    Smokers find it difficult to quit smoking simply because cigarettes are addictive.They contain nicotine which causes the users to develop deficiency symptoms when they try quiting.

    I can tell  you are not a smoker just because you ask the question:-)  Most smokers smoke because they have to not because they really want to.  Most have tried to quit at least once and many are just resigned to their fate.  Nicotine is a highly addictive substance

    The trick to quitting is not to give up giving up-- it takes most smokers at least three tries before they manage to kick the habit

    Great responses to your question thus far.  These hubbers obviously understand the addictive quality of nicotine.  It is one of the most difficult substances to quit, and some experts have said that heroin is easier to stop using.    If you are curious about what is put into cigarettes to keep people hooked make it a point to research it.  You will be amazed.
