Energy From Oxygen

Oxygen is needed by every cell in your body in order to live. If you can’t breathe, then you certainly can’t get the physical activity your body needs to be healthy. Building lung capacity is important to everyone. Healthy lungs work to bring in oxygen that the body needs to create energy.  Regular exercise requires the body to burn energy. Your lung tissue has to work harder to get more oxygen into the body and blood stream. When the lungs work harder, such as from exercise, the volume of air (air capacity) that your lungs can hold, grows stronger.

Many smokers are motivated to quit because they see the hypocrisy of having a cigarette when leaving the gym or after a workout. It’s amazing how getting your heart pumping makes you feel so good. If a person is addicted to nicotine then there is an inner battle going on. The “addiction,” which wants to light up, and the logical part of the brain that is enjoying the gratifying effects of exercise. This is why it’s common that exercising can trigger the desire to quit smoking for good.

It’s rewarding to observe the body becoming more capable with each workout. Just as the muscles repair and become more powerful, so do the lungs regenerate once cigarettes are gone.

Lungs Recouperate After No More Smoking:

WITHIN DAYS of the last cigarette, the upper airways of the lungs begin to regrow.

WITHIN WEEKS it’s noticeable how much better the lungs are functioning. This helps you to bring in
more oxygen for greater stamina and strength.

WITHIN MONTHS lung capacity rises by 30 percent.  Which means your workouts will yield better results.

WITHIN SIX MONTHS the tiny hairs in the upper airways have re-grown to the state of a non-smoker and
bronchial tissue is beginning to heal. This is important, so the lungs have a defense against toxins.

WITHIN YEARS, or as early as 9-12 months, according to the American Lung Association, persistent coughing, sinus infections, or other respiratory distresses associated with smoking, decline. Which means you feel better and have more time to enjoy life!
