How To Quit Smoking?

Following are the most common Methods to quit smoking.

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)

“Nicotine replacement therapy is a medically-approved way to take nicotine by means other than tobacco. It is used to help with quitting smoking or stopping chewing tobacco. It increases the chance of quitting smoking by about 50% to 70%. Often it is used along with other behavioral techniques.” Wikipedia

Cutting down to quit

“continue to reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke as you approach your ‘quit date’ use nicotine replacement therapies in the cutting down phase, this help prevent you compensating for fewer cigarettes by taking more and deeper puffs. change your habits – go for a walk after dinner instead of having a cigarette.” NHS Inform

Quitting smoking “cold turkey”

Quitting smoking “Use electronic cigarettes and vaping devices”

“E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that work by heating a liquid into an aerosol that the user inhales and exhales. The e-cigarette liquid typically contains nicotine, propylene glycol, glycerin, flavorings, and other chemicals. Nicotine is the addictive drug found in regular cigarettes and other tobacco products. Research shows that e-cigarette aerosol often contains substances that can be harmful, including flavoring chemicals (like diacetyl, which is linked to lung disease), metals (like lead), and other cancer-causing chemicals.” SmokeFree.org 

If you are from Australia. then please read this important notice from the Australia government official Health Direct article.
