QUIT SMOKING

QUIT SMOKING

There is a lag of several years between when people start using tobacco and when their health suffers and this is the major cause why it is difficult to convince our youth about smoking hazards.

It is our prime duty to help those who wish to quit.

If you want to get rid of the nasty habit then take

Ignatia Amara - Q 1 drop in 1/2 cup of water twice after meals; discontinue the medicine as soon as you feel aversion

to smoking.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has selected Tobacco Health Warnings as the theme for

the World No Tobacco Day (31 May 2009) .
 

Tobacco health warnings that contain both pictures and words are the most effective at convincing people to quit. Picture warnings convey a clear and immediate

message, even to illiterate rural people.

 

Such pictorial warnings appear in several countries increasing public awareness of the serious health risks of tobacco use and ensure that the packaging tells the truth

about the deadly product within.
 

People are unaware of the extent of the harm that tobacco may cause, even if they have some idea that it is a health risk, tobacco companies use packaging and

other advertising techniques to make tobacco appealing.
 
Tobacco hazards

Tobacco use is one of the biggest public health threats the world has ever faced. It is also a social problem nonsmokers and children are bound to inhale the air

polluted by smoking thus suffering from passive smoking. Several times little children are seen to smoke  when their are parents are outside and smoking material is

in their easy reach.
 

Youth are attracted towards smoking and chewing tobacco by seeing several others doing so and advertisements of tobacco companies; their friends also offer them

cigarette / bidi / gutakha / khaini / mainpuri etc. and thus they get accustomed to  tobacco use in some form or other.Even girls are falling pray to this and in students

smoking is thought to be a sign of smartness and a symbol of heroism.
 

Globally, use of tobacco products is increasing.
 

Almost half of the world's children breathe air polluted by tobacco smoke.
 

The epidemic is shifting to the developing world.
 

More than 80% of the world's smokers live in low and middle-income countries.
 

Tobacco use kills 5.4 million people a year - an average of one person every six seconds - and accounts for one in 10 adult deaths worldwide.
 

Tobacco kills up to half of all users.
 

It is a risk factor for six of the eight leading causes of deaths in the world.
 

100 million deaths were caused by tobacco in the 20th century. If current trends continue, there will be up to one billion deaths in the 21st century.
 

Unchecked, tobacco-related deaths will increase to more than eight million a year by 2030, and 80% of those deaths will occur in the developing world.

Smoking causes many types of cancer, which may not develop for years. But cancers account for only about half of the deaths related to smoking. Smoking is also a

major cause of heart disease, aneurysms, bronchitis, emphysema, and stroke, and it contributes to the severity of pneumonia and asthma. The truth is that cigarette

smokers die younger than nonsmokers. Smoking also causes many short-term effects, such as decreased lung function. Because of this, smokers often suffer

shortness of breath and nagging coughs, and they often will tire easily during physical activity. Some other common short-term effects: a diminished ability to smell

and taste, premature aging of the skin, and increased risk of sexual impotence in men.

 

Smokers in their 30s and 40s are five times more likely to have a heart attack than non-smokers
Smoking contributes to coronary artery disease which increases the risk of a heart attack or stroke
It does huge damage to the lungs and massively increases the risk of lung cancer
Smoking also increases the risk of other cancers such as oral, uterine, liver, kidney, bladder, stomach and cervical cancer
Exposure to second hand smoke can reduce lung function, exacerbate respiratory problems, trigger asthma attacks, reduce coronary blood flow, irritate eyes, and cause headaches and nausea
Smoking in pregnancy greatly increases the risk of miscarriage and is also associated with lower birth weight

Homoeopathy safer and superior medicine. 
If the proof of the pudding is in eating, it is impossible to deny that like cures like.  

A good guideline to remember is:
Homoeopathy as the general rule; allopathy as a last resort.
