I came across a statement that puzzled me in the little booklet produced by the Welsh Assembly and given out to would be quitters. At the end of a paragraph about NRT it says ''So it is much safer than tobacco and much less addictive'' Isn't nicotine just as addictive however it's administered? And to make matters worse when I took the short test under the heading '' Do I need NRT or Zyban'' the result indicated that I was very addicted and should try one of these 'medications' (my quotes). So according to this not only was I stopping smoking by a method nearly garanteed to fail, I was told that when I did fail not to feel guilty about it, just to try again and again.
I'm so glad I found this website.
I used to say to my children ''If at first you don't succeed, try, try and try again'' in the case of quitting smoking perhaps it should be ''If at first you don't succeed, die, die and die again''.
