Trying to Quit Tobacco or Vaping?

with Julie Daigle Healthy Acadia


One of the hardest things to do is to quit using tobacco products. Many harmful chemicals found in tobacco and vaping liquids, including nicotine and menthol, are highly, physically addictive or serve to boost the addictiveness of tobacco.  The habit of use itself can become emotionally and behaviorally addictive. As well as the stresses of addiction, other factors such as fear of withdrawal, overall life stress, living with smokers and nicotine users, social norms that minimize the harms of nicotine addiction, weight gain, and fear of failure can make it challenging to quit using tobacco products. Many times it takes more than one try.
