Smoking addiction has been said to parallel that of cocaine and heroin and the psychological dependency even harder to overcome due to the availability of tobacco and its lethal, addictive drug, nicotine.
Most quit smoking programs are based on: nicotine replacement methods, cutting down, weaning off, cold turkey, Butt Out, or Quit Now. Many of these programs are using nicotine to help you quit nicotine… does that make sense to you? These programs only have up to a 29% success rate because they only deal with the physical part of the addiction.
