Challenges to the Success of Smoking Cessation

If you are a smoker, then you have developed a nicotine addiction. As a result any effort that you put-out, in order to achieve smoking cessation, can require the leaping of a number of barriers. Two hours after you finish your last cigarette, you can expect to undergo noticeable mood changes. Such mood changes could well cause you to have trouble with the performance of everyday tasks. Addiction to nicotine gives rise to physiological changes, changes that could alter the mood changes and performance ability of you the smoker. If you have given thought to abandoning your habit, you might want to take a self survey. By assessing the results of such a survey, you can know for sure whether or not you are addicted to nicotine.You should consider these questions: Do you smoke every day? Do you smoke in order to build-up your self confidence? Do you smoke so that you feel less pressure in your life?A yes answer to the above questions signals addition to nicotine. Still, your love for smoking might push you to point out that a three question test can not be seen as an adequate tool for the uncovering of nicotine addiction. In fact, the self-survey on smoking is much longer than three questions. You the smoker must answer additional questions. Does you recall going to the store at some inconvenient time, in order to purchase cigarettes? Did you ever engage in some unusual activity in order to obtain a pack of cigarettes? A yes answer to the above questions sends a warning, a warning that any attempt at smoking cessation will not provide you with a way to sail smoothly into the ranks of the nonsmokers.Do you feel angry if you have been called “a bother,” because of the smoke coming from your cigarette? Do you admit to having an emotional or physical discomfort whenever you can not smoke? Have you ever burned a hole in a piece of clothing, a blanket, a carpet, a piece of furniture or a section of the car interior?A yes answer to the prior questions can confirm any suspicion that you or others might have concerning a nicotine addiction. Groups that hope to free smokers from their dependence on nicotine have focused on that addiction. Way back in July of 1989, the American Lung Association sponsored a national Non-dependence Day. That was on July 5th, the day after

Niccine: a new approach to quit smoking This is a different approach to the quit smoking problem similiar to by the drug maker Pfizer’s Chantix

Swedish anti-nicotine vaccine to be tested in Nordic countries “A Swedish vaccine against nicotine will be tested on 400 people in three Nordic countries,” Heavy smokers who would like to quit, will get counselling along with the new drug, initial test will run for 4 months.

Niccine is supposed to help the immune system build antibodies against nicotine. Interesting approach to the problem: Niccine will latch onto the incoming nicotine and preventing it from reaching the brain’s reward system, thereby preventing the smoker from getting that addictive smoking “kick” or hit.

Niccine, has been developed over the course of 10 years by Swedish researchers at the Karolinska Institute, under the guidance of professor Torgny Svensson who founded Independent Pharmaceutica.

This is a different approach to the quit smoking problem used by Pfizer’s Chantix should I use Chantix or wait for Niccine ?
