I had smoking habit daily I use to smoke ten cigarettes how can I conrol this?

Several ideas: I've sent this to the addiction medicine folks, and at this level you can probably simply resolve to quit and be successful. But why not say, right now, "i am not going to give any more of my money to the rotten tobacco company ceo's that got me addicted in order to ruin my health in the first place.". ...Read more

I´m 22 years old and I´ve smoked cigarettes for about a month and a half, then stopped for good. 1-5 but not daily. How high is the risk of cancer?

I´m 22 years old and I´ve smoked cigarettes for about a month and a half, then stopped for good. 1-5 but not daily. How high is the risk of cancer?

Not from smoking: You cut your risk by stopping before significant use. Yea! Your risk of cancer now depends on diet, heredity and the place you live, exposure to environmental carcinogens and sheer luck. You have eliminated one risk --good for you! Now decrease fat and protein to non-US levels and you will decrease your risk even more. Of course HIV is associated with cancer, so practice safe sex along the way. ...Read more

I just started erections problems. I smoke 7 cigarettes daily. No excercise no walk. Having sugar level of near 220 for the last 6 months. 1glucophage?

Question?: What is your question? Sounds like you have lots of room for improvement. Stop smoking, start exercising, stop eating sugar, get your blood sugar under control - and maybe you will stop having erectile problems. You are way too young at 42 to have ed. Start getting healthy now! it's not too late! ...Read more

Hi doctor,

Thanks?

Hard to be sure: because it depends on HOW MUCH weed you smoked and HOW POTENT it was. The use of very high potency marijuana for 3 weeks, if you were smoking it all day every day, can cause positive urine tests for literally a month or even longer (longest I have seen is 3 months). Hair testing can detect it back for 6 months or longer, depending on hair length and type. Low level use lasts for 3-7 days. ...Read more

I occasionally smoked cigarettes and hookah for a year at 15, did i permanently cause damage? I am terrified.

I  occasionally smoked cigarettes and hookah for a year at 15, did i  permanently cause damage? I  am terrified.

Permanent? No!: Some? Yes. But the longer you stay away from cigarettes, cigars, hookah, 2nd hand smoke, other illicit drugs etc, the better off you'll be. Some studies suggest that quitting at 80yo can be helpful (although clearly not as helpful as if quit at 15yo). Best is to never smoke at all but we can't go backwards in time. But since that was 5yrs ago, time to stop worrying ; being terrified. Time to live. ...Read more

If i smoked less than 100 cigarettes and did hookah about ten times in my entire life, did i do permanent damage to myself?

If i smoked less than 100 cigarettes and did hookah about ten times in my entire life, did i  do permanent damage to myself?

Unlikely: It is good that you quit before real damage could accumulate. The short term exposure you have had hopefully was unpleasant but your body can compensate for that. It is chronic smokers who get in trouble. ...Read more

I want to reduce smoking. I usually smoke 15-25 cigarettes a day. I want to know whether electronic cigarettes will help me reducing or not?

I want to reduce smoking. I usually smoke 15-25 cigarettes a day. I want to know whether electronic cigarettes will help me reducing or not?

Maybe: Electronic cigarettes simply give you nicotine--which is really the only thing in a "real" cigarette that a person wants or craves. Unfortunately, a real cigarette also contains cancer-causing chemicals. Thus, using an electronic cigarette is a better option. Although never proven to be"safer, " it would seem logical that it would be. I encourage my patients to use anything they can to quit! ...Read more
