Giving Smoking Up – The Side Effects

The vast majority of smokers are interested in giving smoking up. Unfortunately, it is a well known fact that this is not easy to accomplish. Most smokers have tried on several occasions to quit, without success. This is because nicotine addiction is one of the most difficult of all addictions to beat. It takes a lot of willpower to cope with the side effects of giving smoking up, because these are many and varied. Mostly the side effects are psychological, but some of them are actually physical. On the premise that to be forewarned is to be forearmed, I give you some of the more common side effects below.

  • Chesty cough.
  • Ulcers of the mouth.
  • Headaches.
  • Dizziness.
  • Decrease in blood sugar levels, leading to cravings for sweet foods.
  • Depression.
  • Insomnia, leading to daytime tiredness.
  • Feeling of restlessness.
  • Concentration difficulties.
  • Irritability.

As I stated above, these are some of the most common side effects, there are more less common ones, but they are too numerous to mention. Is it any wonder that most people fail numerous times before becoming successful in giving smoking up?

To be successful you need to be 100% serious in your approach. You must accept the fact that you are going to experience some level of discomfort, for some people this will be a trip to hell and back! But, please believe me when I tell you that these side effects will eventually pass.

Do not be tempted to look for physical support to get you through this period of discomfort. When I refer to physical support I mean NRT (nicotine replacement therapy), I say this because although in the short term, patches, gums, electronic cigarettes and the like might seem to work, in the long term they generally do not. vape
