Smoking Cessation

While giving up smoking can be hard, it’s important to note that smoking is very harmful to our health. But you can quit smoking with Nelsons Pharmacy smoking cessation service in Tredegar & Caerphilly. Smoking rates in the UK are dropping faster than ever. However, there are still many adults who smoke in the UK.

Why is it difficult to stop smoking?

Smoking cessation is hard, even for those who really want to quit. This is simply because the nicotine in tobacco is so addictive and generates cravings and withdrawal symptoms. The withdrawal from nicotine is responsible for making smoking cessation a difficult process. The most common withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Restlessness
  • Fatigue
  • Urge to smoke
  • Weight gain
  • Concentration problems
  • Irritability

Helpful tips to quit smoking include:

  • Support from friends. Ask them not to smoke around you.
  • Don’t replace cigarettes with food. Instead, take a five-minute walk during your cigarette break to minimise the cravings.
  • Try saving the money you would have spent on cigarettes in a home bank to track your progress.
  • Be positive – every day without a cigarette is a step towards good health.
  • E-cigarettes may come in handy but are not a risk-free alternative to smoking cessation.
