I wanted to share this very interesting article on how smoking increases severity and number of hot flashes in women:
Cigarettes can really screw with hormone balance, including increasing cortisol (stress hormone) levels. This article also said that there's larger numbers of women who closet smoke...I certainly was one!
Every day, every minute, every second that I choose not to smoke, I imagine that another cell is healing. I embrace feeling greater well-being and energy.
