(2) USE NRTs


if you decide to go “cold turkey”, or quitting smoking without the help of NRT, medication, or therapy, is a popular way to give up smoking. However, only around 6 percent  of these quit attempts are successful.

This use NRTs  can help you to fight the withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting smoking..


Use of NRT can reduce the cravings and withdrawal symptoms you experience that may hinder your attempt to give up smoking. NRTs are designed to wean your body off cigarettes and supply you with a controlled dose of nicotine while sparing you from exposure to other chemicals found in tobacco.. Got it?


You should know that The U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have approved five types of NRT:


-skin patches

-chewing gum


-nasal spray (prescription only)

-inhaler (prescription only)

So if you have decided to go down the NRT route, discuss your dose with a healthcare professional before you quit smoking. Remember that while you will be more likely to quit smoking using NRT, the goal is to end your addiction to nicotine altogether, and not just to quit.


This method of quitting smoking is also very important.
FDA have approved two non-nicotine-containing drugs to help smokers quit. These drugs are bupropion (Zyban) and varenicline (Chantix)… Write this down.

(a) Bupropion and varenicline are non-nicotine medications that may help to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms of smoking.

Kindly talk to your healthcare provider if you feel that you would like to try one of these to help you to stop smoking, as you will need a prescription.

This drug Bupropion acts on chemicals in the brain that play a role in nicotine craving and reduces cravings and symptoms of nicotine withdrawal. Bupropion is taken in tablet form for 12 weeks, but if you have successfully quit smoking in that time, you can use it for a further 3 to 6 months to reduce the risk of smoking relapse..

(b) Varenicline interferes with the nicotine receptors in the brain, which results in reducing the pleasure that you get from tobacco use, and decreases nicotine withdrawal symptoms.
This Varenicline drug is used for 12 weeks, but again, if you have successfully kicked the habit, then you can use the drug for another 12 weeks to reduce smoking relapse risk..

There are some Risks involved with using these drugs include behavioral changes, depressed mood, aggression, hostility, and suicidal thoughts or actions. So beware of such.


You know The emotional and physical dependence you have on smoking makes it challenging to stay away from nicotine after your quit day. To quit smoking, you need to tackle this dependence. The method Trying counseling services, self-help materials, and support services can help you to get through this time. As your physical symptoms get better over time, so will your emotional ones..

(a)There is form of individual counseling or support groups can improve your chances of long-term smoking cessation.
Combining medication – such as NRT, bupropion, and varenicline – with behavioral support has been demonstrated to increase the chances of long-term smoking cessation by up to 25 percent..

(b)Behavioral support can range from written information and advice to group therapy or individual counseling in person, by phone, or online. Self-help materials likely increase quit rates compared with no support at all, but overall, individual counseling is the most effective behavioral support method.. Good.


Many people find alternative therapies useful to help them to quit smoking, but there is currently no strong evidence that any of these will improve your chances of becoming smoke-free, and, in some cases, these methods may actually cause the person to smoke more… So beware.

These alternative methods to help you to stop smoking include,

-E-cigarettes have had some promising research results in helping with smoking cessation.
smoking deterrents
electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes)
tobacco strips and sticks
nicotine drinks, lollipops, straws, and lip balms
magnet therapy
cold laser therapy
herbs and supplements
yoga, mindfulness, and meditation
E-cigarettes are not supposed to be sold as a quit smoking aid, but many people who smoke view them as a method to give up the habit.

That’s E-cigarettes are a hot research topic at the moment. Studies have found that e-cigarettes are less addictive than cigarettes, that the rise in e-cigarette use has been linked with a significant increase in smoking cessation, and that established smokers who use e-cigarettes daily are more likely to quit smoking than people who have not tried e-cigarettes..

This gains from using e-cigarettes may not be risk-free. Studies have suggested that e-cigarettes are potentially as harmful as tobacco cigarettes in causing DNA damage and are linked to an increase in arterial stiffness, blood pressure, and heart rate. Beware.

You should know that quitting smoking requires planning and commitment – not luck. You decide on a personal plan to stop tobacco use and make a commitment to stick to it please.

You must weigh up all your options and decide whether you are going to join a quit-smoking class, call a quitline, go to a support meeting, seek online support or self-help guidance, or use NRTs or medications. You should try combination of two or more of these methods will improve your chances of becoming smoke-free.
