Nicotine is a very powerful chemical that will physically and mentally affect your body. Quitting smoking can be a difficult process, but it is worth it because there are many positive benefits associated with it. If you decide to quit smoking your body will go through nicotine withdrawal, which can produce some unwanted side effects. These side effects can make it difficult for you to stick with your decision to quit, because all you would have to do to end the uncomfortableness is to light up another cigarette. However, if you are aware of how the nicotine withdrawal will affect your body ahead of time, you can take some specific steps to lessen its impact on your body, thereby increasing your chances of success. Here is what you can expect to experience as a result of stopping your nicotine addiction. 

Many people who quit smoking will experience flu like systems as a result of nicotine withdrawal. They may experience symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, headache, sore throat, cough, stomach pains and tightness in their chests. The exact withdrawal symptoms you experience may be different than what other people have experienced in the past, because every person is different. Other nicotine withdrawal symptoms that you might encounter can include an inability to concentrate, heavy cravings for nicotine and feelings of irritability and annoyance. Some people become especially angry when they quit smoking. Other physical effects could include the feeling of a post nasal drip in the back of your throat, gum and tongue soreness, dry mouth and digestive upset, which could include gas, pain and constipation. Lots of people will have an increased appetite when they quit smoking and are likely to replace their smoking cravings with food cravings. 

These symptoms are a sad fact of the quitting process. Odds are you will experience at least some of these physical symptoms when you decide to quit smoking for good. The good news is that these symptoms are only temporary. Most will go away after a few days without a cigarette and all of them will be gone within a month of quitting. Very few people will experience long lasting nicotine withdrawal symptoms, but if they do last for longer than a month you should talk with your doctor. 
 
Once you are aware of how the nicotine withdrawal will affect you physically, you can take some steps to help mitigate the damage. This will improve your chances of success.
