Is E-cigarette Better Than Smoking?

Is E-cigarette Better Than Smoking?

 

Relentless campaigning by both the government and NGOs has finally made people realize that smoking can be destructive for their lungs and pulmonary system. Ever since this awareness has spread, people are junking cigarettes and turning to E-cigarettes instead. What is an E-cigarette? An electronic cigarette is a device that resembles a normal cigarette. It runs on batteries. An E-cigarette expels puffs of vaporized nicotine or a non-nicotine solution. This is called vaping. Though it does not burn tobacco, it gives the user the same sensation as smoking a cigarette. E-cigarettes were introduced to be a safer substitute for cigarettes and turn people away from smoking.

What about Nicotine Content?

Some E-cigarettes are absolutely nicotine free. However, many varieties that claim to contain zero nicotine actually contain trace amounts of it. Typically, the nicotine content of E-cigarettes varies from 0-34 mg.

A regular cigarette, on the other hand, can contain anything from 8-12 mg of nicotine. Therefore, you cannot really say that an E-cigarette will reduce your nicotine exposure. Vaping may introduce nicotine into your system.

Is E-cigarette better than smoking?

E-cigarettes have many downsides and it really should be avoided. Here are a few ways E-cigarettes can harm you –

• E-cigarettes contain nicotine. Nicotine can lead to addiction, which is very hard to shrug off.

• The nicotine in E-cigarettes can damage your lungs because it contains a chemical called diacetyl, which can have a terrible impact on your lungs • When young people binge on E-cigarettes, it can impede the development of their brains

• If pregnant women vape, then it will have a detrimental effect on the foetus and impede its development

• E-cigarettes that use tobacco can be carcinogenic, which means they will increase your risk of contracting cancer in the future

• These cigarette substitutes also contain Volatile Organic Compounds and many heavy metals such as nickel, lead and tin. These contaminants enter your bloodstream when you smoke an E-cigarette.

• Even passive smoking can be dangerous. If you smoke an E-cigarette near others, their bodies too will absorb the toxins through the skin and eyes.

• Using E-cigarettes is also linked to other forms of addiction such as alcoholism or substance abuse

• It can cause behavioural changes as well Therefore, we can safely conclude that contrary to popular belief, smoking an E-cigarette is in no way safer than puffing on a regular one.

Actually, 14 puffs of an E-cigarette will equal one cigarette. In terms of drops of the E-liquid, one drop equal to seven puffs. Therefore, two drops will be the same as one cigarette.

E-cigarettes may be a rage right now, but research shows that it comes with its own set of adverse effects. All forms of smoking are harmful, including vaping.

How can 8 quit smoking? It has been 18 years since I started smoking, I believe that I reached point of quitting. Please advise me.

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.

Preventive Health Care - How To Ensure It?

Preventive Health Care - How To Ensure It?

We have often heard that prevention is better than cure. After all, who would want to spend time being sick, if it can be avoided and no day ever needs to be a wash out. Well, it can be said that as long as a person is willing to put in a little effort, there can be dividends in the form of not having to pay multiple visits to the doctor. Let’s find out how exactly to go about practising preventive health care.

  1. Quit smokingAs it says on the packets of cigarettes, it has been proven beyond any shadow of doubt that smoking is injurious to health. As a matter of fact, the habit of smoking can not only lead to cancer as it is most commonly associated with, but also result in other ill conditions and diseases. Quitting smoking is indeed the most important tenet of preventive health.
  2. Sleep well: Many people think that the practice of sleeping enough for adequate health is overrated, but it is just so very important. A number of people are putting their health in jeopardy in the long run by not making the right choice of prioritising sleep over other activities. There are various risks a person exposes himself or herself to by not getting enough sleep. Inadequate sleep does not provide the body with the amount of rest that is needed for it to repair, heal and start afresh.
  3. Cut down on alcohol: Alcohol is something that is enjoyable as long as the limits regarding the consumption of it are maintained. A general rule is that no man should be having more than two drinks a day and a woman should not go beyond a drink. When these limits are not paid heed to, the risk of some life-threatening diseases such as cancers as well as liver cirrhosis spikes.
  4. Follow proper diet and exercise: While it is true that degeneration of the joints of a person over the course of time is an inevitability, there is a lot that can be done by a person who wants to avoid the prospect of having his or her quality of life compromised by arthritis. Following a strict diet, avoiding fast food and drinking plenty of water helps in keeping yourself healthy. Similarly, regular workout and exercising prevents a person from being overweight, which makes a substantial difference in fighting arthritis!

My husband is having smoking habit for the past 5 years. He wishes to quit the habit. I request you to kindly give a suggestion to how to quit this habit? Pls give any tips.

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.

Say No To Tobacco With Homeopathy!

Say No To Tobacco With Homeopathy!

You’d probably have to have been living in another solar system over the last 10 years not to be aware of the risks associated with tobacco smoking; there’s no longer any doubt about the risks associated with this activity. There’s a huge range of solutions for the person seeking assistance to disconnect himself from the desire to smoke. Some of these proffered solutions work; some don’t and some, such as nicotine replacement, for most seem to offer only limited relief and have a few notable limitations, including break-through cravings, pregnancy and various other contraindications. The nature of tobacco craving, the physical and psychological factors that motivate it, modify it or enhance it mean that its characteristics are usually quite individualized, and therefore the more the therapy is tailored to those individual characteristics, the more successful the therapy that assists with smoking cessation is likely to be. Homeopathy is perfectly positioned to meet these requirements, and what follows are some of the more notable homeopathic medicines that have found favor with prominent authorities in this area.

SOME HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES -

1. Aconitum napellus -

 Aconite is a wonderful remedy for acute stress and has also been used for anxious dreams and nightmares, vertigo, headaches (with an associated boiling sensation), red, inflamed eyes, dry mouth and throat, intense thirst, vomiting, a short, dry, croupy cough, tickling in the throat and chest pain brought on with coughing. Symptoms are worse at night and after midnight, dry cold wind and warm rooms and better for open air.

2. Arsenicum album -

The Arsenicum type displays a classic picture of the recently ex-smoker: restless, anxious, constantly shifting, fearful, easily exhausted, emaciated and any area of pain often has a burning character. Also seen here may be an unquenchable thirst, burning eyes, respiratory catarrh and lung pain. Symptoms are worse in wet weather or cold, and better for heat and warm drinks. 

3. Caladium -

One of the great tobacco craving remedies, Caladium promotes a dislike for tobacco, often to the point of nausea or vomiting if used when smoking. A keynote symptom for this remedy is a dread of motion. Headaches, memory loss, dyspnoea and catarrhal asthma may also be noted here. Symptoms are worse for motion and better after sleep. CamphorIcy coldness is characteristic here and it’s often accompanied by a throbbing, occipital headache, insomnia, weak bradycardia and a violent, dry, hacking cough. Symptoms are worse at night and from motion and better from warmth.

4. Daphne indica -

Like Caladium, Daphne is one of the most frequently used remedies for tobacco craving. The symptoms that correspond to it include insomnia, a bursting headache, shooting pains in the extremities, twitching, burning pain in the stomach and fetid breath. 

5. Eugenia -

The primary characteristic linking Eugenia with smoking is nausea that’s improved by smoking. One may from time to time encounter a patient whose attempts at smoking cessation are constantly thwarted by nausea that’s relieved by smoking, and in this instance, Eugenia can be very effective.
