We have all heard the usual spiel about the health benefits of quitting smoking: reduced risk of lung cancer, better teeth, no secondhand smoke and so on. But there are also some surprising side effects that come with switching to vapes and e-cigs that you might not know about.
1. Improved sex life
Quitting smoking allows you to breathe more easily and can increase your blood circulation, which in turn makes for a much better time in the bedroom. Men that quit smoking find it easier to get an erection and sustain it for longer, while women report becoming aroused more easily and having better orgasms. Plus, research has shown that non-smokers are 3 times more attractive to prospective partners than those that smoke.
2. Clear skin
Smoking has a significant effect on your skin. As soon as you stop, you’ll start to notice that your skin is getting more nutrients that will delay wrinkles and slow premature facial ageing. The chances of developing skin cancer are also vastly reduced, while conditions like psoriasis and acne are much less likely to be a problem.
3. Reduced risk of Alzheimer’s
Research has shown that people who smoke are at an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. The rate of mental decline is up to five times faster in smokers than non-smokers, owing to the clotting and artery damage typical of those that use cigarettes.
4. Enhanced taste and smell
People who quit smoking are often surprised at how quickly their senses of taste and smell improve. This is because the toxic chemicals in cigarettes tend to dull these senses and change the taste of food. When you remove these substances from your body, you will find that your food tastes better and you can smell more easily.
5. Clear voice
A raspy or hoarse voice can plague people who smoke, indicating vocal cord damage, dryness or inflammation. These changes can be reversible, however, and can lead to a drastic change in your voice once you quit smoking.
