Quitting smoking with hypnosis is one of the single most beneficial changes you can make to increase your life expectancy.
Researchers have discovered that if you stop smoking before you turn 50 your risk of dying is practically reduced to that of a nonsmoker.
Even giving up smoking as late 60 years of age can reduce your chance of dying by almost 40 percent, compared to other people who continue smoking.
Stopping smoking at any age will not increase your life expectancy, but the benefits begin straight away. It is never too late to stop smoking to reap the rewards for your health.
Choosing to stop smoking can make a big difference not just to your health, but to your lifestyle as well, all of which will increase your life expectancy. Studies also show that if you stop smoking in middle age, before the onset of cancer or other serious smoking related disease; you evade most of the increased risk of death due to smoking.
Although the benefits of stopping smoking decreases the risk of serious diseases which can shorten life expectancy, the sooner you stop smoking, the greater the decrease in risk. Medical research has proven that life expectancy of smokers was shortened by at least ten years when compared to nonsmokers. The same research shows that adults who quit smoking before the age of 40 regain nearly all of those lost ten years. In addition, smokers who stopped smoking between 45 and 54 years of age gained back six years of life, while smokers who stopped between the ages of 55 and 64 regained four years of life. Smoking cessation has been proven to reduce morbidity and increase life expectancy.
Life expectancy is increased with smoking cessation because the risk of smoking related diseases drops significantly. The risk of getting cancer, heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and peripheral vascular disease decreases when you quit smoking with hypnosis. The risk of other non-life threatening illnesses can be reduced as well. This includes, but is not limited to: fertility problems, eye problems, impotence, macular degeneration, gum disease, tooth decay, and osteoporosis.
A study completed by the Oxford University, the British Heart Foundation, and the Imperial Cancer Research Fund, demonstrated that if smokers quit smoking before they reach the age of 35 then the reduction in tobacco related cancer risk is greater than 90 percent. In addition, the risk of lung cancer in patients who used to smoke declines progressively with each year of smoking abstinence. However, the risk is still higher compared to subjects who have never smoked. Numerous studies have proven beyond doubt that stopping smoking will increase your life expectancy even more significantly if done before the age of 35. All smokers will benefit at any age, but the earlier you stop smoking, the better. The time to quit is now.
Smoking cessation benefits are well documented and prove it is worth the effort and sacrifice. Not only will you be increasing your own life expectancy, but others around you will benefit as well, due to their reduced exposure to secondhand smoke.
