Quitting smoking is not an easy thing, especially for addicts. Recently a research has been trying to find the best way to stop the habit, and to help people who want to be healthy and free from bad habits.
If there is any suggestion that breaking nicotine intake can be gradual and gradual, then it is not recommended by Nicola Lindson-Hawley, a researcher from Oxford University.
“The majority think to stop smoking by reducing the number of cigarettes before quitting. And the advice is just the opposite that would be better if really cut off the intake of nicotine into the body, “said Nicola.
The study, published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine, involved nearly 700 people in Britain.
The volunteers are cigarette addicts who smoke more than 15 cigarettes per day. In the study, they should schedule to quit for two weeks.
Some of them get the job of quitting smoking suddenly or suddenly. While others must stop gradually for two weeks.
They get behavioral guidance and counseling, nicotine patches and nicotine replacement.
Researchers then measure success with a time of four weeks after the initial process of research. And a period of six months later, the results are still monitored.
It appears that cigarette addicts who are forced to stop altogether show better results 25 percent compared to addicts who stop gradually.
Although the percentage of success is more than the group that was forced to stop suddenly, but participants who participated in the study admitted would rather if stopped smoking is done gradually.
