Despite the health issues that come with smoking there are still a lot of people that carry on smoking because the fact is giving up is one of the hardest things you can do. More people than ever are looking for help when they do which has led to a lot of products and services promising to help and make it easier. Here is a look at some things to think about.
Every person is different
There are different therapies, alternative practices like acupuncture and hypnosis, products like patches and gums and electronic cigarettes. All of them claim to be the best, but really there is no one answer for all. You might quit one time and try using patches, and then go back to smoking and then next time try vape Australia products and find electronic cigarettes are the answer for you. Your friend might have better luck with hypnosis. It is important to understand that ‘failing’ with one approach does not mean you cannot and will never get away from smoking cigarettes. It means you have to try again and have patience and experiment with the options or different combinations.
Creating a checklist and doing your research
The first thing you should do is create a list of products out there that are to help you stop smoking. It is easy to get confused with the amount of choice there is. By creating a list you can group those that are similar together and work out which ones you are more drawn to and cross out ones you have tried and failed with. Then you can research the ones you have it narrowed down to. What the advantages and disadvantages are to each of them, costs, and so on. You could also get more information from former smokers, join a support group and make sure you are as informed as you can be.
NRT or Nicotine Replacement Therapy products
A lot of people choose one of the options that fall under NRT meaning Nicotine Replacement Therapy. Patches and gum are the more commonly used products the idea being that you can replace the nicotine with a controlled product and then reduce your intake and get off it completely. They are easy to find, affordable and convenient. With the patches, you can have nicotine released into your blood for as much as 16 hours a day. Gum is popular because it gives you something to do with your mouth which a lot of smokers need.
Something similar to some NRT options is the option to vape Australia e-cigarettes for example. You can vape nicotine e-liquids or nicotine-free liquids. It gives you a similar feel inhaling vapour rather than smoke but lifting it to your mouth and using it at the same time as you used to smoke.
Smoking is hard to give up but many people do it every day and you can too. The type of product you have success with depends on each individual and the type of smoker you are and your preferences and tastes. It may take some time to find a device you like but with the large selection available you’re sure to find a good fit. Check out places like your local Vapo NZ shop like Shosha to see what options you have.
