Let's face it; smoking is bad. Besides impacting your health, the habit takes its toll on your appearance, clothes and of course, your wallet!
As a new ex-smoker, I can say for sure that smoking affects your body in more ways than one, but the good news is, it's never too late to quit.
Of course, after many years of smoking, I decided to take the big step towards cessation.
Although it hasn't been easy, I can say that I've been seeing the fruits of my labor — it's really amazing!
So far so good, I've stayed away from cigarettes for one month — of course, I started experiencing the incredible health benefits right from day one up until this moment.
In this video, I'm going to let you in on how my health changed during the first month of giving up on the habit.
And of course, I hope it motivates you to quit smoking once and for all!
Here's What Happened After I Stopped Smoking For One Month
For starters, you're likely to experience the amazing benefits of quitting in as little 20 minutes — that's just how fast your body heals!
Fast forward to one month, I started noticing great improvements in my respiratory health.
Yes, I always experienced nasty coughs and shortness of breath in the past.
Even cases of sinus pain and congestion was a norm. But the good news is, I've been recovering from these symptoms ever since I quit — one month down the road, I know for sure that I feel better now.
Essentially, the moment you stop inhaling cigarette smoke, cilia in the lungs comes back to life.
In essence, the delicate lung tissues begin to regrow and function like they ought to.
For the most part, cilia help to move particulates (in this case, toxins from cigarette smoke) we breathe in back out of the lungs.
But unfortunately, smoking causes them to be clogged with tar.
Of course, as mentioned earlier, the delicate lung tissues begin to function again after quitting smoking.
And for those who might not know, shortness of breath is a smoker's disease that impairs your ability to breathe.
It actually took a toll on me back then, but I see amazing improvements today — just one month after quitting, I now breathe freely and easily.
That's not all — I also found it easy to perform a range of cardiovascular activities including running and jumping.
What's more, my dull sense of smell also improved — it was really amazing to smell subtle scents that have evaded me for years.
In addition to the health benefits, I also found that my confidence began to grow as time went by.
Of course, this new sense of empowerment has the potential to bring new positive relationships that can change other areas of your life.
All in all, the journey hasn't been easy, but I can boldly say the change is totally worth it!
It's all about settling in and allowing the smoke-free days pile up.
With time, you'll start enjoying the fruits of your labor! Best part?
The benefits continue on long after your first month; in essence, after years, you can be sure of being as healthy as can be. Good luck!
