Matt Bucklin, creator of Quit Tea, explains:
Quitting smoking is so important that you should use anything and everything to help. Most of the studies of success rates that will see for various smoking cessation aids, including nicotine replacement, hypnosis, antidepressants and so on, are when used to quit smoking alone. In the real world, not trial world, you can use as many smoking cessation aids, in combination as you want!
There is lots of evidence available, and expert opinions, that using a combination of smoking cessation aids will provide the best possible chance of quitting success. The American Cancer Society’s website mentions that combinations of smoking cessation aids can be highly affective. They focus on pharmaceutical options, for which there are studies and FDA approval, but mention that combinations such as Zyban and nicotine replacement therapy have been shown to have a higher quitting success rate than either therapy alone.
Whatever products or methods you are using to quit smoking, herbal remedies for quitting smoking can be an excellent supplement to increase your chances of success. Herbs can be very effective, while mild enough to be used concurrently with other smoking cessation aids. Many people will use herbs for smoking cessation in combination with nicotine replacement, or while cutting down on cigarette consumption. A herbal product like Quit Tea can be especially helpful if you choose a product like the nicotine patch because a patch will not help satisfy the hand to mouth habit that sipping herbal tea would. Instead of putting on a nicotine patch and snacking on high calorie foods, you can make a cup of Quit Tea, which is calming, and good for detoxing and your lungs, and replace the psychological addiction to smoking.
The combinations of quit smoking aids for you could come up with are endless, so why no try everything. There are lots of herbs available that are good for smokers, like licorice root for your lungs, red clover, and burdock for detoxing. Also, make sure to include changes to your lifestyle like more physical activity, eating better, and drinking plenty of water. All of these are part of effective combination smoking cessation therapy.
People tend to blame themselves when they fail to quit smoking and not the smoking cessation aid or aids. If you have the willpower, enough information, and the right mix of smoking cessation tool and aids, then you can and will quit smoking!
