People make all kinds of excuses for not quitting. When they finally become honest with theirselves,
as BouldRake pointed out, they will stop smoking.
My excuses to continue smoking were like most cigarette smokers excuses. The big excuse was
'well ya gonna die of something so it might as well be lung cancer' and another one is 'well my
great great great great grandpa smoke all his life and lived to be 196'. Oh here is another great
one that women usually like to use 'if I quit smoking I will get fat'.
The real facts are, people that use tobacco, are very highly going to die from it. They are going
to cut their lives shorter. They will die a most uncomfortable death. They do spread second hand
smoke. Many do suffer for years before they die.....yes, I said YEARS and it is often called COPD.
Many will be on OXYGEN. Many will be FORCED to quit in order to use their oxygen. Many will
drag an oxygen tank around with them. Many will never leave their house because the oxygen
tanks are cumbersome. Many will need to have fluid drained from their body, some times on a
regular basis. Many will suffer from a large number of OTHER health issues, skin problems,
pneumonia, flue's, carcinoma's, and more. People that smoke, do die from other complications
before they die of the actual cancer. People that smoke, can die and many do die, at a very
early age. When you smoke, at some point you will begin to cough and gurgle. You'll hack.
You'll be lucky if you can carry on a conversation with anyone without hacking or coughing.
When you lay down to sleep, you will sound like someone attempting to gargle listening for the
first time. You will wheeze and gurgle. Eventually you will cough up what will look to be greenish
black snot....it will become worse. You will have so much of it that you'll need to carry a pack
of paper towels with you around the house or worse.....the ultimate worse.....a coke can or
some other type of can to spit the foul contents of your black lungs.
If you smoke cigarettes in your house, your house and most everything in it, smells and turns
yellowish orange. No matter how much you clean, since you consistently smoke, your house
becomes consistently smoked in like a ham that has been hanging in a smoke house for years.
Your clothes turn orange. In fact, many clothes you will wash but they will still smell like
smoke. Everyone that goes around you, won't want to embarrass you so they say nothing
but they are glad when they leave your presence because fresh tobacco smells so good but
used tobacco smells like stinking puke and you will smell like a walking talking stinking puke
When you stop smoking, you will feel renewed. You will kick yourself for not quitting sooner.
You'll wish you had all the money back that you spent on cigarettes all those years. Your
house will smell like a summer breeze. People will actually smell your cologne on you for the
first time ever. Your skin will brighten. You'll look younger. Your hair will soften. You might
even find your hair thickens. You'll feel more toned. Old bones, aches, pains, arthritis, seems
more dull. You'll actually smell things, things you thought you could smell but you really didnt
until now. You'll taste all the flavors in your foods. You won't feel so tired. You'll be able
to walk longer and faster. Your endurance is greater. Your eyes are brighter. Your brain
functions easier and faster. You'll feel 100% better than you have felt since you were a kid.
You see someone smoking, you know what they are doing to themselves.
STOP making excuses and QUIT!
