Common side effects of Smoking

Smoking contributes to various respiratory issues, such as bronchial asthma, COPD, emphysema, and even lung cancer. Nicotine in tobacco accelerates atherogenesis, leading to an increased risk of coronary artery heart disease.
Moreover, smoking promotes the proliferation of cells in the lungs, including Langerhans’ cells, which can further exacerbate lung-related problems.

Smoking not only affects the smoker but also those around them through second-hand smoke, which promotes vascular inflammation and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Additionally, smoking reduces the general immune status, making smokers more prone to infections.

E-cigarettes, often seen as a safer alternative, can worsen the prognosis of respiratory illnesses in adolescents with asthma, highlighting the importance of quitting tobacco and nicotine altogether.

Benefits of quitting smoking

Quitting smoking offers numerous health benefits that can significantly improve your quality of life. Within just 20 minutes of quitting, your heart rate and blood pressure drop, and within 12 hours, the carbon monoxide level in your blood returns to normal.

Long-term benefits include a reduced risk of lung cancer, which declines with increasing years since cessation. Quitting smoking by age 40 eliminates most of the excess risk associated with tobacco dependence.

Moreover, cancer patients who quit smoking may experience a reduction in cancer-related mortality. Smoking cessation after a cancer diagnosis improves survival rates. The risk for most cancers drops progressively as time since quitting increases.

Approximately 9% of long-term cancer survivors continue to smoke, highlighting the importance of smoking cessation programs and support for those battling nicotine withdrawal symptoms.

Available Treatment Options

Effective pharmacological therapies for smoking cessation are offered, including nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), varenicline, bupropion, and cytisine. These medications help reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to quit smoking.

Licensed healthcare providers carefully evaluate each patient’s unique needs and customize a treatment plan that may include one or more of these evidence-based medications. Studies show that using cessation medications increases the likelihood of successfully quitting tobacco use.
In addition to prescription medications, guidance is provided on over-the-counter NRT options, such as nicotine gum, patches, and lozenges. These products deliver controlled doses of nicotine to help smokers gradually wean off their dependence.

Healthcare professionals also offer tips for managing cravings and developing a personalized quit plan, which may include setting a specific quit date and identifying triggers. While ongoing behavioral counseling is not provided, its importance in the smoking cessation process is recognized and patients are encouraged to seek additional support through local smoking cessation programs or support groups.

Over the Counter Medications and Self-Care Tips

Over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) medications, such as nicotine gum, patches, and lozenges, can effectively double the odds of successfully quitting smoking. These OTC NRTs are widely available without a prescription and provide a controlled dose of nicotine to help manage cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

Combining NRT with self-care tips, like identifying triggers, developing coping strategies, and seeking support from friends and family, can further increase the chances of quitting successfully.

Universal complete coverage of OTC NRT by health insurance plans could significantly improve access to these effective quit aids. Public health interventions, such as anti-smoking media campaigns, can also play a crucial role in encouraging quit attempts and raising awareness about the benefits of smoking cessation.

Healthcare provider interventions, including brief advice and counseling, can further improve cessation rates when combined with NRT and self-care strategies. While OTC NRT has shown higher efficacy in clinical trials compared to real-world situations, it remains a valuable tool in the fight against tobacco addiction.

Convenience and Accessibility

Accessing smoking cessation treatment has never been more convenient with online platforms. Studies show that internet-based interventions can be moderately more effective for quitting smoking compared to traditional methods.

With just a few clicks, you can receive personalized treatment plans and support from the comfort of your home or office. Online treatment eliminates the need for time-consuming appointments and allows you to get help on your own schedule.
Online smoking cessation programs also offer greater accessibility, particularly for college students and those living in remote areas. You can connect with healthcare professionals and supportive online communities without the barriers of distance or transportation.

Internet-based tobacco treatment interventions have been proven effective through various recruitment methods, including web-based, press releases, and television advertisements. By choosing an online smoking cessation program, you’ll have access to tailored counseling and resources that can significantly increase your chances of quitting for good.

Avoiding exposure to other illnesses

One of the significant advantages of seeking smoking cessation treatment online is avoiding exposure to other illnesses. Traditional in-person visits to clinics or hospitals can put you at risk of contracting infectious diseases, especially during flu season or outbreaks.

MyInstantMD’s telehealth platform eliminates this risk by providing treatment from the comfort and safety of your own home. You can access the smoking cessation program without worrying about potential health hazards in waiting rooms or public transportation.
