STOPTOBER – IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN?
While quitting smoking may seem like a daunting and uphill battle, it doesn’t have to be as difficult as it may seem. Join us and thousands of others for Stoptober as we use the month of October as a starting point for a better and healthier lifestyle!
Years of studies conducted by world-renowned universities and professors have helped us understand the dangers and health risks associated with smoking. There’s no more denying the terrible and detrimental effects smoking has on human health. So, if we know all of this, why do we still smoke cigarettes? Tobacco and it’s thousands of chemicals alone produces toxic, yet addictive smoke once the combustion of a cigarette takes place – over 7000 chemicals are released in tobacco smoke. Add nicotine to the mix and you’ve got an addictively lethal combination.
SMOKING AND INCREASED HEALTH RISKS
- Are more likely than nonsmokers to develop heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer.
- Are at greater risk for diseases that affect the heart and blood vessels (cardiovascular disease).
- Can cause lung disease by damaging your airways and the small air sacs (alveoli) found in your lungs.
- Also increases the risk of dying from cancer and other diseases in cancer patients and survivors.
- Increases the risks of complications during pregnancy.
- Can also affect men’s sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage.
- Can affect bone health.
- Affects the health of your teeth and gums and can cause tooth loss.
- Can increase your risk for cataracts (clouding of the eye’s lens that makes it hard for you to see). It can also cause age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is damage to a small spot near the center of the retina, the part of the eye needed for central vision.
- Is a cause of type 2 diabetes mellitus and can make it harder to control. The risk of developing diabetes is 30–40% higher for active smokers than nonsmokers.
- Causes general adverse effects on the body, including inflammation and decreased immune function.
- Is a cause of rheumatoid arthritis.
“Cigarette smoke harms almost every organ in the body” says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in your body;
- Blood (acute myeloid leukemia)
- Colon and rectum (colorectal)
- Kidney and ureter
- Oropharynx (includes parts of the throat, tongue, soft palate, and the tonsils)
- Trachea, bronchus, and lung.”
SO, HOW DO YOU BEAT THE CIGS?
Million dollar question!
If you’ve tried to quit before, you’re probably familiar with the hundreds of products on the market. If you’ve gone through them all, tried and tested, and you’re looking for an effective alternative, look no further!
Vaping has helped many people come off cigarettes and eventually nicotine all together! That is the ultimate goal. The key is starting the process slowly, – on a nicotine strength to match the amount of cigarettes you’re smoking daily – and gradually weaning yourself down on nicotine, until you eventually reach 0mg!
What makes vaping different to, say, nicotine gum and tablets, is that you’re essentially still enhaling – even if it is not tobacco smoke as you’re used to. By adding nicotine to your vape juice, your body still absorbs the very element of smoking that your body craves, but without thousands of toxic chemicals!
“WHERE DO I EVEN START?”
The vaping world has grown substantially in the last few years, and definitely for the better! While things may seem slightly complicated at first, you’ll soon find your feet in the vaping sphere!
