Deciding to quit smoking is the first step in leading a healthier life – but the process of quitting can be challenging.PHC Internal Medicine & Weight Management practitioners are available to help with that journey. The addictive chemical in cigarettes, nicotine, makes the process more difficult, but many medicines and therapies can help make the process more manageable. Our providers offer lifestyle counseling concurrent with other therapies to make the most effective plan for quitting. It can take anywhere between 6 to 12 weeks before the brain transitions back to the state of a non-smoker and for the nicotine receptors to return to normal. Smoking has been associated with many serious medical conditions – including death.
