Tips on achieving nicotine withdrawal after asbestos exposure
Nicotine withdrawal steps are advised after exposure to asbestos.
The personal injury law firm of Weitz & Luxenberg has protected the legal rights of workers since 1986 – longer than most law firms in the nation. And in that time the firm's mesothelioma lawyers have won several billion dollars in verdicts and settlements for clients.
Asbestos exposure and cigarette smoking are a lethal combination. Health authorities recommend everyone quit smoking, especially after routine exposure to asbestos. Most people who go back to smoking do so within three months, presumably due to the addictive nature of nicotine withdrawal.
But knowing you have been exposed to asbestos can increase your determination and help you focus on the importance of giving up smoking.
Your first three months may be hard. You may be more tempted when you are stressed or feeling down. It's hard to be ready for these times before they happen. But it helps to identify when you need a cigarette most.
You should plan to deal with your urge to smoke before the urge hits you. You should also expect feelings of withdrawal. Withdrawal is the discomfort of giving up nicotine. It is your body's way of telling you it's learning to be smoke-free. These feelings will go away in time.
