Quitting nicotine

Support resources

  • Team up and ask a friend to quit with you.
  • Make a list of reasons why you want to stop.
  • Learn to recognise situations where you might be tempted and avoid them.
  • Develop healthy lifestyle habits (eating well, moving, sleeping, drawing, playing music).
  • Reward your successes!
  • Don't get discouraged.
  • Be kind to yourself—it can take more than one attempt to succeed.
Withdrawal symptoms
  • Dizziness and tremors
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety and irritability
  • Nervousness and restlessness
  • Difficulty concentrating and sleeping
  • Hunger
  • Mild depression or low mood
  • Vaping cravings

Most withdrawal symptoms occur within the first week. If you’ve yet to experience them, they sometimes start on the third day. By this time, your body will have used up all its stored nicotine, making symptoms more intense. These symptoms usually disappear after two to four weeks

How to persevere

Be kind to yourself. And if things aren’t working out how you want them to, don't hesitate to ask for help. Also, remember to focus on your wins—big or small, they help you to persevere.
