Cellcept (Mycophenolate Mofetil)

Avoid smokers. Sit on the clean side of the cinema and in the nonsmoking area of train, plane or bus. And when someone offers you a cigarette, remember – it’s you who are in charge of your health.
Set up some replacements for tobacco. This is easier than it sounds. Some smokers turn to chewing sugar-free gum; at home a piece of hard salad vegetable will do as well – a carrot, a sprig of raw cauliflower. You won’t need to do this for long. Even a short walk meets the need for a substitute activity.
And set up some rewards, a small one for achieving forty-eight hours, something more after a week. By the end of two to three weeks you can afford to be more generous with yourself! Buy a tie or a bag, see a show, and take a day’s vacation. You deserve it.
Don’t be too upset if you lapse. Many ex-smokers have only succeeded after a few attempts at quitting. Just start again at the top with planning, commitment to a date, avoidance of trigger situations, use of replacements and rewards.
If you must, cut down your consumption gradually before stopping completely. Pick on one of your trigger situations at a time. For example, start by giving up smoking while traveling. Then give up the after-meals cigarette, and so on. Allow up to one week between each advance, but plan your programme ahead. You should commit yourself firmly to this programme, including the target date for your final dose of tar, nicotine and monoxide. A programme like this should not be too prolonged, however, or your enthusiasm may peter out. Aim to be an ex-smoker in four to six weeks. You will still get help from replacement activities, and you will still be earning your rewards.
You have failed again? There is still hope. Attend an anti-smoking clinic, where a group of people help each others’ motivation. Or see your general practitioner; a doctor will give you some additional support. Very possibly, he is a successful ex-smoker himself. Some doctors will prescribe a small dose of a tranquillizing drug to tide you over the first critical week or two; this will act as a temporary replacement. Or if your smoking is really a consequence of an anxiety state your doctor will recognize this and offer the appropriate treatment.
If you absolutely fail. The fewer cigarettes you smoke, and the less of each one, the better. Learn which times of the day your cigarettes are indispensable. Go on smoking at these critical times, but give up the less necessary ones.
Two last points. It is never too late to quit. Though cigarettes are less important as a cause of heart attack in the elderly, they are still potent sources of other disabilities, especially shortness of breath due to chronic bronchitis.
And remember: non-smoking parents are more likely to have non-smoking children. It may be hard to stop; and it’s easy not to start. So be a non-smoker for the sake of your children’s health. You will be setting a good example to your youngsters and to everyone else.
