Quitting Smoking for the New Year

As the calendar flipped a page, we welcomed a new year and for many people this means embarking on the traditional New Year’s Resolutions that so many of us commit ourselves to in the quest for a fresh start. Certainly one of the top resolutions for many people is to quit smoking and it’s with just cause. Smoking is one of the leading causes of cancer as well as the leading cause of cancer-related deaths. Some of the types of cancers associated with smoking include lung, pancreatic, esophageal, stomach, and bladder cancers. There are over 7,000 chemicals contained in tobacco smoke, over 200 of which are harmful in some way and over 65 of which are known carcinogens – including formaldehyde, arsenic, and ethylene oxide.
Those who smoke are playing with fire in terms of the potential for the development of cancer. They are also putting themselves at risk for a variety of other conditions such as emphysema, asthma, high blood pressure, heart disease, and more.
Now is the time to quit smoking and put yourself in a position to be as healthy as possible in this new year. All too often, however, that is much easier said than done. The nicotine contained in tobacco is physically addictive and addressing that addiction – as well as giving up a habit that many have come to rely on for stress relief, social comfort, and more – can be daunting to say the least. But it’s important to start replacing this bad habit with healthy habits such as exercising, eating healthy, and hydrating your body adequately.
If you are unable to quit smoking on your own or with the help of over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapies, it’s important to see your doctor to determine what courses of treatment may be options for decreasing your dependence on nicotine. The right support and plan will allow you to be successful in quitting once and for all – putting you on the path to getting healthy and reducing your risk factors for developing cancer and a range of other conditions.
