Hi bappa ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If you want to quit smoking then you should do it on your own will there is no other way.People use nicotine gum called NICORETTE but using it is like you are just shifting from one form of nicotine to another so if you have to stop please do it yourself there is no medicine available.As for a chest physician in Siliguri please contact the local doctor he will guide you.
Thanks

Problem: Erectile Dysfunction. I am 46-years old and on my 12th week of a smoking cessation program. I took Chantix the first two weeks and have been using Nicorette Lozenges on an as needed basis since. My wife also started the program with me, and both of us had been smokers for approximately 30-years. During the first four weeks, sex was no problem, and hadn't been a problem prior to quitting the cigarettes. Starting around the fifth week and up till now I can no longer maintain an erection during intercourse. The good news is that I still wake up with a pretty good erection sometimes but morning usually isn't the greatest time to wake the wife up for a romp in the hay. Everything I've read about ED and smoking runs contrary to what I am experiencing now. Could it be the Nicorrette? Why am I going through this and what can I do about it? Is it normal for someone to experience ED after they have quit smoking and how long does it last?
