Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)
The possible symptoms of nicotine withdrawal can include irritation, anxiety, fatigue, mild depression, and nicotine cravings. Generally speaking, the more you smoked then the more severe the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal will be, making it harder for you to quit. This is why many people find it so hard to quit smoking "cold turkey" without the help of NRT. By alleviating some of the physiological imperatives related to the smoking habit, the ex-smoker is better equipped to deal with overcoming the remaining behavioural and psychological facets of their smoking habit.
NRT replaces the nicotine found in cigarettes without exposing the user to the other carcinogenic substances and toxins such as carbon monoxide and tar. The NRT only provides a small amount of nicotine compared to that contained in each cigarette. This also makes it easier to stop using NRT when you feel confident that this will not cause a relapse into the smoking habit. It is widely accepted that, provided that you are committed to stopping smoking, NRT will approximately double your chances of quitting. It is certainly higher than the success rates for "heavy" smokers who smoke more than 15 cigarettes a day and try to quit cold turkey, which is estimated to be as little as 5%.
