Choosing tools to help you quit such as long-acting nicotine replacement therapy or medications can reduce the frequency and severity of cravings.

Studies suggest that vaping nicotine may help a greater proportion of people quit smoking than nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) or counseling alone. See:
