In brief: Research is mixed

The research on this is mixed.
The journal tobacco control indicates that nicotine gum or patches aren’t any more effective than going cold turkey over the long-term. Studies show some short-term effectiveness. Either way quitting is positive! my patients have liked this website for help in succeeding in kicking the habit: http://www.Smokefree.Gov/.
