Free quit smoking

Are you trying to quit smoking? You’ve thought about it time and time again. You’ve probably even tried and it just never worked out for you. The truth of the matter is you’re not the only one who has tried and failed. But then again, others didn’t have all the tools that could help them quit smoking and stay smoke free for life.

People always tell you to “just quit smoking already,” but they don’t realize that it’s not that easy. Smoking is a psychological, emotional, and physical addiction. Smoking becomes a reinforced need and it can become that much harder to quit if you have tried and failed before.

You have the ability to quit smoking; you were just never given the right tools to make it an easier journey.

Smoking and your Health

The two most common health concerns associated with smoking are emphysema and lung cancer, but there are many other ways that smoking can affect your health.

Smoking can alter your brain activity. Smoking has been found to affect the brain in a similar way as heroin by triggering the release of the chemicals in your brain known as opioids. Opioids play a role in soothing pain, increasing positive emotions, and giving a sense of reward. As smokers smoke the activity in these chemical receptors increases, causing the smoker to easily become addicted. Unfortunately, studies show that after a smoker has been smoking for awhile the chemical receptors for those opioids can lose 20 to 30% of activity which contributes to the nicotine withdrawal that so many smokers suffer from.

Smoking can increase your risk of developing cataracts. Cataracts cause the eye lens to become cloudy, leading to decreased vision. Smoking affects your vision in two ways. First, the direct inhalation of cigarette chemicals; second, indirect smoking lowers the body’s levels of antioxidants and certain enzymes known as “endogenous proteolytic enzymes,” which are known to help in the removal of damaged protein from the eye lens.

Smoking can reduce your sense of smell by polluting your nasal cavity, which also reduces your sense of taste since smell is so closely related to your ability to taste.

The thyroid controls how quickly the body burns energy, makes proteins, and how sensitive the body should be to other hormones. Tobacco smoke contains chemicals such as cyanide that can affect the function of the thyroid. It can cause what is known as anti-thyroid behaviors such as inhibiting iodide uptake and hormone synthesis. Studies show that smokers are more likely to have thyroid enlargement which can be a sign of a thyroid disorder, and smokers are twice as likely to develop Graves’ disease, a thyroid disorder that causes the bulging of the eyes, a thickening of the skin, and hyperthyroidism, causing increased speed of the body’s organs and intestines.

Smoking can cause premature aging of the skin by restricting the blood vessels in the outermost layers of the skin. This reduces blood flow to your skin, depleting it of oxygen and other important nutrients such as Vitamin A, which provides protection against skin damaging radicals. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin, which are fibers in your skin that give it strength and elasticity. Smoking not only affects your facial skin, but has been known to affect skin on other parts of your body such as your inner arms. Also, the “smokers face,” which are the facial expressions made while smoking (such as the pursing of the lips and the squinting of the eyes when smoking) can add to wrinkles around the eyes and mouth as well as the development of hollow cheeks, more prevalent in underweight smokers.

Oral health
Tobacco is a major contributor to dental health problems. Tar from cigarettes deposit onto the teeth causing discoloration and stains. Tobacco is a main factor in gum disease. In fact, smokers are four times more likely to suffer from advanced periodontal disease than those who have never smoked. Tobacco can damage your gum tissue by affecting the attachment of bone and soft tissue to your teeth. Tobacco reduces blood flow to your gums, depriving them of oxygen and nutrients that allow them to stay healthy. The same effects occur on skin tissue. This makes your gums more vulnerable to bacterial infection like periodontal disease. Tobacco chemicals have also been shown to hinder healing in patients with oral inflammation, oral wounds, or after oral surgery by weakening the immune system, making smokers more likely to lose teeth and not respond to treatment. Smokers are also six times as likely as non smokers to develop cancers of the mouth and throat. Smoking also tends to irritate the throat, giving smokers problems with coughing, hoarseness, and difficulty in swallowing.

Arms and Legs
Smoking can damage blood vessels in your heart, making it difficult for the heart to pump blood to the hands and feet, causing poor blood circulation. Smoking has been known to be a major factor in Buerger’s disease. Buerger’s disease is a disease of the arteries and veins in the arms and legs. It is characterized by a combination of inflammation and clots in blood vessels which impair blood flow. This eventually damages and destroys tissues, leading to infection and gangrene. Poor blood circulation can also lead to peripheral vascular disease in the legs, feet, arms, and hands. Both of these diseases may result in severe pain and can lead to amputation.

Nicotine withdrawals

When trying to quit smoking the biggest obstacle is nicotine withdrawal. Withdrawals are both physical and emotional. Physically the body reacts to the lack of nicotine and emotionally you are faced with changing your behavior. Both needs must be faced in order to successfully quit smoking. A smoker will normally feel physical withdrawals only a few hours after their last cigarette, but it is even greatest after 2-3 days. Symptoms include: dizziness, depression, frustration, anger, anxiety, irritability, sleep disturbances, concentration problems, headaches, and increased appetite that can last up to a few weeks. It is these symptoms that cause smokers to easily relapse after trying to quit smoking cold turkey.

There are many products out there to help you quit smoking, but when they only address one side of quitting, such as the physical side, you end up having a greater chance of failure.

To reduce this chance it is important to find a program that has products that contain ingredients designed to help you fight the physical withdrawals of quitting and that help you combat the emotional and behavioral side of quitting as well.
Natural ways to deal with nicotine withdrawals include exercise and getting more rest. Try taking a multi vitamin like CigArrest VitaGuard Smoker’s Vitamins that can help offset nicotine withdrawal symptoms and replenish depleted nutrients. Try CigArrest all natural tablets that include ingredients like Peruvian Bark (which helps to treat edginess, nervousness, and indigestion), Spurge Laurel (which helps sleeping problems), Calcium Phosphate (which helps treat headaches), and Nux Vomica (which helps treat insomnia and irritability). Also, chewing gum like CigArrest Gum, which also has ingredients to help offset nicotine cravings, can help you replace the oral fixation of smoking.

Nicotine addiction

Isn’t it crazy knowing all the health risks involved with smoking (like lung cancer and emphysema), knowing that there are over 4,000 chemical compounds present in inhaled smoke (many of which are known carcinogens), and yet you tell yourself, like so many others keep telling themselves, that you like smoking and that you don’t want to quit?

Don’t worry; it’s not your fault.

They call smoking an addiction for a reason, because it is one.

Some people can quit smoking cold turkey, but they are in the minority.

Smoking appeals not only on a physical level, but on a strong emotional one too. This is why it is so difficult to quit, but you can do it!

You need a program that doesn’t just help you deal with one side of the addition, but both. Studies show that programs that address both sides of the issue have a higher success rate. You need the all natural CigArrest system.

There may be many reasons why one would consider quitting smoking: for family, for health reasons, because the cost is just too high, or maybe all of the above.

Why the addiction?

The physical side of addiction

Your brain produces chemicals that help regulate your moods and if your brain doesn’t produce enough of these chemicals then you can end up with irritability and bad moods. Nicotine helps to stimulate the production of these chemicals. These chemicals include nor epinephrine, which regulates alertness and arousal, dopamine, which is part of your brains pleasure mechanism, and beta endorphin, which helps to lessen anxiety and pain.

Unfortunately these reactions to smoking are short lived and eventually you crave those feeling again. And sooner or later you trick your mind and body into thinking that smoking is the only way to induce these feelings.

The emotional side of addiction

Thinking back, you find that cigarettes have helped you in many situations: cigarettes have helped you relax in periods of time when you felt stressed or helped keep you more alert in periods of time when you needed to stay awake (like driving home late at night or when you needed to complete a project). Cigarettes might have helped you socially at a party, coffee house, or at work because you automatically have that link to other smokers. When you needed it, it was there for you.

The truth of the matter is you don’t need it as much as you think. You have the ability to be a confident, happy person, without the mood effects of cigarettes. But first you need to quit smoking. This is where the CigArrest program can help you. Nicotine can stay in your body between 2-4 days once you’ve given up cigarettes. This is why nicotine programs that offer to help you quit smoking can prolong your need for nicotine because your body will continue craving it.

Since CigArrest has no nicotine, you won’t have that problem. CigArrest equips you with everything you need to quit the nicotine addiction. CigArrest can help you fight the urge to light up with CigArrest Tablets, and with CigArrest Gum you can fight the oral fixation of smoking. CigArrest also provides you with VitaGuard Smoker’s Vitamins which helps fight cell damage that has been caused by smoking and helps strengthen your immune system. The welcome kit also includes an audio CD that helps you learn how to avoid smoking in any situation, and a program guide and exercise handbook to help you understand the program and to stay smoke free for life.
