Now, when the time will come, you are trying. Definitely before your next birthday. At least before your daughter’s birthday. At least before your husband’s birthday.

But how about a little earlier, perhaps this month?

Mitch Tener, MD Pulmonology

Senior Supper

To learn more about chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, which is commonly known as COPD, it was decided to take part in the November 14 Senior Supper and Seminary at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Dr. Mitch Lawrence’s Tener Pulmonary Specialists will treat COPD: From a bad to a good one in a seminar. The dinner, which costs $5.50, is served before 5 pm. The nursery is free at 6 pm. Seat is limited, so please call LMH Connect Care at 785- 505-5800 or send an e-mail to to reserve your seat. Reservations close 24 hours in advance or if location is enabled.

At least for a day.

November 16 is the Great American Smokeout, which provides the perfect opportunity to quit smoking, the week before Thanksgiving. By moving away – or one day – you will take an important step. And every step a smoker takes to avoid being smoke free is above the other levels.

Just like Dr. Mitch Young of Lawrence Pulmonary Specialists says, “Studies show that the more you consult someone, the more success they will have in smoking cessation.”

Yes Dr. The tender and associates speak with their sick who smoke about smoking shutting up. And they do it again. And again.

No reason for smoking 1 Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which is commonly known as COPD, is also a chronic threatening disease due to various progressive lung problems, including emphysema and chronic bronchitis. These diseases are characterized by symptoms that include rheumatism, chronic cough and shortness of breath.

While smoking causes damage that can affect a person’s lungs, says Dr. There are many reasons to stop smoking. Each person’s lung function decreases with age, and smoking accelerates decline.

“Within a year of quitting smoking, the decline in the aging population returns to the usual raft of reasons” The subtext says.

Be aware that the lungs will never be the same for a smoker who has never smoked.

While cigarette smoking rates have dropped – from 42 per cent of Americans in 1965 to 15.1 per cent in 2015 – other types of smoking are on the rise, according to the American Cancer Society, which emphasizes that tobacco smoke is not “safe”.

If you want to participate in the Great American Smokeout, check out the Cancer Society website at, where you will find many useful information.

And if you’d like to support a friend or family member on your journey to becoming a former smoker, here’s some information from the American Cancer Society that may be helpful:

  • Honor those who quit in jail. This is their lifestyle change and challenge, not yours.
  • Ask a person whether they like you and regularly ask how they do it.
  • Let the person know that it’s OK to talk to you whenever you need to hear an encouraging message.
  • Help suitably get what you need, such as sucking hard candy, chew on straws, cut in fresh veggies and keep them in the refrigerator.
  • Spend time doing things quietly to keep up with your smoking – go to the movies, walk to the past or a bike ride together.
  • Try to see it on the smoker side – it usually feels like an old smoker writer’s friend who has been there ever since times were tough. It is difficult to give.
  • Make your house smoke free, meaning that no one can smoke in any part of the house. Remove all lighters and dishes from your house.
  • Wash clothes that smell like smoke. Pure tapestry and drapes. Use air fresheners to help get rid of tobacco smells – and don’t forget your car.
  • We celebrate on the road. Quitting smoking is a big deal.
