Do you Know Why it’s Difficult to Quit Smoking?

Many people would have tried quitting cigarettes only to come back to it, sometime later. Have you ever wondered why?

Discontinuation of cigarettes results in withdrawal symptoms. This can prompt you to smoke again simply to get out of the withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms vary from person to person. You may feel ill as if you have the flu, suffer from aches and pains, and the craving for a cigarette will be incredible. Because you are unable to get a cigarette, you will become irritable and have all sorts of other problems that include the inability to sleep and fatigue. You will also have difficulty concentrating without lighting up, and headaches etc. may plague you.
