I think it is absolutely wonderful that smokers give up Smoking for October and raise money for charity.
However ………. do they realise that if they can give up for one month, they can give up forever? It only takes about 48 hours for Nicotine to get out of your bloodstream. It is the habit that causes the problem.
As I started to write this blog, I received this email from a client:
Just thought I'd drop you a line to say that my teeth have now been done all thanks to giving up smoking and I'm delighted with them! It's been 9 weeks since my last cigarette and I still can't quite believe it! It's getting easier and easier with each day, week and month that goes and I never ever want to go near one of those things again - what a curse they are!
Here are some interesting facts about recovery:
Within 1 hour of stopping your blood pressure and heart rate will have returned to normal!
Within 8 hours the nicotine levels in your bloodstream will have reduced by over 90%.
Within 12 Hours your bloods oxygen levels with have dramatically increased.
24 hours - Nicotine withdrawal anxiety will have peaked and will return to normal within 2-3 weeks.
4 weeks - Any smoking withdrawal related anger, anxiety, irritability will now be gone. Stop forever now!
This is just the beginning. Imagine the benefits of having more energy and vitality, spending more quality time with your family, having a longer life, improved fertility, younger looking skin, the list goes on.
Why not start saving that money you are spending on smoking and create a better life for yourself and others.
