Electronic Cigarette Addiction
HLC has had a large numbers of clients that tried to quit smoking using electronic cigarettes, only to find themselves addicted to the electronic cigarette.
HLC’s quit smoking program addresses electronic cigarettes just as well as it works with cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. The e-cigarette contains nicotine, which is addictive and is being heavily advertised by big tobacco.
E-cigarettes were first invented in China in 2003, as many nations began imposing bans on smoking, and are aimed at giving the user a similar sensation to smoking a cigarette. FDA notified healthcare professionals and patients that a laboratory analysis of electronic cigarette samples has found that they contain carcinogens and toxic chemicals such as diethylene glycol, an ingredient used in antifreeze.
Smokeless Tobacco – Dip, Chew, Snuff, Snus
Smokeless tobacco may cause cancer of the mouth. Sugars that are in chewing tobacco can cause decay in exposed tooth roots. Chewing tobacco can cause your gums to recede.
The gums do not grow back. Leathery white patches and red sores are common in dippers and chewers and can turn into cancer. Recent research shows that spit tobacco use might also cause problems beyond the mouth. Some studies have shown that using spit tobacco may cause pancreatic cancer.
And scientists are also looking at the possibility that spit tobacco use might play a role in the development of cardiovascular disease—heart disease and stroke.
Dip and chew contain more nicotine than cigarettes. Chewing tobacco contains 28 cancer causing agents. Chewing tobacco IS NOT a good substitute for cigarette smoking.
