Are you a smoker concerned about your health, facing medical issues, or simply do not want to put your loved ones at risk? You are not alone, as majority of smokers have tried to quit. The problem is: smoking is not as easy to give up as most nonsmokers think.

Though willingness to quit is important, chances of success are greatly improved if smokers are provided with additional tools, such as gums/patches, and counselling. Studies show the most effective method is use of e-cigarettes, as they address both the behavioural and physical cravings.

The best option is to first try to quit on one’s own, if not then try gums/patches and therapy if one can afford it, and if that doesn’t work either then reduce one’s risk by switching to e-cigarettes.
