Everyone is aware of the hazardous effects of smoking. As a dentist, I am faced with this question frequently: " I want to quit smoking, but I can't. Please help me!" Sometimes I have a group of patients who are not ignorant of the serious debilitating effects of tobacco and are determined to quit smoking. They have even tried nicotine gums, tobacco cessation programs, e-cigarettes, but unfortunately, have lost the war against addiction. Nicotine develops the relaxation pathway in the brain and man gets addicted to the release of the happy hormone. Usually, I recommend my patients to a tobacco cessation centre. These institutions have custom programs designed for the specific needs of the patient. The doctors and dentists in this community may also have faced a similar situation. Please share your experiences.
