Bronchitis - Why and How I Quit Smoking

Don't remember the day I started smoking, but I do remember why. My husband smoked. When we kissed, he tasted like a full ashtray smells. I started smoking so that that wouldn't bother me so much, but I knew better.

Soon, clothes with tiny circles burned into the fabric became the norm. I couldn't breathe easily if I walked further than out to my car. I couldn't play ball with my children; I didn't have the breath. Many times I decided to quit. And I would, for two or three hours. By the end of the second year, I had had three bouts of pneumonia. Chronic Bronchitis are basically interesting parts of our day-to-day life. It is only that sometimes, we are not aware of this fact!

Nicotine stained fingers, face, and teeth are just the beginning. Besides the offensive smell, there is the layer of nicotine that stains everything in the smoker's home:, furniture, walls, carpets, everything. On several different occasions, both my parents were extremely sick with illnesses directly attributable to smoking, eventually culminating in lung cancer for my dad. Cigarettes were so important to them, that they budgeted the smokes in with groceries. If money was tight, we ate beans and potatoes, but they never did without cigarettes. I promised myself in my teens that I would never smoke. I broke that promise sometime in the summer of 1981. Bronchitis came into being some time back. However, would you believe that there are some people who still don't know what a Bronchitis is?

Don't remember the day I started smoking, but I'll never forget the day I stopped. On June 2, 1986, I dumped the worst habit I have ever had. Was it worth it? You bet. I no longer have pneumonia every year. Though bronchitis still bothers me on occasion, and I have chronic asthma, most of the time I can breathe without trouble. Best of all, my husband quit, too, within a month of the date that I quit. We have had a smoke free home for more than 20 years, and we have both benefitted from it. Developing a basis for this composition on Chronic Bronchitis was a lengthy task. It took lots of patience and hard work to develop.

  • After gathering all the cigarettes I had, I went to the kitchen and carefully destroyed each one, then dropped it into the trash can.
  • By evening I was suffering, but I refused to buy more.
  • Later, I learned my brother-in-law had just quit smoking.
  • He told me to buy salted, roasted sunflower seeds in the shell.


"Suck the salt off and spit out the seeds," he said. "Salt cuts the craving for nicotine." It worked. For six weeks, I carried sunflower seeds around with me. Anytime I started to crave a cigarette, I popped four or five sunflower seeds in my mouth. The times I felt foolish for constantly having sunflower seeds in my mouth, I would just remember the new skirt I had thrown away. Don't misunderstand. Quitting cigarettes was the hardest thing I ever did, but I was more determined than I had ever been. It is of no use thinking that you know everything, when in reality, you don't know anything! It is only because we knew so much about Chronic Bronchitis that we got down to writing about it!

All Through High School, P.E

And health teachers preached the deleterious effects of tobacco smoke on the body. Television, newspapers, magazines, doctors, and the Surgeon General all reported that cigarette smoking caused cancer, emphysema, and many other health problems. I didn't need to hear or read their stories. Both my parents have smoked since their teens. I saw firsthand what smoking does to the smoker. Failure is the stepping stone to success. So if you do fail to understand this article on Bronchitis, don't fret. Read it again a few times, and you are sure to finally get its meaning. :)

Learning to Smoke Was Difficult for Me

I had so many reasons not to, that I really had to push to get it done. After years and years of second hand smoke exposure, my health began to deteriorate immediately. By the end of the first year, I had chronic bronchitis. Cigarettes became a crutch. If life was stressful, I smoked. If I was ill, I smoked. If everything was great, I smoked. My habit was so bad, I couldn't drive down the street or cook a meal without smoking. The first thing I did in the morning was light a cigarette. The last thing I did at night was put one out. After reading what was written here, don't you get the impression that you had actually heard about these points sometime back. Think back and think deeply about Bronchitis.

Was Terrified

If I had not wakened from the smell of burning fabric, I might have died, or at least been badly burned. The new skirt I was wearing had eight holes burned through it. The folds of fabric had protected my skin until I awoke. When I realized that I had risked my life, and ruined a brand new skirt, anger replaced the terror I felt--anger at myself. Revision is very important when writing or speaking about a topic. We had a lot of drafting to do to come to this final product on Chronic Bronchitis.

Vataja Cough is Dry and Hacking in Nature

There is little phlegm observed. Side symptoms are headache and pain in the chest. In pittaja cough, there is yellow sputum which may sometimes have streaks of blood in it. Other symptoms like fever, excessive thirst and burning sensation in the mouth and the pharynx are also felt. In kaphaja cough, there is a thick mucus discharge, which is slimy and white in color. This cough makes the whole body feel heavy. We consider that we have only touched the perimeter of information available on Asthma Bronchitis. There is still a lot more to be learnt!

Home Medications

- The pulp of the fruit of the belleric myroblan is mixed with long pepper, salt and honey. This is to be taken once a day. - Clove oil mixed with garlic and honey helps to eliminate spasmodic coughs which are produced in tuberculosis, asthma and bronchitis. This mixture must be taken every night before going to bed. ;)

Use Old Rice in the Diet

Wheat can also be used beneficially. - Do not consumer any fruits or vegetables that can cause excessive cooling of the body. Foods like cucumbers, green bananas, papayas, watermelons and oranges must be strictly avoided. Perhaps you may not have been interested in this passage on Asthma Bronchitis. In that case, please don't spread this feedback around!

Useful Herbs in the Treatment of Cough

- Bay Berry (Myrica nagi) The bay berry is very effective in curing throat congestions which causes the coughs. It can even cure coughs that are caused due to chronic bronchitis. Its bark is the effective part which is to be taken in the form of a powder.


Ayurveda, coughing is known as Kaasa roga. It is predominantly an effect of the vitiation of the vata dosha. But the pitta and the kapha doshas can also cause coughs. Based on the causative factor, there are five types of coughs ' vataja, pittaja, kaphaja, kshataja and kshayaja. :evil:

Betel (Piper betle) Betel leaves when crushed, made into paste with water and applied externally on the chest have amazing effects in the treatment of coughs. :idea:


Prepare a mixture of extract of tulsi (holy basil) leaves with ginger and honey. This is better than the above method for the treatment of coughs. This mixture must be taken if the cough is severe, and is caused due to some serious ailment such as tuberculosis, bronchitis, etc. :idea:

Prepare an Extract of Ginger

Sweeten this with honey. Take this in a teaspoonful quantity three to four times a day. There will be confirmed positive results. If there is the slightest possibility of you not getting to understand the matter that is written here on Chronic Bronchitis, we have some advice to be given. Use a dictionary!

Fennel seeds are effective in the treatment of cough. These must be taken along with figs for better results. ( Ayurvedic Treatment for Cough - Ayurvedic doctors prescribe slightly different kinds of medicines depending on which type of cough is observed. a) If the cough is of vataja type, then kanakasava or kantakaryavaleha are prescribed. b) If the cough is of pittaja type, then sitopaladi choorna is preferred in conjunction with chandansava or vasarishta. Vasavaleha and matulungadi avaleha may also be prescribed. b) If the cough is of kaphaja type, then trikatu, triphala, guggulu and shilajit are the drugs of choice. This article serves as a representative for the meaning of Bronchitis in the library of knowledge. Let it represent knowledge well. :idea:

Make a Decoction of Licorice in Honey

Consume this decoction so that it makes good contact with the inner lining of the throat. This will relieve cough and the feeling of irritation in the throat. Slang is one thing that has not been included in this composition on Tuberculosis Bronchitis. It is because slang only induces bad English, and loses the value of English. :roll:

Henna (Lawsonia inermis) Henna is a definite remedy for sore throat and the related cough problems. ( Dietary Treatments for Cough - Cold foods must be avoided as these can aggravate the throat further. Water that is drunk normally also must be warmed a little before drinking. We needed lots of concentration while writing on Bronchitis as the matter we had collected was very specific and important.


Garlic (Allium sativum) Garlic is an excellent remedy for whooping cough. The syrup of two to three pieces of garlic must be taken two to three times a day in the case of whooping cough. If the symptoms still persist, or if it is a severe cough, then the dosage must be increased. Maintaining the value of Bronchitis was the main reason for writing this article. Only in this way will the future know more about Bronchitis.

Kshataja cough is vata vitiation to the extreme limit. There is dyspnoea and blood in the sputum. Kshayaja cough is a very serious kind of cough in which pus is observed in the sputum. Give yourself a momentary pause while reading what there is to read here on Tuberculosis Bronchitis. Use this pause to reflect on what you have so far written on Tuberculosis Bronchitis.

Butea (Butea monosperma) Butea leaves can treat congested and inflamed throats. They are effective in the treatment of coughs and sore throats. The leaves are boiled in water. This solution is used as a mouthwash to get the desired effects. Coughs caused due to septic and sore throats are treated in this manner. The information available on Asthma Bronchitis is infinite. There just seems to be so much to learn about, and to write about on Asthma Bronchitis.

Belleric Myroblan (Terminalia belerica) The fruit of the belleric myroblan has excellent curative powers in the treatment of coughs caused due to catarrh.

Mullein Tea

This is potent in soothing inflamed bronchial tubes. It would be best to sip plain mullein tea. To make a mixture, steep 1 to 2 teaspoons of the herb in 1 cup of boiling water for 10 minutes; strain. We have not actually resorted to roundabout means of getting our message on Symptoms Bronchitis through to you. All the matter here is genuine and to the point.

Other Helpful Recommendations To Help Ease Bronchitis To allow these herbs to fully work in relieving the irritating and distressing symptoms of bronchitis, the patient is advised to fully rest, and if possible do only moderate activity. The moderate physical activity keeps the secretions from settling into the lungs and leading to the development of pneumonia It is the normal style of writers to add additional information with the intention of lengthening the length of an article. However, we have provided a short and concise article with only required information on Bronchitis Herbal. :D.

These herbs are also effective in relieving bronchitis, as these have been analyzed to relieve t he underlying infection, swelling, and other symptoms such as cough: Echinacea (helps fight infection by stimulating immune system), Chinese skullcap, Ivy leaf and Plantain (used as an anti-inflammatory agent)

Bronchitis Caused - What are the Health Risks of Smoking?

Is so easy to become a statistic from smoking, just follow the usage instructions on the cigarette package, and this product can kill you. If you got that kind of warning about almost any other product you would never touch it. Why do so many intelligent people continue to smoke when they know what the risks are, or do they only know some of them? :idea:


Addition to this damage to the air sacs in the lungs, other tissues in the airways can become inflamed from cigarette smoke causing chronic bronchitis. Chronic bronchitis is a major cause of disability and death in the United States. The American Lung Association estimates that about 14 million Americans suffer from the disease. Chronic bronchitis is caused by inhaling bronchial irritants, especially cigarette smoke. There has been a gradual introduction to the world of Chronic Bronchitis projected in this article. We had done this so that the actual meaning of the article will sink within you. :evil:

Until recently the group of diseases that are thought to be primarily caused by smoking were all more prevalent in men than in women, however as the number of women smokers has increased, more women are being diagnosed with these diseases Our objective of this article on Emphysema Bronchitis was to arouse your interest in it. Bring back the acquired knowledge of Emphysema Bronchitis, and compare it with what we have printed here. :D.

Consider the Following, Before Your Light Up Your Next Cigarette;

Smoking is the number one cause of preventable death in the US and is the biggest cause of disease and death in most western countries. And the deaths from these diseases are not easy deaths, they can involve multiple organs or body systems, and there will usually be considerable pain and suffering. It is the leading cause of many forms of cancer and also heart disease and stroke. Many people are not aware of the added risks of heart disease and stroke, probably helped along by the elevated blood pressure that smoking also causes. Virtually every organ in the body is harmed by smoking and this is due to the thousands of chemicals (yes that is thousands) that are present in tobacco smoke. Medical professionals are not even sure of everything that smoking can damage. Many of those chemicals have been shown to cause cancer and many other health problems are caused or made worse due to smoking.

When the combination of these two illnesses strike a person it can be an extremely unpleasant situation where the shortage of breath becomes increasingly difficult and ultimately results in early death. Smoking also increases the problem of hypertension (high blood pressure) and along with that smokers are at more risk of having a heart attack than those people who don't smoke. We were a bit tentative when embarking on this project on Emphysema Bronchitis. However, using the grit and determination we have, we have produced some fine reading material on Emphysema Bronchitis.

The deterioration of the ability to breathe freely stops smokers from participating in sports at higher levels and ultimately this reduction in the ability to exercise results in poor health and for many people the sedentary life that they will tend to lead causes many more related health problems. :)

Emphysema is a Respiratory Disorder Characterized by Problems in Breathing

The disorder is caused by the enlargement of air sacs in the lungs, and this makes it difficult for the oxygen to get transported to the bloodstream. Emphysema is the most common cause of death from respiratory disease in the United States. It is generally caused the dreadful certainties of smoking. Obviously with a reduction in the circulation of oxygen throughout the body it will deteriorate at an increased rate. Emphysema sufferers have the constant feeling of slowly suffocating, because they can't breathe in enough oxygen to feel comfortable. Using the intuition I had on Bronchitis, I thought that writing this article would indeed be worth the trouble. Most of the relevant information on Bronchitis has been included here.


Each day of smoking is another step in the wrong direction where many parts of the body including the major organs are exposed to danger that can ultimately lead to death. Damage to your lungs gets worse with every cigarette, and will never rebound, unfortunately the risk of lung cancer which is by far the biggest killer of smokers, never goes completely away. Many ex-smokers still get and die from lung cancer, sometimes many years after they quit. An idle brain, is a devil's workshop they say. Using this ideology in mind, we ventured to write on Bronchitis, so that something productive would be achieved of our minds.


Acne There are many different forms of acne, and not few are linked to an unhealthy diet. Especially foods that are highly acidic tend to cause acne. Writing an article on Bronchitis Pneumonia was our foremost priority while thinking of a topic to write on. This is because Bronchitis information and prevention interesting parts of our lives, and are needed by us.

Low Energy and Chronic Fatigue

When having our cells constantly exposed to an overly acidic environment our biological terrain's oxygen level drops, leaving us tired and fatigued. This will allow parasites, fungus, bacteria, mold and viral infections to flourish and gain a hold throughout the body.

Allergies The toxins produced within an acidic, oxygen deprived environment as well as the absorption of undigested proteins is major cause of allergy conditions. When the digestive system is weakened, a wide range of allergic reactions can occur, e.g. food allergies, and the overall susceptibility to allergens is increased. Remember that it is very important to have a disciplined mode of writing when writing. This is because it is difficult to complete something started if there is no discipline in writing especially when writing on Bronchitis Infections.

Underweight Yeast and fungus produced in an acidic environment can feed on our nutrients and thus reduce the absorption of everything we eat by as much as 50%. Without protein the body can't produce enzymes, hormones or other chemical components necessary for cell energy and organ activity. This causes people to become very thin, which is not healthier than being overweight. As alkalizing and oxygenating takes place, the body naturally begins to seek its own ideal weight.

Is a lot of "hard work" for our body to neutralize and detoxify these acids before they can act as poisons in and around the cells, ultimately changing the environment of each cell. As soon as our internal environment becomes too acidic, the body starts to set up defense mechanisms in order to minimize the damage these acids can do to vital organs. Some of the body's reactions are: :oops:

Conclusion The only way of avoiding the over-acidification of the body and thus acidosis is to live according to an alkaline diet (by means of eating highly alkaline foods or taking alkaline green food dietary supplements) and drinking plenty of alkaline water. This will help getting rid of acid wastes and restore health body cells.

Balance-pH-Diet.com informs people about the over-acidification of the body due to fast paced and unhealthy lifestyles, which is the reason for many diseases and weight gain.

Studies have shown that an acidic, anaerobic (which is also the lack of oxygen) body environment encourages the breeding of fungus, mold, bacteria, and viruses. As a result, our inner biological terrain shifts from a healthy oxygenated, alkaline environment to an unhealthy acidic one (acidic pH scale).
