Effects of Smoking

Are you aware of the dangers and effects of smoking? Maybe. Maybe not.

If you are a heavy smoker, let me tell you this reality...you will die.

Its effects will catch up with you sooner or later.

It may not be tomorrow, it may not be next month, it may not even be next year.

But you will die. Believe it.

  Deadly Effects of Smoking

  1. Coronary Heart disease
    • The toxins in cigarette smoke lower your high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and at the same time increase the level of your low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. The nicotine and carbon monoxide in tobacco smoke combine to damage the inner-most layer of your arteries. This in turn allows plaque to build up along the lining of your arterial wall

  2. Stroke
    • Arterial plaque can rupture and cause blood clots. These blood clots break away and get lodged in another part of your body. If they block the blood flow to your brain, they cause a stroke

  3. Emphysema
    • It is a chronic and progressive lung disease that develops when the small air passages leading to the tiny air sacs in your lungs, called alveoli, become distended and the walls lose their elasticity. Long term exposure to tobacco smoke and other toxic chemicals are the main cause

  4. Lung Cancer
    • Tar invades your lungs each time you smoke and inhale deeply. There are over 4,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke and they form deadly compounds inside your lungs

  5. Other forms of Cancer
    • Sometimes cancer invades the esophagus, larynx, mouth and throat

Scared? You should be, because this is not only about you.

Second Hand Smoke

One of its highly dangerous effects is cancer due to inhalation of second hand smoke. Your loved ones and others may develop cancer of the lungs when they passively inhale your cigarette smoke.

Ask around...many non-smokers die of cancer each year from inhaling second hand smoke.

On the other hand, if you come to your senses and decide to stop smoking, congratulations!

You're on the right path.

Withdrawal Symptoms

Once you decide to quit, you will experience withdrawal symptoms and other effects of smoking such as the ones below:

  • Anxiety
  • Cough
  • Craving for a Smoke
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Frustration
  • Headache
  • Hostility
  • Insomnia
  • Intense Sweating
  • Irritability
  • Nausea
  • Restlessness
  • Sore Throat
  • Weight Gain

Better do some artery and lung cleansing. Expel the arterial plaque that clog your arteries and the tar that took up residence deep inside your lungs:

  • Aloe Vera Juice - Take 20 ml or 1/4 glass 3 x a day on an empty stomach
  • Omega 3 Fish Oil - Take 1 softgel 3 x a day
  • Lycium Plus - Take 1 tablet 3 x a day. This is a powerful anti-oxidant which serves to neutralize free radicals
  • Garcinia Tablets - Take 1 tablet 3 x a day. This is a natural appetite suppressant to counteract your craving for food

The moment you decide to stop because the effects of smoking scare you, it is a step in the right direction. You must realize that this is not a walk in the park.

Self-discipline plays a key role here if you really want to break free from nicotine addiction.
