Time to quit.

Posted by Naomi Rosenthal on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 Under: Life Insurance

On 10th October 2006 I stopped smoking.

I owe my success of having successfully stopped and feeling like I'll never need to smoke again, to a number of things:

  • Allan Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking
  • A positive mental attitude
  • A new non-smoking man in my life, which led me to the belief that the relationship wouldn't work at all if I continued to smoke. (We're still together!)
  • Feeling that if I didn't stop soon my health would continue to deteriorate.

Smoking is one of the leading preventable causes of death and disease in Australia, responsible for about 15,000 deaths annually.^

Smoking kills more people in Australia than all the people killed by alcohol, other drugs, murder, suicide, road crashes, rail crashes, air crashes, poisoning, drowning, fires, falls, lightning, electrocution, snakes, spiders and sharks. Some of the diseases caused by smoking include: cancer, heart disease, stroke, emphysema, asthma, blindness*...

But you know this already. It says so on your pack of cigarettes.

These risk factors are taken into consideration by life risk insurers and are also reflected in what you pay for life insurance premiums each year - with smokers paying premiums around 30% higher than non-smokers.

The good news is that if you stop smoking and stay that way, you can have your insurance re-assessed after 12 months of non-smoking. Not only is it good for your health to stop smoking, it's also good for your wallet as you not only save on not buying cigarettes, you also save on your insurance premiums!
