Don’t Use Drugs to Quit Smoking
To some people’s way of thinking, the best way to quit using a drug like cigarettes is to temporarily replace it with a drug designed to help you quit the first drug. The problem with this strategy is that the smoking cessation drug has its own side effects, some of which could be more harmful than the cigarettes themselves.
A recent study found that one drug, “Varenicline shows a substantial, statistically significant increased risk of reported depression and suicidal/self-injurious behavior.” In fact, of the people studied who had experienced “suicidal/self-injurious behavior or depression,” 90% of them had taken Varenicline.
Anyone who smokes should quit. The health dangers are very real and well established. But how you quit matters. Instead of drugs, ask your doctor of chiropractic what you can do to help purge the toxins from your body and build up your health nutritionally.
