Quitting equally benefits both male and females in this regard because the blood flow to and from the lungs is improved and the oxygen levels in the blood returns back to normal which results in higher energy levels. If you are planning on having a baby, you may also want to know that according to a study carried out in 2016, smoking tobacco cigarettes damages the sperm DNA.
In many cases, people who quit smoking end up gaining weight. This is because of the change in the intestinal flora which is disturbed once you start smoking and gets even more damaged when you quit, according to research. Over-eating can sometimes be a replacement for smoking due to cravings once you have quit, which is something to be aware of.
Lower your chances of arthritis
It might come as a surprise but even a couple of cigarettes a day can make you two times more prone to arthritis. The chances of a smoker to develop arthritis are so high, that one out of three patients turns out to be a smoker.
Better quality of sleep
If you’ve had issues with sleeping properly or you might have completely forgotten what sleeping consistently feels like, then you should try quit smoking ASAP. According to a research, 11% of smokers deal with some sort of insomnia. The research concluded that one cigarette reduces sleep time by one minute.
Reduced risk of diabetes
According to research carried out at the California State Polytechnic University, combustible tobacco smoking can worsen the diabetes condition.
Low risk of heart attacks
Some smokers may argue that they smoke instead of eating junk food but according to research, even with the post-cessation weight gain after quitting, the chances of a cardiovascular arrest are incredibly decreased.
The oxygen levels in the blood are increased once a person stops smoking. Not only are the toxic carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide levels reduced, but the nutrients which are delivered to the cells increase within the blood flow, which results in smooth and shiny skin.
Given all the benefits of quitting combustible tobacco cigarettes, the best move is the one made as fast as possible. There are so many options out there that can help you deal with your nicotine addiction. Some argue E-cigs can help you quit smoking for good by gradually decreasing the amount of nicotine, with products such as the e-liquid. Different methods work better for different people who want to quit smoking, but you can definitely find what works best for you.
