i quit smoking and vaping in the past 2 months and i’m really proud of myself because it had such an intense hold on me for years. but the want for nicotine is still there every now and then and sometimes it’s pretty strong. does the want and urges ever go away?

      As someone who quit drinking and drugs, for me it’s not that much urge and want went away entirely but having an urge or desire stopped being meaningful, tempting or threatening in any way.

      They do go away, i started smoking when i was 10 and quit when i was 18. It almost took everything i had from me but there is not a day that goes by that i regret quitting. I dont have the urge every time i see someone smoke, or if i think about it or anything. Every once in a while i feel like smoking but i remember how bad it made my life and how i went broke becuase of it, or how everyone in my family smokes or died from smoking. It does get better %10000 dude.

      I’ve known some people with nicotine withdrawal problems and they would always find the gum or patches helpful. I would recommend those since it’s only been a couple of months, and your body is probably still not used to being without the drugs. I don’t have to have used drugs to know that yes, they do in fact go away eventually. I think it’s one of those things that everyone has a different time with simply because everyone’s body reacts differently. I also believe it depends on how much you were using and what kind of substances they were. Again, I have not taken drugs, nor am I a doctor, I’m just going off of common knowledge. Good luck and remember you’re only helping yourself by doing this and not making anything worse. Your mind will try to trick you but you have to know that you’re doing a good thing for yourself. :)
