What Sort of Withdrawal Symptoms Will I Have?

Most smokers have 2 types of addiction: the physical and the psychological. When trying to break your physical addiction to nicotine, withdrawal symptoms can occur. Fortunately, they are only temporary. They are usually the most prevalent during the first 2 weeks and are pretty much gone within a month. And although withdrawal symptoms are uncomfortable, they are minor when compared to what tobacco does to your body.
