    To the people who state "giving up is easy" or "people who don't quit lack willpower" seem to not recognise is that a) nicotine dependence level is in part determined by genetics it would seem, it is harder for some than for others b) there are people the tobacco control groups call "chippers" these people mysteriously can quit without difficulty and they are NOT the majority and c) to quit you need lots of motivation and the ability to bear the withdrawal symptoms which can last for weeks for some people. Some people have real and medical reasons for not having these ingredients. The people who say quitting is easy by definition were not heavily addicted, therefore how can they speak to how majority of existing long-term smokers can or should quit? I have been off smoking for over a year now due to e-cigarettes and they have been a godsend. People who cut down or switch to harm reduction strategies like long-term NRT, smokeless tobacco or e-cigs should be congratulated not shamed!
