Inhalation of fumes of any kind has fatal potential to the human body. Whether its smoke from a wood fire, or fumes rising from a chemical; inhaling something that the lungs aren't equipped to handle can and will eventually trigger mild to severe health complications. While certain inhalant are more toxic than others, one that stands out far above the rest is cigarettes. Cigarettes, from their 1864 debut in the first American cigarette company, have been causing a variety of problems the worldwide over. Yellow teeth and the noxious lingering odor of smoke are the 'better' side effects of smoking cigarettes. Those might seem like very manageable side effects; but when you add risk of emphysema or lung cancer, smoking takes on a whole new deadly prospective. In America, cigarettes account for 18.34% of annual deaths. Yet time and time again, smokers keep buying, for many intents and purposes, a premature death. The reason why is very well known, cigarettes are very addicting because of their nicotine; and such a deadly addiction can only end in tragedy unless the habit is stopped in time.

The human body is designed to process two major types of gases, nitrogen and oxygen; both of which make up our atmosphere. Cigarette smoke falls into neither of those categories. We are not meant to inhale smoke, which is what a smoker takes into their lungs every time they light up. Cigarette smoke over time will actually leave a layer of tar in the lungs. At first the layer will lead to a condition commonly called smoker's cough. Smoker's cough is a very loud hacking cough that is usually accompanied by thick sputum. When the smoker reaches this point, it's vital that the smoking stops because from this stage, lung cancer is imminent. Smoking is also has financial repercussions as well. Those with a daily smoking habit might not realize the rising monthly expenses to support that habit; but when you apply for health insurance, or when current health insurance rates start to rise; it will become all too clear. Serious health complications and financial insecurity are the 'rewards' for smoking. Quitting is the most beneficial solution that any smoker can take.

Most moderate to heavy smokers are mildly addicted to the cigarettes they smoke. This becomes more evident by the number of cigarettes the individual smokes in a day. While a pack a day is ten times worse than one a day, the fact that the cigarette becomes a need for the smoker is a huge problem either way. Smoking addiction is equivalent to the need to eat; although smoking is truly killing the body; that's why when one wants to learn how to stop smoking, it's vital that the habit is stopped slowly enough to not cause a relapse. There are many known methods on how to stop smoking; but it comes down to the individual on what the most effective method for them will be. Consulting a doctor and obtaining an accountability partner of sorts is a great first step to quitting the most preventable cause of premature death.

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/
