Smoke on....

Smoking is one fine way to reach lung cancer. So many methods have been tried to reduce or avoid smoking addiction. The new drugs that have been developed by Pharmacy company are Chantix/ Champix (Varenicline) and Zyban. Chantix works by stimulating the dopamine release, the brain chemical that mediates pleasure. Chantix can reduce irritability and other withdrawal symptoms that people addicted to tobacco feel when they try to quit and make them to light up again. Nicotine replacement products (Zyban,patch, gum, lozenges) all work by prompting the release of low levels of dopamine. It blocks nicotine receptors in the brain that makes smoking less pleasurable.

They Sound promising, but when i try to look at the internet.. i just want to laugh when i read article from person that was failed to continue Champix programme. In 12 weeks Chantix clinical trial, 56% of those who took Chantix were not able to quit smoking. Well, i guess the most principal thing to do is having strong willingness to stop smoking. There are lots of technique, one of them is in this site. Psychological methods probably can do better than medical-chemical intervention. 

tips from me, non-smoker person for smoker addict:

KNOWING WHAT YOU WANT TO EXPECT...
BE POSITIVE (LOSE YOUR FAILURE THOUGHTS, BELIEVE YOURSELF)
