Health authorities usually puts a warning on each cigarette box against the would be smokers but I think you need more than this. Listen to this from think.quest.org estimates that over 3000 chemical substances exist in tobacco smoke. Nicotine, carbon monoxide, sulpher dioxide, methanol are just a few. Assuming now somebody comes to you and says "hey you want to inject a dose of sulpher dioxide in your blood stream." Would you deny it Yet that is what you are doing each time you smoke. Diseases such as lung cancer, cardiovascular diseases, pulmonary diseases, asthma, osteoporosis, smokers cough, cancers of lynx and tongue are derived from such chemicals, and the risk is directly proportional to the cigarettes smoked. Apart from the diseases other conditions can be foul body odor and general ill feeling (Marrow, 2008). So how do you exactly stop smoking Firstly sit down and write a list of thing that compels you to stop smoking then set a date for the action. Get used to drinking plenty of fluids like fruit juices and warm water this will cleanse the detoxicants in the body. Munch carrot sticks, radishes and other vegetables as an oral substitute to break the ties of smoking still you can use cigarettes substitutes like chewing gums, lollipops to fulfill that craving urge to smoke. Then, have a positive attitude towards health and lastly find something to do with your now free hands: you can take a walk, go for a swim, exercise and practice deep breathing. By exercising you learn how smoking has adversely affected you and so would want to ward it off. similarly it is through exercises that your health is able to improve. Quitting smoking is therefore a question of mind and the body and if you follow the above steps it will be a success. (Marrow, 2008)
