Why do Smokers Find it Hard to Quit Smoking?

Are you smoking cigarettes or not?


There are many complications you can get from smoking, so if smoking is bad for you, why is it so hard to quit?

I asked my one of my friends,

"What happens if you stop smoking for just one day?"

"My lips and my mouth feels very dry. I can't think straight too, I feel like I'm having a bad head ache." he replied.

Smoking behavior becomes closely linked with daily activities and cues such as smoking after a meal, when socializing with friends, when consuming alcohol, to "take a break" and when under stress to relax.


So why is it hard to quit smoking?

Nicotine is highly addictive, it stimulates pleasure centers in the brain. As with heroin or other addictive drugs, the body and mind quickly get used to the nicotine in cigarettes. If discontinued, the smoker will experience symptoms of physical withdrawal, making the person want to start smoking again to stop the said symptoms.

Smokers may experience the following typical nicotine withdrawal symptoms including (but are not limited to):

  • Flu-like aches and discomfort

  • Cravings for a smoke

  • Irritability

  • Sleep problems

  • Fatigue

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Headache

  • Cough, chest tightness

  • Sore throat

  • Sore tongue, gums


Smoking is dangerous to our health. Over time, smoking leads to various health problems. The only thing that really helps is staying away from these products.

I am not a smoker but I am a concerned individual too. Even nonsmokers can still have complications too from Second hand smoke. Please take care our health always because " Health is our greatest Wealth."
