CAUSES OF SMOKING

Leading causes of smoking

In many cases, a person may start smoking socially or as a one-time occurrence, but due to the highly addictive nature of nicotine, they find it difficult to limit their use.

When the frequency of smoking increases, the body craves nicotine more regularly, often resulting in a steady rise in the number of cigarettes smoked daily.

Learn more about the leading causes of smoking and the effective treatments available for a healthier future.

  • Peer pressure
  • Self-medication
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Stress or anxiety
  • Social surroundings
  • Parental influence

  • Risk-taking behaviour

Frequently asked questions

In most cases, nicotine replacement therapy is the most effective treatment for quitting smoking. Although the body still receives nicotine through a different dispersal method, it is a controlled, low-dose release that is only used for a short period to assist in the symptoms associated with nicotine withdrawal.

If you feel the urge to smoke within 30 minutes of waking in the morning or smoke more than ten cigarettes daily, you will likely develop nicotine dependence. For patients that align with this category, NRT is recommended to quit smoking.

At hub.health, our medical team provides the highest standard of healthcare, assessing each patient individually. It will not be issued if our team determines a potential risk related to a specific smoking treatment. Your assigned medical practitioner may provide recommendations for the next steps, including in-person GP visits for further assessment.

Once your treatment has been paid for, we will ship with express delivery to anywhere in Australia, meaning your package should arrive within 1-3 days. Your product is shipped in an Australia Post package, which means it will be completely discreet.
