Smoking cessation without aids

Australian researchers, after reviewing studies on smoking cessation, found that the majority of people who successfully quit smoking did so without aids at all.

Simon Chapman and Ross MacKenzie from the School of Public Health at the University of Sydney in Australia examined 511 English-language studies from 2007 to 2008. To do this, they scoured the medical database “Medline” for the words “quit smoking”.

They have now published their results in the specialist magazine “PloSMedicine”. PloS stands for Public Library of Science and is a non-profit organization of physicians and scientists who make scientific and medical articles publicly available worldwide. Chapman and McKenzie found that two-thirds to three-quarters of those who successfully stopped smoking got by without any outside help.

There are also similar figures from German-speaking countries:
In a 2008 survey on prevention behavior in Germany, more than half of 491 smokers surveyed intended to quit smoking. 71% of the men and women surveyed said they would “just stop smoking”. The remaining third of smokers said they needed help quitting.

One of the methods that is not one of the tools of an industry and has stood out with a fairly high success rate in smoking cessation in recent years is hypnosis. Serious hypnotherapy was gradually able to break free from pure show hypnotists. In 2006 this led to the scientific recognition of the method by the Scientific Advisory Board on Psychotherapy.

The Australian researchers also see a danger that too many advertising for aids to smoking cessation would unsettle people. People might believe that they would no longer be able to stop on their own. Because smoking cessation is also a big economic market. (Thorsten Fischer, naturopath osteopathy, 02/09/2010)
