Methods To Stop Smoking

Some will ask why I would use such a graphic picture for this article. It is really a simple answer. Knowing all of the methods to quit smoking available, and having watched family and friends die from smoking, I wish I could have found one a bit more graphic that this.

You sound bitter, why?

This is what my wife asked me when I let her read my blog post on this subject, and she is right, I am bitter. Let me list some of the reasons why I am bitter about smoking and all it has caused in my life.

  • I had to watch my mother die from it
  • I had to watch my father die from it
  • I now have heath issues from smoking
  • I was played a fool by the tobacco companies, and if you smoke you have been too.
  • I was singled out by marketers who did not care about my health, only my money

I could go on and on but you get my point here. So let us get past the bitterness and move on right? I agree that living in bitterness can be just as damaging as smoking itself, so I have worked it out with myself that my way of coming to terms with this is to help people, myself included here, start a new lifestyle without the use of tobacco. Hit them companies right where they will feel it so to speak, and help create a healthier way of life all around.

Why should I quit, I feel fine?

Boy, how many times did I say that in my years of sucking on the end of that big business money maker.This is where the picture comes into play. This could and just might be you in that picture a few years down the road, and I for one have taken enough chances with my life that I am done pushing the limits. Let me list a few good reasons to quit and start today!

  • Lower health insurance
  • feeling better
  • Taste food again
  • Smell good again ( trust me, that ashtray cologne does not smell that great.)
  • Have more money

How to get help

There are many natural ways to stop smoking.There are also other methods to stop smoking. There are many products on the market to take advantage of in our quest to kick the habit!

  • The patch
  • Self help books
  • Gum
  • Hypnosis
  • natural products to ease withdrawel

Just a few listed and there are many more. So, are you ready to fight back and give this up habit you were forced into acquiring without your permission once and for all, and start living healthy again?

We can do this together. Good luck and thanks for reading!

It was the hardest thing i ever did....twice...but after 9 years of not smoking and to start again was a real decision but just for a short while....I do know how to quit but i will never go through it again...Smoking can cause so many diseases that people do not even know about...they are rare some of them

Good article Shawn. Your image reminds me of hard hitting safety alerts I have seen on construction sites that are designed to shock people into taking action regarding their own safety.
