Quit Smoking to Feel Better !

A three-year study of 1,500 Wisconsin residents found that those who quit smoking—and blood tests were used to confirm that they had—felt a gain in happiness and less stress in their lives.

If you’ve been thinking about quitting smoking but haven’t tried because you’re afraid of how bad it will feel, think again. People who quit feel better and happier. Sure, there are problems at the start. But they do go away.

A study from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine found that people who quit reported a better quality of life and better mood than those who still smoked.

The study looked at surveys of over 1,500 Wisconsin residents who had taken part in a smoking cessation trial. The people were followed for three years and their smoking status was confirmed by blood tests to deal with the problem of people claiming that they’ve quit when they really haven’t.

Though researchers were unable to put an exact number on how much better the people who quit felt, those who quit felt a definite gain in happiness and less stress in their life.

There are lots of unexpected bonuses for quitters to look forward to. Most show up quickly.

No more 2 a.m. trips in the pouring rain when your cigarette supply unexpectedly runs out. Food tastes better than it has in years because your taste buds are coming back to life. People are friendlier; no more glares from folks who don’t like your smoke. These are all immediate benefits that should improve your mood and outlook. There’s also bound to be something you can do with all the extra money that won’t be going to the tobacco companies anymore. And of course, there are the health benefits.

Quitting smoking isn’t a bed of roses. It takes will and dedication. But it can be done. And there’s plenty of help available. Nicotine patches and gum seem to be the most popular aid, though some research has found their effectiveness questionable. Some people have found text messaging very helpful. Perhaps tweets can do the same.

The weather’s going to be awful until next spring. February trips to the store for cigarettes just don’t make for fond winter memories. That’s one reason that New Year’s is such a good time to quit. It only takes a second to start out. And it could make 2012 a very memorable year.

As the Wisconsin study points out, life without cigarettes isn’t only possible, it’s also happier.

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
    But think of if you added some great images or
    videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content
    is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could definitely be one of the very best in its niche.
    Terrific blog!

    This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start
    my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

    Are Natural green coffee bean extract Effective?
    The only thing that actually in reality works. You cannot know for sure is that catechins found in green tea inhibit these enzymes and protect you from contaminants.

    In the great pattern of things you get a B+ with regard to effort. Where exactly you actually misplaced me personally was on all the facts. As it is said, the devil is in the details… And it could not be more accurate here. Having said that, let me reveal to you just what did work. Your writing is definitely extremely powerful and this is most likely the reason why I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, whilst I can easily see the jumps in reason you come up with, I am definitely not certain of just how you seem to unite the details that help to make the conclusion. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your position but hope in the future you actually link the dots much better.

    The bugs that have been obvious in the previous versions have been fixed in this most recent model of the
    hack tool by embedding a supported cache mode that makes it undetectable and protected to make use of.

    The new change that comes with the usage of the tool is the rise within the pace of producing the
    sources to enable a continuous addition of the same to a players desk.
    This current version has related itself to the principle video
    games server which means whenever a player makes use of it; the main points will be modified directly on the video games server including the date, leaving you undetectable.
