When I was the ripe old age of 13, I was introduced to the world of peer pressure. Along with that came smoking cigarettes. I thought I was cool, with it, or whatever you want to call it; sadly, I was mistaking. Throughout my teens and even into my twenties (except when I was pregnant), cigarettes remained a vice that I didn't want to give up. That is until I was getting sick all the time with chest infections and sore throats.

Is My Past Hurting My Health?

I was combing the latest women’s news and came across this article Just How Bad are Your Health Vices? on msnbc.  It got me thinking about some of the bad stuff I did when I was younger.  The article points out some of the various vices/habits we may have had as teens or young adults and how those could affect us later in life.

I Was a Smoker

When I was the ripe old age of 13, I was introduced to the world of peer pressure.  Along with that came smoking cigarettes.  I thought I was cool, with it, or whatever you want to call it; sadly, I was mistaking.  Throughout my teens and even into my twenties (except when I was pregnant), cigarettes remained a vice that I didn’t want to give up.  That is until I was getting sick all the time with chest infections and sore throats.

I literally felt like I was hacking up my lungs on a daily basis – it was time to quit.  With lots of prayer and a willingness on my part, I gave them up.  I’m not sure how much the years of smoking damaged my lungs and body, but the more time that is put between me and cigs, the better.

Tell us something that you did, tried, or habitually loved in your younger years that you think might have affected your health and beauty.  Please share!  And be well-be beautiful.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone
