How Harmful is Smoking

It is a common statistic that has been around for some time now but over 400,000 people die each year due to a smoking related illness. One out of three smokers will die because of their habit. The problem is which one will it be? According to a Forever Free publication, that person will lose, on average, 24 years of life.

Those are the kind of odds we would like to see at the track or Vegas but death – I don’t think so. Even if you aren’t the one just think about the quality of your life. Each cigarette you smoke introduces over 4,000 chemicals into your body, many of which are toxic and harmful. When was the last time you jogged down the street for fun and felt good? What about playing in the park with your children, kind of hard to do with a cigarette hanging from your mouth.

To measure how harmful smoking is you need to look more than just the health effects of smoking but how it affects society, the body, and non-smokers.

When you quit smoking you greatly reduce the odds. Once you quit smoking your body quickly begins to heal itself. There are nearly instant benefits to quitting.

Within 20 minutes after you smoke that last cigarette, your body begins a series of changes that continue for years.
