Debunking Smoking Myths
The first myths about smoking is that nicotine replacement therapy does not work, but Dr. Veronica Palmero-Gonzalez, Pulmonologist with South Miami Hospital, says it works. “There’s plenty of research showing that when you add these methods to the plan when quitting, they increase their rate of successful and also decrease the chances of smoking again in the near future.”
Another myth is that you cannot use anything else when you are using one NRT product. The doctor says it is false. “We do recommend using both the long-acting which is a nicotine patch and the quick release, like the nicotine gum and it is completely safe to do so,” she points out.
