Perhaps your spouse recently left you, because he decided that he wanted to move back with his high school girlfriend. Or maybe you broke up with your husband, because you are tired of the fact that he can’t bring home a paycheck and won’t get into counseling.
In either case, you may pick up bad health habits, as you pursue your options in your Alabama divorce, child custody or family law case. For instance, you might start to smoke again. Or, if you already smoke, you may smoke more cigarettes per day. If that’s the case, you obviously don’t need to be scolded (yet again) about the dangers of smoking.
But do you have alternatives?
Leaving aside the fact that nicotine is a highly addictive substance, you may simply crave the soothing experience of the ritual. Nicotine also serves as a weight loss drug, thanks to its effect on the central nervous system and its ability to regulate one of the main fat storing enzymes, lipoprotein lipase.
On the other hand, you obviously you want to minimize how many fine particulates you inhale into your lungs as well as how much ammonia and formaldehyde you consume through smoking. Consider talking to your doctor about alternatives, such as e-cigarettes (also known as “vaping) or nicotine patches.
And just appreciate that it can require a tremendous amount of energy to quit smoking, while working through the divorce process. So don’t burden yourself with overly high expectations. Keep it simple. What are one or two “big changes” you can make to stay healthy during a divorce? For instance, you may want to stop drinking soda and switch from smoking tobacco cigarettes to e-cigarettes.
