The shocking reason why most attempts to quit smoking fail – How to guarantee that you will succeed
Conventional techniques to quit smoking have less than 25% success rate!
We all know that quitting smoking is hard, there is a physical addiction to the buzz you get from smoking along with withdrawal symptoms when you try to stop. It is hard to break a habit that has often been formed over a number of years.
There are social pressures from friends who smoke along with triggers from well-meaning friends asking how you quit journey is going. Even so, less than 25% success rate from products that are supposed to help you quit is unacceptable and a little hard to believe! And the most effective of these conventional products/techniques is quitting cold turkey!
Let’s look at the shocking reasons why most conventional quit products are so ineffective, look at the mental and social side of smoking addiction and then finally look at how you can make sure that when you are ready to quit, you give yourself the best chance of doing it naturally on the first attempt and without gaining weight!
Trading one addiction for another
Nicotine Replacement Therapy
Patches, lozenge, mouth spray, inhaler, gum, most e-cigarettes – all contain nicotine. Nicotine is very addictive, replacing nicotine with nicotine doesn’t do anything to stop your addiction, it’s still there, you’ve just changed the way you consume the nicotine, and in some cases, increased your intake and health risks due to having cigarettes while taking the NRT.
Most quit smoking products are owned by tobacco companies. Do you trust that a company that still does not publicly acknowledge the link between cigarettes and cancer has your best interests in mind? Do they really want to help you quit and lose the revenue they gain from you buying their products?
The medication prescribed to help people quit smoking is also produced by tobacco companies! In fact, the term pharmaceuticalisation was coined to describe the process of the tobacco companies becoming involved in the pharmaceutical industry to produce medication to be prescribed as an aid in quitting smoking.
The two main medications prescribed for people wanting to quit smoking are Chantix and Zyban (bupropion). Both have the same addictive effect as nicotine (to a lesser effect) by causing the release of dopamine. They also have a long list of side effects with some of them being very common. Here is a list of side effects.
- Nausea (30% occurrence)
- Trouble sleeping, unusual dreams, or sleepwalking
- Changes in taste
- Skin rashes
- Heart or blood vessel problems (mostly in people who already have these problems)
- Mood or behaviour changes, such as depression, hallucinations, delusions, aggression, hostility, agitation, anxiety, panic, or even suicidal thoughts
- Dry mouth
- Stuffy nose
- Trouble sleeping and nightmares
- High blood pressure
- Feeling depressed, anxious, agitated, hostile, aggressive, overly excited or hyperactive, or confused; or having suicidal thoughts
- (ref. cancer.org)
While these medications can work for some people, the success rate is very low, and the health risks are very high.
The act of smoking becomes part of a daily routine. Many smokers light up at specific times of the day – such as when drinking coffee or driving – or when they’re feeling a certain way, like stressed or tired. Cigarettes may become a crutch, almost like a steady companion.
Many smokers develop social groups around smoking – people will head out for a smoke break with friends or co-workers. Smoking can also be used as a social icebreaker by asking someone: “Got a light?” Going smoke-free may mean altering your social groups and re-evaluating where you spend your recreational time.
You need to address both the mental and social side of smoking addiction in addition to the physical addiction to give yourself the best chance of quitting.
Success Rates of Different Quit Smoking Methods
So, nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) and quit medication is actually less effective than quitting cold turkey! They are trading one addiction for another and since most of these options are produced by tobacco companies, is it that surprising that they keep your addiction alive and well?
Hypnotherapy (a natural way to quit) is very effective in helping people to kick their habit as it addresses the mental and social side of addiction and helps you to have a great plan of action to succeed. However, if hypnotherapy is not for you, then “Quit Without Craving is a great alternative.
At this point, what you might also be asking is what is “Quit With Out Craving” and why is it so effective?
