Even Old Guys Can Kick The Habit

Updated on May 9, 2011

Kick The Smoking Habit

I know deep down inside you want to quit smoking but you also think it’s too late for you.  You think you are way too old to kick the habit.  The truth of the matter is if you are smoking you are not too old to stop the silly habit.  Every time you put out a smoke your body starts healing so why not put out that last one for good.  If you think you’re an old cronies and you can’t quit it is likely because you are too stubborn to kick the habit.

If you think you are old and quitting won’t improve your life then you are thinking through your butt and not with your brain.  I don’t care if you have been smoking for 100 years.  Your health will begin repairing itself the second you put down the last cigarette.  Even after 20 minutes you will see big changes.  Your blood pressure will go to normal as well as your pulse.  Eight hours after quitting half the3 nicotine and carbon dioxide in your blood stream will be gone.  Not sure about you but to me this is great news.

So I guess you are thinking you are too old to feel better about your breathing.  Not long after you quit you will notice a huge difference in your breathing.  Once you have cleared the mucous and crap from your body you will be able to have the jolly laugh again without starting to hack and cough.  So many things will change for the better when you stop smoking.  Only fools make the decision to continue smoking.

You will not believe the energy that will be restored after you stop the stupid addiction of putting a tobacco stick in your mouth.  You are going to want to exercise because you will feel so good.  You will no longer have the silly cigarette stealing the life from your body.

Want a heart attack then keep smoking.  Oh sure you can get one as a non smoker but let’s be honest we all know as a smoker the risks are way higher.  In real life I guess it is up to you which statistic you want to be a part of.  Personally in my case I like the fact that I am in the living statistics.

If you have failed in the past just chalk it up to an experience.  If you have been smoking a long time this may have happened and honestly it is okay.  Just understand why you failed and don’t let those things get in your way again.  There are new products on the market everyday that will help you quit smoking.  Just be honest to yourself and remember you have to want to quit.

Think of all the companies who charge lower premiums to non smokers.  As a smoker you are paying very high insurance.  So just think all the options that will be available to you when you finally decide to quit smoking.  I think you will be quite impressed with the savings you will receive.

Think of all the negatives that turn into positives after you quit.  There are so many good things that go on.  Your health gets better.  You won’t stink, food will taste better, and you will save a lot of money.  I could go on and on.  It is just the reason why quitting smoking really is a no brainer.  You continue smoking and lead the miserable life.  Quit and all things start going in the right direction.

One of the biggest things to think about when you quit smoking is how proud you can be of yourself.  Just think if you smoked for say 20 or 30 years and you quit.  That is an accomplishment that really should be up there or higher than winning a gold medal at the Olympics.  Once others see what you accomplish you never know you may even be their inspiration to quit.

I will never stop writing about quitting smoking.

I wasted 30 years of my life smoking and I intend on helping people not make the same mistake I made.

Anyone can feel free to contact me through Hubpages if they want some advice on quitting smoking.

One day at a time and one smoker at a time I believe one day we could live in a smoke free world.

      I am sorry for your loss. It is reasons exactly like this that I am going to fight the good fight.

      I wont give up because if I can stop just one child and or get one person to quit I feel I am on the right track.

      Right now I am just small but eventually I plan to get bigger and bigger. I plan on doing everything including looking for sponsors to help me on my journey.

      A very serious topic, and I'm glad that you quit smoking. We were sad to learn on July 2 that my cousin's husband died of lung cancer. He was only 59, but had smoked most of his life.

      Keep preaching!
