Helping hand to quit smoking in Mumbai
The number of people in the world who smoke, is decreasing by the minute. More and more people are understanding the negative effects of smoking tobacco and are making proactive changes in their lifestyles to lead a healthy life.
The span of 2009-2010 to 2016-2017 saw a significant fall of 3.8% in the number of smokers in Maharashtra.
All across the state, 6% men and 1.4% women smoke tobacco. Those consuming smokeless tobacco are even more in numbers.
Mumbai is the biggest city in the state and hence contributes the major numbers in this statistic.
Although there is a fair decrease in the number of smokers, the numbers are still significantly dangerous.
This is the reason why ex-smokers and vapers should follow some tips when they decide to quit smoking. For all of you vapers in Mumbai, below are some tips that might be useful in order to quit smoking:
1. Don't be afraid of the fear
Most smokers have a paranoia and fear of the day when they will have to quit smoking. The addiction that they have for smoking leads them to think that they would never be able to quit smoking and when they decide to quit, they have an in-built fear mechanism that always pulls them back to smoking again.
So, you need to control that fear and convert that into motivation to push through these tough times. You should focus on the rewards you’ll reap once you have freed yourself from the addiction rather than giving up your resolution.
2. NRT like e-cigs
Various Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRT) like nicotine patches, chewing gums, nose sprays, e-cigarettes, etc.
While nicotine patches are an external treatment, chewing gum and e-cigarettes are treatments that include chewing and inhaling nicotine infused products.
Coming to e-cigarettes, it is advisable that the e-liquids used in such devices are of good quality and offer various options in nicotine levels.
