A new study finds a person is more likely to quit smoking if they work with a counselor.
Researchers studied 10,000 people who tried to quit smoking in the past year.
They found people who worked with a counselor and used nicotine replacement products were three times more likely to successfully quit than those who tried on their own.
Smokers who used nicotine gum and patches without advice from a professional were no more likely to quit than those who went cold turkey.
