Most smokers have tried to quit smoking at least 2 or 3 times in their lifetime! Some of them succeeded and live now a healthier life as ex-smokers…some of them gave up and went back to smoking. Still they would like to quit one day…but don’t really know how.
As I said yesterday..cold turkey is the way to go and now I can back it up with actual numbers…tadahhhhhhhh !
There are some interesting polls and statistics about smoker and smoking… and I would like to share the poll-numbers with all of you.
First of all, a heartfelt “Thank you” to the people of www.gallup.com for giving me permission to use their statistics and poll results. I am humbled and very grateful!
The desire to quit smoking is now on an all time high:
The quarter of Americans who have successfully quit smoking, when asked to name the strategies or methods they used to quit, are most likely to attribute their success to just deciding to quit “cold turkey.” Smaller percentages of reformed smokers name willpower, support from family and friends and prayer, use of the nicotine patch, ceasing to be around people who smoke, using chewing gum or candy, and using an electronic cigarette.
So…as I said yesterday:
Don’t be a chicken…go turkey, cold turkey 🙂
