Best part is recognizing the early signs of harms of tobacco and quitting right away! If these early signs are missed, at least one should not oversee the late signs of tobacco harms and should quit in this stage. They are the warning signals to stop – either refrain from in-taking tobacco or bear the fatal consequences!
But it is really pathetic that patients visit the doctor when complications of tobacco use are very much evident and make the patient sick. In the third stage of tobacco use, it is too late and the diseases have started to occur in the body. There are many fatal problems experienced where seeing a specialist becomes compulsory! Treatment of the complications takes the priority. Quitting at this stage will help and will take longer time but the damage is already done!
In this stage, the patient will have developed serious illness of one or the other forms given below. They will need both a specialist and cessation expert to cure their disease and to help them quit their habit of tobacco respectively. At this stage the patient will lose their finances at a very heavy and rapid rate that could have been saved had they quit in time! These diseases are:
- Heart attack
- Cancer of colorectal, liver, lung, bladder, cervix, oesophagus, kidney, larynx, pancreas, stomach, oral, and pharynx; acute myeloid leukaemia
- Oral Lesions
- Cardio Vascular Diseases
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
- Eye Diseases
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Bone Fractures and lower bone density
- Chronic kidney diseases
- Peripheral Vascular Diseases – Bergers disease
Most of the people in India repent for not quitting early only when met with life threatening diseases. With this blogs, I intent to spread this word that self-awareness and detection at the right time will help the tobacco user to seek expert’s help immediately so that the losses are not heavy in the future. The finances can be saved, the life expectancy can improve; one can enjoy more with their family and children and of course have a better healthy life!
One should take care of their health and always advice the younger generation “TO BE SMART AND DO NOT START”. Quitting at the nascent stage will not cause devastating and heavy harms as it does in the later stages.
Let us pledge to quit tobacco before any complications arise.
