Med­i­cine does not stand still, and every time dif­fer­ent ways appear on the mar­ket that can help peo­ple get rid of a bad habit. Recent­ly, how­ev­er, sci­en­tists from the Unit­ed States came to a stun­ning con­clu­sion — today there is no effec­tive way to quit smok­ing once and for all. This prob­lem can be solved only by a per­son who has decid­ed to get rid of nico­tine addic­tion. Experts came to these results after an exper­i­ment in which 1086 smok­ing vol­un­teers par­tic­i­pat­ed.

All par­tic­i­pants were divid­ed into three groups. The first group of peo­ple were offered to fight smok­ing with the help of an anti-nico­tine patch, in the sec­ond group, par­tic­i­pants took spe­cial pills with which they sup­pos­ed­ly can quit smok­ing. Par­tic­i­pants in a third group fought the habit with both anti-nico­tine patch­es and pills.



This exper­i­ment con­tin­ued for one year. All par­tic­i­pants com­plet­ed week­ly spe­cial ques­tion­naires, as well as blood tests, and the results were com­pared after 6 and 12 months.

It turned out that all the meth­ods used are exact­ly the same in their effec­tive­ness. One year after the study, 21% of the par­tic­i­pants in the first group quit smok­ing, 19% of the sec­ond group and 20% of the third.

Sci­en­tists have come to the con­clu­sion that med­i­cine has not yet come up with a real­ly effec­tive method to com­bat smok­ing. And all exist­ing meth­ods help about the same. There­fore, a per­son can get rid of nico­tine addic­tion only if he is real­ly moti­vat­ed.
