Smoking cigarettes is a complex behavior, affecting many aspects of one’s life. Smoking becomes a way to deal with stress, emotions, depression and boredom. In addition, whole sets of habitual behaviors develop to accommodate the smoking addiction. Many people who have successfully quit smoking have benefitted from treatment in each of these areas: physical, mental/emotional, and behavioral. Quit-smoking groups, online quit smoking sites like QuitNet and counselors are often available at little or no cost to help new non-smokers deal with the often-complex withdrawal period.
