The best way to quit smoking is to go cold turkey, according to a new study that found people who quit at once are more likely to be successful than those who cut down gradually on the number of cigarettes they smoke.

Dr. John Hughes of the University of Vermont, who wasn’t involved in the British study, told Reuters that those who try to quit gradually are often more addicted and have failed in attempts to go cold turkey several times before.

He said,

“The decision to quit for most smokers is a sudden one, that often occurs because something happens to motivate them. With abrupt cessation, they can act on the decision to quit immediately, while still highly motivated (in fact half of smokers quit on the same day they decide to quit).”

That’s good to know.
