It is always down to the individual which method is best. I’m not sure if there is any defined successful method about anyway. Sure, you have the ones seen as advertised such as the nicotine patches and hypnosis and so on, but there is no universal stop smoking methods, per say, that is 100% successful for all.
If there was, then all tobacco companies would have moved on concentrating there efforts on other things. But, if there was a universal panacea then still that individual would need a strong desire to achieve that goal. You can lead the horse to the water trough but you are not going to make him drink. He will do that only when he is good and ready.
I cannot emphasise this enough. You must well and truly make your mind up whether or not you want to stop smoking. All the stop smoking methods in the world will not have the slightest influence on you until you have done this. Once you are ‘prepared’, then you can get on with the business of seeking out a method.
I can only suggest that you choose one that you think will serve you best as an individual. Apart from the ones mentioned above you also have gums, inhalers, lozenges, acupuncture, laser, capsules, electronic cigarettes, herbal mixtures and potions. They are the main batch and plenty to choose from.
You will be perplexed when you scan them all so take your time and don’t make any rash decisions. Better to make an informed choice than just gamble on it. Even then, there is no real guarantee of success. This is why I stress that you must be careful in telling yourself that you have a strong desire to stop smoking. If you are ready to make that all important move, then you will have a much stronger chance of success. Go for it! gippro
