This Is The Best Way To Quit Smoking
If you’re a smoker trying to quit, boy do you have options. Patches, chewing gum, lollipops and even lasers! But if you’re overwhelmed with choice, maybe try nothing at all. Hi aware citizens, Trace here for DNews. Now smoking is bad for you it causes cancer and a gazillion other diseases. You know that.
We know that. This is your life and were not going to tell you what to do. But we are going to tell you the science behind quitting if you or someone you know is trying to give up the habit. Now before we breakdown the options, we have to first understand why its so difficult to quit in the first place.
One word: nicotine. Its whats naturally found in tobacco and as addictive as heroin and cocaine. When inhaled, nicotine travels quickly to the brain. There, it releases dopamine and other feel good chemicals into brain cell receptors. This creates more and more nicotine receptors in the brain. When these receptors are starved of nicotine you go through intense withdrawal, which can.
Lead to depression and tension, until you get your next fix. So the trick may be to gradually giving your brain less and less nicotine, which is where the highly advertized treatment of nicotine replacement therapy comes into play. Were talking about patches, chewing gum, lozenges, inhalers and even nasal spray and lollipops. But do these methods actually work?.
Lets take one of the most popular methods, the patch. This is typically a reservoir of nicotine sandwiched between an occlusive and permeable adhesive layers. Stick it on your skin and the nicotine slowly leaches through the layers of your dermis, to the hypodermis, which contains blood vessels needed to bring the drug into the bloodstream. This happens at a much slower rate and at a lower concentration than smoke inhalation.
Different patches contain different amounts of nicotine, slowly ridding your bodys dependence of the drug. But is it effective? Well, one study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health looked at 787 adults who had recently quit smoking. They were surveyed three different times over the course of six years and asked questions.
About what type of nicotine replacement therapy they had used, the duration of the therapy, if they had consulted a professional, and their current smoking habits. During each one of those checkins around a third of the participants had relapsed. This led researchers to conclude that using nicotine replacement therapy is no more effective in helping people stop smoking cigarettes in the longterm than trying to quit on ones own.
What about alternative ways to quit smoking? Some people have tried acupuncture and hypnosis, but based on some of our last tutorials, its a little up for debate on whether that works or not. And others have even tried lasers. Yes, lasers well, lowlevel lasers therapy. The company Innovative Laser Therapy claims that an hour of therapy is all youd need.
