What is the Best Method to Stop Smoking
A question that most smokers who are considering quitting smoking ask is "What is the best method to
stop smoking?" There are millions of people who want to stop smoking. The health problems that
smoking can cause are well known, but people are not able to quit because of the highly addictive
nature of nicotine, which is in tobacco. Common quit smoking aids which replace the nicotine without
smoking, include gum, lozenges, and patches. These aids which are referred to as " Nicotine
Replacement Therapy Products" do help satisfy the craving for nicotine.
The problem for many is, the habit of smoking is an overall "experience". It's not only the nicotine.
Smokers also like the sensation of raising a cigarette to their mouth and inhaling and exhaling the
smoke. The act of smoking gets linked to a pleasurable experience like having a smoke with a good cup
of coffee, or after a good meal. The "experience" along with the nicotine, make cigarette smoking an
extremely difficult habit to break. Electronic Cigarette
There is a fairly new product on the market that is gaining in popularity. It's called an electronic
cigarette and I think it makes a lot of sense as a method to stop smoking. The electronic cigarette is a
battery operated cigarette that gives smokers the feeling of smoking a regular cigarette without all the
harmful toxins. The electronic cigarette looks and feels very similar to a regular cigarette. It has a
chamber that turns pure liquid nicotine into a puff of vapor giving the sense of smoking a regular
cigarette, without all the chemicals that are present in regular cigarette smoke. Smokers get the nicotine
and the smoking "experience" without all the health risks of cigarette smoking.
Electronic Cigarettes contain nicotine cartridges which are interchangeable and available in different
strengths. This allows a person to gradually reduce the amount of nicotine they consume by switching
to cartridges with less nicotine content. The cost of electronic cigarettes is much less than regular
tobacco products. Electronic Cigarettes
Although electronic cigarettes are much healthier than tobacco, nicotine is very addictive. If you're not
a smoker, I definitely would not start. If you're an adult who already smokes and you're looking for a
way to reduce the amount, or quit, I would recommend looking into e- cigarettes.
