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

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

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

Probably not.: Addiction can start at any time, some people take a lot of a substance to become addicted some people take much smaller amounts to become addicted ,based on the little you have told us I think the chance of you being addicted to nicotine very very slim. ...Read more

Can I smoke cigarettes with spilled ketchup on them?

Can I smoke cigarettes with spilled ketchup on them?

Yes but why?: This is a good chance to stop smoking altogether. There is no extra risk if you douse your cigarette with condiments and the cigarette companies saturate the leaves with pleasant smelling additives to encourage the habit. ...Read more
