What to Expect When Quitting Smoking
Cigarettes and other smoking devices can be tough to quit, due to the hold nicotine has on your body. Nicotine withdrawal can cause a lot of symptoms such as irritability, anxiety and fatigue in the immediate aftermath. In addition to the treatments our service provides, we recommend utilizing peripherals to slowly wean yourself off of cigarettes such as nicotine patches and nicotine gum.
Your Different Treatment Options
In order to quit smoking, you may find it necessary to pinpoint why you smoke in the first place. What type of situations provoke you enough that you feel the need to smoke? Does smoking relieve anxiety in you? We will work with you to find less harmful ways of dealing with your problems to avoid smoking in the future.
Smoking may be provoked by anxiety-producing situations. If you feel the urge to smoke before a big work presentation, talking to a large crowd at a party or other situations, it may help to learn some relaxation therapy. We’ll work with you to find the muscle relaxation technique
A notable casualty in smokers is their ability to exercise. Due to weakened lungs, a person who smokes may find it particularly hard to do things such as run a mile.* As nicotine withdrawal can make you more irritable, using some energy in light exercise may help you get through the initial quitting process.*
