Quitting Cold Turkey

"Did you know that only 5% of the 15 million smokers who try to call it quits every year actually succeed? The reason that number is so low is 1. because the nicotine in cigarettes is so addictive. Think about that number and then consider quitting cold turkey – 2. no help, no plan. Going it alone, or trying to quit smoking "cold turkey,"3.  means relying solely on your willpower to quit. Willpower is essential — you have to want to quit. But, nicotine is so addictive that people often underestimate how difficult it is to resist cravings using willpower alone. 4.Without any help, overcoming that addiction — 5. and the mental addiction to your smoking routine — can be a lot tougher than it needs to be."

(from quit.com)

all I can say point by point is

First, yes, nicotine is very addictive WHILE YOU ARE USING IT

Secondly, going cold turkey DOES NOT MEAN QUITTING WITHOUT A PLAN OR SUPPORT.

Thirdly, USING WILLPOWER TO QUIT MEANS YOU ARE FIGHTING YOURSELF TO NOT SMOKE.

If you decide and are WILLING, THERE IS NO NEED TO FIGHT YOURSELF.

Fourth, staying addicted to the drug is THE WAY to overcome the addiction to the drug?

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

Fifth, AHHHH they finally get to the CRUX of what makes people come back to smoking.

THE PSYCHOLOGICAL ADDICTION

What this all is really saying is,

WE LOVE YOUR MONEY, KEEP USING OUR PRODUCTS.

Will they ever put out the REAL statistics of success using NRT's vs Cold Turkey? NAH

If you want to believe in something, believe quitting is the right decision and BELIEVE IN YOU!
