Smoking doesn't just have a detrimental effect on your health directly in the form of increasing the chances of heart disease and cancer but also impacts negatively on a whole lot of other aspects of human health.
For example people who smoke are less likely to consume a healthy breakfast. Instead they tend to start to crave their first cigarette and drink strong black coffee all day. They think that they are being virtuous by eating very little but in fact it's not good for them and they are more likely to eat unhealthy snacks. A healthy breakfast is probably the most important meal of the day and smokers tend to avoid it.
Another thing which is characterized by smokers is lack of sleep and poor quality sleep. Nicotine is not conducive to healthy sleep and thus smokers often feel groggy in the morning which makes them turn to their cigarettes again.
Another detrimental side effect of smoking is that smokers avoid doctors. If any type of person should go to a doctor it should be a smoker but because they know that they will be given a talking too and let's face it you have to be in denial anyway to be a smoker, they claim to hate hospitals and doctors' visits.
Smokers never go to the gym or get exercise and tend to pour scorn on people who do. A smoker running on a treadmill is going to start wheezing and puffing pretty soon and look pretty stupid. Exercise makes you look better and feel better. It increases the chances of you being able to have good sex as you get older, it allows you to eat more calories throughout the day and it releases feel good hormones into your system. Much better than having a cigarette!
We have seen at Ukmedix News that so many people who quit smoking also give up all of the other bad habits that they have and so quitting smoking has a huge positive effect on their lives.
