What causes an addiction to smoking?

Although most commonly associated with drugs, smoking is classed as a substance addiction due to its use of nicotine. Nicotine is a naturally occurring drug found in tobacco and, surprisingly, can be just as addictive as heroin or cocaine.

It is thought that the younger an individual begins smoking, the more likely they are to become addicted to nicotine and, therefore, will form a long-term reliance. Without nicotine, they may become irritable and nervous or experience headaches and trouble sleeping.

Testimonial from my previous client

I had parts therapy with Victoria, and it was such an amazing experience. It was emotional because there was a part of me that didn’t want to stop smoking and kept resisting, so Victoria really helped me discover why I was resisting stopping smoking. I learned many things about myself in that session, it allowed me to deal with the hidden emotions I had in me. Thank you!
