Vaping, E-Cigarettes, and Tobacco–Learning How to Quit

Most of us have known someone who smokes. Smoking is a practice that has been with us for a long time; cigarettes have even been around for centuries. And no wonder! Nicotine is super addicting. Happily, in this country at least, we’ve made a lot of headway in reducing this killer habit. Nonetheless, smoking is still the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in America. But, these days, lighting up a cigarette isn’t the only way people get nicotine. The relatively new phenomenon of vaping or e-cigarettes, poses new challenges to people’s health and new difficulties for quitting. This week, David B. Feldman speaks with Dr. Paul Brunetta, physician and co-author of Learning to Quit: How to Stop Smoking and Live Free of Nicotine Addiction, about how smoking and vaping affect us. But, even more importantly, we discuss how to find the personal motivation and tools to kick the habit.
