Smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer in America. So many people have lost their lives due to the many side effects of smoking. Smoking can cause many types of lung disorders including but not limited to: lung cancer, emphysema, and others. There are other side effects that can occur from smoking. Smoking can lead to heart attacks, stokes, and high blood pressure as well. Death is the final step when smoking cigarettes. In America, 440,000 people will succumb to the effects of smoking annually. Out of all the causes of deaths in America, 18.3% is due to smoking cigarettes. One fifth of the nation's deaths will be a result of smoking; yet people not only continue to smoke, but new people start every year. For the new smokers it's normally peer pressure and exposure at a young age (second hand smoke) that leads to taking up smoking. But for those that are smoking regardless of the warnings don't always keep smoking because they want to; on the contrary it's an involuntary decision that they're body makes: an addiction.

Smoking addiction ranges differently from person to person. Some people are able to give up smoking whenever they're ready, while others might need the assistance of a rehabilitation facility in order to quit permanently. There are numerous methods and techniques on how to quit smoking, however, in order to find the appropriate method of how to quit smoking, the individual in question needs to be evaluated. If the path to how to quit smoking for good is unclear, the best place to start with is a family physician or counselor (when applicable). Doctors know the body inside out, and with access to the smokers files, will understand how the smoking is affecting the body, and how fast the smoking needs to stop. Doctors can give access or advice to many products that can suppress the desire to smoke. They can also help to point in the right direction for counseling or support groups aimed on quitting. If a doctor or counselor is not available, there are many smoking hotlines that can help to start the process of detoxifying the body.

Detoxifying is the next step after finding the support needed; and the only way to detoxify is to eliminate the contact with cigarette smoke. Cigarette fumes are very noxious, so just like alcohol they have to run through the system. Counseling at this point is very vital. Many will experience withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, headaches, and body quakes. During the detoxifying stage, chemicals like caffeine or any equivalents should not be consumed; they'll add to the discomfort of withdrawal symptoms.

The final stage in quitting smoking involves staying clean of smoking. Finding a support group to help stay strong through the detoxifying stage is the important part of how to quit smoking. The final part that will be done forever more is staying clean. Having friends, family, or others that are supporting in the effort to quit will help substantially.

Quitting smoking is imperative to living. Smoking has been shown to immediately affect the health of a smoker and everyone around him. There is no safe amount or safe time when it is OK to smoke, all smoking is deadly. Learn to quit smoking now and learn more ways to quit at http://quitsmokingfacts.us/
