According to WHO reports, tobacco is responsible for the death of roughly 6 million people each year. This high number isn’t too surprising when you consider the fact that tobacco kills up to half of its users. When you look at those numbers, it boggles the mind why anyone continues to smoke past their impressionable teenage years.

And if you’re like most smokers…you have tried to quit smoking…lots of times. And no one is saying that it’s going to be easy, but there are several cessation techniques that can be of help to you. E-cigs may be of help, and so may be counseling or medication.

E-cigarettes, currently under much scrutiny for their health implications, may nonetheless do you good; a 2011 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine suggested that more than 30% of E-cigarette users quit smoking after around 6 months of making the switch.quit smoking
