Why is it so difficult to quit smoking? Heart.org says it is because of the addictive nicotine in cigarettes. It is reportedly as addictive as cocaine or heroin but a quitting smoker can easily purchase a cigarette from a pharmacy. This makes it even more difficult to quit.
A smoker usually experiences a release of dopamine that makes smoking pleasurable. As they quit, they may experience various withdrawal symptoms from the decrease of this dopamine release such as:
- Feeling anxious or depressed
- Trouble focusing
Other serious symptoms include tingling in the hands and feet, nausea, insomnia, and others.
While it may be difficult, it is not impossible to quit smoking. You too can quit this endless cycle.
