Hello. Smoking causes about 9 out of 10 of all lung cancer deaths in men and women. -Smokers are more likely than nonsmokers to develop heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer. -Smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in your body (Bladder, Blood (acute myeloid leukemia), Cervix, Colon and rectum (colorectal), Esophagus, Kidney and ureter, Larynx, Liver, Oropharynx (includes parts of the throat, tongue, soft palate, and the tonsils), Pancreas, Stomach, Trachea, bronchus, and lung. -Smoking can make it harder for a woman to become pregnant and can affect her baby's health before and after birth. -Smoking can also affect men's sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage. -Smoking can affect bone health. -Smoking affects the health of your teeth and gums and can cause tooth loss. -Smoking is a cause of type 2 diabetes mellitus and can make it harder to control. -Smoking causes general adverse effects on the body, including inflammation and decreased immune function. -Nicotine (which is present in cigarette) stimulates the release of dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and acetylcholine, all of which have been linked to wakefulness, and blood nicotine levels of smokers are highest at bedtime. Thus, smokers spent more time in light sleep and less time in deep sleep. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine which will help you to get rid of your habit of smoking and it’s side-effects. Schwabe's Daphne Indica/ thrice daily for 3 months. After a month, report back to me.
