Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

Smoking - The Process Of Slow Poisoning!

MBBS

Smoking - The Process Of Slow Poisoning!

The consumption of tobacco by humans began many years ago and has taken many forms ranging from rolled tobacco leaves and pipes to cigarettes. Smoking is a habit that is easy to start, but is difficult to quit. Smoking has both short term effects such as bad breath, tooth and gum loss, premature ageing and weakened immune system and long term effects that impair the respiratory system and cardiovascular system.

Smoking can cause and worsen diseases like cancer of lungs, throat, mouth, kidneys and blood and other chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases. Smokers also have a higher risk of conditions such as dementia, cataract, pulmonary fibrosis, psoriasis, osteoporosis and optic neuropathy. Smoking can also affect fertility, cause erectile disorders and speed up the onset of menopause.

It is said that a smoker’s life expectancy is 10 years less than that of a non-smoker. There are three main components of cigarette smoke that can harm the body.

  1. Nicotine: Nicotine is what makes cigarettes addictive and make smoking a habit. In the beginning, it may stimulate the brain but in the long run, your body can begin to crave for nicotine. If this craving is not fulfilled, it can cause irritability, restlessness, headaches and shortened attention span.
  2. Tar: Tar in cigarettes contains many harmful chemicals and is deposited in the lungs. From here it enters the blood vessels and is carried to other parts of the body. In many ways, tar is akin to a poison.
  3. Carbon monoxide: Carbon monoxide affects the blood’s capacity to transport oxygen from the heart to the rest of the body. In the case of pregnant women, carbon monoxide can also reduce the amount of oxygen available to the growing foetus and hence cause complications in pregnancy. Children born to smokers are also said to have an increased risk of suffering from congenital defects and conditions like asthma.

The good news is that quitting it is possible and its benefits can be experienced right away. Within the first 72 hours of quitting, the bronchial tubes begin to open up and breathing becomes easier. If you stop smoking before the age of 50, you can reduce your risk of dying from smoking related complications by 50%. The most important part of quitting nicotine is your own determination and willpower. Nicotine replacement therapy in the form of gums, patches, lozenges and inhalers can also help deal with nicotine withdrawal symptoms and make the process easier.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello sir i am from Hyderabad. I am smoking from 2002. Present also I have a habit of smoking. Daily minimum 8 to 10 cigarettes I will smoke. Now I want to quit the smoking. So what type of medical check I have to do before quit. And how many days will take to clear my body from nicotine.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, congratulations for deciding to quit smoking. If you decide to quit, there is no need to do any test. If you want to know what damages are done already, you can consult a doctor and get appropriate tests done. Actually the craving takes around 6 months to go away from your mind. Nicotine and its withdrawal takes only 3 months of to clear from body.

Don't avoid your fears. It might seem smart to avoid the situations that trigger your obsessive thoughts, but the more you avoid them, the scarier they feel. Instead, expose yourself to your OCD triggers, then try to resist or delay the urge to complete your relief-seeking compulsive ritual.

Feeling low, having crying spells, sleep and appetite disturbances, and difficulty in concentration and attention are some of the signs of Depression. Consult a Psychiatrist for a detailed assessment. It is likely with medication and counseling the symptoms will improve. If he is feeling suicidal or hopeless consult a Psychiatrist immediately.

Need to focus and concentrate but cannot. Confused in terms of every aspects. Things seems easy always but not in reality. What should i do?

BHMS, Diploma in Dermatology

Being in focus is not the same thing as concentrating, although people use the terms 'focus' and 'concentration' interchangeably. And if an individual is talking casually there is nothing wrong with doing so. However, from a philosophical perspective the two are different, albeit, they do work best when used together.

You will rue the day you become obese and have difficulty knocking down your weight. The whole world is fighting an almost losing battle with the bulge. As long as you are active and fit, do not worry about your emaciated looks. If you seriously want to put on weight, you can put on muscle mass. This can be achieved by going to a gym and the instructor or coach will help you in this regard: as a general rule, if you do brisk exercise you will develop muscle and if you do slow stretching exercises you will tone your body. Weight bearing exercise, even though it is on the slow side will generally, add much desirable weight. Food wise any increase in carbohydrates will tend to add to your bulk. By nature, if your basic metabolic rate is high, whatever you eat will easily get metabolized and will spare nothing to add to your weight. You could learn meditation and yoga to slow down your metabolism and that will also make you a calm person. Whatever happens, do not neglect your physical fitness with sufficient exercise, eat well, sleep well, be stress-free as much as possible, and have a good collection of friends.
