Starting Medication After You Quit
Quitting smoking, vaping, and/or dipping smokeless tobacco is hard. Your body and brain want nicotine. Even quitting for a few hours can be an uphill climb. It’s not easy staying quit for one day, two days, or even three days.
After three days, most of the nicotine is out of your body. Even so, you may not feel great. You might feel anxious and irritable. You might feel tightness in your chest. You might even find it harder to focus your thoughts.
Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT), such as patches, gum, or lozenges, can make life more comfortable. It can give you space to practice managing cravings and withdrawal. Let’s dig in on this idea.
