A Healthy Message from Northeastern Health System-Tahlequah Chief of Staff Dr. Brent Rotton.

Tobacco use is the major single cause of cancer deaths in the United States. More Americans die from lung cancer than breast, prostate and colon cancer. Almost 90% of lung cancers are smoking related. That is why the American Cancer Society sponsors the Great American Smokeout every year on the Thursday before Thanksgiving.

The idea behind the Great American Smokeout is to encourage smokers to commit to quit cigarettes for 24 hours, said Dr. Rotton. Of course, we would like those 24 hours to be just the start of a lifetime of smoke-free days. If you’re a smoker, you know that nicotine can be as addictive as heroin or cocaine. And young people who smoke become addicted even faster than adults.

The benefits of quitting are significant:

 

People who quit live longer than people who continue to smoke.

Smokers who quit before age 50 have half the risk of lying in the next 15 years compared to those who continue to smoke.

Quitting smoking substantially decreases the risk of cancer of the lung, larynx, pharynx, esophagus, mouth, pancreas, bladder and cervix.

Quitting also reduces the risks for other major diseases including heart disease and lung diseases.

Women who stop smoking before becoming pregnant or during the first trimester of pregnancy reduce the risk of miscarriage or of having a low birth-weight baby to the level of women who have never smoked.

The National Cancer Institute provided these tips for anyone who wants to kick the cigarette habit for good:

Prepare Yourself for Quitting

Decide that you want to quit. List all the reasons you want to quit.

Begin to condition yourself physically. Start a modest exercise program, drink more fluids, get plenty of rest.

Set a target date to quit. Perhaps the Great American Smokeout (November 20th) Know What to Expect

Have realistic expectations. Quitting isn’t easy, but it is impossible. Every year more than three million Americans quit. Use of the nicotine patch or gum basically doubles your chances of successfully quitting.

Understand that withdrawal symptoms are temporary. They usually last only 1-2 weeks.

Be aware that more relapses occur during the first week when withdrawal symptoms are the strongest. If you relapse, don’t give up. Try again. Most successful ex-smokers had to make several attempts before they quit for good.
