WHY DOES QUITTING TOBACCO SEEM DIFFICULT?

Nicotine is a very powerful drug that affects your mood,focus and your thinking too.The more you use it,the more your body ask for it.That is why quiting tobacco use seems so hard.It is not because you are week willed or irresponsible.

DO I REALLY NEED TO QUIT?

Tobacco use is one of the most significant risk factors to a healthy life,but not the only one.Importantly,it is one of the few controllable risk factors and thus,has a multiplier efect on the non-controllable risk factor like age,family history of diabetes,heart disese,etc.For example,for those who were both obese and currently smoking,risk of circulatory diseses increased 6 to 11 times even under the age of 65.Similarly,smoking a cigarette raises the blood pressure by 5-10 mm Hg for about 30 minutes,greatly increasing your risk of heart disease or stroke.If thise is combined with drinking a cup of coffee,the effects are bigger and last longer

Here is a small questionnaire that will help you assess how a combination of factors in addition to tobacco use will add to your health risks.A higher score makes it imperative for you to remove or reduce the controllable health risks like smoking and obesity or even the indirectly contollable health risks like obesity.
