One of the hardest parts of quitting smoking is dealing with withdrawal symptoms. Typically, these symptoms (which can include irritability, difficulty concentrating, restlessness, and cravings for cigarettes) can reach their peak two to three days after your last smoke and last for around one to three months.
A key way to relieve those cravings for cigarettes is using a smoking cessation product. Nicorette Coated Nicotine Lozenges are a proven, FDA-approved method for lasting cigarette craving relief — even after the lozenge dissolves.
Another way to find support as you try to quit smoking is to surround yourself with positive people, positive environments, and a motivational quote or two. Bookmark this page for those moments when the struggle is real to give yourself an extra positive push!
