What’s the most effective way to quit smoking?

Many studies show that the most effective way to stop smoking is to involve a clinician. According to the research, you're more likely to quit tobacco products successfully when you do 2 types of clinical treatments at the same time:

Pharmacological therapy, which is when you use smoking cessation medications to reduce nicotine cravings, relieve the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal, and/or make smoking less pleasurable. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), these medications can help double your chances of quitting for good.

Behavioral counseling, which may include exploring your motivation to change, your beliefs about smoking cigarettes or e-cigarettes, and your barriers to quitting.

How long does nicotine withdrawal last?

Symptoms of nicotine withdrawal tend to be worse within the first 3 days after quitting tobacco, and then go away after 3 or 4 weeks.

Common smoking cessation medications

Your clinician will determine which (if any) smoking cessation medication is medically appropriate for you based on your symptoms and health history. If you're prescribed medication, pick it up at a pharmacy of your choice. Choose Amazon Pharmacy for free delivery and transparent Prime pricing.

Frequently asked questions

Is this treatment right for me?
This treatment may be right for you if:
You're ready to quit smoking

• You’re not clinically depressed

• You don’t have chronic kidney disease (eGFR < 30)
How can I stop smoking for good?
In addition to the established smoking cessation therapies, it can help to set a quit date. Once you have this quitting smoking timeline, you can gradually lower your tobacco intake as you approach the day you smoke your final cigarette or vape. You can start pharmacological treatment before or on this quit date.

And if you relapse, as many people do, keep trying until you've quit for good. Sometimes staying on smoking cessation medication for a few extra weeks can help you accomplish your goal.
What are the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal?
Symptoms of nicotine withdrawal may include irritability, trouble sleeping, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, restlessness, depression, and increased appetite.

(But before you decide that you don't want to deal with these symptoms, remind yourself that the side effects of smoking include lung disease, emphysema, cancer, and heart disease.)

The more dependent you are on tobacco products, the worse you're likely to feel when you quit. For example, a social smoker might not experience any physical symptoms of nicotine withdrawal, while someone who always smokes within the first 30 minutes of waking up may need extra support for the first few days or weeks.
How do I help someone quit smoking?
You can help someone stop smoking by first recognizing where the person is in their quitting journey. Motivation theory describes several stages a smoker needs to go through before they can make this positive change in their life:
1. Pre-contemplation stage, when they're not even thinking about giving up smoking, vaping, or chewing tobacco

2. Contemplation stage, when they're starting to consider quitting

3. Preparation stage, when they're actively planning to stop smoking, vaping, or chewing

4. Action stage, when they're actively quitting

5. Maintenance stage, when they've accomplished their goal
To help someone quit smoking, you can try tailoring your support to different stages. For example, someone who's not even thinking about quitting might need more information about how smoking ages the lungs and the skin. Someone who's in the preparation stage might need advice on smoking cessation medication. And someone who's in the action stage might benefit from a financial incentive, like putting $1 in the vacation savings jar for every day they don't smoke.
