How successful will a person be quitting alone?
Diane, Pierre, SD
Some 70 percent of smokers want to quit, but when they try it on their own, their success rate is only about 7 percent. Studies show that adding a couple of resources to your quit plan, such as counseling, nicotine replacements or other medications, can increase that success rate significantly. Also having the support of family and friends helps add to the success rate.
If you have any questions or problems always see your health care provider.
