Talk To Your Doctor About Quitting Smoking

Most television advertisements produced by pharmaceutical companies making quitting aids encourage smokers to talk to their doctors about quitting. I too think that it is important for people to talk to their doctors about quitting smoking--but for a totally different reason than the companies normally delivering the message.

Video discusses how I hope that people who have quit smoking talk to their doctors to help them to understand what they can do to really assist their patients to successfully quit smoking.

Can Taking A Break From Smoking Help You "Get Rid Of" Nicotine Tolerance?

Video made in response to question posed on "Extreme Nicotine Tolerance" video. See www.whyquit.com/joels-videos/can-taking-a-break-from-smoking-help-you-get-rid-of-nicotine-tolerance/ for the question that was posed and resources addressing the issues involved.

 

Additional side note: Well I see I am still not totally thinking straight from my recent concussion. I had an error in this video as to how long the man from my clinic was off before relapsing. I thought the time period was 45 years. I went to look at the video Lost long term quits and the actual time period was 35 years. Sorry for any confusion.

Is Quitting Smoking Harder Than Quitting Other Drugs?

Many if not most people have heard that quitting smoking is harder than quitting most other drugs. If this message is true it is no wonder that most smokers feel that quitting is close to impossible and trying to quit is not really worth the effort–considering the chances of success are basically so abysmal. The good news is that while many people say that quitting smoking is harder and the chances of success are close to impossible, in reality quitting is much simpler than most smokers think and the chances of success are much higher than most have been led to believe.

Feeling Like You Are Getting Sick After Quitting Smoking

 

 

Some people may start to feel as if they are getting cold or flu kind of symptoms when first quitting smoking. Some complain of burning sensations in their lungs. There is a regeneration of nerve cells throughout the larynx, trachea, and bronchi which may very well cause these kind of sensations. At the same time though, it is also always possible that the recent quitter is in fact coming down with a cold or a flu. The following resources explore the issues involved with why these symptoms may be happening from having just quit smoking, but also discusses the importance of getting them checked out if they are prolonged, intense or accompanied by other indicators of actual infection.

Why Do You Even Bother To Help THOSE People quit smoking?

When people observe smokers in the early stages of their quits they sometimes wonder why anyone would really want to help these people to actually get off and stay off of cigarettes. The reason for this sentiment is that the people may seem so miserable and so unhappy and at some times--so mean--that the observer just feels that these smokers are not worth any effort. The observer is making the assumption that these are bad people as opposed to the actual situation--these are often good people experiencing a bad time. This video explores this issue.
