To be successful, you need to deal with both of these problems: no nicotine in your brain and no smoking in your daily routine. It can be difficult to do both at the same time:
- Smoking cessation medications help to cope with the first problem by reducing cravings and withdrawal symptoms, such as irritability, difficulty concentrating, and difficulty sleeping. Learn how smoking cessation drugs work.
- This allows you to focus on the second problem: to understand how you spend your day doing all the activities related to smoking. The good news is that there are many simple things you can do to make it easier.
