Why Should Anyone Quit Smoking?The health benefits of quitting start immediately from the moment of smoking cessation. Quitting while you are younger will reduce your health risks more, but quitting at any age can give back years of life that would be lost by continuing to smoke. By quitting — even for one day — smokers will be taking an important step towards a healthier life – one that can lead to reducing cancer risk.
Is smoking still a problem in the US?
Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the US, and yet 42 million Americans still smoke cigarettes — that’s about 1 in every 5 adults. As of 2012, there were also 13.4 million cigar smokers in the US, and 2.3 million who smoke tobacco in pipes — other dangerous and addictive forms of tobacco.
So, you’ve got three days: perhaps you should increase your desire to quit smoking, so that you can quit this Thursday, or definitely before Thanksgiving!
