Dear doctor I am erected to smoking and gutkha can you please give me suggestions to quit this bad habits.

The habit of smoking can cause a lot of difficulties like body pain breathless and many more symptoms. Best age to stop smoking is before 40, in fact, do not start all only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco/ or drugs or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like nicorette and taking a walk when you crave for smoke can all help. You can chew nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st may is “world no tobacco day” quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with a larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with a lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

I am 49 yrs. I have thyroid cancer. Ca thyroid with lung metastasis. Does it cure by taking homeopathic medicine.

lybrate-user, ca thyroid with lung metastasis is a too advance case of cancer and nobody can claim for cure even for 1st stage cancer. Homeopathy provides rejuvenate therapy for such non curable diseases which improve your health conditions and make you more strong.

I used to smoke from the past 2 years and now i'm trying to quit smoking. Can you please suggest me some medicine or home remedies to detox and clear my lungs and can you even suggest me how to quit smoking effectively as it's a bit hard to do it. Thank you!

Distract yourself. Do the dishes, turn on the tv, take a shower, or call a friend. The activity doesn’t matter as long as it gets your mind off smoking. Remind yourself why you quit. Focus on your reasons for quitting, including the health benefits (lowering your risk for heart disease and lung cancer, for example), improved appearance, money you’re saving, and enhanced self-esteem. Get out of a tempting situation. Where you are or what you’re doing may be triggering the craving. If so, a change of scenery can make all the difference. Reward yourself. Reinforce your victories. Whenever you triumph over a craving, give yourself a reward to keep yourself motivated. Find an oral substitute – keep other things around to pop in your mouth when cravings hit. Try mints, carrot or celery sticks, gum, or sunflower seeds. Or suck on a drinking straw. Keep your hands busy – squeeze balls, pencils, or paper clips are good substitutes to satisfy that need for tactile stimulation. Brush your teeth – the just-brushed, clean feeling can help banish cigarette cravings. Drink water – slowly drink a large glass of water. Not only will it help the craving pass, but staying hydrated helps minimize the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal. Get active – go for a walk, do some jumping jacks or pushups, try some yoga stretches, or run around the block. Try to relax – do something that calms you down, such as taking a warm bath, meditating, reading a book, or practicing deep breathing exercises go somewhere smoking is not permitted – step into a public building, store, mall, coffee shop, or movie theatre, for example. Deep breathe. Breathe in slowly through your nose for a count of three and exhale through your mouth for a count of three. Visualize your lungs filling with fresh air.

We need to look at what type of lung cancer it is whether it is small cell carcinoma of lung or non small cell carcinoma of lung depending on the renal function and the type of malignancies further chemo to be decided. If the renal function is not reversible then consider non renal toxic chemotherapy and that too in an experienced centres.
