    Tobacco Timeout: Outsmarting Nicotine

    Tobacco Timeout: Outsmarting Nicotine

    In this conversation, we discuss the strategies and interventions for helping adolescents quit smoking and vaping. The non-pharmaceutical interventions, such as developing a quit plan, dealing with cravings and triggers, and developing healthy coping strategies, are found to be effective. The expert also emphasizes the importance of support throughout the quitting process and self-care. The use of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is considered on a case-by-case basis for adolescents with moderate to high nicotine dependence. The conversation also highlights the role of parents in educating and supporting their children to avoid smoking and vaping. Government policies, such as monitoring tobacco use, protecting non-users from secondhand smoke, and banning tobacco advertising, are crucial in reducing the prevalence of smoking and vaping among adolescents.

    Real Talk: The Real Deal on Second-hand and Third-hand Smoke/Aerosols

The long-term effects of second-hand smoke exposure include an increased risk of lung cancer and other serious health issues.

    Brain Buzz: The Inside Scoop on Nicotine and Teen Minds

    Brain Buzz: The Inside Scoop on Nicotine and Teen Minds

    In this episode of Teen Talks, the focus is on how nicotine affects the teenage brain. Dr. Thiyagar explains that nicotine is the highly addictive substance found in cigarettes, cigars, and other tobacco products. Nicotine gets into the body through the lungs or mucous membranes and quickly reaches the brain, causing a rush of dopamine and other chemicals that create a feeling of pleasure and reward. The brain can become dependent on nicotine, leading to cravings and withdrawal symptoms when the level of nicotine drops. Starting nicotine use at a young age can have long-term effects on brain development and increase the risk of addiction to other substances. It is important for parents to have open communication with their teens and provide support in quitting nicotine addiction.
