SYMPTOMS OF SMOKING-RELATED CONDITIONS

Learn more with hub.health

When discussing symptoms related to smoking, the primary concern focuses on smoking-related diseases and conditions.

Smoking  can result in symptoms that may be early warning signs for more severe health conditions.

You’re not alone in this milestone moment to a healthier you, with our dedicated medical team at hub.health to support you in quitting smoking for good.

Symptoms of smoking-related diseases

CDC’s research points to cigarette smoking being the leading cause of preventable disease, disability and mortality. Smoking not only has the potential to cause several life-threatening disorders but significantly worsens underlying health conditions and may exacerbate hereditary illnesses.

The symptoms aligning with smoking-related diseases can lead to degenerative health conditions, such as heart disease, cancer, premature birth, macular degeneration and compromised immune function.

Common symptoms associated with smoking-related conditions include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Gum disease
  • Poor circulation
  • Blood clots
  • Chest pain
  • Impaired vision
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Reproductive issues

 

Learn more about how quitting smoking can improve your immune system.

Symptoms of nicotine withdrawal

Additionally, it’s essential to discuss nicotine withdrawal symptoms to ensure patients understand the process of quitting smoking and have access to any support network they may need to assist them on their journey.

Going cold turkey and abruptly eliminating nicotine from your body can cause significant mental and physical changes, making it difficult for people to regulate their emotions during this time of transition.

 

Symptoms of nicotine withdrawal may include:

  • Cravings or urges to start smoking again
  • Inability to focus
  • Feeling restless or anxious
  • Disrupted sleep
  • Increase in appetite or weight gain
  • Inability to regulate emotions, with feelings of sadness or irritability
Quit Smoking Treatments

Although the symptoms associated with nicotine withdrawal can be uncomfortable, they cannot hurt you and are only temporary hurdles.

Nicotine restricts blood flow, which can compromise the circulatory system, leading to further health complications for both men and women.

Prescribed treatments are an effective way to ease withdrawal symptoms and can provide a more sustainable solution than going it alone with the cold turkey method.

It’s time to look after your health

Regardless of what caused a person to begin smoking, effective treatments are available to aid in quitting smoking. If you’re experiencing any early signs of smoking-related conditions, there’s never been a better time to quit.

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.
