Like other smokers, quitting smoking is your top priority, but if you’re suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) there is a great urgency.
Smoking is very dangerous to your health and quitting is the most difficult thing to do. Once you are engaged with cigarette smoking the cravings of nicotine can often go beyond your control.
Quitting smoking is difficult at first due to the intense withdrawal symptoms that you may experience during your first days and week. But as the days go by, everything becomes easier and your cigarette craving will begin to wane until you no longer experience it.
“I’ll smoke for one last time and tomorrow, I’ll stay smoke-free again!” Sounds familiar? Well, it isn’t you alone who experience this kind of feeling. Smoking cessation experts call it ‘junkie thinking’ – one’s psychological urge to light up during and even after the smoking cessation period.
The New Year gives many people a great opportunity to improve their lives. At every start of the year, thousands of people make commitments to create positive changes. One of which is to never smoke again. But unfortunately, only a few are able to achieve such New Year’s resolution.
