With the new year of 2018 settling in, many smokers across the world make it their mission to quit smoking for good as part of their New Year resolution. While some are able to quit forever, others are only able to last several weeks, or even days.

A popular relapse time when the smoking makes it's return is right around the two-week or three-week time period, which is about to arrive.

There are three popular ways to improve your chances of staying away from smoking: Nicotine replacements, such as gums, patches and lozenges; medical assistance with a prescription; and counseling.

In the long term plan, counseling has shown to be one of the most effective methods, while the other options can help out in short-term situations.

Quitting smoking can improve life quality in many way with a longer life expectancy, reduced secondhand smoke exposure to those surrounding you, better breathing ability, and reduced costs.
