I consume tobacco dip much and want to quit but using since 6 years can't avoid it I want to know how how to get rid.

Internal Medicine Specialist, Bangalore
There are chewing gums which slowly get rid of addiction, without causing much side effects. If the desire to leave it is strong, you can definitely stop chewing. Good luck.

Distract yourself. 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.

Dear lybrate user, You should do yoga and meditation for relaxation of mind. Take good healthy food, including proteins, vitamins, milk, curd, rice, green leafy vegetables, salads and take almonds, cashew, peanuts instead of chewing tobacco. And you should start homeopathic treatment for the deaddiction of tobacco. And for a permanent cure, you may ask us for best homeopathy medicines

Tobacco Consumption - How To Manage It?

Tobacco Consumption - How To Manage It?

Tobacco Cessation or the practice of quitting smoking requires dedication, determination, and planning. Tobacco smoking is a bad habit that one might have got from adolescence but as the person grows up, he/she finds it difficult to maintain good health due to this reason. That is why it is important to adopt some of the ways that can help to quit smoking.

Let us look at some of these ways:

1. Cold Turkey

This is one of the most effective ways to quit tobacco smoking, but it also is one of the most difficult ways for the purpose. Cold turkey needs sheer willpower because this practice requires a person to quit smoking all of a sudden. The practice of quitting smoking is done without any outside help, therapy or medication.

2. Nicotine Substitutions

This is also a very effective method to quit smoking. Tobacco smoking is the process where a person pumps nicotine in the blood through the smoke. As soon as one stops getting that nicotine hit, the person starts to get agitated and starts smoking again. What if one could substitute that way of nicotine consumption? That would be better. So, nicotine patches and nicotine gums are one of those mediums through which a person gets nicotine in blood without the need for smoking.

3. Bupropion

The human brain gets dependent on nicotine over time, which also means that the mind is dependent on the nicotine to be happy (Dopamine secretion). As soon as people withdraw themselves from nicotine, the mind starts to have mood alterations and the person may also feel depressed. Bupropion is an antidepressant that helps a smoker quit smoking without being depressed and agitated. Bupropion also reduces the pleasure and other symptoms the smoker gets from tobacco smoking.

4. Varenicline

This is also one of the widely used antidepressants that help tobacco smokers manage their mood during withdrawal. The varenicline reduces the pleasing effect that a person gets from smoking. Though varenicline is quite effective, it is discontinued in some countries because of its side effects like nausea and fatigue.

5. Therapy

This is also one of the most helpful methods to quit smoking. Smokers usually have certain triggers that urge them to smoke. The therapist talks about those particular triggers and helps a person manage those triggers through different activities like talking therapy and mind exercises. Going to a therapist is one of the smartest decisions one can take as the first step to tobacco cessation.

Quitting smoking isn’t an easy step. However, through systematic planning and seeking help, it can be managed. Tobacco cessation takes time, but once people achieve their goal, they will feel healthy and happy like never before.
