More Than 60 Percent Who Try a Cigarette Become Daily Smokers

A recent study outlined the dangers of nicotine addiction in stark terms. According to CNN, more than 60 percent of people who try a cigarette become daily smokers. This shocking statistic can serve as a cautionary tale to anyone tempted to light up, but what about anyone who is currently a smoker?

Smoking has been a health scourge for generations and has killed millions worldwide. It is the leading cause of preventable death, accounting for 1 out of every 5 deaths in the U.S. Smoking can damage your DNA for decades but this is no reason to postpone quitting. 

I believe the "secret" to quitting smoking is to get healthy first, which will make quitting much easier. Exercising is part and parcel of this plan, as research shows people who engage in regular strength training double their success rate at quitting smoking compared to those who don't exercise. 

Healthy eating is another crucial aspect that can't be ignored. I recommend reading through my comprehensive free nutrition plan. It provides an actionable framework for adopting healthy eating habits. Two of the primary tenets are to never eat processed food and to prepare your own nourishing whole foods. 

Developing a healthy emotional outlet can also aid your smoking cessation plan. I also recommend the empowering practices of the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). It can help clear out emotional blockages from your system (some of which you might not even realize are there), thus restoring your mind and body's balance and helping you break the addiction and avoid cravings.
