Without a doubt the greatest impediment facing people who wish to stop smoking is the stop smoking cravings that you experience. They can sometimes be so bad that some people start to shake when they do not have a smoke and become very irritable and unpleasant to be around. If you are not strong enough or your addiction to nicotine is very strong and you have been smoking for a long time it maybe ineffectual to quit smoking cold turkey or quit without using some product to help reduce the cravings for cigarettes.

The World Health Organization estimates that 95% of the people who stop smoking using only sheer willpower will fail by the end of the year and of the 5% that do manage to stick it out for the whole year; many of those have only been smoking for a short amount of time. Further research on the topic has also suggested that your ability to quit smoking on a whim depends mainly on your genetic makeup. Long story short, if you do not have the right genes it can be very hard to quit.

There are plenty of products which can help you to stop smoking out there. One of the most popular ways to eliminate the stop smoking cravings is by using nicotine replacement therapy products. In this class of products there are nicotine patches and nicotine gum. These products aim to reduce the nicotine withdrawal symptoms by giving you a steady dose of nicotine through some other means.

These products have some advantages and one of them is the fact that for many people they are quite effective in getting rid of the cravings since you are getting the substance you are addicted to anyway in nicotine. Some of the disadvantages linked to this type of treatment include the fact that you are not really dealing with the nicotine addiction problem and also there are some terrible side-effects associated with the disease. There is plenty of other information to consider when trying out nicotine replacement therapy products.

Another way in which you can reduce the effects of nicotine withdrawal and stop smoking cravings is by using natural homeopathic products. Homeopathic treatments for people who wish to stop smoking are made from all natural substances and they are quite effective at reducing the stop smoking cravings. The side-effects are also minimal and you only need to get enough for about 8 weeks until your body is no longer dependent on nicotine. The disadvantages for this product include the fact that it takes some time to arrive so you may have to wait before you can quit. There are plenty of other factors you should consider when making your decision though.
