When the word addiction is ever mentioned, everybody’s initial thought is an image of someone who smokes. Although addictions can vary in categories, smoking is the most common one. On average, smoking kills around 7 million people every single year according to WHO and it is estimated that around 22.5 percent of all adults are avid day-to-day smokers worldwide.

With this being said, there are thousands of reasons why one should quit smoking as soon as possible but there are millions who cannot abandon this bad habit. Each cigarette can contain up to 4000 chemicals, majority of which are harmful to your health. There are some arguments in favor of smoking; but if someone’s life is literally at risk, no argument is good enough.

This article will focus on a remedy that helps clean your lungs after you stop smoking. Your body naturally starts repairing itself once you quit but there are natural remedies which can help enhance the process faster and make it more efficient, but before that, let’s understand what smoking can actually do to the human body.

Smoking-related diseases

Smoking, even in small quantities, can increase your chances of developing some sort of cancer, especially lung cancer, by 25%. It also increases the chances of getting a stroke by two times, where blood flow is reduced to the brain resulting in dead brain cells.

Ask any smoker, or just make them run for a while and the differences between a normal person and a smoker will be evident. Smokers tend to lose their ability to breathe properly and that causes severe asthma attacks and in the worst case scenario, lung cancer.

As far as cancer goes, it’s not only lung cancer that develops due to smoking. In fact, cancer can develop in a persons bladder, blood, stomach, pancreas, kidneys, liver, cervix and multiple other locations within the body.

Other effects of smoking can include teeth decay as the tar effects the enamel on your teeth. It also increases the chances of getting diabetes by almost 40%, so if you belong from a line of diabetics then smoking can seriously hurt you. Cigarettes can also affect fertility in men by drastically reducing their sperm count.

It’s never too late though. Your body naturally starts the repairing as soon as you quit. Eventually, your risk of heart disease decreases and after 2 to 3 years of quitting, your chances of getting a stroke are the same as someone who has never smoked.
