MYTH: Cold turkey is the only way to quit

MYTH: Quitting “cold turkey” is the only way to go. FACT: Cold turkey means you stop smoking overnight without any assistance. It can work for some people, but smokers are more likely to succeed at quitting if they get support.  Only 4 people in every 100 that try to quit on their own without support make it through.

Nicotine gum, patches, prescription medicine, hypnosis and counseling can help. This video talks about all the different things you could try: http://nosmokes.com.au/quitting/ways-to-quit/
