How can I quit smoking?
Q: I am a 31 years old male. I smoke 7 - 8 cigarettes a day. Can this affect the health of my 5 years old son? I do smoke in my room. Can second hand smoke cause cancer? How can I quit smoking?
A:Smoking is a health hazard for you and for people around you. There are ways to stop smoking.
- Chantix 0.5 mg twice a day x 7 days then 1 mg twice a day x 2 months. You can take this while you are smoking and it makes you not want to smoke any more.
- Also zyban, nicotrol inhaler, gum, nicotine patch are helpful. For some one who likes the ritual of smoking chantix or nicotrol inhaler are the best options.
- Talk to your doctor and see what works best for you.
