Managing your cravings

Nicotine withdrawal

Tobacco contains a highly addictive drug called nicotine. When you stop smoking you may experience temporary withdrawal symptoms. These can be uncomfortable but it is important for you to understand that what you are going through is actually a positive thing. These symptoms don't last for long and your body is getting better.

Knowing your triggers helps you stay in control. You can choose to avoid them or keep your mind distracted and busy during difficult times.
