Ever wondered how much you spend on Cigarettes?
Are you happy playing Russian Roulette with your life ?
Quitting smoking has huge benefits with no downside. Most smokers believe it will be too hard to quit, but what if we made it easy ? What if we guaranteed you’d be a non smoker with no drugs or will power needed? What if we provided ongoing support? How much would it change your life and the lives of those around you by having your health, vitality and longer life all with more money to spend?
Along with nicotine, smokers inhale approximately 7,000 other chemicals in cigarette smoke. Over 60 of these are known to cause cancer.
Smoking harms nearly every organ in the body, causing many diseases, reducing health in general and shortening your life.
A lifetime smoker is at high risk of developing a range of potentially lethal diseases, including:
- Cancer of the lung, mouth, nose, larynx, tongue, nasal sinus, oesophagus, throat, pancreas, bone marrow (myeloid leukaemia), kidney, cervix, ovary, ureter, liver, bladder, bowel and stomach
- Lung diseases such as chronic bronchitis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which includes obstructive bronchiolitis and emphysema
- Coronary artery disease, heart disease, heart attack and stroke
- Ulcers of the digestive system
- Osteoporosis and hip fracture
- Poor blood circulation in feet and hands, which can lead to pain and, in severe cases, gangrene and amputation.
Smoking is currently identified as the largest cause of preventable deaths in Australia.
