A report published in JAMA INTERNAL MEDICINE by researchers at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, was an analysis of data from 2006 through 2012 on data from two national health surveys. The analysis showed the huge toll of smoking on smokers' health. At the time of the report, smoking was linked to 14 million cases of major illness in the United States. The report concluded that for each death caused by smoking in the U.S. at that time, fifteen to twenty people were suffering with a major disease caused by their smoking habit.
I once had a close friend justify her smoking habit with the comment, "Everyone has to die of something". Well, she died of lung cancer that spread to her brain. Major diseases like cancer and heart disease are often side-effects of smoking. If you have been thinking about quitting smoking, don't wait until you have a bad diagnosis.
Recently a message was left on my voice mail, I'd like to share with you."Hi, Jennifer, This is Elizabeth _____, Today is the first anniversary of quitting smoking with your help. Thanks to you, I'll never smoke another cigarette. I feel so much better. My life is better. My grandkids get to keep me. Thank you so much." Don't wait for a major illness to quit smoking. Hypnosis can help you stop and BE WELL.
