Could quitting smoking change your life?
Smoking no longer has the attraction that it once did. The stylish cigarette cases that were only carried by cool people are no more. These days all packs seem to be branded with graphic photos of blackened lungs, yellow fingers or gross teeth. Sparking up and you will be shunned out of public places and met with repulsed looks. It just isn’t cool anymore, but if you ditch the cigarettes could it really change your life?
You will have more money
Smoking isn’t just an unhealthy habit, it is an expensive one. The price of cigarettes has been hiked to discourage people but unfortunately, most smokers are already addicted so the cost won’t put them off. Smoking related illnesses cost the Healthcare system in Canada billions of dollars every year. If you smoke just 20 a day, you could be spending thousands every year just to maintain your habit. Imagine how much cash it would free up if you quit for good.

Quitting smoking won’t turn back time but it can definitely help you enhance the way you look now. It is no secret that smoking gives you yellow fingers, stains the teeth and starves the skin and hair of nutrients. It can leave hair brittle and as it can also cause loss of appetite many smokers end up looking gaunt and malnourished. Many studies show that smokers have lower levels of vitamin C in their bloodstream and as it is necessary for healthy skin and hair, lack of it can seriously impact your appearance.
