In last weeks" WSJ,there was a small article on "Kicking the Habit". It was written by Sarah Slobin and the source was CDC Office of the Surgeon General; Stephan Hess,James M. McPherson(Lincoln). The small text is as follows: Chances after 6 months a smoker will have quit using these methods alone: Chantix 33.2%,Nasal Spray 26.7%,Patch 26.5%, Gum 26.1%,inhaler 24.8%.
The figures we use are quite different. What are the correct figures and what source can we quote to back up our stats?
