What are ways to quit tobacco?

ANSWER

To help you quit tobacco, your dentist or doctor may be able to help ease nicotine cravings with medications like nicotine gum and patches. You can buy some of these over the counter; others require a prescription.

Smoking cessation classes and support groups are often used with drug therapy. Hospitals, employers, and health insurance companies offer these programs. Ask your doctor or dentist for information.

Herbal remedies, hypnosis, and acupuncture are other treatments that may help you quit.
