Type 1: Addicted to Nicotine
People who are addicted to nicotine have a cigarette first thing in the morning, as soon as they wake up. Those who smoke in the house sometimes have a cigarette before they even get out of bed.
The nicotine addiction is a powerful one. You see, nicotine stimulates the brain to produce dopamine, a feel good bio-chemical. Dopamine makes you feel pleasure. Depriving your body of nicotine also deprives it of dopamine.
Even though you may not always get a sense of pleasure after having a cigarette, you will miss the dopamine. You may be moody, irritable or even burst into tears for no reason. That is, if you try to go “cold turkey”.
The best thing to do for a nicotine addiction is to gradually reduce the number of cigarettes that you smoke. Nicotine replacement therapy does not really work. It only keeps you addicted to the nicotine.
There are homeopathic remedies that are designed to help you quit smoking naturally. When you feel the urge to smoke, you spray the non-toxic remedy in your mouth to reduce your craving. Eventually, you will smoke fewer cigarettes and in a short time, you should be a non-smoker.
