Mrs. Smith, an older FitPerez reader, is considering quitting her nicotine habit at her kids urging, but admits she is scared to quit after smoking for so many years. To calm her nerves and get the facts, she wrote smoking counselor Craig Nabat for advice, asking:

Im 60 years old and want to quit - well my kids want me to quit - I am scared that talking about smoking is going to cause me to fall over dead from a heart attack - any thoughts on this?

According to Craig:

Hello Mrs. Smith,

I understand how you feel. To even think about quitting smoking after doing it for so many years can truly be scary. Your kids want you around for many years, so seeing you smoke is terrifying for them I’m sure. Though, in order for you to permanently quit it must be your decision.

You are actually the type of person who I’d encourage to attempt quit smoking through laser therapy. To quickly explain the procedure benefits, the pain free low-level laser treatment helps to alleviate nicotine withdrawal symptoms. When your body and mind are not craving nicotine to the same extent, it becomes easier to deal with the psychological aspects of quitting. It is still important to have the desire to quit smoking. If you email me your city and state at craig@freedomlasertherapy.com I’ll try to locate a local laser therapy clinic for you. You may also want to consider taking Chantix, if we cannot locate a laser clinic for you.

Sincerely,
Craig
