Why is it important to quit
However, our bodies react to nicotine consumption, and withdrawal of it, in weird manners. In many cases, sudden withdrawal of nicotine may have adverse effects. That’s why people resort to nicotine gums or even chewing tobacco at times.
The best alternative, however, is Electronic Nicotine Delivery System (ENDS). Better known as Vapes or Electronic Cigarettes. It is completely free of tobacco. You can control your nicotine consumption and the urge to blow out harmful smoke by using it. It will help you completely give up on cigarette over a span of a few days. You can do it one step at a time.
First, stop smoking but let your body get adjusted to it by consuming a controlled amount of nicotine. Gradually take down the nicotine amount and go completely nicotine free. But you can still blow out clouds. And within the next few days, stop that as well.
In short, it contains nicotine, which is addictive. Nicotine changes the way you think and act. If you are addicted to nicotine, you crave the “buzz” you feel from using it. This is true for smokeless tobacco and smoking. The more you use nicotine, the higher the amount you have to take to get the “buzz” effect..
Smokeless tobacco use has short- and long-term effects on your health. Short-term effects include:
- Bad breath
- Teeth staining
- Tooth decay
- Receding gums
- Mouth sores etc..
Over time, use can cause cancer. This is because smokeless tobacco contains 28 carcinogens, or cancer-causing agents. The most common types of cancer are mouth, tongue, cheek, gum, and esophageal (throat) cancer. Nicotine can raise blood pressure and cholesterol levels. It increases your risk of having a heart attack. Smokeless tobacco is a risk factor for countless other health conditions and related problems. If you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, you should quit right away.
According to the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), certain groups of people are more likely to use smokeless tobacco. These groups include men, athletes, and people who live in rural areas. Smokeless tobacco is addictive, which makes it hard to quit. You actually get more nicotine in your bloodstream from smokeless tobacco than you do from cigarettes. This is one reason why quitting smokeless tobacco can be harder than quitting smoking.
Using smokeless tobacco is a developed habit for most people. You may use it in certain situations, such as social events or sporting games. Or you may use it when you’re around certain people. It can be hard to break these patterns of behavior. However, smokeless tobacco users have quit successfully, and so can you. Your family doctor can help you quit. The tips below can help as well.
Make a list
World No Tobacco Day reminds us of the harms associated with tobacco consumption & a day to reaffirm our commitment to reduce this menace.

To help you commit, write down your reasons for wanting to quit. For example, quitting prevents possible health effects. It saves you money. It helps you set a good example for family and friends. Keep your personal list where you can see it each day. It will serve to motivate you along the way.
Mark the calendar
Once you decide to quit, set a date and stick to it. Choose a date 2 to 4 weeks from today. Quitting can be hard, so map out a plan that works for you. To start, identify the times and places you normally use smokeless tobacco. Then, plan to avoid these situations or have tobacco substitutes with you. Get rid of all your smokeless tobacco products before your quit date. It may help to cut back on the amount of chew or dip you use before that.
Your family, friends, and doctor can provide support. If possible, find a friend or family member to quit with. Studies have shown that people who quit with a partner are more successful. You also can ask your doctor to recommend a support group that can help you quit.
Some of the activities which are organized for celebrating the day are public marches, demonstrations programmes, big banners, advertising campaigns through educational programs, direct oral communication with common public to encourage and promote them to stop smoking, organize meetings for involved campaigners, marches, public debates, anti-tobacco activities, public art, health camps, rallies and parades, implementing new laws to restrict the smoking in particular areas and so many effective activities. It has not been declared as a public holiday or official holiday however, it is celebrated with lots of effective campaigns.
The true face of smoking is disease, death and horror – not the glamour and sophistication the pushers in the tobacco industry try to portray.
The health which is lethal and known as brain “wanting” disease which can never be cured however can be fully arrested. It binds the brain dopamine pathways just like other illegal drugs, meth, alcohol, heroin and etc. It prepares the brain to send false message about the need of nicotine to the body as necessary as other survival activities like eating and drinking food and liquids.
Varieties of nicotine addiction quitting method are provided by the health organizations to help the ex-users on the earth to prevent their lives. WHO has banned the promotion, advertisement and sponsorship of the tobacco or its products while celebrating the World No Tobacco Day of 2008 and through the campaign message of “Tobacco-free youth”. Please Dear all, Aviod this.
