We all know the dangers of smoking but here is a quick look at the health benefits of giving up smoking within the first 48 hours.
At 20 minutes after quitting:
- Blood pressure decreases.
- Pulse rate drops
- Body temperature of hands and feet increases.
At 8 hours
- Carbon Monoxide level in the blood drops to normal.
- Oxygen level in blood increases to normal.
At 24 Hours
- Chance of a heart attack decreases.
At 48 Hours
- Nerve endings start to regrow.
- Ability to smell and taste improves.
The truth of the matter is…
Smokers like the feeling they get when the nicotine level in their bloodstream is replenished. From the time a cigarette is stubbed out or until the next one is lit, smokers are in a state of physical withdrawal from nicotine. The more time between cigarettes the more severe the withdrawal. Resulting in edginess, inability to concentrate and even feelings of depression. It is a vicious, never-ending cycle.
And that is Addiction…Not smoking enjoyment.
Cigarette additives – what they are and what they do.
To date 7000 chemical compounds have been identified in cigarette smoke, including 250 poisonous and 70 carcinogenic chemicals. Carbon monoxide arsenic, hydrogen cyanide and benzene are all present in cigarette smoke along with a host of others. This list is readily available from the Cancer Research Centre’s in Australia and America.
In short a cigarette is basically a delivery system for toxic chemicals and carcinogens.
