There has been speculation in the media today that e-cigarettes may be prescribed on the NHS in England to help people stop smoking tobacco products. Whilst, e-cigarettes are less harmful than cigarettes, they do include a number of chemicals that are harmful to health which can damage the lungs.
Indeed, there is increasing evidence that using e-cigarettes is linked to a condition called popcorn lung. This is a disease that affects the smaller airways in your lungs. These airways get scarred and become narrower, leading to a shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing. This makes it harder for the lungs to get the air they need.
Rather than substitute one harmful product for a less harmful product, it is much better for your health to give up these products altogether and also financially too. There is research evidence that hypnotherapy is the most effective method to stop smoking. The University of Iowa examined over 600 studies which looked at methods of stopping smoking and found that hypnotherapy was the most effective.
So why wait. Book a hypnotherapy session in Edinburgh to stop smoking. It may be one of the best decisions you ever make and get on with the rest of your life without nicotine.
