We all know the fact-smoking is a big health hazard stiil we cant stop it. We cant stop it knowing it increases blood preassure, upset normal pulse rate by ruining normal and healthy blood circulation, accumulating carmon monoxide insisde our body, carbon monoxide when binds with hemoglobin, hemoglobin (blood) cant carry any more oxygen for breathing! Smoking decreses lung function by 10% to higher with time, increasing risk of lung cancer, increases risk of heart attack at a earlier age! Still we cant stop smoking. We know some country already banned smoking in public place including UK and US. We still cant quit! What should we do? May be remind some interesting facts we will be benifited by if we stop smoking right now: In 20 minutes of time blood pressure and pulse rate retun to normal In 1 hr circulation starts improving In 20hrs Carbon Monoxide is removed from the body In 1 week bronchinal tubes begin to relax and U can breath easier In 1 month Circulation improves a lot thru the whole body, will get more oxygen to breath! In 1 yr Lung function improves more than 10% In 10 yrs risk of lung cancer and heart attack will be the same as the person who never smoked. So remember will get benifit starting right after 20 minutes if we stop smoking NOW!!!
