Smoking isn’t just a habit, it’s an addiction and this is the main reason why it’s so difficult to quit.
Nicotine is a chemical that makes you addicted to smoking- the more you smoke, the more nicotine your body requires for you to feel ‘normal’.
When you give up smoking, your body isn’t getting any nicotine which can cause you to feel stressed, anxious and irritated.

You want more money in your pocket and healthy lungs, that’s why!
There are so many stop smoking products and services that can help you through withdrawal, so you’ll never want to light up again.
