Does quitting cold turkey work?
We can all agree that it’s better for your health (and your wallet) to simply quit cold turkey. No e-cigs, no nicotine replacement therapy, no medication, no hypnotherapy – nothing.
Most smokers who have tried to quit have attempted the cold turkey method at some point. However, as a method for long term smoking cessation, it has the lowest success rate.
Research over the past 25 years has shown that, out of 100 people trying to quit smoking cold turkey, only three to five of them will succeed for longer than six months. In other words, while some people can quit this way, at least 95 percent of people can’t.
This is because cutting off all access to nicotine at once can lead to intense withdrawal symptoms. These can include:
Lowered heart rate/blood pressure Nausea Headaches Acute cravings Constipation and/or diarrhoea Insomnia and fatigue Increase in hunger/sugar cravings Trouble concentrating Irritability/short temper Anxiety and/or depression Vaping could give you your best chance at quitting for good
The Smoking Toolkit Study found that e-cigarettes are 60% more effective in helping smokers quit. This is when compared to smokers who attempt to quit unaided, or by using over-the-counter nicotine replacement products (gum, patches, inhalers, etc.).
Furthermore, a recent study by Action on Smoking and Health (ASH.org) showed that 52% of e-cigarette users (1.5 million) are now considered ex-smokers. For the first time, this is a larger number than those who vape and smoke – dual-users (1.3 million). This is really encouraging news for the success of vaping as a permanent quitting method.
