A Chiropractor in Vancouver WA Discusses Some Tips for Quitting Smoking

aepiduralIn our last blog post, we discussed how smoking is one of the most harmful things you can do for your health and your spine. Quitting smoking has been proven to be extremely difficult, but it is worth the trouble!
If you are beginning to consider embarking on your own quitting process, we have decided to underline a few techniques that have been proven effective today.

Most effective approaches for quitting smoking encompass one or both of the following qualities:

  • Psychological/behavioral
  • Anti-smoking medication

Truth be told, there is no single approach to quitting smoking that has been found 100% effective for all people. This is due to the fact that every person’s individual path is unique.

Most research out there suggests that the most effective approach for quitting smoking is a combined intervention.

If you choose a combined approach, you will likely use both:

  • A behavioral approach that will address your actual “habit” of smoking.
  • A medication that will help you deal with the physical dependency and nicotine withdrawal.

To learn more about what you can do to quit smoking, talk to your doctor!
