Not smoking anymore is the goal. At the end of my book, How to Stop Smoking Without Killing Anyone, I tell you plainly, "For God's sake, get some help!" If it's a prescription medication that get's you there, more power to you.
That's my disclaimer. Now for the nitty, the gritty, one dose of however and a big but (pun intended).
If you just wind up replacing one addiction for another, why bother? That's the point. In a previous blog, I mentioned methadone. How is that a good idea? So you're off heroin but hooked on methadone and when you try to get off the methadone, you're back on the heroin.
So out on the market is a drug that is in a class of drugs for smoking cessation. Wikipedia calls it a smoking cessation aid. Meaning it's there to help but not do the job. I'm OK with that part. Here's where I have a problem:
Really? Well that's some sound advice!
P.S. If you'd like to do a cost/comparison analysis, a pack of 56 of these wonder pills will run you on average 135 bucks. The recommendation is 12 weeks. That's 3 months. $405 to get off smoking and be like Bob. My book How to Stop Smoking Without Killing Anyone is $15.89. A one time investment for a lifetime of success.
So the peanut gallery is open, what's your take?
