Whether you are a chain smoker or a teen smoker, quitting can be tough. However, there are different options to break the addiction. For somebody who has been smoking all through their life, it can be the toughest things to do on earth, but with a resolve to overcome addiction, you can take steps to manage your tobacco cravings and kick the habit that has been making your life worse.
Smoking is both a physical and psychological addiction. When you smoke, the nicotine from tobacco gives your body a temporary yet addictive high and a feel good effect on brain. If you suddenly try to eliminate nicotine, your body experiences withdrawal symptoms. You are at a high risk of experiencing cravings due to nicotine’s so-called feel good effect on the body and brain. Since nicotine gives you high, your brain might become used to tobacco for coping with depression, stress, and anxiety. To quit smoking without a chance to relapse, it is important to address the addictive habits.
Introspect to identify the prime cause that contributed to your smoking habit. Are there specific times when you feel the need to smoke? Do you crave for smoking when you are depressed or feeling bored? Do you smoke to overcome stress or some unpleasant feelings? Do you often visit certain places that are a hub of smokers or are associated with smoking? Is your smoking habit linked to any of your other habits?
