    HI from Australia i live in aged home

    HI everyone it'sNatasha Kellway here, i'm from Australia and living in aged home now because of my asthma problem. I join this forum to have some helps from you guys about quitting tobacco, actually i'm addicted to this, here i find some of the useful tips and suggestion for my health so i join this forum. Hope so we will have fun here and i find more useful things for me.

    I quit a 40 year heavy smoking habit with snus, I believe it is one of the safest and most effective substitutes. There are many here who share that conviction. I ruined my health smoking, but after 4 years with snus my lungs have recovered.
    Now for the hard truth.....Australia is not a good place for snus... the restrictions/taxes are insane. Your only option is friends who travel, or the unique services of Parrots, I suggest you study the list offered by him in the marketplace section. It remains a conundrum that smokeless tobacco is not readily available to those who need it the most.

      Hi Natasha, welcome to the forum.

      You say that you want to quit tobacco and I'm afraid, that's not something many here can help you with. Most of us are still addicted to tobacco, but we have replaced cigarettes with Snus. It's pretty easy to go from cigarettes to Snus and it will help with your asthma for sure, but going from snus to no tobacco at all isn't much easier than going from cigarettes to no tobacco at all.

          Welcome to the forum bro. In most cases it is not the nicotine that is the problem.......rather it is the delivery system.

          That said nicotine can work as a vascular restricter......which in turn may effect astima........however i would think the effects would be miniscule and would be far FAR less than smoking......(you are alredy getting nicotine......so that part sould not really be a large factor in switching to snus)......regardless......just watch body......it will tell youif things are better.....and if they are where you nned them to be.

          Anyway....keep us posted......and do check out Parrott's exchange post
          When it's my time to go, I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my uncle did....... Not screaming in terror like his passengers

            I have much the same history and tomorrow will be eight months since my last cig. My lungs are working so much better now. I am surprised though that I still have some very slight congestion and still have the occasional need to "clear" my lungs. How long till this is gone?

              took several years for me. But I just did a half hour of cardio and a half on the machines with no problems breathing. I am 57!

                    Took me about 10 months to get totally clear, I am only 34 but was on 40 a day most of the time so heavy heavy smoking!

                        A thong and a t-shirt with a 3 legged toffee crisp holding a mushroom and half a wasp.
