I make no excuses for the fact I believe that there are spiritual answers to things that baffle many in this world. If you don't like the word spiritual, then call it what you want but how can we say we've ever been logical people if we've always known how bad smoking was and is for us and at the same time we simply can't quit. If you were looking at this from a purely medical perspective then it is entirely possible that smokers could be considered somewhat insane. How many times and how many of us have said " I want to quit and I will quit some day" but honestly, the days, months and years go on and we simply don't quit at all.
If you've stumbled across this article and you're a heavy smoker who is already beginning to feel that you are too tired to smoke, then consider quitting this minute. Don't wait for tomorrow because tomorrow may never come. Do you want to quit? I'm sure most of us do and all it takes is for us to put down those cigarettes and to stay away from nicotine for a few days until it leaves our system.
In the first few days of my own quit I needed all the encouragement I could get, so I repeatedly searched google to find out what short term benefits we can expect if we quit smoking for an hour, a day, a few days etc. Let me give an example --- In as few as 12 hours after quitting smoking, the carbon monoxide in your body decreases to lower levels. In turn, the amount of oxygen in your blood increases to normal levels.
Once we make it past those few days and nicotine is out of our system, we will really benefit from knowledge about our addiction and for me I needed to come to blogs like this either to see how other people were doing or to blog myself. Give it a go if you are shy because these blogs are anonymous. Tell people what you think and don't worry about being technically incorrect as I honestly feel it does not matter how we get through the early days but just that we somehow get through. That we get through enough days so that we are more relaxed and in a position to think about what we've been doing all along. I think that a bit of quit time gives us the opportunity to be more objective about things, especially our addiction to nicotine
