Dangers of Secondhand Smoke

“Secondhand smoke is a mixture of two forms of smoke that come from burning tobacco: side-stream smoke (the smoke from the lighted end of a cigarette) and mainstream smoke (the smoke inhaled and exhaled by a smoker). Side-stream smoke is more toxic than mainstream smoke, as it has much higher concentrations of cancer-causing substances. There is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke.” — Tobacco Stops with Me.com

Exposure to secondhand smoke continues to be a serious health problem. In fact, non-smokers exposed to secondhand smoke absorb the same harmful chemicals as smokers. Studies show that even low levels of secondhand smoke exposure can be harmful causing numerous health problems including increasing your risk for lung disease, heart disease, heart attacks and strokes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, including emphysema and chronic bronchitis), and many life-threatening cancers.

Secondhand smoke effects everyone and everything around you — children, pregnant women, people with breathing issues, your family, your friends, your co-workers. If you’re a smoker, isn’t it time to let it go? It’s truly never too late.

Don’t doubt yourself – quit in 2020 – you CAN do it!

“Life’s vibrant hues are way too beautiful and precious to be distorted by the smoke of cigarettes.” – Anonymous

You know the health risks of smoking but that hasn’t stopped you. In fact, you’ve been thinking and even talking about quitting for years. Well don’t feel guilty. You’re definitely not alone. Nicotine is powerful stuff. Many people try to quit smoking several times before they kick the habit for good.

At Calgary Laserworks we use a low level laser (cold laser) instead of needles to target key energy points on the body. These points are found around the ears, nose, hand and wrist, and when stimulated endorphins – the body’s natural feel-good hormones – are released. This endorphin release has a calming, relaxing effect on the body which helps to reduce or eliminate nicotine cravings and the desire for cigarettes, as well as withdrawal symptoms.

In addition to stimulating an endorphin release, the laser stimulates the body’s natural ability to detoxify the nicotine, helping you through the nicotine withdrawal more quickly.

Low level laser treatments are a safe, non-invasive, pain-free, drug-free and highly effective solution that will help you quit smoking for good.
