Methods to Quit Smoking - Do Any of them Work?

May 27, 2008
So you have finally decided to quit smoking? Where do you start? Which methods to quit smoking really work? You might find yourself quitting for the first time or this is your 100th attempt. With all the options on how to quit smoking out there one can become confused finding a real workable solution.

One of the most traditional methods to quit smoking is going cold turkey. It's just giving up smoking and stopping forever. While some people have really stopped smoking with this method, it doesn't work for most people. If you are going to go this route, you might start by gradually lowering the number of cigarettes you smoke as well as change your diet to a healthier diet giving your body some time to detox so that the initial jolt of withdrawal won't be as bad. If you have willpower, go for this one. If you have struggled before, you might want to choose another option.

Another common method is hypnosis. This is where you have someone free you from your mental addiction to nicotine. While it has worked for some, others have a different story. The debate is whether you are using your own willpower or if hypnosis is actually helping. There is nothing wrong in trying, but statistics aren't favoring hypnosis as a good method to stop smoking.

Yet another method (and one of the better ones) is to use quit smoking aids. These would be the patches, gums, and pills that can assist in the process. You have to be careful in your choice of these items since many have high doses of nicotine. You might break your habit with cigarettes but may also still be addicted to nicotine.

You might want to consider the pills and gums without any nicotine in them at all beating your addiction to cigarettes and nicotine. These aid you in your pursuit to quit while not leaving you hopelessly addicted to nicotine.

With all the methods out there, remember there is no easy way to quit smoking.
