Does the Magic Stop Smoking Pill Help?

By: Darren Warmuth

You may be one of millions who get trapped by catchy ads of ‘magic pills’ that can cure you of your smoking habit without any effort. It is all tall talk. There is no such wonder drug. So, don’t wait for miracles to happen, and start making an effort to get rid of your smoking habit.

Well, I am afraid I have some bad news for you. It doesn't exist yet. You still have to want to quit and put some effort in of your own. Yes, you read that right. You need to make the change and implement it of your own accord.

Regarding the 'magic pills', look at some interesting statistics:

* Quitting cold turkey is successful for approximately 3% of people (keep in mind that those 3% may not have quit on their first attempt).

* Many off-the-shelf pharmaceuticals claim to double your chances (6%) and increase them fivefold (15%) at best.

* Other newly released products are claiming nearly twenty times the effectiveness of cold turkey. However on closer investigation you will find that these numbers were gained by tracking a fully supported test group who not only got their medication for free, but were also watched over for the full term of the test phase by a team of doctors and counselors. And to top it all off, they were also paid for their efforts as well. Couldn't we all quit if someone else is willing to spend thousands of dollars and dozens of hours to help us do it? Unfortunately this option isn't available to most people so I daresay that this new and improved wonder drug will ultimately fall into the same percentages as every other pharmaceutical offering.

The best success rate varies between 6% and 15% only. The magic 100% that the smokers would like to believe is an illusion. There is no doubt, nonetheless, that smoking cessation aids do help sometimes, and they can help more if you make a proactive effort on your part. All you have to do is place your faith in yourself and your ability to achieve your stop smoking goal and not rely completely on a pill or a patch.

I'm not talking about willpower here either. I'm talking about education and information. I'm talking about finding out what the real truths are about your smoking habit and what it really takes to rid yourself of it. But that is much too in-depth of a subject to cover in even a series of articles. That's why fully encompassing information programs have been developed - to help you meet this goal.

So, seek out all the information you can find about smoking, nicotine, quitting and the benefits of quitting. You need to spend a few days or weeks to find the information that will help you quit without relying on a 'magic pill' to do it for you. It is a small effort for breaking a habit you have built over decades, perhaps.

The more you know, the more successful you will be. And, this is true in all aspects of life.

Best of luck for future,

Darren Warmuth
