A lot of men have trouble with their breathing… after they’ve just run up a few flights of stairs. Since most men don’t smoke, they can breathe reasonably well most of the time, unless they exert themselves heavily. However, a man who smokes can develop a whole lot of different complications that impact his daily life. Among these are COPD (or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and lung cancer. These are more than just little annoyances – they can kill you with frightening ease. However, avoiding both smoking and smoky environments is a good start toward preventing these problems from occurring in the first place. But of course, you might already smoke.
If you already smoke, all hope is far from lost. You just need to quit that ridiculous, expensive habit. It’s a lot like hiring a hit man to shoot you – and you can find much better, healthier ways to have fun, with or without having to pay for them. As well, a lot of the ways you can enjoy your time don’t even involve spending a penny. Obviously, finding someone to spend quality time with is enjoyable and low cost, as is a good workout. You could even try taking up a hobby that challenges your mind, such as chess or poker.
But smoking can be a dastardly habit to kick. So many men have tried and failed, despite their best intentions. Obviously, you are going to want to limit your contact with people who smoke, just as an alcoholic limits (if he doesn’t entirely cut off) his contact with the drinkers from his old life. You can still like the people – you just can’t hang around them while they practice that nasty habit of theirs. Another way to help you break the habit is with electronic cigarette starter kits. They can give you the nicotine, without all the tar.
