There are many benefits to giving up smoking. The human body is incredibly resilient and it can heal from many years of damages caused by such activities as smoking cigarettes. There are many information sources out there on and offline about the health benefits on giving up smoking. These sources include government run websites, personal blogs, and corporations that sell quit smoking aids. Unfortunately, while most of them are fine source of learning the health benefits to giving up smoking, they fail to describe the benefits that an average Joe can truly relate to. So without the complicated graphs and medical mumbo jumbo, let’s discuss about the practical benefits to giving up smoking.
The first thing you notice about the most smokers is their inability to enjoy an active life. I can attest to this as a former smoker myself. It is a common knowledge that smoking cigarettes diminish the lung capacity.
First and foremost, you can say goodbye to just about every sports activity you’ve enjoyed over the years once you start smoking. An active lifestyle creates an energetic person and is not the other way around. If you haven’t been smoking for long, you may think this does not apply to you, but you truly feel the effect of smoking after a full year or two of smoking cigarettes ขายบุหรี่ไฟฟ้า.
Your social life, the relationships with your friends, family, and colleges, they all change overtime due to smoking. At first you smoke because it makes you feel good, then because you need to, and finally you smoke because you are completely addicted to cigarettes. The places you can be, the things you can do, and the people you meet get limited because of your addiction.
One aspect of your life that gets hit hard when you start smoking is the romance in your life. If you had a girlfriend, boyfriend, or spouse before you started smoking, then you know firsthand smoking is a big issue with them.
If you are hoping to date someone new and you’ve picked up a smoking habit as well, you’d be surprised to learn that some surveys show that over 90 percent of non-smoking singles won’t even entertain the idea of dating a smoker. You’ve just reduced your dating pool to about 20 percent of the population.
There’s also the benefit of possibly saving a large sum of money. There was the largest hike for taxes on cigarettes in 2009 and the last time I checked, there was a plan to increase the tax by another $1.49 which would be a record hike. This means that in areas that cigarettes are the most expensive, such as New York, you would be paying as much as $10 per pack. But even if you live in an area that for a long time retained a low cigarette price, you would still be paying in the upwards of $6 per pack.
The latest figure I’ve seen suggest that an average smoker smokes one pack a day. This means that an average smoker can save nearly $4000 a year. Can you use an extra 4 grand? I know most of us could and just imagine how much interest your money would have accrued in a period of 10 years had you put your money in a C/D account.
