Nicotine Withdrawal

By DuPage Medical Group

Though nicotine withdrawal can be uncomfortable, there is no health risk associated with cessation of smoking. The symptoms you experience may last anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks. 

Symptoms of Nicotine Withdrawal Include

  • Trouble sleeping
  • Irritability
  • Feeling sad
  • Lack of concentration
  • Craving a cigarette
  • Feeling hungry
  • Cough or dry throat

Though these symptoms may be tough to overcome, you can become one of 49 million ex-smokers in the US who were able to overcome them.
