How to Prevent a Nicotine Relapse

I can tell the difference!

70 percent of smokers want to quit smoking. The strong cravings and withdrawal symptoms can make this a difficult task.This is because smoking is a true addiction. Nicotine stimulates the same area of the brain as heroin and morphine. Pet scan proves this for the first time.Most smokers have made several attempts before actually quitting. To prevent  a relapse it is important to avoid triggers, seek help (counselor, doctor, support groups, etc.), use medications, release your internal endorphins. Smokers who receive counseling are 50% more likely to to quit than those who do not.
