Patient Question

Hello Doctor,

I'm 32 weeks pregnant and eager to quit vaping. What's the best approach?

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

 

Firstly, it's crucial to assess your current vaping habits to determine the extent of nicotine consumption. Understanding your usage pattern, including the frequency and quantity of pods consumed per day, will provide valuable insight into devising a tailored cessation plan. Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), such as chewing gum or patches, can be a viable option to help manage withdrawal symptoms and gradually reduce nicotine dependency. However, it's essential to ensure that the NRT dosage aligns with your nicotine intake from vaping. This adjustment is particularly critical when using patches, as they must match your nicotine consumption and should not be worn at night. In addition to NRT, setting a quit date can serve as a tangible goal to work towards. Establishing a clear timeline for cessation and implementing strategies to avoid triggers associated with vaping can enhance your chances of success. 

 

Thanks
