Hi,

Yes you can be treated with that habit but the first and foremost is that he should have a will power of his own for that. If you want to quit the habit and if you do not have that will power then you may attend some counselling sessions by a psychiatrist or you should have a look at the following questions and try to answer them when alone

1. Why I am wasting money for some material.
2. What does smoking give me except for lung cancer or lung diseases ?
3. We are paying money for making our self sick and to bring disease?
4. Eventually we will be paying more money for the treatment for these disease.
5. The treatment for the disease is more than just simple medicines and they might involve chemotherapy which is very expensive and very painful and life threatening also which is difficult to take.

Ways by which you can try and quit smoking is
1)Self belief is first and foremost by knowing about the disadvantage it is going to give you in over the years
2)Keeping yourself busy in work or something,involve in some sports activity
3Chewing gum (may be nicotine chewing gum may also be prescribed for a few days,to be prescribed by a specialist
4)You will need a lot of motivation from your family
5)Limit your intake of caffeine
6)Do early morning yoga
7)Try to save just the money saved by smoking and at the end of the year yo will notice to have saved a lot of money

Withdrawal symptoms may include,if he has had tobacco for a long time are

1)Anger, frustration,irritability,nervousness
2)Anxiety.
3)Depression.
4)Weight gain
You will need a lot of love and care and support from home if you really want to quit,anger won't do that.

Patient asked followup Question: 10 years ago

U got me wrong...that was not my ques..I already quit smoking..my concern is how to get back my original skin complexion currnently it became totally black because of smoking...is it possible?

Hi,

Usually smoking can result in loosening of the texture or shine of the skin but will not cause the skin to change its color.
Has the skin totally changed its color or are there some black spots over your skin.Now if skin has totally changed its color then it should be some hormonal cause to it,or some kind of vitamin deficiency but if there are just some black spots then it could be serious
I will advice you to get a few tests like tests for liver,lipids tests and kidney function tests.
Is there any kind of swelling over you body which has recently come over your body ?
I will also advice you to have once daily multivitamin,so that if you have some kind of vitamin deficiency then it should resolved.

Patient asked followup Question: 10 years ago

Only my face has turned black..i do not have any black spots on my face..and there is no swelling on any part of my body..im a soft. developer and i do not go outside so this is not because of sun exposure..im sure its because of smoking because the day i started smoking my complexion started effected and now it became worse...and my hair also started falling from the that day and now i left with only few hairs on my head..i dont know what to do...

Hi,

Look if you think it is simply because of smoking then, have plenty of water and have multivitamin tablets and avoid any sun exposure and you may also use sunscreen lotion.
It must have occurred after having smoked for years,so it just can't be back within a few days it will take a lot of time depending from month to a year.
You can be prescribed hair oil for hair growth but that can be prescribed only after examination.
If you think the changes in your face has occurred suddenly by smoking for a few days or may be months,then it is difficult that it occurs in so less time,however it can occur but even then you need an examination why did it occur so fast.

I was suffering from blood in my stool from long time until i consulted a doc and he said that i have fissure. I got it cured through ointments and having drinking fibre. However, from last few monts I have started suffering from incomplete evacuation. All the time my stomach is bloated up and I dont feel like eating anything. I have increased my water intake and also have started eating fibre fruits to a great extent but nothing is helping me. Howsoever hard I try, I am not able to evacuate completely. I go to washroom at least 5 times a day but still i feel full all the time. Sometimes I get black stool and sometimes its normal. My stool is not hard at all. I feel uneasy all the time. I stay in tension all the time due to this. Please suggest me a cure to this.

Hi, Since you have had a fissure, chances of recurrence are high. Constipation is just one of the causes of fissure. There can be other causes, for example, there can be a tear in anal canal, or there may be a foreign body present in body, or it can happen during normal labor. Usually the fissure has bright red blood and not dark coloured blood. Since you have dark, it indicates that blood is coming from above in alimentary tract, which might be due to inflammatory bowel disease, irritabl ...

I had laparascopic surgery for endometriosis over 3 years ago. What I thought was two black dots from old stitches in my belly button, turned out to be both scabs.
