Over at Health on Line you can see very graphically what happens to the lungs when you smoke.
It’s not pretty at all but I urge you if you smoke to head over and have a look.
Look at what you are doing to your poor lungs. Look how hard they have to work.
Yes on this site my prime concern is budget and at about £7 per pack you are looking at almost 3.5k a year on cigarettes for someone with a 20 a day habit!!! A ridiculous waste of money that can make you extremely ill.
As a now non smoker it just looks a no brainer to me to do everything in your power to stop and regain your health and wealth.
Easy to say as a non smoker. I smoker for about 14 years and I loved smoking . In them days it was sociable (so anti social now) and I just really liked that it helped me relax (or at least I thought it did) the reality was I was always craving after my next smoke and never really relaxing in to what I was doing.
I could give you lots of facts and figures about why smoking is bad for you but we all know it is don’t we.
Now I don’t smoke I know people who do who smell awful, have hacking coughs and no spare cash and their breath is laboured and smelly too. It is so much nice to be a non smoker.
I urge you this Stoptober to get some help with giving up smoking.
Ask your doctor, search the net, pop in a chemists. take that first step their is cleaner healthier and cheaper way to live that just takes binning the fags. You can do this. I did. You can I promise and it is so worth it.
Wishing you lots of luck .
