Five Reasons to Never Give Up on Giving Up Smoking
You know that by resuming smoking you face increased risk of death from Lung Cancer, Emphysema, Stroke… blah blah blah– this isn’t exactly Earth shattering news.
You have learned to ignore and gloss over the realities of smoking; even looking at packets with horrific images of death and disease doesn’t seem to bother you. You have learned to avoid the reality of the damage you have been inflicting in your body so as not to change your ‘enjoyment’ of smoking into a stressful and fearful experience.
You have the secret hope that you will somehow be spared the death and painful disease that comes with the nicotine addiction. ‘I’ll quit in time’, ‘It won’t happen to me’, some how you will be the one that dodges the bullet. Consider your odds – 4 million people a year or one person every 8 seconds is dying from smoking diseases – your chances are slim of being spared death or debilitating disease.
Remove your denial and don’t give up on yourself – you deserve to be healthy and happy.
