Add +- 12 years to your life by stop smoking

27 November 2012, 13:01
Did you know that, on average, you can add 12 years to your life if you stop smoking?

Here are some reasons why...

If you are a smoker, you should ask yourself the following question before you light up your next cigarette:
Why do tobacco comanies add 599 other chemicals to cigarettes if they just want to supply you with the nicotine you are addicted to?

Carbon Monoxide:
Definition: A poisonous, colorless and odorless gas produced as a result of incomplete burning of carbon-containing fuels. Cigarette smoke can contain high levels of CO.

Ammonia:
Definition: A toxic, colorless gas with a very sharp odor. Ammonia occurs naturally in the environment and is a product of human activity.
Ammonia compounds are commonly used in cleaning products and fertilizers. Ammonia is also used to boost the impact of nicotine in manufactured cigarettes.

Hydrogen Cyanide
Definition:
A poisonous, colorless gas that is present in cigarette smoke. Under the name of Zyklon B, hydrogen cyanide was used as a genocidal agent during World War II.

It is shocking that governments are allowing the sale of cigarettes.

THE GOOD NEWS
However, the good news is that it is possible to quit smoking. It takes only three days of suffering to get the nicotine (to which you are addicted and causes the physical withdrawl) out of your system. Thereafter, there is no physical withdrawl, only psychological, which is managable until for a month or so, when you will be free from smoking.

The best resource to help you stop smoking is http://www.whyquit.com
