Nicotine patches by cipla available in different strength to put on arm. One patch for seven days. U need a rehab center to know the process n procedure. Small to large unit. Caution not a singal kash of smoke. Why? It may lead to heart attack. So you need a md physician of rehab center to guide u. For withdrawal symptoms you need clonazepam 1.00 mg at night till you need patche of 75 mg. Ok.

Dear Lybrate user, for any deaddiction treatment, the strong desire in the patient to quit the addiction is the base for success -- so we have to strongly convince him the danger of continuing the habit - --you may take him to cancer hospitals ; wards with copd patients etc and let him see the sufferings of such people and let him hear from them --how they got the disease. Also persons whom he love and respect may try to convince him ; sometimes a tragic incident in his family may be the trigger for this decision -- let us hope-- he will not wait for such a tragedy to take the strong decision.---once he had taken the decision you can take him to a suitable center for deaddiction and have the treatment --the most important point is -he shall not go back to the same environment which made him an addict ---you have to arrange for social and other type of rehabilitation to him .-----ok.

Its almost 13 months of my quit smoking. Over come many effects of smoking cessation under guidance and advice from doctors. Now a weird issue with me 1. Whenever someone do smoke near me my entire body feels very weird, feelings like light head or headache occur from out of the blue, my face and neck feels tight and my saliva starts filled up my throat 2. My lower jaw becomes tight I feel like I am not able to open my mouth normally on advice from cari doctors I have been to dentist, cardio,neuro, ent and de addiction opd. Than cari doctor who examined me at first said not to worry just be on track but I found it very hard most of the time cause I am not able to control these weird things or feelings. I usually sit down, close my eye and breath. After few minutes my body become normal but those 5, 10 minutes always hard for me to face. Doctor always advice to me that I must have a well planned diet and lifestyle for at least next 12 months .he always rejects any kind of medicine saying you should not depend on them any advice.

THESE THINGS R COMMON WITH ALL THOSE WANT TO QUITE SMOKE. MY FATHER IS A STRONG ADDICT FOR 40 YRS 3 PACKETS A DAY, WORK IS WITH LOBOURS BUT MY AUNT WHO IS IN HUSTON ADD HIM WITH PATCHES CONTAIN NICOTINE OF DIFFERENT STRENGTH FOR DIFFERENT LENGTH OF TIME SO ALL FEELINGS R THERE BUT IN A LIMIT SO HE COULD MAINTAIN WITH ONE ANTIANXIOLYTIC. THE TIME PERIOD PASSED A BIT EASY. AFTER ONE YEAR WHEN EVERYTHING GONE HE START COMPLICATIONS THAT IS VERY PAINFUL.HE WAS NO MORE. HE DEVELOPED COPD WHICH WAS EXAGGERATED. SOME SUFFER EARLY , OTHER LATE. NOTHING MUCH CAN BE ADVISABLE.
