See below: Boredom may be a consequence of a brain damaged by addiction. Certain nerve tracts bring glutamate from our executive centers in the forebrain to the nucleus acumbens help maintain our focus and passion for complex activity. These tracts are damaged by dug use leaving thoughts of drug use as the only thoughts that still inspire passion in the addict. So we continue to obsess over drugs. ...Read more
I quite smoking 4 wks ago. Type 1 diabetic. Since a wk ago, both fasting & post meal blood sugar are high. Anything I can do to get BG back under control?
Adjust your insulin: And your diet. It is common when people quit smoking to have an increase in appetite, and that may be the primary cause. Smoking cessation can also increase anxiety temporarily and this can drive blood sugar up. Your primary care or endocrine specialist can tell you how to add short-acting insulins to reduce your blood sugar, and may need to adjust your long-acting insulins as well. Stay quit!! ...Read more
Not generally: I assume you are speaking of marijuana. The amount you can breathe in is not usually even enough to be detectable on drug testing, let alone cause a clinical effect. "contact" high is more related to being around people who act high - silly, giddy, laughing etc. If you were in a phone booth or car with windows up and many people smoking marijuana, it is remotely possible, but not likely. ...Read more
Time and stop: You essentially have a hangover and, perhaps, residual THC on board that is making you ill. Your liver and kidneys will clear the toxin (THC) from your system. In the same way drinking excessive alcohol will leave you feeling ragged the next day (and cocaine and opiates), too much THC will leave you ill. ...Read more

No: In general, smoking is not the cause of elevated liver enzymes. In your medical history I see you have a diagnosis of fatty liver. That is the likely cause of elevated liver enzymes. Other things to consider include infectious hepatitis, alcohol, toxins, tumors, and bile duct abnormalities. ...Read more
Tar, fungus, other: Assume you mean stains on fingers. It's from tar, a sticky toxic chemical in tobacco, or fungus of skin and nails, or a sign of lung disease caused yellow nail syndrome. Stains on teeth, clothes, furniture is from tar & chemicals in tobacco. When U.S. Stopped smoking on planes, airlines saved big $$$ in cleaning costs http://betobaccofree. Hhs.

Odds are tiny, BUT: There are things you can get if the cigarette has enough of the smoker's saliva on it. For one thing, oral herpesvirus infections, which can cause everything from cold sores to encephalitis, can be spread in this way. If you have oral ulcers or mouth sores, it would even be possible, but highly unlikely, to pick up hepatitis B, and even more unlikely to pick up HIV or hep C. ...Read more

The risk of these diseases starts decreasing within a year of stopping smoking. Lots of reasons to stop! ...Read more
Can't tell you how: But can suggest some things you can do to deal with it. Firstly and most simply, if you do not want to breathe in his second hand smoke, tell him that- not to smoke in your presence. If the smell of tobacco on clothes and in his mouth bothers you, tell him that too.

Might be gone in 30d: But the time you needed help was to STOP smoking (I assume you meant THC and not tch so you are talking about marijuana) long before now. There are dozens of products on the market that claim to help you detox from THC, but I am not aware that any of them help. Nor does drinking large amounts of liquids. I wish you were as concerned about dealing with the use of marijuana as getting caught. ...Read more
No: Very heavy use of marijuana, like very heavy use of tobacco, may increase the chance of bronchitis, which in some cases can lead to pneumonia, but even this would be very unusual. If you also smoke cigarettes, those are far more likely to open you up to lung infections than does marijuana. Consider pneumovax, h. Flu vaccine and influenza vaccines as well. ...Read more

It is one of the best ways to help prolong your life and health. ...Read more
Clean: You clean. Then you clean again. Every surface. If there is carpet, change to wood or tile or get new carpet. Paint. Having the duct work cleaned can help. Cigarette smoke permeates every surface. Cleaning with a variety of cleaners is helpful. Chlorox containing cleaners seem to help a lot. Some of the odor will eventually dissipate, but initially the job is huge due to the cleaning. ...Read more
