A Warning About Smoking Cessation Products

There are many products available that are designed to help us quit smoking. These can range from patches to inhalers, from gums to pills, but they all have one thing in common: they do not work. Okay, some of them will work if you have short term goals in mind, but all of them will eventually fail you. These products do not deal with the mental aspect of addiction, they will only help to trick yourself into quitting. Here are some of the more popular products available on the market.

Nicotine gum. Nicotine is right there in the name. The gum contains nicotine. The product is said to work because it will help to lessen your craving. If you want a cigarette, chew on a stick of gum instead. But you are still replacing nicotine with nicotine. The gum does have a much smaller amount of nicotine then a cigarette does, but it is still not a smart way to quit. Using smoking cessation products like nicotine gum can help you stop smoking for a few weeks or more, but eventually you are going to pick up another cigarette. This is because nicotine gum replaces your cigarette addiction with a gum addiction.

Another one of the widely available smoking cessation products is the nicotine patch. Again, this product, like most smoking cessation products uses nicotine to get you to stop smoking nicotine. It is the same thing with inhalers. These products have short term goals and will not help you to quit for life.

If you want to quit smoking, and I mean really quit smoking, you need to make the personal decision yourself. Quitting naturally is the only way to truly get rid of cigarettes for ever. You might not think that you have the will power to do this. Does that mean that you are doomed to smoke for the rest of your life? No, it does not. If you want to quit smoking for good try to find a motivational tape or cd that can guide you through the process. You need to quit naturally, but that does not mean that you have to quit alone. Using one of these motivational cd’s can help you gain the momentum to get yourself off of cigarettes. After all, the best smoking cessation products available is ourselves. We are the only ones that can make us quit for good.
