According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 14% of adults in the United States report smoking cigarettes. Although the harmful health consequences of this habit are well-known, even the most self-disciplined individuals find it difficult to quit smoking due to tobacco and nicotine dependence. 

Fortunately, it's not all bad news. On average, three out of five people who attempt to quit smoking are successful. Some choose to use medications or chemical replacement therapies, like nicotine gum or patches, while others prefer more natural, chemical-free methods. Overall, success often relies on finding an approach to smoking cessation that feels right for each individual and provides the support they need.
