Become a Millionaire - Stop Smoking
A title in a recent Birmingham News article was quite eye-catching. The title was “Who wants to be a millionaire? Give up smoking and Prosper”
It was written by a financial counselor who wrote a very clear article on the financial gain to be found by stopping smoking as a Spring Project in 2013. He states a 23 year old who gives up a pack a day habit and invests in equities with the funds that would have been used to buy cigarettes would have 1.2 million dollars at age 65. This is if the cost of cigarettes does not go up over this period of time. We know from the past that they are going to go up; therefore, the investment return would be more than 1.2 million dollars.
This investment counselor has done much research and he goes on to state that this is a good financial investment, but he researched the health statistics and found that those who have a smoking habit and continue with it die, on average, 10 to 19 years sooner than those who don’t smoke or stop smoking. Life insurance analysts know this also. A one million dollar policy for a 30 year old with a twenty year term WHO SMOKES costs $1500 annually as compared to a 30 year old non-smoker. The non-smoker will pay $435 a year for the same policy. Reason: the smoker will have a higher possibility of dying from smoking related health issues.
With the recent statistics showing that secondary smoke is more harmful than the smoke inhaled by a smoker, work environments are having pressure put on them to stop putting others at risk. Also, in home environments, secondary smoke and tertiary smoke for children are being shown to cause hazards to those around the smoker. All of this adds up to show that it is a good financial and health choice to stop smoking and to do it as soon as possible.
Drugs to Stop Smoking can be dangerous
That research was done by a Birmingham financial adviser with a good reputation and a weekly contributor to the Sunday addition of the Birmingham News. Right on the heels of that article , was a contribution to the Birmingham News by a national reporter on the drug Chantix and the renewed interest in the FDA scrutinizing this drug. A cry is starting for the FDA to get more involved with warnings since a recent study showed that the risk of hospitalizations for heart problems increased by 72 per cent after taking this drug. The study was a heavily controlled study done by Johns Hopkins University.
The article states that revenue from the use of Chantix declined significantly in 2009 after the FDA warned that the medicine may increase suicides and erratic behavior. It was found that Chantix affects dopamine, a chemical in the brain involved in controlling mood and behavior. After this FDA study presented its warnings, Chantix went from $883 million revenue in 2007 to $755 million in 2009. Now, this completed study shows heart complications for people without a previous history are also a risk.
The particular study related to heart complications showed that those with no history of heart problems had a significant risk after taking the drug. The article quotes the study as saying the risk of Chantix complication was doubled for patients with no history of heart disease.
Immediately after reading that article, rather than muting a TV commercial on that drug, I listened to it. At the end of the commercial was a very scary trailer of all the possible side effects, including the possibility of death by suicide.
Studies show Smoking is Deadly
For those who have been thinking about quitting smoking and are currently reading this article, it may be an event of Divine Grace that you are reading this. Stopping smoking will be one of the best choices of a lifetime. I recently attended a funeral of a sixty year old with lots of reasons to live. He had a good job, good insurance which paid for his very expensive medical treatment for lung cancer, and an enjoyable hobby in which he had invested lots of his earned income. He had no reason at all to want to leave this world. He left , however, and suffered phenomenally before his death from lung cancer which was secondary to a smoking habit.
Another man, has just been diagnosed with a fast moving lung cancer. He had reached the point in his life to where he would have had not one financial worry. He retired after 45 years at a job with a very good pension. Travel, fun, rest and enjoyment were on his future agenda. He apparently knows that his future now involves needing a caregiver rather than a travel agent.
Both of these people had some things in common: both looked to the future with optimism only to receive a major health diagnosis secondary to a smoking habit. One is dead and the other has a grave future prognosis from this fast moving lung cancer. Both were not known to me until I encountered them through acquaintances of mine. I do not know if either had tried to stop smoking earlier in life and did not ask due to the horrible sadness those around them are currently feeling.
Hypnosis to Stop Smoking has no side effects
One of the very best ways to stop smoking is with hypnosis. There are no side effects except beneficial ones. You can book a private session of hypnosis for stopping the smoking habit now. You can come to our offices for private hypnosis sessions to Stop Smoking permanenetly with no side effects call us at 205 322-PATH that's 205 322-7284. Or you can order the stop smoking hypnosis sessions on CDs to work with yourself at home. STOP SMOKING CDs… Take action to insure your financial and health future now. This action will also be beneficial to those around you, co-workers, friends, and family.
If you are a Smoker or Dipper, this is a good time to utilize the best tool out there to help you stop. We got used to hearing about the dangers of smoking and of secondary smoke. Now, it has been found that one of the deadliest processes in the smoking habit is third-hand, or tertiary smoke. This is the film of tar, toxins, and nicotine that children, pets, and other home members experience in the vehicles and homes of smokers. Children crawl around on carpets and floors with this film. Those exposed to this toxic environment are found to be in extreme danger of developing illness including, but not limited to, cancer.
Children are also being exposed to the truth through the media where most of the baby boomers and some of the Generation X group were programmed to think smoking was cool and safe. These children are motivating parents and grandparents to take action and stop smoking. Stop Smoking through PATH hypnosis involves a releasing of causes along with reprogramming to change desire and resultant lifestyle. The best way is in private sessions to stop smoking , which is two sessions of hypnosis.

PATH also has a very effective in-home CD program of stop smoking.
This is the very best time to make the commitment which will lead to health and well-being. The commitment is to self but others around you will be positively affected by this commitment.
Meditation & Rest to Restore & Heal
Spring is an excellent time to take inventory of the past year and get off to a new start. I read a very good article about this written by Martha Beck. She suggested that when making some decisions about changing habits or moving forward with life, to take time to rest. Her article pointed out that sometimes continuing to struggle with situations or habits can lead to more indecision. She used the true analogy of how lions who are totally exhausted from a hunt, literally use deep rest as a method of regaining their footing. Her statement was to move into the valley of the ebb and take time to rest. Earlier in this writing, I mentioned Divine Grace. While you are taking a deep rest, you might ponder the timing or synchronicity of thinking of stopping a smoking habit and finding these words with the research good people have done on the financial aspects of smoking, the health aspects of smoking; those who felt they needed drugs to assist them in stopping smoking (with possible serious side effects as another risk), and then for you to find a hypnosis site. As I stated earlier, Divine Grace is being offered to you to help with the proper decision. Divine Grace is always soft and gentle and allows freewill choice.
Smoker stops again with Hypnosis
I will always remember a client from Kingwood, Texas. She, like the men I wrote about before, had every reason to want to live. She had retired and was living in the golf course subdivision where we lived. We lived at hole number one and she lived right at the last hole. She had stopped smoking successfully before, but had visited her daughter in California who talked her into smoking while on a visit there. This tempting of herself lead to several more years of smoking.
When she came to me she had just gotten a diagnosis of lung cancer. She stopped again with hypnosis. I will always remember her words, “Why, why didn’t I refuse to start up this dangerous habit again?” I had no real verbal response for her, but my inner mind was thinking the same thing.
Amazing Grace will set you Free
I have added a moving example of a child singing a version of Amazing Grace. He added “my chains are gone; I’ve been set free , My GOD, My SAVIOR has recued me”. He is standing in a labyrinth and the fact that he learned the words phonetically makes it even more moving.
He is from Brazil and sings this moving version from a labyrinth by memorizing the English words phonetically. His pronunciation of some words incorrectly gives innocent meaning to his Divine message and shows that the music itself goes directly to the subconscious mind….. Listen from this link Amazing Grace
Handwriting analysis reveals personality
In a muscular dystrophy ad, I saw a very unique signature that showed distinctly a highly creative person with unique personal characteristics.
I looked to find the signature on the computer to make it easier to transfer into this write-up, and saw that over the years, her protection of her music had become stronger than when she started out. This was probably because of things that were learned along the way from previous circumstances.
The large W looks like a broken heart when viewed upside down. When something s looped in a large manner to the left, it is usually mother or female challenges. Her W over the years became larger and more looped to the left. The part that is incongruous is that the nonna is very small. This shows she can certainly deal with detail to the point that she has the detail tenacity of an accountant or an attorney.
She is certainly someone who would cross every t and dot every i in a business situation. The straight-down large loop of her y shows a full creative life on the subconscious level and an active desire for pleasure and joy. The last a is a circular loop protecting her music. This loop links with the broken heart. Her signature shows a very creative and positive person who is clear in her presentation of self.
Here’s hoping you stop your smoking habit if you are thinking of doing so. And, here’s hoping you live a Wonder-filled Life!
