One thing right off the bat you need to understand is that simply learning the truth about withdrawal is not likely to be the lynch pin that gets you to quit. 93% of people will need the aid of a program even if you understand the myths about withdrawal. Here’s why – The reasons you smoke and why your stuck are much more complex than understanding the myths of withdrawal. Don’t let that dissuade you as it is important to understand this to quit. Its part of the journey not the end of the journey.
When I tried to quit I remember quitting smoking and within 3 hours the withdrawal setting in. I would get headaches and I felt so sick I just want to puke! It was horrible. I remember laying on my couch after one of my 50 times trying to quit, I remember one afternoon feeling tired, lethargic and heavy. I was angry, irritable and I wanted to bite everyone’s head off
I had brain fog and could not concentrate.
If I only knew then what I know now quitting could have been so much easier for me. Here’s what happens we think that this is about nicotine withdrawal. But we know from science its much more complex than that.
We need to deconstruct the science of the body to figure out what is really going on here. If we can understand the biochemistry than perhaps we can figure what to do about it. Right?
Withdrawal symptoms from quitting smoking:
Rapid heart, Insomnia /wakeful state, Shortness of breath, irritability, Grumpiness, Inability to focus – brain fog, Headaches, Tiredness. Sound about right?
But is this caused by the nicotine leaving your system? Well sort of but not in the way you think. Lets look at the three things we know from science about nicotine and withdrawal. One – When we smoke nicotine has an effect on caffeine. Did you know that 86% of smokers drink coffee? & smokers consume twice as much coffee as nonsmokers in fact a smoker consumes on average 3 cups per day while a non smoker consumes a cup and half on average.
We understand the science of nicotine and caffeine. When you consume caffeine and smoke the caffeine breaks down 2x as fast.
That means the effects of caffeine on a smoker is half that of a non smoker. Guess why smokers consume 2x as much caffeine? They have to in order to get the same effects. Think about this, as a smoker you likely drink coffee and you drink twice what you normally would as a non smoker to get the effects of the caffeine because the nicotine causes our body to break down the caffeine twice as fast. You create habits out of both smoking and drinking coffee. When you quit you still have the habit of drinking three cups of coffee per day, do you cut your coffee consumption when you quit? No because you have a habit of 3 cups of coffee per day. You just go on drinking the same amount of coffee. But wait a minute, your body has adjusted and gotten used to a certain level of caffeine but your drinking the same amount without the caffeine now. You are now no longer ingesting nicotine that breaks down the caffeine twice as fast. What happens biochemically? Well you now have twice the level of caffeine in your systems for double the time. What do you think that causes? It causes something called caffeine overdose. Guess what the side effects of caffeine over dose are? Rapid heart rate, insomnia, shortness of breath sound like withdrawal. We will come back to this in the tips, tricks and hacks on how to deal with it.
Two – Nicotine also cause blood sugar levels to fall which leads to hypoglycemia – that’s low blood sugar levels that lead to diabetes. Guess why smokers are more likely to develop diabetes then non smokers? Now you quit and the nicotine is gone and your blood sugar levels spike, guess what happens according to science? You get hyperglycemia the opposite of hypoglycemia and guess what the side effects of hyperglycemia are? Increased urination which leads to dehydration, restlessness, tingling hands and feet, nausea, confusion, increased sadness, depression and anxiety. Sound familiar? Basically smoking was causing your body to reduce blood sugar levels that were giving you diabetes and now that you quit your blood sugar levels are climbing giving you hyperglycemia and these crazy withdrawal symptoms.
Now lets deal with number three dehydration. Dehydration is a byproduct of both caffeine overdose and hyperglycemia. What do you think the symptom of dehydration are? Feeling dizzy, lightheaded, confusion, tired, lethargic, listleness, irritability, anger, depression, headaches,
Ok lets put all these three together, Caffeine overdose with hyperglycemia and dehydration these three things cause Rapid heart rate, shortness of breath, restlessness, insomnia, tiredness without sleep, tingling hands and feet, nausea, increased sadness, depression, anxiety, irritability, anger, Feeling dizzy, lightheaded, confusion, brain fog, lethargicness, listlessness, headaches does all this sound familiar? So whats happening here. All that is happening is your body is adjusting to not having nicotine. The myth of nicotine withdrawal is that it is a by product of not having the nicotine and nothing can be done, its just something you have to go through. Well that’s a myth, we know why from science why you have these withdrawal symptoms and we know what you can do about it. Here’s what you can do to help with these symptoms to ease the quitting process.
1 cut your coffee consumption in half to minimize the caffeine overdose
2 eat a larger breakfast that includes carbohydrates to control your glucose levels. Eat breakfast as soon as you wake up, like within 10 mins. Some ideal breakfast choices include:
hard-boiled eggs and whole-grain toast, oatmeal with berries, sunflower seeds, agave, and cinnamon, Greek yogurt with berries, honey, and oatmeal. Cinnamon is thought to help reduce blood sugar levels and can be sprinkled on many breakfast foods.
This will help with the hyperglycemia.
3 drink lots of water, increase your water intake and as you experience any of these withdrawal symptoms grab some fruits or nuts and drink water immediately.
If you do those 3 things your withdrawal symptoms will become so much easier to deal with.
