On the corporate firm’s campus, a bunch of buddies are having a smoke and a tea.

Associate 1: “Hey, you know what, fellas? I did my normal blood test recently. High blood sugar has been confirmed as a medical condition. Should I retake the diabetes test or not? Not sure how credible the reports are.

Second Friend: “What do you think you are doing with the cigarette in your hand?”

Third friend: “Retest it if you like, but what about your smoking habit?” What, you don’t see the red flags?”

What do you mean, guys?” Friend 1 said. While I’m trying to focus on monitoring my blood sugar, you guys are commenting about my smoking. How does it matter? To what do these two things relate?

You have some really astute friends. There is a link between the two, that much is true. When combined, smoking and diabetes pose serious health risks.  I’m curious as to how.

How? Read on!

Diabetes with tobacco use:

You’ll feel a rush from smoking, but is it worth risking your life for?

Already a chain smoker and a diabetic? Guess you need to forget about controlling diabetes unless you are ready to give up smoking!

If you have diabetes, smoking might hasten the deterioration of your health.

If you’re lucky enough to be on the cusp of diabetes but not quite there yet, smoking over an extended period of time will put you on the path to getting full-blown Diabetes Mellitus.

The chance of acquiring type 2 diabetes is increased by 30–40% in smokers, according to the studies.

When I light up, what happens to me?

Cigarette smoking has been linked to reduced blood flow because nicotine causes blood vessels to constrict.

This in turn puts the pressure on the heart to keep up with the increased demand of the body, in turn raising the risk of heart disease.

Since diabetics are already at an increased risk for cardiovascular disease, there’s no point in adding yet another therapeutic option for the disease by lighting up.

The body’s sugar metabolism (how it uses and controls sugar) is negatively impacted by smoking, making it more difficult to manage high blood sugar levels if the habit is maintained for an extended period of time.

Untreated diabetes can affect multiple body systems and increase the risk of death, especially in the cardiovascular system. Smoking has an effect in this area as well.

It puts you at a bigger chance of going into consequences including cardiac arrest (heart attacks), Ischemic heart disease-resulting from reduced blood circulation, stroke (coming from diminished circulation to the brain), renal diseases and respiratory infections.

Atherosclerosis, which is characterised by the hardening and thickening of blood vessels and the accumulation of fat or cholesterol, is a direct outcome of the effects of smoking on the lipid metabolism.

Uncontrolled diabetes is triggered by the accumulation of fat around the abdomen, which is caused by the accumulation of glucose in the blood caused by smoking.

Damage is compounded in a diabetic with delayed healing due to poor circulation from smoking, which can lead to nonhealing ulcers and repeated infections.

To cut a long tale short, smoking aggravates ad aids the deterioration of the diabetic disease process. It reduces longevity and speeds up demise!

When will I be able to kick this habit for good?

Saying “I quit” is much easier than really following through. However, if you really want to, you can give up smoking.

A healthy lifestyle, effective stress management, and a consistent routine can significantly reduce cigarette consumption.

Reading, playing sports, and listening to music are all great ways to relax and de-stress, which in turn reduces the desire to smoke. Keeping yourself occupied with something else, such as typing, playing, or reading, can also help divert your attention away from the urge to smoke.

The desire to smoke can be reduced by limiting or eliminating your consumption of stimulants such tea, coffee, wine, etc.

You can enlist in a rehabilitation centre or de-addiction programme where you will be trained in a methodical fashion to quit smoking with the use of medication, nicotine replacement therapy, and counselling.

However, these aids are useless unless coupled with the determination to go on. As you will have to encounter a lot of withdrawal symptoms that will tug you to this pleasure providing entity that you need to resist and overcome.
