Smoking is a tough habit to break, but you can do it! Your loved ones may not have the courage to tell you about smoker’s breath and a lingering smoky smell. Smokers have a high risk of developing oral diseases due to tobacco toxicity. Years of smoking can also damage your sense of smell, which makes food taste bland. Have you noticed that you need extra salt to season your food? Too much sodium in your diet can cause a range of health complications including high blood pressure, heart conditions and obesity. Studies have also linked smoking to higher cases of lung disease, depression, anxiety disorders, gastrointestinal diseases, eye disorders and arthritis/bone diseases. The bottom line is that nicotine is both addictive and dangerous.
The good news? The benefits of stopping smoking are profound, even on the first day without cigarettes. Within 20 minutes your blood pressure, heart rate and temperature will return to their normal range. Within 24 hours your risk for having a heart attack begins to decrease. In less than two days, your sense of smell and taste will return. Within three days your body is free of nicotine, and within three weeks your body and brain will no longer crave nicotine.
