Quitting Smoking, a Tough Task

A lot of people try to quit smoking several times, but eventually succeed. Michael Hernandez, Critical Care & Pulmonary Medicine Physician at South Miami Hospital, says quitting smoking is really though.

“That’s why I tell adolescents don’t get started, because the earlier that you’re addicted the harder it is to quit because your brain has not yet formed”.

He puts out quitting smoking fails 60% of the cases with the best option they have: a medication called varenicline.
