I’m only a week into quitting after 24 years a smoker and the best advice I’ve had so far is from a former smoker: what are the benefits of smoking? I couldn’t answer it, there are no benefits. I also think about the suffering of cancer patients when the cravings are at their worst: do I want to suffer short term now for long term health or suffer long term then for long term illness?
One really big factor I’m noticing already is productivity. Most people tend to stand still while they’re smoking, on average for 5 minutes, 14 times per day. Over 1 hour of precious time per day spent jeopardising our health. I’m really looking forward to being able to say I am a non smoker. I’m looking forward to relaxing on a plane and enjoying the experience rather than craving a cigarette the entire flight and being grumpy.
There really are no benefits to smoking.
