More bad new for smokers
A UCLA report says that while it’s already known that adult brains are adversely impacted by smoking (primarily loss of memory and attention), the latest research shows teenagers’ brains are more severely damaged. Further research highlights dangers to unborn children through passive smoking.
Here’s the content of my earlier blog just in case you’d like a reminder of all the other bad news … and some good news. Research say genetic damage happens within minutes of smoking, not years. Cancer causing chemicals form rapidly after the first inhalation. Apart from the well known risks of heart and lung disease and lung cancer, smoking can double the risk of developing alzheimers. Anyone who’s known someone with dementia really wouldn’t want to end their lives this way. Smoking reduces brain size, increases the risk of hearing loss, arthritis and impotency and does immediate damage however little you smoke. One third of hospital patients are there due to smoking and there’s a high death rate among children due to passive smoking.
If you smoke and you’ve managed to read this far despite being tired of all the health warnings, you should also know all of this is progressive. Keep smoking and the damage and risks just keep getting worse. It really might be time to stop. Maybe you know someone who still smokes and might want to stop.
Now the good news … research also says quitting makes people happier. Sustained cessation is guaranteed with Abicord’s single 3 hour session, face-to-face or by phone or internet. It works because it combines four different approaches, any one of which can work on its own, but together they guarantee success. There’s a one year money-back guarantee for achieving the cessation and sustaining it for a year. The cost of the session is quickly recovered through savings on cigarettes. From then on it’s all savings. See www.abicord.com/smoking-cessation
