IT'S TIME TO QUIT!
Every time you light up a cigarette, you are that much closer to developing significant health issues. Even more alarming is the harm you are doing not only to yourself but to those people around you.
Second hand smoke carries the same dangers as regular smoking. Those same carcinogenic chemicals found in regular smoke are also found in second hand smoke. The risks of exposure to second hand smoke includes:
- Infertility issues & miscarriage
- Heart attack
- Lung cancer, asthma
LOOK AT THE DATA
The data is accurate. You could choose to stay in a state of denial by putting your head in the sand pretending that it isn’t true. But the reality is that with every cigarette you smoke, you are increasing the likelihood that you will develop significant health issues. If that wasn’t enough to make you want to stop, the knowledge that you are also jeopardizing the health of your family and loved ones may be the incentive that you need.
When you consider the financial commitment to this very successful smoking cessation program, also consider the financial cost of buying the cigarettes needed to support your detrimental habit.
According to the NY State law, there is a minimum that can be charged for cigarettes by the pack & by the carton (NY State Department of Taxation & Finance) with wide ranges in the cost noted throughout the State. The average cost of a pack of cigarettes is $13.95 and the cost of a carton of cigarettes is $120.60. Please note that these costs will fluctuate within the area you live and the cost may be lower when purchased on a NY State Indian Reservation because of an exemption from certain taxes (although there appears to be ongoing pending legislation regarding these exemptions). Remember these are only the MINIMUM costs calculated before additional costs are factored in. Also note that the totals listed below are ONLY average estimates:
SMOKING: The cost to your wallet and your health!
1 pack of cigarettes: $ 13.95 ( Pack a day habit ) = $5,091.75 per year
1 carton of cigarettes per week: $120.60 (1½ + daily habit) = $6,271.20 per year
Now … the big question … how do you quit? You’ve tried everything: Nicotine gum, patches, medication, even cold turkey. You may have even had some temporary success but the cravings are overwhelming at times.
You kid yourself that you can limit your smoking to a few a day and that may work initially. But within a few days, maybe a few weeks, you are right back where you started. And you feel so lousy about yourself, thinking that you are weak and lack will power.
We all know that smoking is bad for you … that it causes a myriad of health problems. Here are some facts that we should all be aware of:
According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States.
Every day more than 3,800 children under the age of 18 will try their 1st cigarette.
Each year, nearly half a million Americans die prematurely of smoking or exposure to 2nd hand smoke.
Another 16 million live with a serious illness caused by smoking.
There are still nearly 40 million adults who still smoke cigarettes.
Nicotine is highly addictive and may harm teens’ developing brains.
Cigarette smoking damages nearly every organ of the body and can result in multiple diseases:
- Lung cancer, COPD, Emphysema,
- Asthma, Bronchitis
- Heart disease
- Oral cancers
- Esophageal cancers
- Circulatory issues
Okay … enough of self-recrimination! It’s time to do something positive, something that can free you from the habit, the addiction and the cravings associated with smoking.
