Quitting Smoking Causes Depression

There are many health effects of smoking, both physical and mental, and when you quit smoking you are going to have additional barriers to overcome. Nicotine is a powerful drug that regulates a person’s mood, it can act as a depressant or a stimulant, depending on your mood and the time of the day.

Studies have shown that people who suffer from major depression before they quit smoking may encounter an episode after quitting. However, people that haven’t struggled with depression in the past are unlikely to have a major episode. If a minor episode of depression occurs it will likely start the day you quit, last for a couple weeks and be gone within a month.

Don’t let the fear of depression keep you from quitting smoking. It is still the best thing you can do for your health. Talk to your doctor about the various options available to you; there are medications that can help manage nicotine withdrawal while at the same time treating depression.

As you quit smoking it is important to learn about the signs of depression, http://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/depression/index.shtml . Identify your specific feelings at the time you seem depressed. Make sure you aren’t actually tired, lonely, bored or hungry. Focus on the specific mood and address it. Keep in mind the reasons why you are quitting smoking and don’t view it as a negative, instead view it as a positive lifestyle change that is going to improve the quality of your life and of those around you.

It is normal to feel sad after quitting but don’t complicate matters more by giving into temptation and feeling additional sadness and guilt for not sticking to your decision to quit.
