When you have previously attempted to quit smoking without using any tools or aids and failed miserably, you are not alone, as up to 97% of people do who try going cold turkey. When you have had enough of being a smoker and want help to quit, many tools are available that can help you be successful, and the first place to start is visiting your doctor. They can go through the various NRTs (nicotine replacement therapy) you can use to help you become an ex-smoker. Below are some options that millions of people have used successfully worldwide to quit smoking, showing you that it is possible and you can do it with a little willpower and help.
When looking for a discreet NRT to help you control your nicotine cravings, nicotine patches are an excellent option. You can place one of these patches on your upper arm, hidden under your clothes, and it will release nicotine over 24 hours, helping to prevent you from having cravings for nicotine. If you do find that there are times when you are struggling to control your cravings, you can use another NRT to help you, nicotine gum, which many people use in conjunction with other NRTs.
Nicotine gum is the oldest form of NRT available, and you can get it in various nicotine strengths and flavours. When you feel the urge to smoke increasing in strength, start chewing some gum, and the feeling will soon go away. Many people will use nicotine gum even when using another NRT, as it is ideal for long journeys and situations where you cannot do things like vaping to control your cravings.
Another massively popular NRT that millions worldwide use is a vaping device, and there are many different types available. There are disposable vapes, pod vapes, Squonk mods, box mods, and more. You must decide whether you want a simple-to-use device or one that you can customise your vaping experience, such as using a sub-ohm vaping device with variable wattage control. When looking at the vapour juice you can use in your device, there are many flavours and combinations you can choose to vape, and there are six primary flavour categories, which are as follows:
- Dessert Flavours
- Drink Flavours
- Menthol Flavours
- Tobacco Flavours
- Candy Flavours
- Fruit Flavours
Oral Nicotine Spray
Another option you can consider using to help you quit smoking is an oral nicotine spray, which can effectively control your nicotine cravings. When you feel the urge to smoke increasing in strength, you can spray the back of your mouth and throat using the pump action spray bottle, and the capillaries will absorb the nicotine in the liquid. Your cravings will soon subside, and you can get on with things without worrying about wanting to smoke a cigarette.
The above are a couple of options for NRT available, but there are more you can consider. Discuss your options with your doctor and go through the pros and cons of each, and you can get the help you need to quit smoking successfully and not go back to it.
