Why is it so difficult to stop smoking? - A Guide to Stop Smoking

The main reason for that is nicotine. Nicotine is a substance found in tobacco smoke which gives you a ‘high’ when inhaled. It is also an intensely powerful stimulant which causes you to become addicted to smoking.

If you have ever wondered why people find it difficult to stop smoking then this is the answer why. Nicotine makes you feel good about yourself and confident in a social situation. It improves your concentration, speeds up your metabolism (which is especially attractive to women) and reduces stress levels.

But these are short term effects only. Your body adapts quickly to nicotine which means an ever increasing amount is required in order to satisfy these demands. If you go a period of time without a cigarette then cravings and/or withdrawal symptoms occur, such as headaches, nausea and irritability. This means that you are more than likely to carry on smoking rather than experience these unpleasant symptoms.

It’s a powerful addiction but it can be broken. Many people manage to stop smoking, even if it takes them several attempts to do so. As long as you are determined and have enough willpower to do so then you will be able to quit.
