X Smoking – The Best Way to Quit Smoking
Tobacco and nicotine are just as addictive as alcohol or cocaine or the like. Scientifically explained, when you light up a cigarette nicotine is rapidly absorbed into your bloodstream. Within 10 seconds of entering the body, the nicotine reaches your brain and triggers the release of adrenaline, creating a wave of pleasure and energy.
However, the buzz fades quickly and leaves the smoker – depending on the individual – feeling a bit tired or down. Most significantly, however, it leaves you wanting the buzz again. As a result, it will make you take out another cigarette, and the next one, and so on. In the end, this leads to a vicious cycle: nicotine addiction.
In the US, nearly 18 of every 100 adults (aged 18 and above), or roughly 42.1 million people, smoke cigarettes. They seem to overlook the fact that smoking compromises the body’s immune system, which makes smokers more likely to have respiratory infections or face autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis. But these are just a few of the possible effects of being addicted to cigarettes.
What’s more alarming is that smoking is the no. 1 cause of preventable disease and death in the US, accounting for more than 480,000 deaths every single year. That means one in every five people in the US ends up six feet under because of smoking.
Stop being part of the above statistic and live a nicotine-free life! Breaking the addiction is harder for some than for others, but CAN BE DONE!
To help you quit smoking, we created a new app, X Smoking. It breaks the addiction in a comfortable manner. We know that quitting smoking isn’t easy, but with some help from you and X Smoking, there is a chance to step out of this vicious cycle.
X Smoking works by setting up a schedule and asking a few questions about smoking habits. In the end, it will create a new smoking schedule that works gently to break the habit.
So, how does it work? First, there is the schedule: The best way to quit smoking is to stop from one minute to the next, but we are aware that this is the hardest thing ever. So we’ve found another and more convenient way to successfully achieve the same goal: The X Smoking schedule will evenly separate the number of cigarettes you smoke per day and launch a timer that counts the time between them.
However, for the X Smoking’s magic to work, we need your help: Although the temptation for an early smoke remains, it’s important to light up the cigarette only when the X Smoking rings. And since it’s hard to resist temptation, X Smoking will support the user with achievement badges and motivational tips during your trip to freedom.
