Reduce Your Pain
Research shows that smokers experience twice as much pain as do non-smokers. One study demonstrated that more than half of all patients with chronic back pain were smokers and 57 percent of those patients needed to smoke more when they were experiencing pain. In addition, people who smoke are usually more reliant on pain medication than non-smokers. They are also less able to tolerate their pain than non-smokers.
Since the Surgeon General’s Report in 1964, over 30 million Americans have quit smoking. The overwhelming majority of them did it on their own. If you want to quit smoking, the odds are in your favour. No matter why you smoke – because you are “hooked,” smoke for “the pleasure of smoking,” smoke when you are nervous or under pressure, or because you are psychologically addicted to smoking – quitting smoking will provide two immediate and long-lasting benefits. First, you will feel more energetic within days. Second, you will find that you experience less pain than you did when smoking.
Quitting smoking may be the single best thing you do to improve your health and reduce your pain.
