For many people, smoking is a stress reliever and a coping mechanism. When you're having a bad day or under a lot of pressure, it's tempting to step outside and try to make your worries go away by lighting up a cigarette. However, the relief is only temporary, and as you probably already know, smoking is detrimental to your overall health.

If you've tried to quit smoking in the past, you know how difficult it can be to kick the habit. But, through online therapy, you can overcome your addiction to smoking and discover healthy ways to cope with stress.

Why is smoking addictive?

Anyone who has smoked cigarettes knows how addicting it can be, but why is that exactly? Cigarettes contain nicotine, which is highly addictive. When you inhale the smoke from a cigarette, the nicotine immediately rushes to your brain, producing feelings of pleasure and reducing stress. It can be difficult to find this immediate rush from other outlets so easily. It's the same rush you get from exercising or doing something new and exciting. That is why so many people become dependent on cigarettes--it creates a physical and psychological dependence.
