    Hi first off you need to believe and trust your Doc and cardiologist, secondly you need to know that if you are anxious and suffering with panic all these things will have a physical response, heart palpitations, skipped beats, weakness etc as too many to mention, how old are you, is your diet and weight ok and do you exercise.

      Were you told to not do exercise?? I don't think so, for your age you are either not very tall or maybe underweight, your diets probably poor as well, I think exercise would actually help and I think you need to get your vitamin levels checked including vitamin d

    Hi Alexandria is right, it is essential for your health and life that you stop. It must be very worrying to have heart problems but you must take control. I stopped using champix tablets, perhaps you can buy a course on the internet? You can also think about self help dvds and books. Alan Carrs Easyway book is excellent and I think theres also a dvd to accompany the book. Whilst considering this, smoke lower nicotine cigs, think about where and when you smoke and start to be these habits, reduce the amount you smoke by 10% each week... When stopping, I was told to keep telling myself 'why are I paying money to poison myself'. Tell yourself this is the first steps towards stopping smoking, now youre working out how to stop, and in a few weeks you will be a non smoker and your health will improve dramatically. Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    There's no one way to stop smoke that works for everyone. To stop, you essential be at the ready both emotionally and mentally. You essential also want to stop smoking for yourself and not to please your person or family. You can consult the doctors near by locations. Doctor is best advised prodding you.

      Stopping smoking for yourself is the only way and good advice.

      Stopping for someone else puts the responsibilty for your choices on other people.... Won't work.

    Smoking affects the vessels that supply blood to your heart and other parts of your body. It reduces the amount of oxygen in your blood and damages blood vessel walls.

    Smoking contributes to atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis occurs when there is narrowing and clogging of the arteries which reduces blood supply, and the amount of oxygen available, throughout the body.

      Vaping is an effort to get around a problem that requires a frontal assault.

      It's like changing seats on the Titanic.... The problem hasn't been solved.

      Maybe try this ?
