Benefits of Leaving Cigarettes

If you are one of those people that need a little motivation that will help you quit smoking, then you are in the right place. We have put together some benefits that non-smokers have to motivate you to quit your bad habit of smoking.

No More Food Cravings

Some studies have shown that nicotine speeds up a person’s metabolism. A fast metabolism can result in you eating a much larger portion of food. Eating more will eventually lead to gaining a lot of weight. When you remove the nicotine from your body, you will feel less hungry than before. In some cases, people get overweight and they can’t lose the weight, but the solution is in front of them just simply quit smoking and your metabolism will eventually slow down.

Cleaner and Healthier Lungs

People know that smoking is bad for their lungs, but they still continue to smoke. Why is that we don’t know, maybe because they don’t completely understand how bad can cigarettes affect the lungs. Some people realize how bad it is when it is too late and they already have lung cancer. The worst thing about cigarettes is the tar that is accumulating in the person’s lungs. That tar can, later on, lead to many health issues one of them being lung cancer.

Having More Money

One of the main reasons why people stop smoking is not because they want to live a healthy life but because they need to save money and what better way than quitting smoking. Smoking can be very expensive, especially if you are a chronic smoker and you smoke more than a pack a day. The cost of the cigarettes is depending on the quality and the brand (name) of them. Try and think about how much money can you save in just one month if you stop smoking it will add up to be a lot of money. All that money that you spend on cigarettes you can now spend on other things that can improve your life.

Improve Your Social Life

When you start smoking you may notice that you have lost some friends because of that. Some people just don’t like to be amongst smokers and if you become one they will just simply stop hanging out with you. Most likely you will find a group of friends that are also smokers, but do you really want that?

To have your whole life based on whether you are a smoker or not, probably not.  So, leave your bad habit of smoking and some of the good friends might even return. Or one of the benefits of non-smokers is that you have the option of choosing a life partner that is also a non-smoker because girls that don’t smoke usually want to have a boyfriend that is a smoker.

Full of Energy

The people that are chronic smokers tend to have less energy than the people that don’t smoke. That is mainly because their lung capacity is much smaller due to all the tar and chemicals that they inhale.
