>>>>>>The Good Things That Happen After You Quit Smoking<<<<<<

Your body starts to recover in as little as 20 minutes....

In only 20 minutes after giving up

Your blood pressure and your pulse rate return to normal.

What this means to you:
Raised blood pressure and high pulse rate both put strain on your heart, increasing your risk of a heart attack. The minute you stop your risk is reduced.

Only 8 hours after giving up

The carbon monoxide levels in your blood are halved.

What this means to your health:
Carbon monoxide from smoking can also produce distortions of time perception, psychomotor and visual impairment and negative effects on cognitive skill. Reducing the level of carbon monoxide in your blood will reduce these problems. Carbon monoxide reduces the uptake of oxygen from the lungs - the higher the levels of carbon monoxide, the lower the levels of oxygen. Oxygen is vital for the functioning of all energy systems in the body; so as soon as you cut carbon monoxide levels, you will experience enhanced energy levels.

Just 24 hours after giving up

Carbon monoxide is eliminated from the body.

What this means in plain English:
Look forward to better sports performance, with stronger endurance, lower levels of fatigue, improved recovery after exercise and a lower heart rate for each level of exercise.  It means being able to walk more than a few steps without getting 'winded'.

In only 48 hours after giving up

Nicotine is eliminated from the body.

What this means to your comfort:
Nicotine has a number of unpleasant side-effects on the body. It can act as an emetic (cause vomiting) and it can produce stomach upsets. It raises blood pressure, and increases the likelihood of hypothermia and seizures. Get rid of the nicotine and you will get rid of these symptoms.

As little as 2-21 weeks after giving up

Your circulation improves.

What does this mean to my personal health?
Bad circulation causes numerous problems, ranging from persistently cold feet, slow skin healing, Raynaud's disease (painful numbness and loss of sensation in fingers) and peripheral vascular disease (PVD) which can even lead to limb amputation. Giving up smoking will reduce your risk of most circulation problems.

(Donna's note:  I actually cared for a woman in the hospital who had Raynaud's Disease so bad that the tips of three of her fingers on one hand and four on the other were completely black (necrotic-dead tissue & muscle), and she cried whenever they were touched or bumped.  It was heartbreaking, and yes, she confessed that she had been a very heavy smoker.  I didn't want to know when the amputations were scheduled.)

After just 1 year

Your risk of a heart attack falls to about half that of a smoker.

What this means to you and your loved ones:
Each year, tobacco smoking accounts for around 26,000 deaths from coronary heart disease in the UK - approximately 17 percent of all heart disease deaths. The UK has one of the highest heart disease deaths in the world.
  From 1995 to 1999 an average of 442,398 Americans died each year of smoking-related illnesses – 33.5 percent of these deaths were cardiovascular-related.  Smoking costs Americans more than $157 billion annually in health-related economic costs.

Luckily, giving up will quickly start to reduce your risk.

After just 10 years

Your risk of lung cancer falls to about half that of a smoker

What this means to your own longevity:
In 1999, 22 percent of all cancer deaths were due to lung cancer, making it the most common form of cancer death. Over 80 percent of all lung cancer deaths are caused by smoking. Each year, more people die prematurely from smoking than die from automobile accidents, drug abuse, AIDS, and alcohol combined.
Giving up is the most important thing you can do to reduce your risk. 

After 15 years - it's like you got a reprieve

Your risk of a heart attack is the same as someone who has never smoked.

What this means to you:
A better chance of enjoying a long, healthy life!  And, yes, it's definitely worth it!  Just ask anyone who's gone through extensive (and expensive) cardiac bypass surgery... was it really worth it to smoke all those years?  I think you know the answer in your heart already.....

(Conclusion of a double-blind test on the effectiveness of Nicotine Replacement Therapy, counselling, willpower, hypnotherapy, NLP, and the *****system)


“Although most of the therapies had a measurable effect on the outcome, the efficacy of each was limited by the expectations of the patient.  Hypnotherapy and NLP showed the most consistent results, and the *****system was shown to be completely effective when followed up after 3 months in 95% of cases”


Law & Tang (1995) Arch.Intern.Med. and Ahijevch et al (2000) Int J Clin.Exp.Hypn

This highly respected, completely independent report came to the inescapable conclusion that the very same system you’ll read everything about in this E-Book is by far the most effective method of stopping smoking the world has ever known (That's why it's been kept a secret!)


Just in case you have any fears about the system I’ll try to make it completely clear to you.  The report investigates the unique combination of advanced techniques that have been developed by top experts in the field of human behaviour over recent years, and one of these techniques was hypnotherapy.   Return to the home page to learn more about "The Easy Way To Quit Smoking When Everything Else Fails" by Cameron Kerr and how it can help you stop now.
