It is not easy to quit smoking quitters take long time to fully quite smoking. A newly discovered, ingenious way to stop smoking is revealed in this article. Read on to learn what the big tobacco companies, pharmaceutical companies and therapists around the world don't want you to know.
First you must think about quitting.
Millions of parents still continue to smoke around their children knowing that cigarettes are filled with harmful poisons. Besides the fact that this would be a bad example to children, they still smoke. If the parents smoke most likely their children smoke too when they get older. Chemicals from cigarette smoking linger in the air for hours after a cigarette has been consumed. Even if it can't smell or seen the chemicals stay in the air and poison everyone who inhale it. Children and animals are not exempted from smoke sticks to their fur that they lick clean.
A few of the chemicals added to cigarettes are:
Tar – The same tar used to pave highways. This is the main cause for yellow teeth and fingertips.
Hydrogen Cyanide – This is a chemical used to kill rats. It's also been used in World War 2 as a weapon of mass destruction.
Acetone – This is an ingredient in nail polish remover.
Formaldehyde – This is the stuff used to preserve dead bodies like embalming.
Carbon Monoxide – Car exhaust. Do you really want this in your lungs?
Nicotine –. Chemical addiction. Nicotine has powerful pharmacologic effects (including increased heart rate, heart stroke volume, and oxygen consumption by the heart muscle) as well as powerful psychodynamic effects (such as euphoria, increased alertness, and a sense of relaxation). As is now well known, nicotine is also powerfully addictive.
In reality there are thousands of chemicals found in cigarette smoke, people are inhaling these poisonous chemicals and creating second-hand smoke that is also dangerous for others.
