Help For Those Trying To Stop Smoking

Posted:

A majority of smokers want to quit -- many try -- few succeed.

According to the American Legacy Foundation, At any given time, 70% of smokers say that they want to quit. They surveyed 15 hundred smokers. Of those who were making a resolution for 2013, a 3rd said it would be easy to quit smoking. But, without help, most of those good intentions go up in smoke within a week.

Help begins with talking to a doctor -- who can recommend nicotine replacement products or prescription medications.

It also requires re-learning life without cigarettes. Dr. Cheryl Healton says you have to map out when you're used to having cigarettes and get work-arounds for all those times so that you reduce the kind of cravings that are associated with it.

If you've relapsed since new year's day... You're not alone.
Some smokers must try as many as 11 times before they succeed.
Do it monthly... And you can ring in 2014, smoke-free.

You can call 1-800-QUIT NOW Or visit the american legacy foundation's website at www.becomeanex.org
