It is not easy to get rid of the smoking habit. This is not only to cigarette smoking but all other addiction. Trying to quit smoking has specific symptoms that arise due to withdrawing from the habit, and these symptoms make the process seem much more difficult and people try to shy way from even taking the first step to stop smoking.

From the point of addiction view, just like heroin and cocaine, nicotine is highly addictive. The effects of the material released into your bloodstream after inhalation is of course less pronounced in the case of nicotine, but it’s still is as addictive as heroin and cocaine. Smoking brings along with it several diseases, and is definitely a risky

and potentially harmful habit which should be left as soon as possible. The more you smoke, the more you expose your body to addiction hence becoming prone to related diseases.

Basically, during the act of smoking, a lot of substances which are harmful to us are released inside our body. These substances damage our vital organs like our heart, stomach, liver, lungs and brain. The substances which are toxic reduce the amount of oxygen though out the body causing the immune system to be adversely affected.  A weakened immune system makes it probable for diseases to develop and thrive easily.

The two most common diseases that happen due to smoking are lung cancer and heart complications. It is unfortunate that the majority of smokers at some point in their lives suffer from one or both of these. When we smoke, nicotine resides in the cells of our body. As a result the liver and kidneys have trouble metabolizing the toxic residue which builds up instead of being eliminated. Therefore even after, say, 12 hours after a person has last smoked, high levels of nicotine can still be found in the smoker’s body system.

No one said kicking the smoking habit is easy, but there are certain drugs that help in the process: Nicorette patches and gum are popular examples. Chantix is also well known. Chantix is a heavily addictive antidepressant which has some serious and harmful side effects to boot, hence is used under the supervision of a doctor for some relief from depression and anxiety related to withdrawal.  Later in this e Book, we will talk about various ways that can help you to stop smoking using the various aids that are available. Some aids are over the counter and others require a doctor. The best way to go though is to seek the help of a professional for the best prescription.
