If you are a non-smoker, you probably wonder what makes smoking so addictive that most people who are hooked into it attempt to stop but oftentimes fail. Or if you smoke, you probably resonate with the feeling of it being addictive. There are many premium quality cigars and cigarettes available in the market just like the Sandford, FI cigars, and it is difficult to neglect these and stop taking them. Smoking needs to be taken in moderation as it can potentially cause serious illness and diseases – which is a fact that is hard to deny.

What makes smoking addictive is the nicotine that cigar contained, and even though this chemical is not as high as heroin or cocaine’s it is still as equally addictive as these drugs I mentioned.

When you attempt to stop, your body will feel withdrawal symptoms and these can be so difficult to fight back as the chemical, once inside your body, has now created an impact on different parts fo your body such as blood vessels, heart, lungs, hormones, metabolism, and brain. When you stop taking it, your body will negatively recto to its absence. The following are the withdrawal symptoms:

1.Strong craving

The nicotine craving is the most difficult symptom to combat, which can last for five to ten minutes. Because your brain and body have gone familiar to nicotine and the “good feeling” it provides, your body will ask for it. You start feeling uncomfortable and feeling a strong urge to get a cigar and puff on it but you need to be hard-willed and remember that this feeling can just last a few minutes to resist.

2.Gaining weight

When you are depriving yourself of nicotine that your body has grown accustomed to, the cravings will divert into food. This is physiological. Nicotine triggers the release of glucose from your liver and muscles that alters your response to insulin, and when you don’t have it now, you would experience a drop in your blood sugar that urges you to consume sweets, carbs, and other foods to satisfy what your body needs.

3.Persistent cough

Coughing is a sign that your lungs are recovering from the smoke it has inhaled form the tobacco and cigarettes. This indicates that your cilia have not returned to their normal shape and function that ouches toxic deposits out of the lungs.

4.Sleep disturbances

You will experience insomnia as a side effect of not having nicotine, as well as wanting to have more sleep during the day.

5.Mood and behavioral changes

You will start to feel irritable, the problem in concentrating, memory problems, anger, and more. This is caused by the dysregulation of the endocrine and central nervous system.

6.Flu-like symptoms

You will experience malaise, fever, coughing, body aches, sinusitis, and others that can last up to a couple of days.


Aside from your brain and lungs your digestive tract will also experience adverse effects, as it alters the contraction and mobility of the intestines, which slow the speed of digestion and results in constipation that can last up to 14 days.
