If you are a smoker, you already know that smoking is bad for you. Inhaling tobacco smoke has all kinds of nasty side effects—it increases your heart rate, elevates your blood pressure, and puts you at a heightened risk for lung, throat, and mouth cancer. But for many former smokers, the motivation to finally kick the habit isn’t necessarily as much in the scary consequences as in the immediate health benefits.
Right after you stop smoking, your appearance will dramatically improve. The simple truth is that smoking deprives your skin of oxygen, causing premature aging to set in. Within days, your skin will be smoother and more radiant, your hair will be shinier, and your nails will be stronger. Maintaining your figure is already difficult enough, but smoking can set your hormones into overdrive and adversely affect your endocrine system. This causes many smokers to carry extra fat in the tummy. When you quit, your body will naturally redistribute this weight as it returns to homeostasis. Not to mention that as your lung capacity increases, hitting the gym, hiking, biking, and even walking to your car after a long workday will no longer seem strenuous or exhausting. Finally, quitting smoking will reinvigorate your senses of taste and smell, dramatically enhancing the pleasure of eating.
If smoking is dragging you down, hypnotherapy can help. As former smokers throughout Philadelphia can attest, hypnosis really works for clients who are truly committed to quitting.
