Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on new research that says smokers with a support system are much more likely to kick the habit.
As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/immune/trying-to-quit-smoking-what-actually-works/), most smokers don’t have to search far for a reason to try to quit smoking. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that cigarette smoking is responsible for over 400,000 deaths each year in the United States. Smoking causes about 90 per cent of all lung cancer deaths in men and 30 per cent of all lung cancer deaths in women.
As the Bel Marra Health article reads, more than ever, the support system the smoker has in place is of the utmost importance. Research shows that people who don’t have a good support system around them find it more difficult to quit smoking.
Smoking researchers have discovered that if a person cheats within the first two weeks of experiencing withdrawal symptoms, it guarantees they will start smoking again within the next 6 months. Still studies show that attempts to quit smoking are never a waste of time.
While some people have said that acupuncture and laser therapy are good ways to quit smoking, there doesn’t appear to be enough scientific evidence to support either of these methods. A study in Singapore involving over 300 participants exposed to laser treatment found no difference in quitting rates and a similar study in the United Kingdom found minimal results.
Acupuncture is said to lessen the withdrawal symptoms of smoking cessation. Many people have tried this treatment for quitting and say they have been successful, yet medical reviews indicate there isn’t enough consistent evidence to call acupuncture a sure-fire method. Medical experts do admit it has possibilities and warrants further investigation. This all leads back to the idea of the support system as being the key point of contention for the smoker in question.
Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione says, “According to the Cancer Control Institute in Australia a comprehensive study shows that even when people fail at their attempts to quit smoking, they tend to be better off. Researchers discovered that the majority of those who have tried smoking cessation methods end up smoking less following failed attempts.”
