First, let me say that I know how you feel. You've been smoking for quite a while now and you know that you need to quit. When you try, you find it's much more difficult than you ever imagined.
People who smoke can give you a hundred reasons why they smoke and a hundred more why they should quit. So why are there still so many people lighting up? It's simple, really. Nicotine is an addiction, just as powerful as the worst narcotics In fact, nicotine is so bad that former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop released a study showing that nicotine a drug at least as addictive as heroin, and if it were to be released today nicotine would be classed as a class C narcotic, the same as heroin or cocaine. When you take a drag on a cigarette, hundreds of chemicals are introduced into your body. The most addictive of those chemicals is nicotine.
So, now you know that nicotine is a drug just like cocaine, marijuana, and heroin, and that's why it's so darn hard to quit. When your body is used to having that drug in its system, deprivation can cause some real problems. It's not just a psychological dependence, it's a physical addiction. Those problems keep you from quitting completely and getting on with a healthier lifestyle.
Some Say There's No Hope, But I Know There Is!
That's because I found this amazing book, "Stop Smoking, Kick The Habit Now!" I got so excited about it's amazing advice that I just had to share it with YOU!
Smoking kills ! It's a fact. A 2000 study by the Center for Disease Control listed Tobacco as the leading preventable cause of death in the U.S. Tobacco usage is responsible for over 18% of all deaths in the U.S. every year. That's not all. You're not the only one at risk from your smoking habit. Hundreds of thousands of people get sick every year because of smoking - either directly or indirectly.
Thousands of children suffer the effects of secondhand smoke from their parents or caregivers. If you're smoking, some of those at risk from second hand smoke could be your loved ones. But I don't have to tell you that. You already know. That's why you're reading this letter!
Consider the horrifying statistics:
1 out of every
5 deaths in the United States every year can be directly linked to smoking
Did you know that an in depth health study of over 100,000 (that's right, over 100,000!) nurses by no less than Harvard University found that quitting smoking has dramatic effects on your health? In fact, it boggles the mind just how much your health can improve by quitting smoking, and how fast it can improve.
You probably thought that you've ruined your health forever by smoking, so maybe quitting wouldn't really be worth it. But it would be worth it, because you can get your health back if you quit smoking, and faster than you thought possible, too. Harvard researchers discovered that women who stopped smoking were rewarded with a 47% reduction in death from heart disease and a 21% reduction in death from lung cancer in only 5 years! That means quitting now will pay big health dividends in just a few short years.
That's right, quitting smoking will give you great health benefits, and fast! Even more promising is that the study revealed that 30 years after quitting their cigarette habit, subjects had virtually the same risk of dying from heart disease and lung cancer as non-smokers. That means that even if you�ve smoked for a long period of time, it's never too late to quit. So, there goes another one of your excuses!
Smoking reduces life expectancy by 7 to 8 years
Secondhand smoke has caused millions of deaths.
Cigarettes contain over 4,000 chemical compounds and 400 of
those are toxic
You are introducing dangerous
substances into your body every time you take a puff. Smoking
is a huge health risk. There's no denying that! So why are
there so many smokers? The reasons are many:
I don't want to gain weight if I quit
I'm too addicted
I've smoked for years - why stop now?
Well, remember the Harvard University study? It's never too late to quit!
These are only excuses, though. They are words that smokers say so that they don't have to deal with the reality and hardship of quitting. And quitting is hard, there's no doubt about it, but it doesn't have to be as hard!

Think about how much money you spend every week on cigarettes. I know, for many people, it is well over $50. In one week, you can spend over $50 (and the price of cigarettes keeps going up)feeding a habit that did
nothing but leads to deteriorating your health and makes your clothes, car, and home stink. Maybe you used to joke
that someone had to keep the convenience stores in business, but the reality is that you're ashamed. $50 could go a long way at my house, and I'm sure it could at yours too.
With gas reaching $4.00 a gallon, and food prices spiraling out of control, there are other things to spend your money on. How many people can afford to set a $50 bill (or more) on fire each and every week?
It's Time To Stop throwing your money away on cigarettes! Think about this. If instead of spending $50 a week on cigarettes, you invested that money, do you know you could retire with a huge stack of money? Would you like that? I thought so. Here are the astonishing numbers on just how much money quitting smoking could mean to you, just in case you were curious.
Let's say instead of smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day, you invested the money and got only an 8% return. If cigarettes are $5.50 a pack, that's $11.00 a day you're spending on smokes. But wait! It gets better. You spend that $11 on cigarettes 7 days a week, 365 days a year, so it really adds up in a hurry. 365 days x $11 = $4,105 you're wasting on cigarettes each and every year! Wouldn't you really like to do something else with that money?
If you're 30 years old now and invested your savings from quitting smoking at only 8% (Easy, your 401k, IRA, or pension plan is probably doing way better than that), by the time you are 65 years old you would have over half a million dollars, just because you quit smoking! Actually, you'd have $567,523, and that doesn't take into account inflation. Remember, cigarettes are only going to get more expensive, and because of the way society looks at smoking these days, taxes will probably rise even more too. If someone offered you a half a million dollars to quit smoking, do you think you'd take them up on it? I bet you would!
There are so many products on the market right now that promise to help you stop smoking. They're called Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT), and they
exist in the form of patches, gums, lozenges, and even nose
sprays. Some of these methods just might work for you. But,
some of them might not work and then you're out the money you
spent on them. Some of these 'cures' are pretty expensive, too. And did you know that, if they contain nicotine, they're not getting rid of your addiction, just moving it to a different form! Why would you want to do that? Especially when you don't have to.
When you order "Stop Smoking, Kick The Habit Now", you won't have to worry about wasted money. If you go to a discount store and buy a stop
smoking patch kit, you'll pay about $60 depending on where you live. You can order "Stop Smoking" right now for just CURRENTLY UN_A-V-A-I-L-A-B-L-E. That's a pretty tiny investment to make for your health and the health of those around you, don't you think? You'll spend more than that on cigarettes in the next couple of days, won't you?
Why not just get some of those patches or gum?
