Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/23/2015 -- Smoking is a widespread epidemic already and is still penetrating the roots of a healthy lifestyle at an alarming rate. Currently, the world has approximately 1.1 to 1.3 billion tobacco users in the world and this figure is likely to reach a mark of 1.6 billion in the next two decades.

Tobacco kills. It contains over 4000 chemicals of which at least 250 are considered as fatally harmful for the human body. Every second, at least one person dies from a disease acquired due to tobacco intake. This means that at least 10 people die every minute effectively from tobacco. Also, over 20% of all deaths in the US are from tobacco.

But not only active tobacco users or smokers die it. It is estimated that at least 600,000 people die every year from passive smoking – inhaling air that is mixed with tobacco smoke.

Tobacco addiction can have shocking impacts on the development and poverty, especially in developing countries where nearly 30% of a typical tobacco-addict person is spent on tobacco, leaving fewer funds for health care, education and nutrition.

Smoking cessation and Nicotine De-addiction

A substance, really a drug, called nicotine is released in the blood stream as an effect of inhaling tobacco through cigarettes - smoking addiction is actually a person's addiction to this drug. A regular smoker, when level of nicotine in the blood drops, feels withdrawal symptoms such as restlessness, lack of concentration, dizziness, irritability, constipation, increased appetite or just a feeling of awfulness.

These symptoms generally occur after a few hours from having the last cigarette – if not relieved by another cigarette, the symptoms worsen. So, the regular activity of smoking is just another way of smokers to stay 'normal' and prevent withdrawal symptoms.

Smoking hazards are very obvious and are easily noticed by smokers themselves. So, every 3 out of 4 smokers wish they could stop smoking but, without help, very few succeed in doing this. The main reason why only self control won't let one leave smoking is because nicotine addiction is quite strong and difficult to break. This is where smoking cessation and nicotine de-addiction therapies help.

Smoking cessation is the medical term used for defining the various ways that can be employed to quit smoking through the use of medicines, drug therapies, counseling and use of nicotine replacement products.

E-cigarettes are tiny electronic devices just the similar size and design of a normal cigarette. These cigarettes work by heating the nicotine cartridge in the device whenever a user puffs at one end. The liquid contained in the nicotine cartridge is vaporized due to the heat and these vapors are directly inhaled by the user. The remaining vapors evaporate with no smoke exposure to anybody around. E-cigarettes generally do not use tobacco.

Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is a way through which nicotine is directly transported to the bloodstream without having to smoke. There are various products such as nicotine gums, tablets, patches, inhalers and sprays that can be easily brought from pharmacies and most of which are available on prescription from a pharmacist.

Some over-the-counter medicines such as Zyban (bupropion and Chantix/Champix (varenicline) that contain a specific dosage of nicotine are also prescribed for combating smoking addictions.

All these methods do only one thing – supply the body with a dose of nicotine that is enough to fight-off its craving. Though these products do not eliminate all cravings, they can be used instead of smoking to reduce the nicotine intake gradually and ease-off its addictive effects on human body.
