To quit smoking is a considerable decision to make. Attempting to quit smoking on your own is usually very hard and presents a high risk of failing. Indeed, 97% of the smokers who try to stop on their own go back to cigarette smoking.* But every resumption is a source of discouragement or even guilt for many smokers.
Support: a key factor to succeeding in tobacco weaning**
Within the context of tobacco weaning, support from a health professional enables to considerably increase the likelihood of success. The professional has to keep track of the three addictions that tie the smokers to smoking. The physiological addiction, the behavioural addiction and the psycho-affective addiction.
