Why Nicotine's Addictive
The Addictive Cycle of Smoking
Nicotine from smoking causes the release of a 'feel-good' chemical in the brain. Problem is, it's only temporary. The body processes nicotine so quickly, the effect wears off.
To get that 'feel-good factor' back, you have another smoke….. and another, until the only way to feel 'normal' is with nicotine constantly in your system.
Over time you get used to this supply of nicotine from smoking and without it you experience withdrawal symptoms. Having another cigarette takes those feelings of withdrawal away.

Why Quitting is Different For Everyone
No two people are the same. Certain things affect us in different ways, with nicotine being one of them.
It appears that some people process nicotine from smoking more quickly. This might help to explain why some smokers have to draw more from their cigarettes or smoke more frequently to maintain a constant level of nicotine in their body.
Your genetics, personal history of smoking, your level of dependence on tobacco and the nature of your previous quit attempts make the process of stopping smoking unique to you.
