But momentary unpleasantness is a wiser choice to a future filled with ill health issues. Nicotine withdrawal symptoms often mimic a cold or a mild case of the flu and are temporary. Help to overcome withdrawal symptoms and quit smoking is available in the form of nicotine replacement, other medical treatments, group therapy, and counseling.
Varenicline is only the second nicotine-free smoking cessation drug to gain Food and Drug Administration approval.

Nicotine replacement therapies like nicotine transdermal patches, nicotine gum and other products can help in the cessation smoking program though the relapse rate has been found to be high for people following such a program.
