Quitting smoking is a physical and mental challenge. You may have cravings, withdrawal symptoms, and temptation to smoke. Before quitting, work with your health care provider to make a plan that can help you manage quitting. Making a plan before you quit may keep you from smoking when you have the urge to smoke while trying to quit.
Talk with your health care provider about medicines that might help you deal with cravings and make quitting easier for you.
These symptoms may surprise you, but they are normal to have when quitting smoking.
