We’ve all heard that smoking can be a bad habit to break. What are the different ways to quit and which is the most effective?
Anatomy Of Addiction: Why It’s So Hard To Quit Smoking
“”You inhale in, and almost immediately you can feel good, you can feel the buzz,” Piper told MyHealthNewsDaily. When you stop smoking, those nicotine receptors don’t get activated, so you’re not getting as much dopamine as you’re used to, which causes feelings of withdrawal, she said. Scientists aren’t completely sure what happens to the nicotine receptors in the brain if no more nicotine is received.”
Nicotine Replacement Therapies May Not Be Effective In Helping People Quit Smoking
“Nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs) designed to help people stop smoking, specifically nicotine patches and nicotine gum, do not appear to be effective in helping smokers quit long-term, even when combined with smoking cessation counseling, according to a new study by researchers at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and the University of Massachusetts Boston.”
Can Lasers Help You Stop Smoking? Check The Data
“Could one hour be all you need to quit smoking, without cravings or side effects?
