By Tamara Shadday | June 7, 2010

If you have ever discussed the topic of becoming a non smoker with your doctor I am sure you have heard plenty about the negative impact smoking has on your body. In this article, I will present to you some of the best benefits of becoming a non smoker.

Non Smokers Are Happier People:

Nicotine is an addictive drug classified as a depressant. The reason you feel good after smoking is that depressants relax the central nervous system temporarily. Becoming a non smoker allows you to get off the roller coaster mood swings a depressant class drug can cause when abused. After a detox period, your body’s moods will start to normalize and you will achieve a more stable frame of mind.

Non Smokers Are Healthier People:

As soon as you become a non smoker, you are immediately doing one of the most important things you can do to improve your long-term health. You will experience greatly diminished chances of contracting such diseases as lung & mouth cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and emphysema. Your chances of having a sudden death event such as a heart attack or stroke gradually decrease over a fifteen-year period. Studies show that non smokers have stronger immune systems and are less likely to contract illnesses such as colds, flu’s, and pneumonia. You can add an average of 13.85 years to your life by quitting smoking.

Non Smokers Are More Attractive People:

Early in the 20th century advertisers pushed advertisements on the populace that glamorized smoking and could not be further from the truth. Smokers make up less than twenty percent of the adult population in the United States. Statistics show that if you are single and a non smoker your prospects of finding an acceptable long-term companion are greater than if you are a smoker.

Non Smokers Are More Environmentally Friendly:

When you join the ranks of non smokers you instantly become a more environmentally friendly person because you no longer pose a health threat to those around you through second hand and third hand smoke contamination. As a non smoker, you are contributing to a healthier environment by not consuming non-biodegradable cigarette butts.

The decision to quit smoking becomes an easy one when you learn some of the benefits of becoming a non smoker. It should be easier to make the decision to stop smoking. Non smokers are healthier, happier, and more socially acceptable people. The greatest gift you can give yourself is to become a non smoker as soon as possible and it’s a lot easier than you thought to accomplish with the help of hypnosis for smoking cessation.
