World No-Tobacco Day: Have you heard of Nicotine Replacement Therapy to Kick the Smoking Habit?

Nicotine is the primary addictive component of tobacco. When a person consumes tobacco, various parts of the body become accustomed to the presence of nicotine. When a person quits smoking, they also cease nicotine and will most likely experience withdrawal symptoms. This is due to the body’s need to adjust to not having nicotine.

Tobacco contains nicotine, which causes physical dependence. When a person tries to quit, this can result in unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Nicotine replacement treatment (NRT) provides nicotine in the form of gum, patches, sprays, inhalers, or lozenges but does not provide the other hazardous compounds found in tobacco. NRT can alleviate some of the physical withdrawal symptoms, allowing you to concentrate on the psychological (emotional) components of quitting.

Using NRT has been found in numerous trials to substantially double the chances of stopping smoking. It hasn’t been tested as thoroughly for quitting smokeless tobacco, although NRT lozenges may be beneficial.

People who are heavily dependent on nicotine might consider nicotine replacement treatment or medication therapy to assist them quit smoking.

Tobacco smoking is acknowledged to be one of the primary causes of cancer worldwide, in addition to having other negative health consequences. As a result, World No-Tobacco Day is observed on May 31 each year to raise awareness of the issue.

However, if you are addicted to this habit, you should not be concerned because quitting smoking is not impossible. So, here are a few suggestions for getting rid of this harmful habit.

What is quitting cold turkey..?

You must develop a compelling personal reason that will drive you to quit smoking. After you’ve decided on a cause, simply quit smoking cold turkey, which means don’t cut back on the number of cigarettes you smoke, but rather quit completely.

Once you have broken the cycle by stopping smoking, you must keep yourself continuously busy with something or other so that your brain has less chance to think about smoking.
When a person smokes, they are addicted not only to the nicotine, but also to the habit of always having something in their mouth. To combat this, consider eating fruits or chewing gum, which will keep your mouth and brain engaged.
The body requires a lot of water on a daily basis. When a person quits smoking, water aids in the removal of poisons from the body.

Drink more water

When you drink, it’s more difficult to stick to your no-smoking aim. Similarly, if you frequently smoke while drinking coffee, try switching to tea for a few weeks. Tobacco craving are generally linked to the places or situations where you smoked. As a result, recognise your triggers and work to avoid them.


Exercise has been shown to help with nicotine withdrawal effects and urges. It also improves your mood and helps you cope with stress and have more energy. So grab some fresh air and go for a jogging, or if that’s too much for you, take a stroll.

Many people try several times before they can finally quit smoking permanently. Don’t be dismayed if you do light up a cigarette in a weak moment. Instead, consider what caused your setback and start again.
