Nicotine dependence awareness: Symptoms of nicotine withdrawal

People across the globe need to be informed of the consequences attached to substance abuse in the language the can understand so that they can make an informed decision on their health management. And speaking to doctor Dalal Akoury MD, President, and founder of the AWAREmed health and wellness resource center, creating nicotine dependence awareness is important since the information about the symptoms of nicotine is essential in ensuring that timely action is taken in administering treatment for the affected patients. Some of the symptoms include:

  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Increased appetite or weight gain
  • Impatience
  • Hostility
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Depressed mood
  • Decreased heart rate
  • Anxiety

And that is motivation enough for you to consult with doctor Akoury for a quick solution today.

Nicotine addiction awareness: Smokeless tobacco

Currently, in most states, the law requires smokeless tobacco to carry warning labels and bans all smokeless tobacco advertising on radio and television. The new warning labels, to be rotated quarterly, are required for packages and advertisements with the labels reading WARNING: this product may cause mouth cancer, this product may cause gum disease and tooth loss and this product is not a safe alternative to cigarettes. These are used to discourage but that is not always the case because it has been established that even smokeless tobacco has a direct link to oral, pharyngeal and laryngeal cancer as well as cancer of the esophagus, gum disease, and tooth loss. The use of smokeless tobacco has been increasing, especially among America’s youth. Nicotine addiction is achieved by the use of smokeless tobacco and can lead to serious health consequences. Nicotine Cessation programs can assist individuals in stopping the use of nicotine-based products.

Finally, I am very disturbed by our governments the world over especially on certain known life threatening drugs. It is the naked truth that many drugs like tobacco and alcohol have serious effects on people’s lives and all the authorities are doing is attempting to frustrate their advertisements by indicating warnings like the ones discussed above and sometimes levy high taxes on such drugs all in an attempt to make them out of rich to their consumers. Is this the right thing to do? By making the drugs expensive for many, are our governments authenticating that it is okay for the rich who can afford to die from the effects of these drugs? Or are they saying that health of the poor people are more important than that of the rich like I said before I am wondering and if this concerns you too, then let’s pool together and make a difference in our communities by creating more awareness about the dangers of engaging in drug use?

Comparing the different modes of administration of tobacco into the body does not make it friendlier to human health.

As a matter of fact, smokeless tobacco hazards are real and risky to human health in all dimensions.

Smokeless tobacco hazards: Other health problems associated with smokeless tobacco

Leukoplakia in the mouth. This is mostly affecting that part of the mouth where the chew or dip normally rest. If you are wondering, leukoplakia is a gray/white patch in the mouth of smokeless tobacco users. This condition can become cancerous if not corrected in good time. Even though these scores as they are commonly known are painless, they can easily cause cancer if not treated. The best treatment for leukoplakia is to stop using tobacco.

Tobacco also causes bad breath, stained teeth, and weak gum tissues. Regular use of tobacco increases the infections associated with gum diseases, cavities, scratching, bad breath and even loss of bones around the teeth. The danger of this is not any one cup of tea as it can cause the patient to lose all their teeth.
