Did you know that smoking increases stress? Your nicotine levels increase when you smoke a cigarette. This relieves any nicotine withdrawal symptoms, like anxiety and restlessness. But shortly after, your nicotine levels begin to fall, and the withdrawal symptoms and cravings come back. When you smoke another cigarette, this starts the stress cycle of smoking again.
The good news is that nicotine starts to leave your body just one day after quitting, and after six weeks, you will begin to feel less stressed, anxious and depressed! For support on how to break the stress cycle, visit iCanQuit.com.au or call Quitline on 13 78 48 (13 QUIT) to talk to a Quit Smoking Counsellor for advice and support tailored to you!
