We all know the benefits of stopping smoking; it improves your appearance, you will save extra cash and most importantly your health will be dramatically improved. The No Smoking ban has also meant we cannot smoke in public places, either. So why do people still smoke?
For most people, it is the addiction to nicotine which is the issue. This is the chemical which affects the brain and causes you to become hooked on smoking. Without it, your body suffers withdrawal symptoms which can be unpleasant. Some people try to quit smoking, but soon take it back up as they cannot cope with the lack of nicotine in their system.
If this is the case, then you should investigate into nicotine replacement products, like an electronic cigarette. This is considered the “healthier alternative to smoking.” E cigs contain eliquid which includes two main ingredients, nicotine and propylene glycol. The nicotine has 4 levels from a high nicotine dose to zero – this is the level you should aim for. You can use the product to effectively cut down your intake of nicotine. There is also a whole range of eliquid flavours including ice-cream, apple, tobacco, strawberry and even cheesecake. With this being healthier for you and for those around you it really is worth looking into if you want a brighter future.
There are other quit smoking products you could also use, like nicotine gums and patches, which are also nicotine replacement products. Some people also try meditation or acupuncture.
If you are interested in learning more about these products and many others, then maybe you should take a day out to visit the UK's 2012 No Smoking Campaign exhibitions.
The campaign visits 7 venues over the UK spreading over the months of October and November. At these events they provide useful tips, advice and presentations with the latest campaign theme.
