5 NOT Health-Related Reasons To Quit Smoking
You know smoking is bad for you. Smokers know about the long term health risks, and it is frustrating to hear them again and again from well-meaning loved ones and acquaintances.
Unfortunately, our brain is not wired to grasp something which might happen in the distant future, many years down the line. The possibility of cancer 20 years later does not feel as dangerous as walking home tonight in a really sketchy area.
This is most likely the case if you are young, healthy, so you have plenty of time to quit, right?
There are other good reasons to quit, and it is easier than ever now. A study found that smokers who quit with vaping are twice as likely to succeed as people who used other nicotine replacement products.
1, Your love life
Dating is not easy – don’t make it even harder. If you are not one of the lucky ones, you most likely spend time swiping on a dating app, hoping for the best. At least there is plenty of fish in the sea, right?
Well, maybe not as many as you would think.
According to Pfizer and Match.com research data, 89% of people prefer not to date a smoker. That’s almost 9 out of 10.
It is harsh, but the top concerns are understandable:
- Long- term health effects
- The smell of the smoker
- Their own health
And if you think you can hide your habit, you are wrong.
Do you have a partner already? I got something for you too. If you stop smoking, you improve your body’s blood flow. That means improved sensitivity. Men who stop smoking may get better erections. Women may find their orgasms improve and they become aroused more easily.
2, Baby it’s cold outside
The UK just recorded its coldest temperature for 25 years. I don’t miss the days bundling up to go out for a cigarette, or shivering at the front of the house because you can not be bothered to put all those layers on for a quick smoke. I’m vaping in the warmth of my living room, and it’s glorious.
Do you say you can smoke inside? A study found that people who live in smoking households were up to 6.6 times more likely to experience a fire injury than those in nonsmoking homes. According to another study, cigarettes were the cause of 55% of all house fires involving a fatality. Don’t do it.
3, You want to look good
There are more than 4,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke, and many of them trigger the destruction of collagen and elastin. It might be a surprise, but even being around second-hand smoke degrades the skin’s building blocks. You don’t want to look years older, do you? How about your partner?
Interesting fact, researchers found smoking as a top cause of sagging breasts. Those chemicals affect the whole body, not only the face.
Yellow teeth are also one of the most notorious effects of long term smoking, as stained fingers and nail, and your hair is not safe either: smoking is linked to grey hair and hair loss as well.
4, Enjoy food more
Smoking dulls your taste buds and your sense of smell. You might don’t even realise how much you are missing out on, but you will definitely feel the difference if you quit.
The good news is, even 48 hours after your last cigarette you will feel the improvement.
Don’t forget about the massive selection of e-juices to vape either. The flavours of desserts, drinks, fruits, or even tobacco make vaping a lot more exciting than picking up your usual pack in the corner shop.
Have you heard the joke about the Ferrari?
“How long have you been smoking for?” the colleague asks.
“Thirty years,” says the smoker.
“Thirty years!” marvels the co-worker. “That costs so much money. At a pack a day, you’re spending $1,900 a year. Had you instead invested that money at an 8% return for the last 30 years, you’d have $250,000 in the bank today. That’s enough to buy a Ferrari.”
The smoker looked puzzled.
“Do you smoke?” he asked his co-worker.
“So where is your Ferrari?”
Smoking is very expensive in the UK. An average smoker saves £3000/year by switching to vaping.
You might not buy a Ferrari, but you can put a lot more into your savings account or support your lockdown takeaway habit.
You don’t need to spend a lot to start your vaping journey either.
