Most non-smokers think that stopping smoking is only about willpower. They don’t understand the physical and psychological hold that smoking can have on a person. We were all non-smokers once and you can quit and return to what it is like to feel normal again.
When dealing with the physical effects of smoking or nicotine addiction there are options to help you cope. Many people have used OTC nicotine replacement products such as the patch or gum to help control the withdrawal symptoms as they battled the psychological effects.
The will to stop smoking is a start but don’t forget that there are several other resources out there that can help you be successful and you need to keep on trying until you stop for good.
