Stop Smoking with Zyban (Bupropion) or Chantix (Varenicline) and Lemonaid Health
At Lemonaid Health, we just added the STOP SMOKING service to our growing list of services for Lemonaid Health! If safe and appropriate, we can prescribe either a 3 month supply of bupropion (Zyban) or varenicline (Chantix) which can double the success rate to quit. The STOP SMOKING service is now available for patients in the following states: AZ, CA, CT, FL, GA, IL, MD, MI, MO, NY, OH, OR, PA, RI, SC, VA, and WA. Other states coming soon!
On average it takes a person about 5 times to quit smoking for good. So don’t give up if you’ve tried successfully but still find yourself back to smoking!
In my experience, many people who quit successfully do so cold-turkey or without any prescription or over-the-counter nicotine gum or patch. That being said, it doesn’t matter how you stop smoking. The key is that you stop smoking!
The body doesn’t real distinguish the difference between good habits or bad habits. It just knows habits – trigger, routine, reward. Also, if you succeed but then fail, don’t beat yourself up on failing. You are human! Take the failures as an opportunity to learn what you might do differently next time. Pick yourself up and try again!
Two great books I found incredibly helpful in providing these insights are The Willpower Instinct: How Self-Control Works, Why It Matters, and What You Can Do to Get More of It and The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business.
Finally, people who stop smoking find having support helps. Check out the National Cancer Institute’s Smoke Free website. Take a moment to speak to one of their coaches for free! . You might want to also try their Smoke Free Texting program which might nudge you into healthier behaviors!
Stay tuned! Feedback welcome.
