My Health

I always put the health of my kids first, and do whatever I can to make sure that they lead a healthy lifestyle. However, while paying a lot of attention to their wellbeing, I often forgot about looking after myself. Until recently, I ate nothing but junk food; did no exercise and smoked regularly, and after a meeting with a doctor, I realised that my lifestyle was responsible for me being out of shape. While I’ve pledged to eat healthily and start working out, I know quitting smoking is going to be tough. However, there are several ways in which I, and you, can kick the habit:

  • Use things like electronic cigarettes, nicotine patches and nicotine gums. If you want to quit, but still crave the nicotine which helped to make it so addictive, you could use any of those aids to help wean you off cigarettes for good.
  • Think about the impact that smoking could have on your health. Smoking is known to cause breathing problems, stained teeth, coughing fits and, in extreme cases, diseases such as lung cancer. If that doesn’t persuade you to give up, what else will?
  • Try and find something else to do instead of smoking. Smoking is often seen by many who do it as a hobby. However, if you find something else to help keep you from being bored, that could help take your mind off those cravings.
  • Try to be a good role model to your kids. By leading a healthy lifestyle, you’re setting a good example to your kids that they will surely follow. It’s also worth thinking about the damage that smoking could do to your kids, as if they inhale second-hand smoke, they could pick up similar illnesses and diseases to the ones you may have.

    It’s a nice first step to use electronic cigarettes to overcome the habit of smoking as these are nicotine free.

  2. I believe in the saying that you should practice what your preach. I do hope you’ll take good care of your health too. 🙂

    aw! smoking is the dreaded talk here in our household. the husband seemed too stubborn as to kick his habit. i’ve tried getting him into gums, candies, and reiterating of smoking’s potential harm on his health and ours as well…he’s too in love with his habit…i’m at a dead end 🙂

  4. It’s admirable that you’ve started to quit smoking. I know it can be very addictive. My dad is a chronic smoker! Luckily, my siblings and I didn’t get into the habit. Early on, we realized how bad smoking can be because we had a book on the effects of smoking to our health. We tried to make our dad quit but habits like smoking die hard.

  5. True, you have to be worth-emulating for your kids 🙂
