Hii. This is pradeep, I had a habit of smoking, will you please give me a suggestion to quit smoking. And to clean my lungs.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Where there is a will there is a way. So if you have decided to quit smoking then you may have to stick to your decision and take professional help if needed because the problem with most of the people are they again start smoking after some days. You might have heard the saying' quitting smoking is very easy I have done, I have done it thousand time' your lungs will automatically get clean if you quit and breath fresh non polluted air.

It seems like you have an anxiety issues, which may have triggered due to some incidents. Consider these suggestions. -first, slow down. When we are anxious our thoughts race, our hearts pounds, our breathing accelerates. So at the first sign of it see what all you can do to intentionally slow things down. -anxiety lives in our minds and often manifests in the body that's why you are feeling dryness of your mouth, fast heart beats, racing thoughts etc. So take a few moments to connect with your five senses, it will help bring you back into the moment. -be mindful while doing simple tasks, like walking, eating, reading, cooking etc. Being mindful helps remind us we are in control of our choices. - be aware of your thought process. When you have a negative thought, ask yourself" is this thought true? chances are your worst fears are not the reality of what's happening. - be aware of your triggers. If you know your triggers, you can prepare soothing practices better. When the mind feels prepared, it's more at ease. Take care.
