Physical Nicotine Addiction – Within three days without smoking, the nicotine should be eliminated from the body.
Habit/Association – You may associate good memories with having a cigarette in hand, or the people you’d mingle with who would always smoke. If you’ve been surrounded by friends or family members who smoke, it may be difficult to shake yourself from the association and smoking culture.
Routine/Environment – You may be accustomed to having a smoke with a coffee or drink, after a meal, when you’re upset and unable to voice your feelings, when you get in the car or because you’ve always been in the “smoking” group at work. These habits can be difficult to shake on your own.
Stress/Tension – Smokers often deal with stress or tension by going outside for a smoke rather than tackling the emotion. If this is the case, we’ll need to disconnect this emotion from smoking.
Boredom/Frustration- When you have nothing better to do, you may end up just lighting a cigarette to pass the time.
Fatigue/Stimulation- You might be using cigarettes to energise yourself when you feel tired or to celebrate when feeling excited.
Relaxation/Enjoyment – Relaxing after a busy day could mean lighting up a cigarette.
