It is not your fault that you are still smoking. You probably started before your brain was fully developed, and the tobacco industry deliberately made cigarettes as addictive as possible.
You are not alone. 4.6 million Canadians, 15% of the population, still smoke.
If you continue to smoke the long-term health risks are very serious. If you quit, the poisons leave your body and the risks eventually fade away.
Quitting smoking is hard and usually takes multiple attempts, but it can be done.
Quitting "cold turkey" or using nicotine replacement therapy such as the patch or gum are the safest options and work for some people.
Vaping has risks, but is much safer than smoking. Done properly, quitting by vaping has a higher success rate than using nicotine replacement therapy (NRT).
If you have not been able to quit cigarettes cold turkey or with NRT, then you should try to quit by vaping.
