Side Effects Think about it

I've been catching up. Think about side effects like this.

When you smoke there aren't any perceivable side effects (that the smoker sees) BACK OFF all you reformed smokers - I'm going somewhere here.

The minute we stop we begin to look for what? Side Effects blaming the pills, patch, whatever crutch we've chosen to help us get there.

Perhaps the side effects are just from quitting?

Being BITCHY, SNAPPY, GRUMPY, GASSY, CRAPPY, SLEEPLESS, HUNGRY (god I sound like the 7 dwarfs all rolled into one) I probably snuffed Snow White but just don't remember doing it.

Sleepless = not sleeping, insomnia, tired, cannot get enough of the infomercial world until the early early edition of the news shows up around what 3:00 am

Gassy = OMG you would think I'd eaten enough pinto beans to be my own blazing saddles!

Crappy = crappy taste in my mouth YUCK

Hungry = I could eat the kitchen counter some days, silestone isn't good for one's digestive system

Bitchy/Snappy/Grumpy = well those are all self defining now aren't they?

Positives (that I've noticed)

My skin looks 100% better
I don't have to have waxing done as often
Food tastes better
Those wrinkles around my mouth are diminishing
My voice is different clearer, less raspy (I don't sound like that woman on Beetlejuice anymore)
Cardio isn't a dirty word anymore
My sense of smell seems better
No Sinus infections
Yellowish tint to my fingernails is gone


Enough Ranting for Now

Wow, quitting smoking sounds so appealing when you put it that way, lol! I guess it is the price we have to pay to get our bodies to forgive what we have done to it for so many years. I like the positives that you listed, they are a good bright side :)

How about other people that are having a hard time to quit the habit. They should try other alternatives as well. Without getting the harmful effects in cigars, they get to enjoy the same satisfaction compared to other traditional cigarettes in the market.

Puffing away at the cigarette is always a pleasurable experience for all smoking addicts and the feeling of well-being provided by nicotine makes the users of cigarettes and other tobacco containing substances consistently addicted to the habit of smoking. But as the ill-effects of smoking show off slowly and gradually and a smoker becomes a victim to atherosclerosis, Buerger's Disease and a whole range of other smoking induced ailments, he fins no way out other than opting for the antismoking medicine Chantix.

Good blog. Everyone should be aware of the effects of the smoking. I have suffered a lot because of smoking. I have tried lot of ways to quit smoking but nothing worked. Later my friend advised me to try hypnosis and suggest Thoughts Become Reality - Hypnosis which helped me to increase my self confidence and self control. So, that I can control smoking and now I have quit it completely.

I also had a hard time quitting smoking. My dentist in St. Petersburg advised me to stop smoking, because I'll be undergoing treatment next year. My first week without cigarettes seemed like hell for me. I always craved from sweets, and I'm afraid to get bigger or fatter. Thankfully, my friends encouraged me to join their activities like frisbee so I can burn the calories that I take. When I visited my dentist in St. Petersburg (FL), we saw an improvement in my gums.

To quit smoking really sounds so nice as it has a lots of side effects or can say it has only side effects. We are pushing our life to destruction by using cigs and the most bad effect of it is lung diseases it get. Even if one wants to enjoy smoking and at too at no harm then using vaporizer device can help in it.

vaporizers said...

Quit smoking is a tough job and it becomes challenging to give up smoke at starting but it will improve the life and add years to life.

Well...I think Hypnosis is the best way to quit smoking instead of using pills or something else.They may have many kinds of side effects but hypnosis is not at all pertain any kind of side effect.

weed vaporizers said...

Yeah that is agreed that till that time you are into smoking you don't even realize is its side effects but as soon as you think of giving it or actually gives it that time you will feel problem so do it in a proper way and it will not be that hard.

Health Info said...

Quitting smoking is tough but they way that you word it gives me a much greater chance to succeed. Thanks for sharing.

Steven said...

Cigarette smoking is dangerous in terms of material used to make cigarette like nicotine and tobacco. Nicotine is one of the dangerous drug which harms your tooth, gum and lungs and causes the disease like lung cancer, so quit smoking is the best option to protect yourself against this kind of disease.

Aroma Vaporizers said...

Although quit smoking calls for lots of efforts but still it is not impossible to quit and once you quit smoke it will take few days to get back to normal but you will soon come through it.

congratulations guys, quality information you have given!!! Aspire Nautilus

isabel said...

yes i totally agree with all of you guys, but think of someone who just doesn't care about the side-effects. Then what would you suggest? You know the majority of the young people,smoke because they want to look cool and "in" so they do not care about the future and they cannot think about all the health problems that may occur. So, i guess that it shound be the side-effects that make people stop smoking or even prevent them from starting it, but the understanding that it is just a bad habit and nothing more!

isabel said...

shouldn't*

amy said...

Smoking has many side effects they are not safe they contains many bad ingredients in it making itself very unsafe for health.
