Smoking Facts to Help You Quit

We understand that making the decision to quit can be difficult, because what’s ahead is most likely one of the hardest things you’ll ever do. It’s also one of the most amazing things you’ll do. We’re here to help you every step of the way.

We’ve brought together facts, tools, and inspiration to get you through and help you break free from smoking for good.

The Facts are on Your Side

We think the following facts are pretty amazing.

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT), like NICORETTE® 16hr INVISIPATCH®, can double^ your chances of successfully quitting smoking versus willpower alone.

^ Stead LF, et al. Nicotine replacement therapy for smoking cessation. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2008, Issue 1. Art. No.: CD000146. DOI: 10.1002/14651858.CD000146.pub3.

Research shows that you can improve your chance of quitting by using two NRT aids at the same time compared to willpower alone.

What’s more – if you stay smoke-free for your first week of quitting, you’re 9x*# more likely to have a successful quit attempt. We can help you get through that crucial first week..

* compared against those smokers who were not abstinent in week 1 as part of an abrupt quit attempt

It’s Never Too Late

The health benefits of stopping smoking begin within the very first hour of quitting. You become healthier throughout the following days and weeks. By quitting, you regain lung capacity and decrease your chances of a heart attack or stroke, which means it’s never too late to stop smoking.

Habits Can Be Broken

We know that breaking a habit isn’t easy, but we also know it’s easier if you change your behaviour. Our tips give you ideas about how to start new habits. In particular, it’s essential for you to write down your smoke-free goals and to reward yourself along your quit journey.

What If You Have a Cigarette?

Relapses happen, so don’t be too hard on yourself. The most important thing is for you to know is how to deal with a relapse rather than letting it break your resolve.

Remember, You’re Doing Something Amazing

By quitting, you’re doing an amazing thing – for yourself and the people in your life. Once you quit, there are so many other things you can do.
