Gallup Poll releases survey discussing how former smokers quit smoking.


Quitters Most Likely to Use "Cold Turkey" Strategy


The quarter of Americans who have successfully quit smoking, when asked to name the strategies or methods they used to quit, are most likely to attribute their success to just deciding to quit "cold turkey." Smaller percentages of reformed smokers name willpower, support from family and friends and prayer, use of the nicotine patch, ceasing to be around people who smoke, using chewing gum or candy, and using an electronic cigarette.

Video version of this string:

"Whatever you do, don't quit cold turkey"


Video discusses how most professional literature, public health officials, government and voluntary health organizations, physicians and other health care workers will tell you that cold turkey is the least successful method of quitting smoking, and why you should not believe them.

Being that today is April 1, the title of this article could easily have been viewed as an April fools joke. Sadly, it is no joke and it is no laughing matter. Very well meaning people are discouraging smokers from quitting with what is the most tried and true successful method of smoking cessation on the planet. The way to quit smoking and to stay smoke free is simply to not "fool" around with nicotine from any source and as far as for burning tobacco products to know to never take another puff![font=ARIAL, GEORGIA, 'TIMES NEW ROMAN', TIMES, SERIF][/font][font=ARIAL, GEORGIA, 'TIMES NEW ROMAN', TIMES, SERIF]Joel[/font]
