In brief: Yes

Medications may help with symptoms/ cravings while quitting smoking.
Talk with your health care provider about the best approach for you. Combined approach including working with a partner/ group, setting a date to start decreasing smoking/ to stop, slowly decreasing the amount of smoking, avoiding triggers/ situations that invoke the desire to smoke, and possibly medications seem to work best.
