Q & A

Cigarettes contain tobacco which has a drug named nicotine. This drug gets into the bloodstream and stimulates the brain. Gradually, you get strongly addicted to nicotine. Hence, quitting smoking becomes really difficult. Smoking is injurious to health. It is the leading PREVENTABLE cause of death worldwide. Tobacco cessation or quitting smoking reduces the risk of life from many tobacco-related diseases.

Champix is used as a smoking cessation aid. It is also known as varenicline tablet. Champix helps adults to stop smoking. It contains a substance ‘varenicline’. Champix reduces the effect of nicotine on your body. It minimizes the addiction and enjoyment factor associated with smoking. It also takes care of the craving and withdrawal symptoms when you stop smoking. However, this medicine cannot work alone. Your determination to quit the habit will always be required.

I have smoked for a very long time, what’s the point quitting now the damage is done?

Even if you have smoked all your life, there are always positive benefits to be gained from quitting. The rewards from quitting will begin as soon as you have your last cigarette, and the longer you go without smoking, the more benefits you’ll experience. Your health, your self-esteem, and your everyday life will improve dramatically both short-term and long-term. There is no age when you should give up trying to quit; any age is the right age to quit.

I previously tried to quit but didn’t succeed. What can I do?

On average, it’ll take a person at least 2 or 3 serious attempts before they successfully quit. If you have previously tried and failed, you should recollect past attempt(s) and think about what went right and what went wrong. Reuse any successful strategies and dump anything that held you back.

How do I handle cravings?

Sudden cravings tend to only last a few minutes at a time. When they occur, visualise why it is you want to quit and why it’s crucial that you succeed this time around. Exercise is one of the best methods of keeping your mind busy. Utilising these methods alongside taking medicine be very effective in beating cravings.

I enjoy smoking when I drink. Will I have to give up both to successfully quit?

If this is the case, it would be strongly advised that you refrain from drinking alcohol for at least the first 3 months after stopping smoking. Failure to do so will lower your chances at quitting successfully.
