Smoking Control Through Hypnosis

For years the link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer and chronic lung disease has been well documented and well known. Most people still associate cigarette smoking with breathing problems. But that's not the whole story.

Cigarette smoking is also a major cause of heart and blood vessel disease.

Should you be concerned? Yes! Don't take cardiovascular diseases (CVD) lightly. Each year more than 950,000 Americans die of heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure and other cardiovascular disorders. That's more than two of every five deaths, a life every 33 seconds. And over 57 million Americans have some form of these potentially lethal

Why You Should Stop Smoking Now

No matter how much or how long you've smoked, when you quit smoking your risk of heart disease starts to drop. Three years after quitting, your risk of death from heart attack is about the same as if you'd never smoked.

It's important to stop smoking before the signs of heart disease appear. Once they show up, even if you quit smoking your risk of heart attack won't return to normal although it will be lower.

Don't wait until you have heart disease to quit. Quit while you're ahead. STOP SMOKING NOW!

Secondhand Smoke

There is no safe level of secondhand smoke. Non-smokers who complain about smoke aren't just whining they're trying to save their health and even their lives.

  •  30,000 to 60,000 people die each year from the effects of breathing other people's smoke.
  • Children whose parents smoke have a much higher incidence of ear infections, bronchitis, pneumonia, and lung disease.
  • In one study, people who were around a smoker for at least an hour a week had 20% more thickening of their arteries than those who had no exposure. Artery damage leads to heart disease, the leading cause of death in North America.

Top 10 Reasons To Stay Smoke Free!

  1. It is estimated that every cigarette you smoke takes 12 minutes off your life.
  2. Smoking causes more than eight of every 10 cases of lung cancer. There is no cure for lung cancer, and nine out of 10 lung cancer victims die within five years.
  3. Tobacco contains a poison called nicotine. An injection of one drop of nicotine in its purest form (70 mg) will kill an average-sized man. Cigarettes contain a very small amount of nicotine (between . I and 2.2 mg). This amount will not kill you, but will make your heart beat faster and can make your hands shake.
  4. Smoking increases your risk of getting many serious diseases including cancer, heart disease, emphysema and bronchitis.
  5. Fires started by cigarettes cause 25,000 deaths each year in this country.
  6. Smoking is dangerous for nonsmokers who breathe the smoke from smokers' cigarettes. During the 12 minutes a cigarette burns, smoke from the cigarette fills the room with poisonous gases.
  7. Smokeless tobacco increases the risks of mouth cancer and other diseases of the mouth like tooth decay and gum recession. Early signs of mouth cancer may occur after just a few years of use.
  8. Smoking during pregnancy can harm the developing baby.
  9. Over 400,000 Americans die each year from smoking-related diseases. That's more than from AIDS, alcohol, car accidents, fires, illegal drugs, murders and suicides combined.
  10. A very strong relationship exists between smoking and academic performance. Of those high school seniors with an A average in their senior year, only 7 percent were current daily smokers; of those with a D average, 46 percent were daily smokers.
