Nicotine Withdrawal Directory
Nicotine withdrawal symptoms may include headaches, anxiety, nausea, and tobacco cravings. These symptoms are a result of a lack of nicotine, a substance to which the body may become addicted. Withdrawal symptoms are the worst about two days after quitting and may last for about six months. While some people quit smoking cold turkey, many look to aids such as medications, patches, gum, and more. These may help ease the effects of nicotine withdrawal. To stay motivated, reward yourself, and don't let little setbacks hinder your overall goal.
