Nicotine Addiction

Author: Ric Bai

Isn’t it crazy knowing that there are over 4,000 chemical compounds present in inhaled smoke and yet you tell yourself, like so many others keep telling themselves, that you like smoking and that you don’t want to quit?

It’s not your fault.

Smoking an addiction for a reason, because it is one.

Smoking appeals not only on a physical level, but on a strong emotional one too. This is why it is so difficult to quit, but you can do it! You need a program that doesn’t just help you deal with one side of the addition, but both. Studies show that programs that address both sides of the issue have a higher success rate.

There are many reasons why one would consider quitting smoking: for family, for health reasons, high costs, or maybe all of the above.

Why the addiction?

Your brain produces chemicals that help regulate your moods and if your brain doesn't’t produce enough of these chemicals then you can end up with irritability and bad moods. Nicotine helps to stimulate the production of these chemicals. These chemicals include nor epinephrine, which regulates alertness and arousal, dopamine, which is part of your brains pleasure mechanism, and beta endorphin, which helps to lessen anxiety and pain.

Unfortunately these reactions to smoking are short lived and eventually you crave those feeling again. And sooner or later you trick your mind and body into thinking that smoking is the only way to induce these feelings.

The emotional side of addiction

Thinking back, you find that cigarettes have helped you in many situations: cigarettes have helped you relax in periods of time when you felt stressed or helped keep you more alert in periods of time when you needed to stay awake (like driving home late at night or when you needed to complete a project). Cigarettes might have helped you socially at a party, coffee house, or at work because you automatically have that link to other smokers. When you needed it, it was there for you.

The truth of the matter is you don’t need it as much as you think. You have the ability to be a confident, happy person, without the mood effects of cigarettes. But first you need to quit smoking. Nicotine can stay in your body between 2-4 days once you’ve given up cigarettes. This is why nicotine programs that offer to help you quit smoking can prolong your need for nicotine because your body will continue craving it.

Nicotine withdrawals

When trying to quit smoking the biggest obstacle is nicotine withdrawal. Withdrawals are both physical and emotional. Physically the body reacts to the lack of nicotine and emotionally you are faced with changing your behavior. Both needs must be faced in order to successfully quit smoking. A smoker will normally feel physical withdrawals only a few hours after their last cigarette, but it is even greatest after 2-3 days. Symptoms include: dizziness, depression, frustration, anger, anxiety, irritability, sleep disturbances, concentration problems, headaches, and increased appetite that can last up to a few weeks. It is these symptoms that cause smokers to easily relapse after trying to quit smoking cold turkey.

There are many products out there to help you quit smoking, but when they only address one side of quitting, such as the physical side, you end up having a greater chance of failure.

To reduce this chance it is important to find a program that has products that contain ingredients designed to help you fight the physical withdrawals of quitting and that help you combat the emotional and behavioral side of quitting as well.

It amazes me how many businesses I see everyday without an open sign. I often wonder do they realize just how much money they are letting slip through their hands. I once read a quote and it said, "A business with no sign is a sign of no business." If you think about it, it is really true.
