Best Stop Smoking Products
Stop smoking products (also known as cessation aids) have helped many smokers to quit smoking. This is a list of some of the best ones, based on the numerous testimonials I have received from the many, many ex-smokers I have heard from over the years.
I would love to hear about your experiences too - so please don't hesitate to let me know how you fared with products that may or may not be listed here.
If you are planning on trying these, please bear in mind that there are no miracle cures.
You have to want to give up and, as research suggests, any attempt you make to quit is likely to be even more successful with the support of your family and friends and/or with counseling from your doctor or other healthcare professional.
Drug Store Smoking Cessation Products
A study has shown that smokers who quit using the Commit 2 mg Lozenge gained less weight compared to those quitting on placebo.
There is no such claim made for the 4mg version which is recommended for those who smoke within 30 minutes of waking up but Commit Lozenges are effective at helping you to combat cravings, which is what the product was designed for.
Excellent credibility (as the brand is from the makers of Nicorette) and an equally excellent reputation amongst smokers.
Available in mint and cherry flavors and a variety of pack sizes, including what the manufacturers call a 'Pop Pac' which amounts to a small pocket sized tube, these aren't the cheapest stop smoking products on the market.
Prices start from around $30 USD for 72 lozenges but they are worth every cent.
