How successful is our method?
Prof. Gilbert Norden, from the Institute of Sociology at the University of Vienna researched our treatment method independently. The results speak for themselves!
- 63% of the participants are successfully smoke free at the end of therapy!
- An additional 12% reduced their use of tabacco at an average of 13,4 cigarettes per day.
- These results lead to the conclusion that, 75% of the participants respond positive to our treatment method.
Our treatment method is also supported by further results, especially considering that 90% of the participants are heavy smokers. Compared to other studies: R. Schoberberger and M. Kunze report in their 1999 published study “Nikotinabhängigkeit. Diagnostik und Therapie” a meta analysis of 28 investigations using nicotine chewing gum, -patches and -spray with the results being that 15% of the smokers profit from the nicotine substitution methods and quit smoking. In another study with 286 smokers using Nicorette-Inhalators they mention a success rate of 28% – 2 weeks after treatment. We find, these results confirm our treatment method extraordinarily and can give hope to many people who want to kick the nicotine habit.
Documented success is important in order for you to have insight into our work:
I have good news and bad news! L. actually did quit smoking–he has not smoked since the session! I, unfortunately, did not last very long – only about one week….I was wondering if there would be the possibility of having my reinforcement session some time tomorrow?– W.K.
I am still a non-smoker. Thanks a lot for all your help.– B.H.
