Stop Smoking in 3 Minutes!!!!

Dangers of Secondhand Smoke

Second-hand smoke contains…
Side stream smoke - smoke from the tip of the cigarette.
Mainstream smoke - smoke that is breathed back out by the smoker.
Second-hand smoke hangs around for ages and most of it is invisible and odourless. Even if you open up the windows it will still be in a room after two and a half hours! Even if you can't see or smell any smoke, it's probably still there. Smoking in a car is even worse because all of the smoke is concentrated into a small space.

Non-smokers who breathe in second-hand smoke are at risk of the same diseases as smokers, including cancer and heart disease!

Secondhand smoke contains 4,000 toxic chemicals and it is estimated that it causes thousands of deaths each year. Children are particularly affected by secondhand smoke because their bodies are still developing. But around half of all British children are growing up in homes where at least one parent is a smoker.

Find out more about how secondhand smoke affects others.

From 1st of July 2007, virtually all enclosed public places and workplaces in England are smokefree. This means that it is against the law to smoke in the indoor parts of places such as pubs, bars, nightclubs, cafes and restaurants, lunch rooms, membership clubs and shopping centres. At work, smoking inside is a thing of the past, and indoor smoking rooms are no longer allowed. Public transport and work vehicles used by more than one person are also smokefree.

Jay is Stopping Smoking

On 15 November, Jay who is approaching 50 years old stopped smoking with this message,

"Today I am a non-smoker.

I'll spend most of this day devoting my energy to not lighting up and it may make me somewhat difficult to be around....but I will be a non-smoker today."

On 13 November he had written,

"I'm an addict. The very definition of is "engaging in a behavior that you know is harmful but you do it anyway".

It's time to start being honest. I'm suspending the challenge to devote my energies to getting control of this addiction. This is my priority. Nothing else is important right now. I may gain some weight; in fact, I'm expecting to since food is one way to cope with symptoms of withdrawal. I will exercise, but only to take my mind off smoking and not with any goal of muscle development. I sincerely hope that I haven't let anybody down that may have been looking to me for inspiration. My goal is to still get my health in order during this 50th year of mine and I've started counting from that birthday. By the turn of this year I hope to have my smoking habit long behind me and begin a new BFL challenge...a REAL that by the time day 365 rolls around, I will indeed be a new person."

On 20 November, he posted this video on his blog,

Can a Smoker be a Student of Self-Improvement?

Originally posted by Vidual
"But it's sad that people who have been doing self-improvement for over a year, people that have actually decided to look at their self and their life in such a developmental perspective, STILL SMOKE!


I could not agree more.

When I was a Herbalife distributor, I remember Mark Hughes (the President) recommending that distributors lose their excess weight if they want to talk to others about losing weight and STOP SMOKING. Herbalife is a health company, not just a weight control company. We sold products for cellular nutrition to feed the body so it was totally contradictory to our purpose to smoke. Thing is that many smokers do not realise that they stink. If a smoker sits next to me, I have to move. It is no use just rinsing their mouth with water or chewing gum - their clothes and hair stink.

Is continuing to smoke relevant to personal development? Of course it is. PD is about learning and growing to be the best you can and conquering your demons and weaknesses. Choosing to poison yourself and pollute other people's air is most definitely a weakness.

If you are a smoker reading this, please listen to the message.

Two Ex-smokers write about their experience

More comments about smoking found on a blog posting:

"I was up to two packs a day when I quit smoking. Quitting was one of the hardest things I have ever done, and I had a lot of support. It was also one of the best things I have ever done. I had cravings off and on for a long time, and still do once in awhile. It has been 20 years since my last cig, but as a good friend of mine says... "I'm just a puff away from a pack a day!"
Here is someone who watched his mother suffer in hospital as a result of smoking:
"Smoking is one of those habits that continually reminds you of your own weaknesses. We may smoke, but often would prefer we didn't.

I am an ex-smoker. Back in the day when I was a teenager, it was very cool to smoke and, as many a smoker knows, once you are 'sucked in' it can become the inner conflicting battle of your lifetime to give it up.

I have known all the times when a smoker will say it is 'enjoyable' and I have known all the times when you cursed the day you ever started...

For me though, it was the recent events surrounding my mother passing away, that finally caused me to quit... forever. She got sick in the UK and I live in Australia. I flew at 24 hours notice to be at her bedside in hospital. I had not seen her for a couple of years even though we had spoken on the phone.

In the mad panic to get there, I succumbed to a packet of cigarettes, to help me with the stress, I justified. Well you cannot smoke on a plane or at an airport, I cannot for the life of me drive and smoke as I have not done so for years, you cannot smoke in a hospital, so needless to say, I did not have that many before I got to see her!

When I did see her though, a part of me deflated. I remembered my mum being larger than life, full of positivity and zest for life. On the bed in front of me was what was left of that memory. About 35 pounds lighter, older and wheezing loudly.

I remembered the days when I was a kid and mum would smoke non-tipped cigarettes and cough all day and night like she had some kind of 'consumption'. I did not know any different then though... now I saw the result of those years of non-filtered cigarette smoking.

It was her heart, damage caused by years of smoking and the fact that she had caught pneumonia once, something that happened all too often in such a cold climate... nearly as common as bronchitis, particularly when somebody smoked.

When she was awake, she could only speak to me for a few short moments without having to suck hungrily on an oxygen mask. Then the coughing started. Her whole frail body needing all it's energy to complete the grisly task of clearing her airways.

It then occurred to me that I was witnessing a slow suicide. I cannot tell you how deeply distressing it can be to watch somebody who is an integral part of your life, be so vulnerable, be so weak, too soon for her natural time. She would have had 10 more good years if she had been a non-smoker. Precious time she could have spent with us. We do not think of the consequences of our actions often enough guys.

I will NEVER smoke again and somewhere, somehow, I know she knows I have made the right decision...

I've got too much dang work to do, too many people I want to stay around and too many places to visit on this planet to check out 10 years early!!! Sheesh!!!"

Second-hand Smoke

The same person wrote further on the forum:

"I have actually developed a real sensitivity to tobacco smoke, probably inherited from my mother,who is severely allergic. Even smelling it on somebody's breath sometimes induces coughing.

While I recognize people's right to put anything they want into their bodies, I am grateful that I live in California, where smoking in public places is uncommon and there is very progressive anti-smoking legislation.

Tobacco, no matter what its medicinal properties, is poisonous in the form of second-hand smoke.

Second-hand Tobacco smoke ruins other people's meals, gives children lung cancer, hurts people with sensitive lungs and undermines the health of people who suffer from immune-system wrecking conditions like AIDS.

Please poison yourself in your own good company."

Smoke decreases Breathing Capacity

I read this on a forum:

"I never smoked tobacco but I used to smoke grass. I eventually realized that any kind of inhalation of smoke markedly decreases breathing capacity.

I chose breathing. I'd rather live as long as possible with as much vitality as possible, and its clear to me that is not feasible with habits that inhibit lung function.

Deeper breathing - more oxygen to the brain, too."

Do you smoke?

I read this on a forum:

"They say begin with the end in sight. Many people preach about the importance of starting your business with the end result in sight. If we take such care in our business we should be equally diligent in our personal lives. If you begin smoking with the end in sight how can you smoke? Smoking is an investment with constantly diminishing returns."

Stop Smoking - Withdrawal Symptoms

Dizziness may occur during the first one or two days. Take a quick break, it will pass.

Headaches may appear at any time during the first weeks. Try to relax. Take any usual remedy for headache, a cold cloth on the back of your neck, or relieve the stress by taking a short walk.

Tiredness may occur during the first few weeks, but if you meditate or relax during the first few weeks, it will pass.

Coughing may actually increase during the first few days, simply because the residue from the smoke has not been flushed from your system.

Tightness in the chest may occur in the first few days. Rest and take deep breaths, it will go away.

Sleeping problems may occur in the first few days. Try to stay away from drinks that have a high caffeine content and try not to exercise too strenuously in the hours prior to bedtime. A hot bath prior to retiring at night may also be helpful.

Constipation may occur in the first month after you quit. If this occurs, eat foods with a high fiber content, drink plenty of fluids, and do some light exercise.

Concentration may tend to wander during the first few weeks. Be ready for this, take a break or do something physical for a short period of time. will all be worth it!

Stop Smoking with Hypnotherapy MP3

The damaging effects of tobacco are well publicised. People who smoke are two or three times more likely to suffer a heart attack or stroke, or die of heart disease. Aside from serious diseases, there are a number of other ways tobacco can affect your health. Because smoking lowers the oxygen levels in your blood, it speeds up the ageing process and causes faster ageing skin and poor circulation. In addition it can reduce fertility and cause impotence.

Giving up smoking will not only have profound and immediate effects on your health and your looks, but it will also make a massive impact on your purse!

The effectiveness of hypnosis can be gauged by results of trials both in the USA and Europe, which have shown that hypnosis is the most effective way to stop smoking (New Scientist 31.10.92. page six).

The American Journal of Clinical Hypnotherapy (1968) published a report that showed that 94% of patients that were able to stop smoking through hypnosis were still not smoking 18 months later.

A recent study from the University of Iowa published in the Journal of Applied Psychology cites 48 studies of hypnosis covering 6000 smokers. The results left no doubt as to the effectiveness of stop smoking with hypnosis.

This powerful self-hypnosis track has been developed from nearly 20 years of successfully helping thousands of clients to become non-smokers. It will help you stop smoking immediately and through repeated listening you will become a life long non-smoker. The track will programme your subconscious mind to support you so you will not experience any cravings and you will feel comfortable about being a non-smoker.

Download this track and within an hour you will have stopped smoking and through repeated listening you will become a lifelong non-smoker. As with all the tracks this is backed up by a no questions asked, full money back guarantee - so what have you got to lose?

For less than the cost of a few packets of cigarettes, you can become a non-smoker for life.

All tracks are available for purchase as an MP3 audio download or as an audio CD delivered by post.

LiveFree Method to Stop Smoking

I have just received info on the LiveFree method of quitting smoking.

Unlike other methods that allow the body to absorb nicotine, the very drug that you are addicted to, LiveFree naturally targets the affected neural-receptors in your brain and safely mimics the pleasurable effects of nicotine....

How does it compare with nicotine patches, gums, or inhalers?
LiveFree is less expensive and far superior. To break a physical addiction, the substance must be removed, not replaced. The nicotine patch, gum, inhaler, and other nicotine replacement therapy aides add nicotine to the body in small increments. Because of this, many smokers do not completely quit. LiveFree flushes nicotine from the blood and tissue cells, enabling the smoker to quickly escape the physical addiction.

"I took the LiveFree anti smoking patch, and a couple of days later tried to smoke a cigarette. But I was absolutely sick..." - Mary, KS
