Genes may Influence Quitting

Here is an interesting article in the Washington Post that states in a recent research project, different genes were identified that may make it easier to decide to use Nicotine Replacement Products or Zyban or Chantix. It seems different gene pattern respond differently. The take away message is that if you tried one product and you weren't able to quit, Blame it on your genes and try, try again. There is no failure to quit until you stop trying. If one method doesn't work, try something else until you find the right combination of medication, behavioral modification and support for you to be successful.
