Even though much has been said about the hazards of smoking, I still believe that in the foreseeable future we will continue finding out new details on what effects tobacco smoke, including the second-hand one, has on our health. Our descendants actually will be wondering in awe how humanity was gradually killing itself with the self-imposed addiction, costing it millions of lives and trillions of dollars. cbd coffee wholesale
The World Health Organization estimates that 100 million people in the world died from smoking-related illnesses in 20th century, at the current rate of around 6 million people per year. Just think of it: 6 million! That’s almost the population of Bulgaria or Rio de Janeiro, if you like, being wiped out in a year from the smoking plaque. Every year. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, tobacco use causes more deaths in the world on the yearly basis than AIDS (1.9 mln), alcohol (2.5 mln) and suicides (1 mln) combined together. Tobacco claimed more lives in the 20th century than both of the devastating world wars, WW I – 20 mln, WW II – 55 mln. Every six seconds “another one bites the dust” due to effects of the tobacco, and the smoking-related illnesses claim one out 10 adult deaths globally. If the trend continues, up to 1 billion people will fall victims to this epidemics in the 21st century.
There are more than 4000 chemical substances in the cigarette smoke; at least 50 of them are known to cause cancer. The list is quite extensive, but let me just say that it includes arsenic that is used in rat poisons, DDT that is a banned insecticide, Formaldehyde that is used to preserve dead specimen, and the list continues in this manner. All of them go directly to your blood and hence saturate every cell of your body when you inhale cigarette smoke.
My goal today is not to scare you with the lethal effects of smoking and make you quit because of the fear of slow and painful death. Even though that lots of extensive research shows that an average smoker lives 10-20 years shorter than an average person who doesn’t smoke, you most probably wouldn’t care about this, as it is always just a probability and never 100%. As experience shows, the method of fear of remote punishment simply doesn’t work. If it did, most of the people would become non-smokers the moment they saw the health warnings on the packs (like “Smoking causes impotence”). If somebody told you, “If you don’t stop smoking now, you will be decapitated in 1 week,” you would have much higher chances of finding inner strength to get rid of this addiction.
My aim is to help you make the greatest decision in your smoking life – free yourself from smoking so that you greatly improve the quality of your life today and tomorrow.
Allen Carr, one of the most successful authors on the matter of quitting smoking, said in his bestseller Allen Carr’s Easy Way to Stop Smoking “However, you cannot force smokers to stop, and although all smokers secretly want to, until they are ready to do so a pact just creates additional pressure, which increases their desire to smoke. This turns them into secret smokers, which further increases the feeling of dependency.”
