Dangers of Smoking Cigarettes
Cigarettes have been long known to cause health problems. Pregnant women are encouraged to quit smoking as soon as they find out that they are pregnant. Also, did you know that cigarettes can harm nearly every organ in the body?
You can develop cancer, gum disease, heart disease, lung disease, and more when you smoke cigarettes. If you quit nicotine, you can immediately begin to start experiencing a drop in the likelihood of you developing these diseases.
Dangers of Vaping
If you vape, you likely ignore the warning commercials you hear on TV. Vaping was intended to help smokers get away from cigarettes, but they have since become a habit picked up by kids. One of the biggest issues from vaping is that the long-term effects are not yet known. This is a relatively new product and anyone who uses a vape is essentially acting as a guinea pig to see what the long-term health effects are going to be.
There have been heavy metals found in vapes and vape products. NYS has gone to some legislative measures to help reduce the products that are assessable. Heavy metal in the lungs is not healthy.
Tips for Quitting
We encourage you to quit nicotine because you want to. We know that people often feel pressured by family members and loved ones to quit smoking. We know this can be a good motivator to finally quit and they can help hold you accountable. Make sure, though, that you are going to be putting in the work to quit. You are the one who has to do the work to quit nicotine.
We also strongly recommend getting professional help from our smoking cessation doctors. Having a team at home and in a professional setting gives you the best chance of successfully quitting. We can support you through this journey.
