Gradual/Cold Turkey: Which Is Better To Quit Smoking?

Posted by Gurseet Singh on

You are deciding to quit smoking. After doing careful research on this topic, you learn that there are two options to becoming a non-smoker. One involves a carefully-laid method, and the other is going cold turkey.

The methodic approach requires nearly 12 weeks of medication, whereas the impulsive one is an immediate step, solely demanding willpower. What do you choose? 

The gradual way to quit smoking is clearly the winner. This blog explains why.

What Does Quitting Smoking Cold Turkey Mean?

Quitting smoking cold turkey means to stop smoking cigarettes suddenly without any treatment or replacement medications. You battle the resulting withdrawal symptoms all by yourself. Herein, the focus is on exercising willpower alone to quit smoking.

This approach doesn’t put your life in danger. But it certainly makes the transition unpleasant and painful. The resultant withdrawal symptoms affect your emotional and physical well-being.

Side Effects of Quitting Smoking Cold Turkey

To understand the consequences of stopping smoking suddenly, it is necessary to understand why you get addicted to cigarette smoking in the first place.

After cigarette smoke enters the lungs, nicotine (the addictive component of cigarettes) is absorbed rapidly into the bloodstream and stimulates the release of the pleasure chemical ‘dopamine’ in the brain.

The brain experiences a change in mood. With time, the brain starts craving this feel-good hormone, which reinforces you to smoke. 

Repeated nicotine exposure makes you addicted to smoking and weakens your will to quit smoking. When you stop smoking cigarettes, the body is unable to accept the sudden lack of nicotine. It signals the acute need for nicotine and compels you to light a cigarette at your earliest.

This condition is known as nicotine withdrawal. The withdrawal involves the following biological and psychological symptoms. 

Biological symptoms Psychological symptoms
● Increased appetite
● Cravings
● Headache and dizziness
● Cough
● Fatigue
● Constipation
● Anxiety
● Depression
● Irritability
● Mental fog

You can’t merely rest on your willpower to battle the above symptoms. You need a clinically proven and time-tested approach to cope with withdrawal symptoms and avoid relapse. In other words, quitting smoking cold turkey is not effective and has zero to low chances of success
