Cigarette smoking accounts for 7 million deaths annually worldwide mainly due to cancer, heart disease and smoking related lung disease. Giving up smoking at any age has major short-term and long-term health benefits. Quitting and staying away from cigarettes is difficult, but not impossible. Smoking is an addiction and giving up smoking requires individual approach. The chance of giving up smoking double or triples with the use of medications and counselling. There are several medications that may help you stop smoking.
