People who have resolved to quit smoking in the new year will be more likely to kick the habit if they work with a counselor.
Researchers in England studied 10,000 people who tried to quit smoking in the past year. They found those who worked with a counselor, and used nicotine replacement products, were three times more likely to successfully quit than those who tried on their own.
Smokers who used nicotine gum and patches without advice from a health professional were no more likely to quit than those who went cold turkey.
