In brief: Dependence&withdrawl
Most people who smoke become addicted to nicotine.
Someone who has become addicted to nicotine may have cravings for cigarettes, have difficulty stopping smoking, and have nicotine withdrawal symptoms when they try to do so. These include irritability, anxiety, depression, headache, hunger. These symptoms peak 12 to 24 hours after quitting and then slowly go away. Therapy, hypnosis &eft can help.
