Because of it's very addictive nature, when you try to stop smoking, or using tobacco in any form, you will most likely suffer from nicotine craving. The withdrawal symptoms and craving for the nicotine in tobacco are the two major obstacles in your path to quit smoking.
Smoking is a deadly habit.
As we all know by now, smoking is a deadly habit that affects millions of people and is a major problem in the world today. As a smoker, people try to avoid you because your hair and clothes may smell of cigarette smoke. This constant reminder will become very clear to you once you have not smoked for a while. Smoking and the health problems that can come for long term smoking can interfere with the quality of your life. Giving up smoking is no easy task and nicotine cravings are easily succumbed to if you don't have a good support system.
Quitting smoking takes a huge amount of self dicipline and determination. Quitting the use of tobacco causes your body to change in a number of ways. Quitting this habit is not just as simple as going cold turkey for a few weeks. The fear of gaining weight causes many smokers to avoid quitting or relapse into smoking. There is no easy way to quit smoking that works for everyone.
Nicotine is the culprit.
Nicotine is the substance in tobacco known to cause the addiction. Nicotine is a powerfully psychoactive drug and users become physically and psychologically dependent. However, nicotine withdrawal can be treated with the right medications.
Nicotine Replacement Therapy or NRT.
Nicotine replacement Therapy (NRT) can reduce the severity of your withdrawal symptoms and cravings. People using NRT have had twice the sucess rate in quitting smoking as those folks who did not use any medications. NRT medications are available in the forms of gums, patches and nasal sprays. Nicotine blood levels obtained by the use of the 21 mg patch are around 40% of the levels found in a pack and a half a day smoker. Nicotine gum was the first NRT product approved by the FDA and is commonly sold over the counter in 2 and 4 mg doses. Nicotine patch and sprays are often prescribed by a physician.
Take care of your health.
Always seek the advice of a qualified doctor for any health concerns, questions about drug interactions with the nicotine therapy, and the use of other supplements to your diet. Patients may receive counseling to follow a healthy diet and to start a regular exercise program to help control any weight gain. Finally, start cutting down on the number of times you go outside to stand on one foot in the cold to smoke. You feel like an idiot doing something that is going to destroy your health and shorten your life if you keep it up.
