I just thought I would pass this along. It is about a blood test that may be available in the next couple of years to help us decide which method of quitting is best for us.

There is much more there of course but it shows that they are studying why some of us have a harder time quitting smoking then others.

"The study "helps us understand why some people are able to quit smoking more easily than others," Dr. Uhl said. It may one day allow clinicians to match smokers with particular cessation treatments."
