A look at smoking cessation and the hygienist Richmond

If you have ever tried to give up smoking cigarettes, then you may be aware of just how difficult smoking can be to step away from; this is because nicotine is one of the most addictive substances known to man. Another factor that makes giving up smoking so difficult is the fact it is often a social activity that many smokers take part in; how often have you stepped outside a bar to have a cigarette with your friends and carry on your conversation?

Still, you may be one of the many smokers who talk about wanting to break the habit of smoking, and you may have tried only to find yourself reaching for a cigarette packet after a few seemingly long days of not smoking. This can leave you feeling defeated by the habit you are trying to get away from and may lead you to give up on giving up; the truth is this happens to a lot of people who want to stop smoking.

The fact is that if you are going to succeed when trying to give up smoking, you will have to feel supported in your endeavour, and there is an action plan in place that can steer you towards your goal.

At Sheen Dental, our dental hygienist Richmond is here with solid help and advice to help patients who are trying to give up smoking and steer them towards achieving this goal. This may be the key to you successfully giving up cigarettes and deciding never to smoke again.

Guidance, encouragement, and support

Now is the time to stop feeling trapped by a habit that you want to break; instead, you should start the process of accessing the professional help and advice you need to make smoking something you used to take part in. Our hygienist Richmond is fully trained and qualified to help you take the positive steps that will set you on the road to being a former smoker.

You will receive all the advice, encouragement, and support you need to succeed and break a habit that may have seemed impossible to walk away from for a long time. If needed, an alternative source of nicotine can be arranged for you, commonly in the form of nicotine patches; this will help to slowly wean you away from the craving.

The benefits of stopping smoking

There are many health benefits to stopping smoking, from being able to breathe more easily to feeling like you have more energy, but we cannot forget the health benefits that will be felt within your mouth. Once you have successfully given up cigarettes, you will find that you can enjoy fresher-smelling breath; your tastebuds should start to recover and allow you to fully experience food again.
