Thinking about quitting smoking?....New report says don't waste your money on nicotine replacement therapy......cold turkey is most effective methodThis story, Is government backing of pharmaceutical industry deceit killing smokers? finds that going cold turkey is the most effective method to quit smoking.
I can personally attest that cold turkey is the best method, as that is also the way I quit smoking 20 years ago.......and I haven't picked up a cigarette since. All my friends and relatives who used some form of nicotine replacement therapy like Nicoderm, Nicorette, Nicotrol, etc....struggled for years, and many never quit.
The other reason I advocate abstaining from pharmaceutical nicotine products, is because the pharmaceutical nicotine companies like Johnson & Johnson Company and their private foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, are the primary funding source for spreading false and misleading data to lawmakers and the media about the need for smoking bans.......simply so they can peddle their ineffective and useless drugs.
For those angered by the social engineering agenda of the pharmaceutical nicotine special interests and the lawmakers who believe in their lies......I urge you to take a stand.......don't be foolish enough to reward them by purchasing their worthless alternative nicotine products.......cold turkey works best, and will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars.
Update: Because of the deceit and exaggerations that Johnson and Johnson's private foundation -RWJF uses to enact rent seeking laws (smoking bans); Clearing the Air feels justified in calling for a complete boycott of Johnson & Johnson Company products.
