A Number of devices are available to help in the effort to quit smoking. Nicotine patches are small, nicotine-containing adhesive substances that are applied to the skin. The nicotine is slowly absorbed through the skin and enters the blood stream. Over time, the nicotine dose is lessened and eventually the craving for nicotine is alleviated. Nicotine gum works in a similar manner, providing small doses of nicotine when chewed.

The benefits of smoking cessation include the immediate reduction of health hazards for the smoker, lower health insurance premiums, and easier admission to social activities and institutions that ban smoking. Nonetheless, to quit smoking is difficult, most likely because smokers crave the effect of the nicotine in the smoke. In a 1988 report, the U.S. surgeon general declared nicotine to be an addictive drug comparable to other addictive substances in its ability to induce dependence. The report also called the monetary and human costs far greater than those attributable to cocaine, alcohol, or heroin. Some recent evidence supports this claim, indicating that the overall mortality attributable to tobacco smoking in the United States is about 20 times that of the mortality due to all other addictive drugs combined.
