Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

Celin contain vitamin C. You can take 1000mg per day. There is no long term harm with its use as it is a water soluble vitamin only.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.

Dear Concerned.,

thanks for writing to us.

Kindly taper the no of cigarettes smoked/Tobacco chewed by you or to taper the same whenever you crave for it you may replace a Cig/fag with T.Vit C as per your doctor.The dosage is 500 mg per day as per Text book. But there is no side effect as it is a water soluble compound called Ascorbic Acid which gets excreted through urine after ingestion.
Pls develop a strong will power to overpower the cravings for tobacco as tobacco and alcohol will not provide any answer to any problem in life and only keep profitting their manufacturers.
Also consider consulting some Yoga Experts as a few Yogasanas such as Kapalabhati are said to be beneficial to quit smoking habit.

Best Wishes.,
Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan.
