Some people are able to give up smoking using willpower alone while others need to wean themselves off the habit. The reason why it is difficult to stop smoking is due to nicotine withdrawal, which causes; bad mood, irritability, cravings for cigarettes and have difficulty concentrating on work.
Smoking is an easy habit to form but for many it is a very difficult one to stop, treatments include; nicotine replacement, hypnotherapy, Champix, e-cigarettes. The range of treatments mean that if one doesn’t work then there is still scope for other therapies as we know that one shoe doesn’t fit all.
Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) helps smokers to give up by releasing nicotine (the addictive substance) steadily into your bloodstream at a lower and more controlled rate than cigarettes. However some patients still find themselves unable to quit using NRT. In these patients the other method is using a medication called Champix (Varenicline) It’s convenient, discreet and effective. E-Cigarettes are the most recent form of quit smoking aids available, they essentially work as nicotine replacement however the administration of nicotine is much more like smoking therefore making the transition easier.
Here at SimplyMeds we offer Champix, this has proven to be a more successful aid in quitting smoking than other methods available over the counter. You can be sure that we can help make the stop smoking journey easier for you, allowing you to live the life that you want.
