Hi lybrate-user 1st of all I want to appreciate you for your willingness to quit smoking. It requires positive motivation and I hope you must have that. There are several methods for quitting smoking. Medicine is one of them. But without examining a client Doctor usually don't write medicine. You can follow the underlying tips. 1. Replace your cigarette by a lighter brand keeping the quantities same. 2. Make a weakly schedule to tapper off gradually one by one the replaced cigarettes. 3. If you want you can take Nicotine Gum 2 mg to substitute your cigarettes at a certain interval. But remember you should not chew it like other chewing gums. 3. You will start to get the positive effects of quitting cigarettes from the day one which will help to build up your motivation. 4. After quitting you may find frequent cravings for smoking. This is the most difficult time to keep you motivated. Remember 3 Ds. DEEP BREATHING, DRINK SIP OF WATER, DO SOMETHING ELSE to divert your transient craving impulse for smoking. By following 3Ds you can control your smoking. 5. There are several medications like imipramine, Bupropion, Varenicline and Nicotine Patch. Which are prescribed by specialist doctors. The doses are adjusted according to the numbers of cigarettes. But you should not try at your own. 6. Keep yourself busy in some productive activities, alternative pleasure like playing, doing yoga, making good friends etc. 6. Consult doctor specialised in this field Thanks.
