We all know smoking is bad for us and that it can lead to things like lung cancer and heart disease, but there are many other health risks involved with smoking of which many of us may not be aware. Quitting smoking is the best way to reduce these health risks and the benefits of quitting can be immediate:
However, the benefits of quitting start within the first 20 minutes, at which point your heart rate and blood pressure drop. Within the first eight hours, your nicotine levels fall by more than 93 percent and within 12 hours your blood oxygen level will return to normal.
Quitting isn’t easy, though. The article linked above gives some great practical advice for quitting, using exercise and diet, among other things. In addition, SunRose has tools that may help, such as our Smoke Out Diffuser Blend. Even better, you can pick up a bottle of Smoke Out as part of our Pocket Inhaler Gift Set, so you can carry it with you everywhere.
