Ways How Smoking Messes Up Your Digestion

You are smoking cigarettes not eating them so smoking can’t be that bad for your stomach… can it? It can and it is. Like all good stories this begins at the beginning.

1. The Look To Die For

Cigarette smoke, unless you are doing something very wrong and/or original, comes through your mouth. That smoke slowly cooks your face, gives it a nice yellow hue.

Your mouth is a starting point of your digestive system, and the first thing smoke does, it gets rid of that boring white color from your teeth.

You might say that more color is good and yellow smile is like a yellow sun. If you get tired of brightening the day for everyone with your sunshine colored smile – a bit of elbow grease, stain remover and you are as good as new.

2. More Teeth, More Problem

The bigger problem is that smoking decreases the amount of air in your gums and stimulates growth of bacteria.

That’s why gum disease and tooth loss in adults is much more common in smokers. The most common excuse for smoking is “it calms me” but face it – smoking only creates problems and these problems just keep piling up.

But that is not important to you – you prefer smoothies anyways. Let’s see what cigarette smoke does to your stomach.

3. Feel The Burn

Your stomach is a bucket of acid which you use to digest food. It’s in your best interest to keep that acid in this bucket. You have a special valve that does that. Smoking allows acid to flow into food pipe.

You have things to do and you can’t spend every waking moment smoking but you still want to feel that great feeling. You are in luck as for those times when you are not sucking on a cigarette, smoking has conveniently weakened this valve.

This way smoking lets you realize your childhood dream of being a dragon by giving you a near constant heartburn.

4. Your Stomach Starts Eating Itself

Unfortunately it’s not all good news as smoking continues its mission and messes up with production of acid and protection of your bucket. Have you ever thought “how come acid dissolves my food but doesn’t dissolve me”? That’s because stomach is a place of harmony and peace.

Once you start introducing cigarette smoke or other crap, it’s like you are throwing stones at a sleeping lion. It will eventually wake up and tear your face off. In this case smoking messes up the stomach balance and you get painful sores, called ulcers, in your stomach.

Ulcers are more likely to heal if you stop smoking.

5. Spare Your Liver

Smoking does its magic on your organs indirectly as well. Good example is your liver. It is a filter that cleans your blood. When you smoke you add large amounts of additional chemicals to your blood and those are not vitamins.

Every filter has its limit. Smoking adds large quantities of toxins and increases oxidative stress on liver. Liver of a person who smokes is worse at filtering blood and is at a greater risk of shutting down completely.

Liver has a lot of work on its hands as it is. It already has an exciting and fulfilling life so by smoking you are not doing it any favors.

6. Good News Keep On Coming

Another “advantage” smokers have is an increased chance of getting Crohn’s disease. This disease helps you better understand jokes about diarrhea and stomach pain by making them painfully relatable. It is an inflammatory disease which can affect you anywhere in your digestive system – from anus to mouth.

Smoking increases the risk of getting this disease significantly and if you suffer from frequent stomach pains, diarrhea and experience fever and weight loss – see a doctor and quit smoking!

7. “Best” For Last

Finally smoking greatly increases the risk of developing cancer. Cancer is your own cell one day deciding that it does not want to be a productive member of the society that is your body.

Your body is like a city only the population of your body is in trillions. Smoking is the bad influence that pushes cells to turn to the dark side. Cigarette smoke bombards your cells with radioactivity and toxins that stimulate these negative mutations.

This is why smoking is a leading cause of mouth, lip, voice box, lung, esophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, colon and rectum cancer.

Smoking is just a fire, that in addition to all the toxins you would expect to find in a burning chemical plant also gives you nicotine.

Nicotine is a nasty thing by itself and if you think that it calms you or helps you to be more focused you are only fooling yourself. You are only very temporarily quenching withdrawal symptoms perpetuating this circle of misery.

 

Plug The Nutrient Drain From Your Body

Smoking contains over 4,000 chemicals, 200 of those can cross into your brain, and 60 of these chemicals are known to cause cancer. But these chemicals do something else they strip nutrients from your body.

The main vitamin stripped away by smoking is Vitamin C. The nutrient is so well known that its importance is often taken for granted and its in the list of trendy super foods simply because it’s so easily available and it’s hard to make it expensive.

Vitamin C boosts your immune system, maintains healthy bones and teeth, is essential for wound healing, helps makes collagen which we need for blood vessels, skin scar tissue and ligaments, plus it’s a powerful antioxidant which prevents free radical damage.

Of course free radical damage or tissue destruction, a little like rusting is caused by smoking.

In order to maintain some level of health you need to increase your vitamin C levels over and above normal requirements. The level would need to be considerable to counter act smoking. Most likely taken to bowel tolerance.

i.e. the amount you take that doesn’t give you diarrhea!

In order to completely balance out the nutrient drain you would need to take:

2500 mg of Vitamin C per day.

Alpha-lipoic acid 100 mg per day.

CoQ10 100 mg per day.

N-acetylcystine 1000 mg per day.

800 iu of Vitamin E daily

Carnitine 1000 per day.

And that is for starters. Plus fish oils, and bromelains and glucosamine, for inflammation, and Vitamin B 5 & 6 with Licorice for your depleted adrenals, not to mention green tea, turmeric, sulfur amino acids, dandelion tea to support your struggling liver, and on and on it goes!

The idea of consuming lots of supplements just to attempt to balance out your 4000 toxic chemicals from smoking doesn’t make any sense!

Alternatively you could just quit smoking and eat a reasonable diet. Plus when you quit it would be worth taking 1000 mg of Vitamin C a day, a multi vitamin and 4 grams of fish oils per day for at least 3 months as part of your recovery.

But first you need to quit, and by far the best option is advanced quit smoking hypnosis. It’s safe, reliable, gentle and highly effective. Everyone who wants to be hypnotised, can be if they are just willing to participate.

So what’s it going to be, a stomach rattling full supplements or being a non-smoker.

Quit Smoking With Herbal Anti Nicotine Supplements

Even though smoking is responsible for serious disease such as mouth and lung cancer, many people still smoke on a regular basis because of their addiction to nicotine. That’s why even though many people want to give up nicotine, their intense carvings as well as the withdrawal symptoms makes it very hard. Most of the time, they go back to their old habit and this is harmful to their health.

However, herbal anti nicotine supplements are a safe option that can help you overcome this habit without any side effects. Continue reading to find out how these capsules work.

The Huge Mistake People Make When They Try To Quit Smoking

If you’re reading this article, then it’s because you’re looking for a way to quit smoking for good.

Why are you looking for a way? Probably because you’ve tried to quit smoking several times and failed. And that’s because quitting smoking is difficult. It’s a habit that’s hard to break.

So often people think that in order to give up cigarettes, all they have to do is pick a day to stop smoking and that’s it. They believe that in some magical way, they’ll wake up on that day and their craving for cigarettes will be gone, or at least diminished enough so that they won’t be desperate for a cigarette any more.

Usually the day they pick is January 1st for their New Year resolution.

But as usual, it doesn’t work.

So what goes wrong? Why can’t smokers stop smoking?

It’s because of the huge mistake they all make.

And that mistake is thinking that smoking is an addiction and all they have to do is stop smoking and their addiction will go away.

But smoking ISN’T an addiction.

It’s a habit.

You see when junkies try to quit, their bodies are so addicted to the drugs they’ve been taking, that they struggle to live without them.

This is why, as soon as they stop taking drugs their bodies react by becoming cold and covered in goose bumps (otherwise known as turkey flesh) which is where the saying “going cold turkey” comes from.

They also progress (or worsen) to having leg spasm, which is also where the saying “kicking the habit” comes from.

Junkies go through a lot of physical and psychological trauma when they quit drugs.

But when smokers quit, all that happens is they want another cigarette and they don’t suffer from adverse effects because their bodies aren’t addicted to nicotine, which is why nicotine patches or nicotine gum don’t work, because your body isn’t craving nicotine. It’s your mind that’s craving the habit of actually smoking a cigarette.

You don’t want to ingest nicotine. You just want to light up a cigarette, taste it, and feel the smoke going down into your lungs and back up again.

THAT’S what you miss. Let’s face it, if nicotine was removed from cigarettes and they still tasted the same, you’d still want to smoke wouldn’t you?

So what can you do?

How can you stop wanting to smoke?

The answer is simple.

You need to stop smoking the same way you started. Gradually.

You didn’t begin as a pack-a-day smoking and you don’t have to stop so abruptly either.

Instead you need to unravel your smoking habit one day and one week at a time, until you wake up one morning and the craving to smoke is gone. Not only is it gone, but you’re glad it’s gone.

You’ve created a brand new non-smoking lifestyle.
