First things first: Quitting smoking is a journey, not a single event. It is not a one time occurrence. You quit every single moment of every day until the cravings die out. Durations may vary; one month, one year, more years. When it comes to the quitting, no two cases are the same just as reasons for quitting always vary. And while that journey might sometimes feel lonely, you have no reason to feel lost. Curating experiences of numerous people who have successfully completed the journey, you will find below the common experiences to expect in period succeeding when you decide to divorce the tobacco.A couple of days after you quit smoking, the nicotine would be totally depleted from your body and you start feeling the withdrawal symptoms. You might experience some physical and emotional symptoms during withdrawal. These include headaches, nausea, cramps, sweating, anxiety, insomnia, irritability, and depression.
