Health Cigarette smoking is a highly addictive behavior due to the presence of nicotine. It has serious health repercussions and is be.ing less social acceptable. Achieving smoking control requires a change in behavior as well as withdrawal from nicotine addiction. Methods of quitting include substituting a non cigarette form of nicotine or tricking the brain by the use of non-nicotine substitutes. Cigarette smoking is one of the most difficult addictions to conquer. Achieving smoking control is especially hard because of several factors. One is that tobacco is .monplace and perfectly legal, while another is that tobacco contains one of the most addictive substances known, nicotine. Those smokers that are successful have usually tried to quit and failed several times before breaking the habit. So, just remember,If at first you don’t succeed, try try again. Cigarettes have been seen as a sign of maturity and sophistication in the past, but since the health risks have be.e known, there is a more negative aspect of smoking and a greater need for smoking control. Smoking is forbidden in many more places now than in the past and is frowned upon by more people as the number of smokers declines. The health risks are obvious with cigarette smoking. These include chronic bronchitis, a chronic "smoker’s cough," emphysema, and of course lung cancer which is usually fatal. Smoking also stains the teeth and fingers, decreases the sense of taste, and results in bad breath in addition to the more serious side effects. Smoking creates odors in upholstery and often damages clothing as well. Why are people willing to smoke when there are so many negative aspects? The answer is that smoking is not just a habit but an actual physical addiction. Nicotine found in all tobacco products is one of the most addictive drugs known, more powerful than even heroin according to some studies. The body be.es physically dependent on nicotine and suffers moderate to several symptoms when it is withdrawn. While difficult, it is possible to achieve smoking control. This requires attention to one or all of three different areas. One is control of the addiction which requires either a substitute form of nicotine or a substance which controls the addiction portion of the brain. Another is control of the habit of picking up a cigarette when drinking or reading or just relaxing. And yet another aspect is substituting another behavior for smoking such as chewing gum or using a non nicotine substitute habit such as a cinnamon or sweet gum stick. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
