Smokers encouraged to focus on health benefits of quitting during Ramadan

May 21, 2017 |

Hamad Medical Corporation’s (HMC) Smoking Cessation Clinic is encouraging tobacco smokers to use the month of Ramadan as an opportunity to quit the habit and focus on living a healthier lifestyle.

“Cigarette smoke contains more than 45 poisonous chemicals that can cause cancer. Exercising, drinking plenty of water after Iftar and spending less time socializing with friends and family members who smoke can help decrease the urge to smoke,” said Dr. Ahmad Al Mulla, Head of the Smoking Cessation Clinic.

He said the Smoking Cessation Clinic provides patients with ways of replacing their nicotine consumption and coping with withdrawal symptoms, supporting patients throughout the process of quitting. Experts suggest the most effective way to quit smoking is to make small lifestyle changes to help resist the temptation. Making a list of reasons to quit can serve as a reminder of the reasons behind the decision to give up smoking and avoiding places such as shisha cafes and other areas frequented by smokers will also help.

Dr. Al Mulla advised those wishing to quit smoking to also avoid inhaling second-hand smoke, which can be as bad as smoking itself. Second-hand smoke, which is responsible for thousands of heart disease-related deaths every year, contains more than 7,000 chemicals. Second-hand smoke causes numerous health problems in infants and children, including more frequent and severe asthma attacks, respiratory infections, ear infections, and sudden infant death syndrome.
