Quit smoking instantly

Quit smoking instantly as it is better than sequential planning of withdrawing the habit of smoking as results found smoking can be easily quit// if a decision is taking instantly as planning a quitting of smoke may not be fruitful sometime.

But the researchers at University College London interviewed more than 1,900 smokers and ex-smokers about their attempts to quit and found that two-thirds of smokers who stopped suddenly succeeded for at least six months, compared to under half of those who planned it in detail, reported the online edition of BBC News.

The study, which appeared in the British Medical Journal, said the planners possibly felt less strongly about giving up. In the study, 65 percent of the unplanned quit attempts had succeeded for at least six months. This compared with 45 percent of those who planned to give up in advance. The researchers however said their findings do not imply that planning to quit is counter-productive. Researchers feel that is a weaker commitment of the person to think of quitting smoking later but still a planning prior to quitting smoking is a must.

According to WHO, smoking is a greater cause of death and disability than any single disease and considered responsible for approximately five million deaths worldwide every year. By 2020, WHO expects the worldwide death toll to reach 10 million, with 17.7 percent of the deaths in developed countries.
