How to give up smoking

I desperately want to quit smoking due to my fading health. I tried to quit smoking last year and turned to vaping, I tried vaping with three different vape pens but wasn't able to get that nicotine rush from any of those. Subsequently I started smoking again. Any advice on how I can quit? Thanks in advance. Paul

Hi Paul

Thank you for getting in touch about advice on how to quit smoking. Addictive habits can be hard to break and congratulations in taking the first step in wanting to make a change.

There are few options to explore in quitting smoking that are known to be effective and I would also recommend talking to your GP who should be able to guide you towards the right direction:

The NHS has different options which may be helpful to you https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/stop-smoking-treatments/ and also the modality of hypnotherapy has proven success in quitting the habit https://www.webmd.com/smoking-cessation ... -smoking#1

I wish you the best of luck.
