People who smoke are either unaware or reject the facts about how harmful cigarette smoking is. Most of the organs in the body are being damaged from the effects of smoking. In fact smoking causes more deaths each year than even motor vehicle injuries and results of crime including drugs. In America there are more than 480,000 deaths each year attributable to smoking (source: CDC.gov).
It is a fact that smoking causes 90% of all lung cancer deaths. It also causes 80% of all deaths from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The average smoker increases their risks of coronary heart disease by up to 4 times that of a non-smoker. The same applies to the risk of stroke. Men and women developing lung cancer are 25 times more at risk than a non-smoker.
Smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in a person’s body. This includes the bladder, liver, stomach, cervix and colon to name just a few organs. For pregnant women the risks of having a stillbirth are extremely high. For men smoking can reduce fertility by affecting sperm. Smoking is a cause of type II diabetes mmellitus and makes it harder to control. It is also a cause of rheumatoid arthritis.
It will take about 2 to 5 years after quitting smoking to reduce your risk of stroke to that of a non-smoker. With all these proven facts why do people still continue smoking? They see it as a form of anxiety control by convincing themselves they are taking a break to relax. With hypnosis it is a relatively simple matter to end this dreadful addiction for good.
