A majority of the world's population is suffering from the harmful effects of cigarette smoking, and only a very low percentage of it will successfully quit the habit. Once an individual starts to smoke, it is very hard to cease it.

Smokers have their own reasons why they are into this kind of addiction, for example:

1. They say that smoking gives them a feeling of relief and relaxation during times of stress because somehow their way of breathing is slowed down by puffing a cigarette.
2. Since teenagers are a common category of smokers in society, they have their own reasons why they engage with such a habit. Advertisements on cigarettes have a big influence because it usually shows beautiful sceneries and women that are attractive enough to make the smokers think that smoking is a beautiful thing to do.
3. 'To fit in' is also a reason why they smoke, since almost everybody is doing it. They also think that it makes them look good especially in social gatherings.

Whatever their reasons are, there are also explanations why smokers have to kick this bad habit away from their lifestyle. Here are the following benefits that you can get if you were to quit:

1. Three days without puffing a single cigarette can make your blood pressure return to normal, the nicotine and carbon monoxide are minimized by 50%, the oxygen level in blood also returns to normal state, and makes it easier for you to breathe.
2. You become more physically fit and your endurance for heavy work is increased.
3. Imagine the money you can save if you don't have to buy cigarettes again.
4. Smoking greatly affects your appearance. You can have darkened lips, yellow teeth and nails, and dark gums.
5. Smoking also affects your fertility. For men, it affects the sperm production and quality that can result to impotence; and there is a high risk of miscarriage for women.
6. Babies who are born to smoking mothers are likely to be premature and have lesser weights. They are also prone to early death after being delivered.
7. You can get fatal diseases for smoking like cancers in lungs, bladder, stomach and kidney to name a few.
8. Pneumonia, heart diseases and osteoporosis are also products of smoking.
9. Your family will be in less danger in the so-called second hand smoking which effects are doubled.

The above reasons will somehow urge the smokers to quit. However, their usual excuse is that it is hard to start doing it and stopping it for good. It is not about quitting in the literal sort of way; it also has steps on how to do it.

1. Start by minimizing the number of sticks you consume everyday. As the days go by, you will be surprised that your craving to smoke is lessened.
2. Try substituting chewing gums or foods instead of cigarettes.
3. Consult an expert to give you psychological, and health information about coping up with your adjustment.
4. Talk to someone you know who had successfully kicked his smoking habits. It will surely give you enough inspiration that if he did it, so can you.

To quit smoking is never been easy especially to those who are very dependent to it. But it only takes determination, discipline, inspiration, and hard work to be victorious in your fight against smoking.
