If you Plan to Quit Smoking Drugs really can Help
Your regular plan to quit smoking usually don’t involve the use of any drugs. People generally try to just steel themselves and move forward on sheer willpower and personal discipline. If your smoking addiction involves no more than 3 cigarettes a day, you might well succeed – it isn’t really a terribly stubborn addiction unless it rises above 3 a day.
But you’ve heard of of people who try to quit and take medicines to help themselves tread that path, have much better chances of success. And medicines really can help – irritability, trouble sleeping or concentrating, the unbelievable appetite – medicines can take care of all of these.
So when you take a big step and try to quit smoking, drugs should play a part, right?
It depends. There are two kinds of quit smoking drugs – nicotine-based ones and nicotine-free ones.
Taking in nicotine through other means – pills or skin patches – may or may not work and to be honest using nicotine product to quit nicotine does not sound rational way to quit smoking to me.
Plus with some people, the patches can make the skin where they are applied quite inflamed (although not unbearably so). The pills in some people, can lead to nausea, sleeping disorders and other such problems. Some people worry that using nicotine replacement therapy, they will just be substituting one bad addiction for another and they should worry.
But that’s not really the way you are supposed to see it according to the tobacco companies. You aren’t quitting smoking because of the nicotine alone which is true, I give them that as it is indeed a harmful chemical to place in your system, nicotine isn’t a fraction as bad as the smoke itself.
There is the carbon monoxide, the toxic chemicals and the tar – all of which coat your insides in a sticky cancer-inducing mess. And anyway, the nicotine you get out of a patch or a pill is only a fraction of what cigarettes would deliver into your system but you can become addicted to all of them as your new fix.
If you are trying to quit smoking, drugs with nicotine make you feel like you’re cheating somehow and lets be honest you are, I have been down that road with everything under the sun in the past and they just did not work to quit smoking for good.
You do have a great option in nicotine-free medication as well. You have probably seen advertising all around for the drug Miracet.
This popular smoking cessation drug helps you in two ways: it makes those cravings and withdrawal symptoms seem far less intense and bothersome.
While nicotine replacement products, nasal sprays, gums, patches and what have you, they aren’t a good way to go to quit as I mentioned above and even for women that have pregnancy planned or if you plan to have one, your doctor will probably ask you to choose a non-nicotine method and that say´s it all, don´t you agree?
The non-nicotine methods are the effective ones like my smoking cession program. It all comes down to a matter of life circumstance and what you can afford.
