Smoking Cessation
Bookmark and Share
Conventional wisdom says it takes five to seven attempts for most smokers to quit, but a new study published in BMJ Open says those estimates may be low. Researchers compiled data on more than 1,200 adult smokers in Canada and found that the real average number of quit attempts before succeeding may be closer to 30. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Jon Ebbert, internal medicine specialist and co-director of the Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Center, offers some strategies to stop smoking. Also on the program ear, nose and throat specialist Dr. Matthew Carlson explains how hearing loss can be treated with cochlear implants. And, surgeon Dr. Michael Kendrick has an update on advances in laparoscopic pancreatic surgery.
