Nicotine withdrawals

When trying to quit smoking the biggest obstacle is nicotine withdrawal. Withdrawals are both physical and emotional. Physically the body reacts to the lack of nicotine and emotionally you are faced with changing your behavior. Both needs must be faced in order to successfully quit smoking. A smoker will normally feel physical withdrawals only a few hours after their last cigarette, but it is even greatest after 2-3 days. Symptoms include: dizziness, depression, frustration, anger, anxiety, irritability, sleep disturbances, concentration problems, headaches, and increased appetite that can last up to a few weeks. It is these symptoms that cause smokers to easily relapse after trying to quit smoking cold turkey.

There are many products out there to help you quit smoking, but when they only address one side of quitting, such as the physical side, you end up having a greater chance of failure.

To reduce this chance it is important to find a program that has products that contain ingredients designed to help you fight the physical withdrawals of quitting and that help you combat the emotional and behavioral side of quitting as well.
Natural ways to deal with nicotine withdrawals include exercise and getting more rest. Try taking a multi vitamin like CigArrest VitaGuard Smoker’s Vitamins that can help offset nicotine withdrawal symptoms and replenish depleted nutrients. Try CigArrest all natural tablets that include ingredients like Peruvian Bark (which helps to treat edginess, nervousness, and indigestion), Spurge Laurel (which helps sleeping problems), Calcium Phosphate (which helps treat headaches), and Nux Vomica (which helps treat insomnia and irritability). Also, chewing gum like CigArrest Gum, which also has ingredients to help offset nicotine cravings, can help you replace the oral fixation of smoking.
