Date:2/15/2013

ntense urges to smoke, it could increase women's risk of relapse, study authors concluded.

"On any given quit attempt, five out of 100 people are successful at quitting 'cold turkey,' 32 percent of those who take varenicline [Chantix] successfully quit, 25 percent of those who use patches and/or gum successfully quit, while those who combine counseling with medications have the best quit rates, greater than 30 percent," Businelle said.

People trying to quit smoking should seek help from their doctor, he added. He also offered the following tips for those who want to stop smoking for good:

  • Track and record cigarette smoking and urges by time of day and intensity.
  • Discard all lighters, cigarettes and ashtrays.
  • Be more active or start a regular exercise routine.
  • Inform friends and family of plans to quit smoking so they can provide support and social pressure to help you stick to that goal.

Smoking-related illnesses are the leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States, claiming more than 1,200 lives daily, the release noted.

The research was funded with grants from the U.S. National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society.
