Trying to kick the habit? Work with a counselor

Created: 01/01/2014 9:16 AM WHEC.com

People who have resolved to quit smoking in the New Year will be more likely to kick the habit if they work with a counselor.
Researchers in England studied 10,000 people who tried to quit smoking in the past year. They found those who worked with a counselor and used nicotine replacement products were three times more likely to successfully quit than those who tried on their own.
Smokers who used nicotine gum and patches without advice from a health professional were no more likely to quit than those who went cold turkey.
