Current programs designed to help people stop smoking consist of Nicotine Gums, Patches, Pills, Lozenges, and Inhalers. They all have one thing in common; Nicotine. Even though they do not replace the Nicotine with anything else except a lower dosage of Nicotine delivered into the body through various methods, they are still referred to as Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRT). These programs should be called Nicotine Reduction Therapies as they are a bit misleading. The human body starts going through physical withdrawals when Nicotine is still present in
8 out of 10 NRT users will relapse within one year
reduced doses. In order to help with the withdrawals, the Nicotine must be completely removed from the system. Using NRT and keeping Nicotine in your system is obviously not an effective method of getting Nicotine out of your system. They will only cause prolonged and repeated physical withdrawals. Even the NRT manufacturers own studies show that 8 out of 10 NRT users will fully relapse within a single year.
NRT programs – with a 80-85% failure rate, why would you bother?
or just keep lining the pockets of the Tobacco companies who make the stuff?
Hmmm could that be a smart marketing move????
