New hope on the Horizon for People Wishing to Quit Smoking ,,

Smoking is one of the most difficult addiction to give up.

In an exciting research done at the University of Toronto in Canada it was found that medication called methoxsalen ( this is currently used to treat skin disorders) may help addicts who wish to give up smoking.

Nicotine replacement, in the form of a patch or gum, to keep the level of nicotine in blood up without smoking is currently used to help to reduce withdrawl effects of smokers trying to give up smoking.

Methoxsalen is not yet approved for long-term use in humans. So further testing will be required to determine whether or not this drug will be beneficial and safe for people who wish to quit smoking. Alan I. Leshner, M.D., director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), says, "This research opens up an exciting new avenue of treatment that can help smokers substantially reduce their exposure to tobacco smoke while they overcome the addiction to nicotine that makes it so hard to quit."
