Our expert says:
Yep, sadly cigarettes are probably the most clevely designed and marketed addictive substance available. But fortunately, the habit can be kicked. The problem would be finding the mosty cost-effective way of achieving this. One newer method that some find very helpful is the med Zyban ( which also happens to be an effective antidepressant ) which seems to reduce the craving and help people stop and stay stopped. Patches can also help, as can CBT counselling. And I don't get the point about cost --- ANY effective treatment would save you a whole lot of money ( add up all the costs of smoking !)
