Can Stop Smoking Cigarettes And Marijuana Give You Shortness Of Breath
Started a non smoking cessation and decided to go on vapour ecigarrettes. Will my shortness of breath from smoking stop and chest tightness?
Everyone is: different but setting target date to stop and then stopping completely on that day can be effective. Learning some self-hypnosis can support this plan of action. Chewing gum or eating mints is useful, especially at high risk times like coffee breaks. Not smoking can make things better but you need to see doctor. Better off w/out e-cigs. Peace & health. ...Read more

No: They aren't safe either.Get a more detailed answer ›
Smoker with anxiety symptoms. Cough mucus short of breath. Heard quitting causes shortness of breath. I ALREADY can't breathe. Nervous to try.
You can quit: There's a rarely mentioned fact I know: The smoking breath pattern - In, Hold, Exhale (fully, slowly) thru lips - is very, very good for you. That pattern alone can lower BP (for awhile) and makes you feel really good. When smokers quit, they lose this advantage. Some of the distress is due to this. You can win by continuing to do the breath pattern w/out the cigarette! 'Smoke' w/out cigarettes! ...Read more
What are the side effects of smoking weed and cigarettes but taking a break from weed and start to smoke cigarettes more ?
Respiratory/heart: Neither is good to use, so taking "a break" from both would have the side effect of better health. Smoking tobacco or weed creates the same dilemma for lung health -inhaling partially combusted botanical material laced with chemicals. Equally, cardiovascular health is compromised by using either. Infections occur more frequently in smokers too. So quit both & try not to rationalize their use. ...Read more
Is there something that i can take for shortness of breath. I'm trying to stop smoking trying to stop smoking on my own
See a doctor: If you haven't done serious damage already (like chronic bronchitis and emphysema), things will improve within a few weeks to a few months. If more damage is done, recovery will be slower and will not be complete. But it won't get worse, which is very important. If you are out of condition, you can help yourself with a gradual aerobic exercise program, which will improve your sob and fitness. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: For some people this is more or less noticeable, but it is very common. It may be your bodies way of telling you not to smoke. Since breathing is necessary for life - you might want to listen. Since proper breathing is the best way to manage your mind-body-soul connection - you'd be wise too. Also, if other things also affect your breathing, have a doctor check it out with you. In-hold-full exhale. ...Read more
Will i have smoking withdrawal symptoms if i use nicotine gums? i am planning to quit smoking with temporary use of nicotine gums
Way to go...: The gum you're looking to use to help you quit smoking is very effective. It will help your body quit because it does supply the nicotine your body got used to from cigarettes. The biggest problem you will face is what to do with your hands. Smoking is a very manual habit. I euggest even chewing on a straw. Good kuck and congrats when you kick the habit. ...Read more
Nicotine effects: Our body becomes used to nicotine and feels the loss when you quit. (Addiction) The physical w/drawal only lasts ~1 week - but the psychological habit can be very long lasting. There are mental/mood/energy issues and appetite/sleep changes. None are what most folk like. But they only last awhile unless we allow our psychological neediness to take over. Nicotine is an active/interactive substance. ...Read more

Not really: One of the harmful effects of smoking is increasing risk of heart disease, making it more likely for your heart blood vessels to be blocked/atherosclerosis. Running may help prevent this, but not completely. The effects of smoking, on balance, would be worse. PLUS, there are all the lung effects (emphysema, cancer) that running would have no preventive effect on. No smoking is best. Good wishes:) ...Read more
What are the side affects if you smoke weed & cigarettes then take a break from smoking weed but start to smoke more cigarettes than weed ?
Not good: None are good options.Marijuana smoke contains bronchial irritants. Inhalation with marijuana is more prolonged & deeper than with tobacco. Higher combustion temperatures are reached because it is smoked to a shorter butt. This leads to a carboxyhemoglobin concentration that is 5 times higher than tobacco. 3 times more tar is inhaled. ...Read more
Varies: It depends on a lot of things. How long you have been smoking, whether there is a lot of acute inflammation or infection, what the exact factors are in the shortness of breath, are all factors that could influence the result. Unless there has been a lot of irreversible damage to the lungs, you should eventually note improvement. For sure, stopping smoking is your best chance to improve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ciggarette smoke can cause wrinkles. Will kissing a smoker and having those chemicals to be swallowed give me wrinkles ?

The nicotine and tar by products are on their lips and saliva that you will be exposed to.The dander and allergens on their hair & clothes you will also share.The cigarette smoking causes wrinkles from the lack of microcirculation to the skin from smoking.So temporary exposure is not as bad as permanent exposure or chain smoking, which is very bad! ...Read more
