Are these always withdrawl symptoms of quitting smoking?

Not always. In my work on this, I've observed that some quit with nothing more than a decision, and experience no withdrawal symptoms. For others, they need a process and lots of support. When I was young, I smoked. What made me quit? My father annoyed the daylights out of me. One day it occurred to me that it would be easier to quit than to deal with his constant bugging me. I had no symptoms at all.
