NRT Failure Rate Soars to 98.4%

April 3, 2009 - PRLog -- New revelations confirm that Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) has a documented long term failure rate of 98.4%.

NRT is the Government’s recommended treatment for its smoking cessation programmes and is heavily funded by the tax-payer.

Pro-choice group Freedom2choose are alarmed at these revelations and the obvious waste of tax-payers’ funds.   Colin Grainger, vice chairman of the group states, “NRT products are obviously unfit for the purpose for which they are sold.  This is fraud, wrong and immoral.”

Freedom2choose have previously highlighted alternative ways to successfully quit smoking, including the Allen Carr method, with a documented success rate of 58% for those choosing to give up.  The Allen Carr method even promises a money back guarantee to those that don’t successfully quit.  

“More worryingly,” continues Colin Grainger “is the shock that the scientists who put the study together even work for the manufacturers of NRT.  This clearly shows how the Big Pharmaceutical companies influence the outcome of studies.”

The revelations were originally made public by long-term anti-smoking campaigner Professor Michael Siegel who states “With a long-term smoking cessation percentage of only 1.6%, one can hardly call NRT treatment an "effective" intervention.  In fact, the logical conclusion from this paper is that NRT was a dismal intervention.”
