Some products have been recommended to help people quit smoking. I don't believe that these products work. There are too many risks of quitting smoking, including: •The withdrawal symptoms. The withdrawal symptoms can be extreme (e.g., coughing, muscle spasms, etc.) and the risks of them are often very high. •Excessive cravings for smoking. People who want to quit smoking are likely to want to find products that help them smoke fewer cigarettes. If you can't quit because your cravings are so strong, you may have a major problem with the withdrawal symptoms and your symptoms might prevent you from quitting. This may explain why people who have smoked a lot in their lives find that quitting has very difficult. They may have trouble quitting completely, but at least some of their cravings are gone. •Excessive cravings for smoking products. People who smoke a lot often have a very high craving for smoking. They may not have cravings for the same things they used to smoke, or they may have trouble stopping because they don't have enough motivation to quit.
How to Deal With "Cravings" When people have a strong craving for smoking, it's easy for them to make the decision to continue smoking even after they find out they may not be able to do it.
