A Smart Guy


     I was on my way to the Kotel yesterday afternoon when this yeshiva student stopped me. He said, “Some time ago you saw me smoking on the street and you gave me a sheet of paper with some reasons why it was not good. I pinned the note on my wall, and I kept on smoking. From time to time I would look at it, but I kept on smoking. Then, a couple of months ago, I quit. I haven’t smoked in over two months!”


    “Wow! You made my day. You are a smart guy,” I told him.


    He answered, “Yes, I know!”


    Here is the list that I gave him. Maybe you know someone who smokes and is smart enough to pin them up on his wall?


Here is what happens when you quit smoking


In 20 minutes, your blood pressure and pulse rate will drop back down to normal.

In 8 hours the carbon monoxide (a toxic gas) levels in your blood stream will drop by half, and oxygen levels will return to normal.

In 48 hours your chance of having a heart attack will have decreased. All nicotine will have left your body. Your sense of taste and smell will return to a normal level.

In 72 hours your bronchial tubes will relax, and your energy levels will increase.

In 2 weeks your circulation will increase, and it will continue to improve for the next 10 weeks.

In 3 to 9 months coughs, wheezing and breathing problems will dissipate as your lung capacity improves by 10%.

In 1 year your risk of having a heart attack will have dropped by half.


    And if you want to add a few of my thoughts about quitting:


    You will immediately stop stinking up the place, and harming other people with your toxic, secondhand smoke.

    You will immediately stop being a sucker paying the tobacco company your hard to come by money to addict yourself to their poison.

    You will immediately begin to regain your self-respect.
