Advertising has tricked smokers psychologically. How many smokers still believe today that it aids in digestion? Nearly every smoker, if asked, will tell you they enjoy a cigarette after meals, but it’s actually the breathing pattern (long inhale, hold, long exhale) that a smoker enters into when they light up that relaxes them, but most smokers fail to realize it. Let’s be very clear here, nicotine does not aid in digestion, and neither do the other 4,000 chemicals in commercial cigarettes. In fact, cigarettes are one of the most detrimental and systemically damaging legal substances you can consume.
Every inhaled puff of smoke contains free radicals which inflict damage on every system in the body, especially the digestive track and the intestines. Smoking increases the risk of Crohn’s disease, gallstones, peptic ulcers and liver disease. The chemicals bond to the walls of healthy tissue in the esophagus, windpipe, and stomach, disordering DNA and causing the cells to degrade. I’m sure you know lots of dangers of smoking, you’ve “heard them all before,” but this is education about your vital organs, so bear with me for a minute. According to the American Diabetes Association, cigarette smoking has “demonstrable effects on blood sugar,” making type two diabetes more likely. Smoking also ages the tissues of the pancreas, which creates defects in the digestive system. You cannot live without your pancreas, and 95% of people who get pancreatic cancer will die from it. It’s the least “curable” cancer there is today. I’m here to make sure this NEVER happens to you!
This info really matters to you so keep reading: I promise to keep this part simple and to the point. Smoking impairs the lymphatic and immune systems, and can damage the soft tissue lining of the intestines. That’s why colon cancer is prominent in smokers. Although the liver doesn’t seem like part of the digestive system, it actually filters the nutrients and toxins from the blood, in a process called first-pass metabolism. Smoking severely constricts this liver blood flow. After long term use of nicotine, the body becomes dependent on it, recycling toxins back to the liver, and the result is constipation. The more you smoke, the worse it gets. The only solution is to get off nicotine and detoxify the liver, so e-cigarettes won’t help. BIG TOBACCO TARGETS WITH EVIL PRECISION! Do you know that the U.S., Japan, and China alone make up over 75% of the world’s smokers? It’s true. All over the world, children and teens still recognize the Marlboro Man and Joe Camel as being “cool,” and women have consistently been a target market for cigarette advertising, pushing the tall and slim look. The problem is that even if you’re tall and slim, you still get the same kind of cancer.
14AndOut addresses weight gain concerns:
This has been well researched and you will NOT put on weight once you know how and why that factor can easily be eliminated. You see, nicotine is a stimulant in the short term, so it kills appetite, but in the long term, it’s a depressant, so the concept of putting on weight when you quit smoking is a myth. People put on weight because they don’t understand nutrition, or appreciate it and don’t practice it, it’s not because they quit smoking the most toxic blend of chemicals on the planet! Trust me, when you stop puffing the cancer sticks, I am going to lead you down the yellow brick road to perfect health, and you will never look back. You will never question your weight and health again, because you will know the “top secret” reasons you were addicted to cigarettes and you will understand and appreciate the top reasons you will never smoke again, and you WILL NOT put on weight.
There are several strategies for maintaining perfect health and weight. I know what they are and I will share them. For now, there are more preliminary questions you should be asking yourself, so just keep reading and learning. You are doing the right thing!
Kill the urge, cut the habit!
Over 2 years ago, I quit eating meat and became a vegetarian, but only after I learned what most U.S. corporate run farms and feed lots were doing to animals to “beef them up” and make more money. They give them hormones, and they abuse them by feeding them the wrong foods, like corn and genetically modified alfalfa, and the animals live in filthy, confined quarters, rarely if ever seeing sunlight. Then they give them antibiotics for their infections – lots of antibiotics. Then they slaughter them inhumanely, and the toxic meat is bleached and treated with ammonia, to make sure YOU don’t get sick, initially, because if you got sick from it the same day, or a few days later, you could sue them or politicize it and ruin their name or brand. But when you eat it, you do get sick eventually, and you can end up with cancer, of the prostate, or the bladder, or colon, or stomach, and so on, all as a result of ingesting those hormones and chemicals. You can do the same thing with cigarettes. Learn to despise them for what has been done to trick you into becoming sick. Kill the urge, the desire, the “want of,” and you cut the habit
