How do I stop smoking?

If quitting smoking is something that you are not able to accomplish through the traditional method of going "cold turkey", there are options that can help you break your hazardous and expensive addiction

  • Nicorette: This is a chewing gum that contains nicotine (the physically addictive chemical in cigarettes) and makes it possible to quit smoking without suffering withdrawals as severe as those that occur with going cold turkey.
  • Nicotine Patch: Working under the same method as Nicorette, a nicotine patch releases nicotine into a person’s body through the skin.
  • Electronic Cigarette: The latest technology in the fight to quit smoking, electronic cigarettes mix small doses of nicotine and vapor and allows a person to physically “smoke” without actually using a cigarette.
