Contrary to popular belief, it’s not big, and it’s most certainly not clever. Smoking has been a major contributing factor in the deaths of millions (if not; billions) of people worldwide over the last 200 years. I know what you might be thinking, but a death from disease or health issues caused by smoking is almost always drawn out and painful for both the sufferer, and their family and friends. With this in mind, it’s vital you read carefully through the points made in this post to fully understand the implications of your actions. It’s not only yourself you should be thinking about here. What about your children?

1. Heart Attack

Everyone reading this post should already know that smoking clogs the arteries and causes heart attacks, but this point cannot be emphasised enough. If you’ve ever had a real panic attack in your life where your chest felt like it was going to explode, you can pretty much times this by 100, and you might be near to understanding the level of pain you will feel when the real thing hits.

2. Stroke

For much the same reason cigarettes can cause heart attacks, they can also bring on a stoke. While this doesn't sound too bad, it could result in sections of your brain becoming useless, or even death. Heavy smokers have been known to suffer from strokes from as early as their 40s.

3. Lung Cancer

This is the biggest killer of people who smoke, and so you should definitely take it seriously. If you smoke more than 15 cigarettes per day for longer than 20 years, the chances of you being diagnosed with lung cancer almost treble. This can be avoided though, if you simply use some of the new electronic quitting aids available from specialists like 10 Motives. Although these hasn’t been a lot of testing on these products, there isn’t a doctor in the world who thinks they’re anyway near as dangerous as the real thing.

4. Oral Cancer

Your tongue and throat are very delicate and exposed areas, so it should come as no surprise that burning them constantly for years with cigarette smoke can cause issues. Oral cancer is one of the hardest cancers to treat, and patients often lose their tongues or worse. If this happens to you, communication will become a real struggle for the rest of your natural life.

5. Cardiovascular Disease

While this can manifest in many different ways, usually it increased blood pressure and raises the likelihood of a stroke. Damaged blood vessels from smoking become thicker and narrower, thus making the heart beat faster and raising your blood pressure almost instantly after smoking a tobacco. Over time, this can become fatal.

6. Bronchitis

Have you seen those people who have to carry an oxygen tank round wherever they go? Enough said.

So guys, no matter what your opinion on the matter is at the moment, it could change in the future when it’s too late to do anything. This is why you should quit now to avoid taking that risk.

I want to see you alive and well in 15 years!
