Is quitting smoking worth it?

Do you sometimes play that little game with yourself before making an important decision that could change your life? The one that consists in making two columns on a sheet of paper to weigh the pros and cons of this decision? The goal is to analyze whether or not it will have a positive impact on your daily life. The rule is simple: if there are more arguments in the "Positive Impact" column, this decision can benefit your life, and you should jump into the deep end. If not, jumping in may not be such a good idea. This game can be made for many decisions, like quitting smoking, for example!

That's why we suggest today: what if we played this little game together about cigarettes? Let's analyze hand in hand the "pros" and "cons" of the decision to quit smoking! This will make it easy for you to decide which to make in the end!

Positive impact column:

The money back in:

This factor is undoubtedly one of the first sources of motivation for those who want to quit smoking.

It is essential to know that a smoker who consumes a pack of cigarettes per day at 10.40€ expends an average of 312€ per month or 3,744€ per year.

Saving this money can therefore be a decisive factor in making this decision!

The revival of health:

The many benefits of quitting smoking for the body are well known: better skin quality, better taste and smell, more robust immune system, healthier teeth...

But the first thing that comes to mind is the decreased risk of developing cancer. Indeed, lung cancer remains one of the leading causes of death in Europe.

So, having in its "Positive Impact" column an argument entitled "decision that considerably increases life expectancy", can tip the balance, right?

The energy boost:

The fatigue that smokers feel often goes hand in hand with the fact that the body works to eliminate all the tobacco residue.

That's why some smokers feel an energy boost in the first few days of quitting.

What better positive thing to add to our column?

After that, getting back into sports will be a breeze!

And here's to the Olympics!

The revival of freedom:

The term addiction is often closely linked to a significant loss of freedom.
