Study shows that combination of treatments best way for smokers to kick the habit

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A combination of treatments may be the best way for smokers to kick the habit.

That's according to a new study that followed nearly 450 smokers. They either used the nicotine patch or a placebo with the drug Chantix. Researchers found using both the nicotine patch and anti-smoking medication was most effective.

The combination helped about 20 percent more people quit than using Chantix alone.
