  • Today in www.bbc.com - 'Don't go cold turkey' to quit smoking

    Extract from the article -

    "Government health officials have said smokers stand a much greater chance of succeeding giving up by using official NHS support or turning to e-cigarettes.

    Research has shown only 4% of those who go "cold turkey" remain smoke-free after a year.

    But turning to nicotine replacement therapies, such as patches or lozenges, can increase that by 1.5 times.

    And getting help from an NHS stop-smoking clinic leads to a four-fold rise in the chances of succeeding, according to Public Health England."
