How to Quit Tobacco

Educate Yourself
The first step to quitting smoking, vaping and using tobacco is to understand the risks and health effects for you and your family.

Smoking is the most preventable cause of death in the U.S. It's linked to about one third of all deaths from heart disease and 90% of lung cancers.
Cigarettes, e-cigarettes and tobacco products contain many toxic chemicals, as do their smoke, vapor and liquids.
About half of U.S. children ages 3-11 are exposed to secondhand smoke and vapor.
Tobacco use and nicotine addiction is a growing crisis for teens and young adults.\You can be one of the millions of people who successfully quit every year.
Within 1 year after quitting, your risk of heart disease goes down by half.
Make a Plan to Quit
You’re more likely to quit tobacco for good if you prepare by creating a plan that fits your lifestyle.

Set a quit date within the next 7 days.
Choose a method: cold turkey or gradually.
Decide if you need help from a health care provider, nicotine replacement or medicine.
Prepare for your quit day by planning how to deal with cravings and urges.
Quit on your quit day.
Tips for Success
Deal with Urges: Whether physical or mental, learn your triggers and make a plan to address them. Avoid situations that make you want to smoke or use tobacco until you’re confident that you can handle them.
Get Active: Physical activity can help you manage the stress and cravings when quitting. You'll feel better, too. heart.org/MoveMore
Handle Stress: Learn other healthy ways to manage the stress of quitting. heart.org/BeWell
Get Support: A buddy system or support program can help you with some of the common struggles of quitting. 1-800-QuitNow
Stick with It: Quitting tobacco takes a lot of willpower. Reward yourself when you reach milestones and forgive yourself if you take a step backward. Get back on course as soon as possible to stay on track and kick the habit for good.

Teen’s Two-Pod A Day Juul Addiction Caused Massive Stroke, Lawsuit Says https://www.forbes.com/sites/kenrickcai/2019/07/18/teen-two-pod-a-day-juul-addiction-caused-massive-stroke-lawsuit-vaping-e-cigarettes/

What a good read!

For all of the people who constantly say “let the addict die”, this is for you. As a result of Narcan, I was given another opportunity to live. As a result of Narcan, I get to be a father today. As a result of Narcan, I have been able to place thousands of people into treatment over the past couple of years. As a result of Narcan, I have been able to carry a message of freedom to countless people. As a result of Narcan, I am able to help restore my community. As a result of Narcan, I am able to be a loving son. As a result of Narcan, I am able to thrive! The only thing that Narcan enables is breathing. Since when did we become so desensitized as a society, that we think it’s ok to let any person die. Cast this out and show the world that Narcan saves lives, and the life that it saves might just be the person that helps your loved one find hope.

HEPATITIS A PREVENTION

There are several strategies to prevent the spread of hepatitis A virus, discussed below. Hand washing is one of the most effective strategies for reducing transmission since the virus can live on a person's fingers for up to four hours.

Hand hygiene — Hand washing is an essential and effective way to prevent the spread of infection. Hands should ideally be wet with water and plain or antimicrobial soap and rubbed together for 15 to 30 seconds. Special attention should be paid to the fingernails, between the fingers, and the wrists. Hands should be rinsed thoroughly and dried with a single-use towel.

It is not clear if alcohol-based hand rubs are effective against hepatitis A virus. For this reason, food handlers, daycare providers, travelers, and anyone else who is at risk of transmitting or becoming infected with hepatitis A is advised to wash their hands with soap and water when possible. Alcohol-based hand rubs are a reasonable alternative if a sink is not available.

Hands should be cleaned after changing a diaper or touching any soiled item. They should also be washed before and after preparing food and eating, after going to the bathroom, and after handling garbage or dirty laundry.

Safe food preparation — Taking precautions when preparing foods can reduce the risk of becoming ill. The following precautions have been recommended by the Food Safety and Inspection Services and the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

●Do not drink raw (unpasteurized) milk or foods that contain unpasteurized milk.

●Wash raw fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating.

●Keep the refrigerator temperature at 40ºF (4.4ºC) or lower; the freezer at 0ºF (-17.8ºC) or lower.

●Use precooked, perishable, or ready-to-eat food as soon as possible.

●Keep raw meat, fish, and poultry separate from other food.

●Wash hands, knives, and cutting boards after handling uncooked food, including produce and raw meat, fish, or poultry.

●Thoroughly cook raw food from animal sources to a safe internal temperature: ground beef 160ºF (71ºC); chicken 170ºF (77ºC); turkey 180ºF (82ºC); pork 160ºF (71ºC).

●Cook chicken eggs thoroughly, until the yolk is firm.

●Refrigerate foods promptly. Never leave cooked foods at room temperature for more than two hours (one hour if the room temperature is above 90ºF/32ºC).

People who are preparing to travel to areas where hepatitis A is common should take precautions when eating and drinking to avoid becoming ill. If you are planning international travel, you can visit a travel medicine clinic to better understand your risk as well as what precautions you can take. Travel advice is discussed in more detail separately. (See "Patient education: General travel advice (Beyond the Basics)", section on 'Food and water precautions'.)

Hepatitis A vaccination — Available vaccines to prevent infection with hepatitis A virus include VAQTA and HAVRIX. Both are equally effective and protect nearly 100 percent of people who receive the recommended two doses for a lifetime. The initial dose of either vaccine usually provides adequate short-term protection, and the subsequent dose provides long-term protection. Thus, if a person does not have time to receive both doses before traveling, it is worth getting the first dose and then completing the second 6 to 12 months later.

The most common side effect of the hepatitis A virus vaccine is brief redness or discomfort at the injection site.

●Hep A vaccine is given in two doses, with the second dose given 6 to 18 months after the first.

If the second dose is not given within the recommended time frame, it can be given without restarting the series. A vaccination series started with one brand of vaccine may be completed with the same or the other brand of hepatitis A vaccine.

In the United States, hepatitis A vaccine is recommended for all children between 12 and 23 months of age. It is also recommended for children ages 2 to 18 who live in states or communities in which hepatitis A is common. (See "Patient education: Vaccines for infants and children age 0 to 6 years (Beyond the Basics)".)

The hepatitis A virus vaccine is also recommended for all at-risk individuals, including:

●Travelers to countries where hepatitis A virus is common; the vaccine can be given at any time before traveling.

•Babies 6 to 11 months who are travelling internationally should receive the vaccine; the travel-related dose should not be counted toward the routine two-dose series.

●Injection and noninjection illegal drug users.

●Men who have sex with men.

●People with chronic liver disease.

●People with blood clotting factor disorders.

●Anyone who is in close personal contact with a person who was adopted from a country in which hepatitis A is common during the first 60 days following arrival in the United States (eg, family members or caregivers).

●People who are in direct contact with others who have hepatitis A.

●People who are homeless.

The hepatitis A vaccine can be given to women during pregnancy, as it has not shown to be associated with an increased risk of problems. Women who are at risk for hepatitis A and are pregnant should talk with their health care provider about whether they should get the vaccine.

Casey County has an ongoing outbreak of Hepatitis A with 11 cases and climbing. Hepatitis A is a vaccine preventable disease. Symptoms include fever, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, jaundice, abdominal pain and diarrhea. During this Kentucky outbreak the risk factors for acquiring the infection are illicit drug use, homelessness and contact to a known case of hepatitis A. The LCDHD urges Casey County citizens, especially drug users, their friends and families, as well as food service workers and health care worker to get vaccinated.
