Smoking is a physical and psychological addiction. Smoking is injurious to health because of the risk it imposes on health. Nicotine makes the brain release signals of “being good”. That’s why smoking is addictive as it’s the way of coping from stress, depression, boredom, and anxiety.
When a person decides to quit smoking, there are some nicotine withdrawal symptoms faces by him that generally appear 2 to 3 days of quitting that include craving for smoking, tremors, insomnia and anxiety. But these are temporary and go away after some time. Managing the craving for smoking is very important, as this can be done by distracting oneself and getting out of the tempting situation. Other than these, a person can maintain to have a balance ahealthy diet with lots of fluids. Making a routine of exercise help in getting on the right track. Medication and therapies also work that include both nicotine replacement and non-nicotine medications. It is also the responsibility of friends and family to provide motivational support to the person who tries to step away from smoking as he needs the encouragement to get rid ofthe bad habit. Support can help a person to lead an addiction-free normal life.
