Can you explain cravings to a non-smoker?


I know that smoking is addictive but can you put it into words what you as a smoker go through when you are craving a cigarette? Image Credit: Pixabay and Realworkhard

    I started smoking at 12, I wish I had never started, it is so hard to quit, I quit once for 4 months. I tried to quit and failed. It was so hard, I got tired of failing and give up.

    I think I am guilty of assuming that smokers are 'weak willed'. I see your point that every smoker is an individual and what works for one, might not for another. Thank you for putting that into perspective.

    I hear that word 'stress' often. "I am smoking more because I am stressed". But I am stressed and I am not smoking.

    As D. William said, 5 days of pain and sickness to get over the initial stages of the cravings. It is a powerful drug.

    The symptoms are the same. I also have pseudo hypoglycemia from drinking coffee on an empty stomach.Both cravings R scary. Tapering never worked 4 me & cold turkey is a nightmare. I really feel 4 any 1 trying 2 kick an addiction.

    I have lived with smokers all my life, and never really understood them. Oddly enough, I find people who are smokers give advice on health concerns regarding food choices etc. Thanks for your answer.
