Your time to give up smoking is now
In the midst of this current Coronavirus pandemic, stress, isolation and anxiety may find you reaching for the cigarettes a little more frequently than usual. But, there really never has been a better time to give up smoking.
We currently find ourselves in truly strange times. The Coronavirus pandemic is moving through the UK, and indeed the entire world, and all our lives and daily routines have been affected, and in some cases completely turned upside down.
In such stressful times, it would seem natural to reach for anything that makes the daily existence a little more bearable, and this could mean that you are smoking a little more than you do usually. However, as COVID-19 is a disease that affects the lungs, there really never has been a better time to quit. Indeed, the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (CEBM) recently stated that smoking not only increases the risk of acquiring an acute respiratory infection (ARI) such as COVID-19, but also increases its severity. Even second-hand smoke can increase the risks of ARIs in young people. However, even after years of smoking, quitting during an ARI reduces the risk of serious complications such as bronchitis and pneumonia. The World Health Organisation (WHO) also say that people who stop smoking are less likely to become infected with COVID-19 as it reduces their hand-to-mouth transmission.
Even in the midst of all the current scientific evidence and advice telling you to give up smoking, you may still feel like now is far too stressful a time to think about quitting. If this is the case, Acetium could give you just the help you need. With Acetium, you simply let a lozenge dissolve in your mouth every time you smoke a cigarette. So you don’t have to worry about changing your routine, ignoring your cravings or denying yourself a treat, and from day 1 Acetium will get to work by protecting you from 90% of the carcinogenic acetaldehyde found in cigarette smoke, and also start to alter the levels of pleasure associated with smoking, until you feel like you really don’t want to do it anymore. As so many routines and habits have had to change in recent times, it is reassuring to know that Acetium can gently work alongside your normal life, gradually helping you on the way to a healthier, smoke-free future.
Nicotine is a highly addictive substance, therefore smokers experience continual withdrawal symptoms when their blood nicotine levels drop too low, and this then triggers the urge for the next cigarette. So although smoking can be thought of as stress relief in the short term, stress levels of smokers usually drop considerably once they have quit as they no longer experience the withdrawal/craving cycle. The CEBM also states that there is evidence that quitting smoking can lead to improvements in mental health. Unlike many other quitting aides, Acetium is an innovative, nicotine-free lozenge which has been specifically designed to reduce nicotine step by step, until you are ready to quit completely.
This is a challenging time for us all, but also one in which self-care and keeping healthy should be paramount.
