Nicotine replacement therapy(NRT) is a non tobacco form, low-dose and safe nicotine preparation to replace nicotine in tobacco. The nicotine it provides is less than the income from smoking, but it is enough to reduce the symptoms of withdrawal. After using it for a period of time, the nicotine intake of smokers is gradually reduced to the lowest, so as to overcome the habit of smoking and achieve the goal of quitting smoking successfully.
How does nicotine replacement therapy work?
Nicotine replacement therapy is an effective “smoking cessation method” recommended by who. It is because nicotine replacement therapy can not only meet the smoking addiction and gradually reduce the dosage, but also avoid the harm to human body caused by tar, carbon monoxide and other toxic and harmful substances in tobacco. It is an effective and safe way, so it will be recognized internationally, It also shows that tar and carbon monoxide are more harmful to human body than nicotine.
What is the ratio of cigarettes to cigarette oil? How many cigarettes is 1ml of cigarette oil equivalent to?
Nicotine is not the real “culprit” of cancer, but it can not be abused because e-cigarettes have no tar and carbon monoxide. There have been many cases of poisoning caused by nicotine abuse abroad, so we should understand the conversion between cigarette oil concentration and cigarette according to our own actual situation.
If the nicotine content of each cigarette you smoke is 1.1 (nicotine content = nicotine content, which will be marked on the left side of the cigarette box), it is as follows:
one point one × 20 sticks = 22 mg. The average person consumes about 2 ~ 4 ml of tobacco oil a day. If two ml a day, it is recommended to choose 11 mg. According to the above statement, you can choose how many milliliters you smoke?
At present, the amount of nicotine in the smoke of domestic cigarettes, that is, the content of nicotine in the smoke, is 1.1mg per cigarette. If the concentration of tobacco oil is 6mg / ml, one milliliter of tobacco oil is about equal to the nicotine content of five cigarettes. If the concentration of tobacco oil is 3mg / ml, one milliliter of tobacco oil is about equivalent to the nicotine content of three cigarettes.
The vast majority of people use Refillable vape pod kits or disposable electronic vape, and the consumption of cigarette oil is about 3-5ml per day. According to the concentration of 6mg, even if it is equivalent to the nicotine content of 16-27 cigarettes per day. Moreover, many big smoke players consume more cigarette oil every day. According to the average concentration of 15ml and 3mg per day, it is equivalent to the nicotine content of 41 cigarettes.
For a normal person, if he inhales so many cigarettes every day, his body will be very uncomfortable and cause great harm to his health, because in addition to nicotine, cigarettes also contain toxic substances such as tar and carbon monoxide. However, for e-cigarettes, the cigarette oil only contains nicotine, without tar and other substances in cigarettes, so such conversion has no practical significance.
However, we should not abuse electronic-cigarettes because of this. After all, excessive nicotine inhalation will also cause poisoning, so please be moderate. Once there are “dizziness”, “chest tightness”, “nausea” and other reactions in the process of using e-cigarettes, it means that nicotine intake is excessive. At this time, we should stop using e-cigarettes, ventilate, breathe fresh air and drink more water. If the symptoms are serious, you need to see a doctor in time.
In addition, be sure to keep the tobacco oil properly, because the whole bottle of tobacco oil contains a lot of nicotine. Taking 30ml and 6mg concentration as an example, a bottle of tobacco oil contains 180mg of nicotine. If swallowed by infants or pets, it will cause very serious consequences. And most of the flavor of tobacco oil is very sweet, similar to the taste of drinks and cakes. If it is not placed properly, it will be easily taken by mistake.
Getting the most from nicotine replacement therapy
Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) only deals with the physical dependence. It’s not meant to be the only thing you use to help you quit smoking. You’ll need other methods that help with the psychological (emotional and mental) part of tobacco, such as a quit program. Use these support systems during treatment with NRT and for at least a few months after you quit. Studies have shown that this approach – pairing NRT with a program that helps to change behavior – can improve your chances of quitting and staying quit compared to approaches that use only one method.
The best time to start NRT is when you first quit. Often people first try to quit tobacco on their own then decide to try NRT a day or more into quitting. This does not give you the greatest chance of success, but don’t let this discourage you. There are many options for quitting and staying quit. Just remember that it often takes many tries.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the NRT products discussed here as effective aids for helping people quit smoking. None of these products has been FDA-approved specifically to help people quit smokeless tobacco. Still, studies are being done, and some have shown the lozenge form may help.
