Health Effects of Smoking Cigarette, Damage Caused To Your Arteries, Body, Wrinkles, Mouth and Lips.

Many smokers want to stop smoking, however most smokers who fail during the first few weeks of trying, mainly because of nicotine withdrawal symptoms. Smokers have tried various methods including nicotine gums, e-cigarettes, nicotine patches, and drug therapy. Nicotine is a very addictive drug and the withdrawal symptoms including physical, mental, and emotional issues makes quitting very difficult.

In our clinic consultations in Toronto and Greater Toronto Area, smokers usually refuse to acknowledge the long-term risks that smoking poses to their health and others (from second hand smoke). Instead of making a goal to stop smoking, smokers prefer to overlook the well-documented threats of lung cancer and heart disease that smoking can usher into their lives. This is because the effects are mostly unnoticeable and also comprise a possible point in the future that we rather prefer to ignore than to stop smoking right now.

 

Why Most Smokers Fail To Stop Smoking In Toronto And GTA?

  • Most smokers experience both a physical addiction and psychological habit making quitting extremely difficult.
  • Addiction to nicotine is very difficult to overcome. Many smokers are hooked on nicotine. Smokers experience a temporary high or ‘hit’ and depriving the body of that nicotine fix causes physical withdrawal symptoms and intense cravings.
  • Smoking is a repetitive and psychological habit. Habits are hard to break, especially when it has become a daily repetitive ritual.

 

Researchers used to focus on smoking from the perspective of an internal damage risk factor. But now, research shows that tobacco smoke has a considerably negative effect on the skin, arteries, and mouth – from premature aging to cancer. 

Unlike the lungs and heart which are positioned inside the body, the skin is an external organ that is visible and can also be touched and covers the entire body. And that’s why, even before you think about the bad effects of smoking on your heart and lungs, a new or and existing smoker should pause awhile to think of the potential damages your skin is in for when you continue to smoke.

Let’s take a closer look at the terrible impact of smoking on your skin. It should motivate you enough to give up smoking, especially when you understand that skin deep has a whole new connotation for smokers!

Skin Health Goes Deeper Than You Think

The skin on our face has been the object of attention for from the beginning of man. Beauty is epitomized in the texture and color of our facial skin. And we all spend large amounts of time and money in keeping our facial skin young and healthy. We all dread the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face, with the onset of age.

But for smokers, the signs of skin aging become evident at an even earlier age. Long-term or committed smokers are observed to develop crow’s feet and discolored skin, which give an unhealthy and aged look. Blood vessels and veins also begin to stand out of the skin in spidery formations.  

In a bid to combat premature aging, sagging looks of our facial skin, smokers turn in desperation to skin lotions and anti-aging beauty creams. In short, smoking is an expensive proposition because undoing its effects on skin can be very expensive, time-consuming and depressing too. The smart and sensible option therefore would be to say ‘no’ to smoking immediately.
