Patient discussion about smoke

Q. why is smoking bad for you?

A. There are numerous reasons why smoking is bad: it increases the risk for many cancers (and the more nasty ones, the ones that are not easily treated, if at all), in increases the risk to disease of the heart and blood vessels (sounds less dangerous, but still No 1. killer), it can cause chronic obstructive lung disease (imagine sitting in your chair, dependent on the oxygen mask, while even lacing your shoes cause you to feel out of breath), and many others.

Not to mention the cosmetic aspect: it gives a yellow shade to your fingers and teeth, it accelerate damage to the skin and can cause hoarseness.

It doesn't affect only you but also the people around you - your children your spouse, your friend that you expose to the smoke. And we haven't even mentioned the economical burden and social aspects.

There are many other reasons, but the decision to accept smoking as a bad thing must first be made by the listener- otherwise all I mentioned above wouldn't make any difference.

Q. Am I addicted to smoking? I only smoke when I go out with my friends to a pub and at parties. Does this make me an addict?

A. You might not be addicted; however you shouldn't smoke at all since it is very unhealthy. If all your friends smoke, maybe you should start hanging out with non smoking friends as well or take your smoking friends out to places where they can't smoke and then you will not feel obligated to join them.

Q. what to do to quit smoking?

A. that's a tough one- quit smoking is a physical and mental struggle. first of all getting rid of the dependency on cigarettes, and then getting rid of the old habits (smoking after meals, in pubs, with coffee). it's harder then it seems. you may gain weight while doing so, so i recommend starting a diet for a month or two while smoking only a 1/4 of the amount you used to smoke and after a month just stop.
it's hard i know- i smoked almost 2 packs a day for 20 years. i stopped one day, i had the feeling there's an earthquake for 2 weeks. you just need a good motivation, like your children's health.
crossing fingers for you!
I'm here if you'll need help!!
