Smoking and high blood pressure
Contrary to rumors, there is no definite established link between smoking and high blood pressure. What I mean by that is that smoking tobacco is not a main causal factor of high blood pressure.
I know of one chain smoker that whose only concern is that their blood pressure is too low.
However, if you suffer from hypertension then smoking tobacco can make it worse without a doubt. Nicotine has the effect of restricting arteries which of course raises the pressure.
So, although smoking alone won’t cause high blood pressure initially, there is a link between smoking and high blood pressure, if you already have it.
The bottom line is this: If you are prone to high blood pressure and you smoke then quitting smoking is definitely a good step to take to get your health back in shape. It will help lower your blood pressure.
Smoking and high blood pressure: how to reduce both
But stopping smoking isn’t easy. I should know, I smoked for more years than I care to count – starting at the age of 14. That’s why I put together the Preach Free Guide to Smoking and Quitting.
For those of you who love smoking but find it hard to imagine life without your long-time companion, a cigarette, there for you when you need it, the Preach-Free Guide is for you.
Why Preach-Free? Well let’s put it this way – if knowing that smoking was bad for your long-term health made you stop smoking, there wouldn’t be many smokers left on the planet. Preaching, finger-wagging, warnings of ill health and premature death simply don’t work for the majority of us committed smokers.
Or like my friend used say after watching an anti-smoking message on TV – “Anyone can quit smoking. You gotta be brave to face lung cancer everyday”.
OK, that was only a dark joke – but it shows the degree of mental gymnastics we can accomplish to justify continuation of smoking. Whichever way you look at it, smoking and high blood pressure are not a good combination, but preaching the anti-smoking message simply doesn’t work on committed smokers.
The preach-free guide is a humorous look at the habit. Smokers will enjoy reading the text and comics. When they are ready to stub out for the last time they’ll know how to do it and be successful – as easy as “jumping over a large puddle” as the guide will show.
I’m currently giving away the Preach Free Guide to Smoking and Quitting as a free bonus with my guide to lowering blood pressure naturally.
