The facts are that anybody can find it easy to give up smoking if they find the right motivation and the approach that works best for them. The idea that quitting smoking has to be hard is a fiction. There is no doubt that an increasing number of people are finding it easy to stop smoking, although they may have tried one or twice in the past and found it difficult. There is an easy way for everybody, but these are all different.
There are many fictitious claims made about stopping smoking, for example that it takes 5 or 10 years to stop properly, but there is no scientific evidence for any of these claims. However, these sorts of claims create a problem, because even if they have no foundation, they set the potential non-smoker up with negative expectations at the outset, which is disastrous. You need to discard everything you've ever heard about stopping smoking being difficult. What have you got to lose?
