Better Sex

Quit Smoking Now To Reduce Your Stress, Explode Your Energy Levels And Increase Your Sexual Performance And Pleasure!

The benefits of quitting smoking are plentiful. Here are just some of the fantastic health benefits you will experience when you stop smoking:

Your Sex Life Will Be Better

Stopping smoking improves the body’s blood flow, so improves sensitivity. Men who stop smoking may get better erections and women may find their orgasms improve and they become aroused more easily.

It’s also been found that non-smokers are three times more appealing to the opposite sex than smokers (one of the advantages, perhaps, of smelling fresh).

“Smoking has a direct, negative effect on the sexuality of a man on every level,” says Panayiotis M. Zavos, PhD, director of the Andrology Institute of America and professor of reproductive physiology and andrology at the University of Kentucky .

From their work with couples being treated for infertility, Zavos and his fellow researchers found that smoking significantly diminished a man’s sexual desire and satisfaction – even for young men in their 20s and 30s.

The smokers reported having sex less than six times per month, whereas the non-smoking men were having sex nearly twice as often. “In current research, we are trying to identify how and why tobacco use negatively impacts men’s sexual performance. Sexual performance is more than just erectile function; it involves many of the systems of the body,” says Zavos. “But when a man’s ability to have sex decreases, his appetite for sex will generally follow.

Zavos found that when diminished desire is combined with impaired performance, overall satisfaction is likely to suffer. When asked to rate their satisfaction with the sex they were having on a scale of 1 to 10, non-smoking  couples averaged 8.7, while  couples with male smokers fared far worse with an average of only 5.2. “There’s no doubt in my mind,” says Zavos, “that nearly any man’s sexual satisfaction and frequency of having sex would increase if he stopped smoking.”

Other experts agree that smoking can impair sexual performance. “Smoking causes damage to smooth muscle inside the penis that interferes with erectile functioning,” says urologist Dr. Richard Milsten,  co-author of The Sexual Male. “So if men can’t perform as well, it would make sense that their libidos would suffer.”  However, Milsten cautions, “There are so many factors in sexuality. Smoking is just one. Still, I don’t think it’s outlandish to say that refraining from smoking will benefit your sex life.”

You Will Be More Relaxed

A lot of smokers tell me that smoking relaxes them. Now if you know anything about nicotine, you know, it’s impossible to actually relax when you smoke, because nicotine is actually a stimulant.

When you inhale nicotine it goes into your bloodstream and travels all through your body – including your heart. Your heart sees nicotine as a poison and your heart rate increases by about 12 beats per minute trying to get rid of the poison. This is why even when you haven’t smoked a cigarette in a while you may notice heart palpitations or feel light-headedness or dizziness. This is because nicotine is a stimulant causing your heart and your body to react and try to get rid of it. Your stomach produces extra stomach acid every time you smoke cigarettes – about ½ a cup of extra acid for every 2 packs of cigarettes.

You already have a powerful stimulant like nicotine in your body, and if you add additional stimulants like caffeine or tea or coffee, you then have at least three extremely powerful stimulants causing the body to be hyper-excited. Is that person relaxed? Not even close. In fact, your body is working overtime trying to get rid of all the poisons and toxins, you just put into it. So it is absolutely impossible to smoke and physiologically relax.

Any feeling of relaxation is just an illusion.

You Will Achieve Improved fertility

Non-smokers find it easier to get pregnant. Quitting smoking improves the lining of the womb and can make men’s sperm more potent. Becoming a non-smoker increases the possibility of conceiving through IVF and reduces the likelihood of having a miscarriage. Most important of all, it improves the chances of giving birth to a healthy baby.

You Will Have Younger Looking Skin

Stopping smoking has been found to slow facial ageing and delay the appearance of wrinkles. The skin of a non- smoker gets more nutrients, including oxygen, and can reverse the sallow, lined complexion that smokers often have.

You Will Have Whiter teeth

Giving up tobacco stops your teeth from becoming stained and means you’ll have fresher breath.  Ex- smokers are also much less likely than smokers to suffer from gum disease and lose their teeth prematurely.

Your Breathing Will Improve

People breathe more easily and cough less when they give up smoking because their lung capacity improves by up to 10% within nine months. In your 20s and 30s, the effect of smoking on your lung capacity may not be noticeable until you go for a run, but lung capacity naturally diminishes with age. In later years, having access to maximum lung capacity can make all the difference between having an active, healthy old age and wheezing when you go for a walk or climb stairs.

You Will Live a Longer Life

It’s common knowledge that half of all long-term smokers die early (half of them by middle age) from smoking- related diseases including heart disease, lung cancer and chronic bronchitis. Men who quit smoking by age 30 add 10 years to their life. People who kick the habit at 60 add three years to their life. In other words, it’s never too late to benefit from stopping. Quitting not only adds years to your life, it greatly improves your chances of living a disease-free, mobile, happier old age.

You Will Decrease Your Stress Levels

Scientific studies show that people’s stress levels are lower after they stop smoking. Nicotine addiction makes smokers stressed from the ‘withdrawal’ between cigarettes; the pleasant feeling of satisfying that craving is only temporary and is not a real cure for stress. In addition, the improved levels of oxygen going through the body means ex- smokers can concentrate better and experience increased mental wellbeing.

Your Senses Will Improve

Kicking the smoking habit gives your senses of smell and taste a boost as the body recovers from being dulled by the hundreds of toxic chemicals in cigarettes.

You Will Have More energy

Within 2 to 12 weeks of stopping smoking, your circulation improves, making all physical activities, including walking and running, much easier for you. The boost to your immune system from quitting will make it easier for you to fight off colds and flu. And the increase in oxygen in your body will make you feel less fatigued and less likely to suffer from headaches.
