Free nicotine patches to quit smoking
Australian Health minister Stephen Robertson has announced that patients coming to Queensland Public hospital will receive free nicotine patches or gums in order to start awareness to quit smoking. This free nicotine replacement program will help the public to relieve from their smoking habit which is one of the leading cause of preventable death. Smoking has the dubious distinction of affecting all the systems from head to foot. Cigarette smoke contains about 4,000 chemical agents, including over 60 carcinogens including substances, such as carbon monoxide, tar, arsenic, cyanide, benzene, formaldehyde, methanol, acetylene, ammonia, lead.

I have been a smoker for a number of years and had several attempts at giving it up.My most successful was with nicotine patches which were cheaper than smoking but still expensive considering i ate more.What i cannot understand is with all the hype and laws about smoking why wont the compulsory private medical insurance companies helping we have paid into for the last ten years ,some people pay all their life and when it comes to a helping hand ,"no-no".I notice the fine print also about pricing of these funds is higher for smokers.I agree that smoking is a filthy habit that is harming me but whos going to help.

Why anyone would want to put more of the chemical into their body that they are trying to releases themselves from just astounds me! This is insanity! There is a product call Smoke Away that is very successful to assist in eliminating smoking from your life. I have known a number of people who have had success with it. It is not expensive. My husband did it and put his cigarettes down and has not picked them up since. The program cost about $60 US. It had an herbal detox pill and homeopathic pellets to control cravings and a CD with an audio guided program to motivate you. The herbal detox part is very important. As you detox he poisons out quiting becomes easier. Do a search on the net for "Smoke Away" You have fantastic herbalists in India and many homeoapths also. It should be easy to replicate this program. Also. you can purchase parts of this program separately, just the herbs, just the homeoapthic remedy, as it seems some people need one part or another more than others.
