How to Beat Nicotine Withdrawals

There’s no sugar coating it: the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal are tough! So tough, in fact, that withdrawals usually send people running back to the nearest store for a pack of cigarettes.


So what do you do? How do you make it through, so you can finally quit smoking?


What to Expect When You Quit Smoking

Well there is some good news: although the withdrawal process is intense, it’s a relatively short period of time. The symptoms usually reach their height two or three days after your most recent cigarette. Around the third day is when your body should have flushed itself of the last traces of nicotine. After your first nicotine-free week is when many symptoms subside. The next 2-4 weeks is when symptoms will start to fade away. After that, the hardest part is behind you!

Join a Support Group

Either online or in-person, there is power in numbers. Being around people working towards the same goal allows you to lift and be lifted by others. Support groups give encouragement and also add a bit of accountability on your part as your share your progress with the other group members. It’s a win-win situation! Although family and friend support is helpful, it often helps to be additionally supported by those who understand the tough time you are going through. Lucky enough for you, Slighter has a built-in community feature where you can connect with others and find the support you need in your reduction goals.

Take Baby Steps

You don’t have to quit cold-turkey! Taking on something as monumental as that makes it easier for relapses and harder to keep up motivation. Reducing your cigarette usage in increments will help with the intensity of withdrawals and can help you avoid turning back to your habit. Although it does take a longer time, this method is known to be effective, and often preferred, by many former nicotine users and health professionals.

Treat Yourself

Giving yourself a reward at the end of the day can be a huge factor in keeping up your motivation. Your goal becomes a little more tangible, and it can often help you visualize your progress, especially if you aren’t feeling the effects of your successes at the moment. It doesn’t have to be anything big, but don’t sell yourself short! You are accomplishing something huge and working towards a better life! So get a pint of Ben and Jerry’s, a pedicure, whatever you know will motivate you to keep those cigarettes put away.
