Parting with smoking in many men raises the question of the consequences of giving up cigarettes.

Rebuilding the body for a healthy life without nicotine
Having decided to quit smoking, you need to know about the unpleasant sensations that arise at first. All negative manifestations are caused by the restoration of the body to a healthy existence without nicotine.

Manifestations with pronounced symptoms are called withdrawal syndrome. Consider the possible manifestations of smoking cessation:

Nervousness and anger can quickly be replaced by a depressive depression. The duration of symptoms for each man is different and depends on the state of the body and psychological attitude.
- The manifestation of anxiety and aggression.

Very often, when giving up cigarettes, 50% of men gain weight, this is due to the exacerbation of taste receptors, the restoration of hunger that was previously dulled by cigarette smoke and most often by replacing cigarettes with food. In the case of predisposition to completeness, it is important to control your diet, and to replace cigarettes using regular chewing gum or water. Weight normalized after 2 – 3 months.

When immunity is weakened, problems with the skin and mucous membranes (stomatitis, acne) often occur. From the first days of failure, the body begins to restore the function of producing “its own” nicotine. Doctors recommend to protect the body from viruses and bacteria.
- Mild dizziness and headache.
In the body on the third day without nicotine, the level of glucose decreases, which provokes headaches. If a man has problems with blood pressure, the improvement of the vascular system also begins, after normalization of vascular tone, headaches disappear.
- Sleep disturbance.
During this period it is important to sleep at least 8 hours. Men often have difficulty falling asleep due to the tension and concentration of thoughts on smoking. They recommend to be distracted by reading or listening to an audiobook. At bedtime, a relaxing bath or massage with essential oils (anise, lavender, bergamot, chamomile) will help. Many improve the process of falling asleep motherwort tincture. Also, some men have increased drowsiness, in which case it is easier for the body to move the phase of giving up cigarettes.
