Why You Need to Stop Smoking

It is good enough to get motivated from stopping smoking, you need a powerful, personal reason to quit. Choose a reason that is strong enough to outweigh the urge to light up. There are many terrible effects of smoking that we need to know in order for us to get motivated to stop smoking.

One is the pictures of a rotten lungs if we do not stop smoking..And If all those pictures of rotten lungs were not enough to scare us to stop smoking, maybe, looking at the benefits would be more appropriate for us.

* The level of carbon monoxide in our blood drops to normal level within eight hours after we cease smoking.

* Within two up to three months after we kick the habit, the function of our lungs is raised by 30% and our circulation improves.

* We automatically reduce our risk of getting heart disease within 24 hours after stopping.

* If we are able to stave off smoking for an entire year, we decrease our risk for coronary heart disease to only half that of a smoker.
