Smoking increases the risk of a whole host of health conditions. If you smoke, one of the biggest steps you can take to improve your overall health is cutting back or quitting smoking. Among the health risks of smoking are:
- Lung cancer
- Many other types of cancer
- Heart disease
- Fertility issues
However, nicotine is highly addictive. As a result it can be very difficult to quit smoking using willpower alone. The vast majority of people will require some sort of smoking cessation product.
Types of smoking cessation products
There are many types of smoking cessation products. Some of these will work for some people but not others. If you have tried smoking cessation products in the past and they haven’t worked for you, it may be that the product simply wasn’t right for you.
Many people find inhalators work well. These give the hit of nicotine your body will be craving, while also imitating the movement of bringing the cigarette to your mouth.
Nicotine patches give a constant stream of nicotine, which can deal with cravings effectively. Nicotine gum is also available, which combines the hit of nicotine with an action to keep your mouth busy. Nasal and oral sprays are also available, to give a quick blast of nicotine when cravings are particularly bad.
