- Recovery is a temporary journey of re-adjustment during which the mind and body are allowed to undergo an amazing healing process. It's a period when the brain is permitted the time needed to physically re-sensitizenicotine numbed dopamine pathway receptors, and to return the number of receptors to levels seen inside the brains of non-smokers.
Recovery is the time needed to allow the brain to again grow comfortable functioning without nicotine. It's the time needed to break and extinguish subconscious nicotine use triggers. It's where we allow our conscious thinking mind the time needed to adapt to all the physical changes, to get comfortable moving through your day without using, and the time to sort through years of nicotine use rationalizations. Doing so allows us to arrive at a day where we comfortably engage all aspects of life without a physical, subconscious or conscious want or need for nicotine.
Although we should expect anxiety producing bumps along the road, each passing day beyond physical withdrawal will bring fewer and fewer thoughts of wanting to use. Over time, all of your nicotine feeding cues, cues fathered by true chemical dependency, will be broken. Recovery is a matter of staying calm yet prepared, as a few such cues may be seasonal, mood related or associated with infrequent activities or events.
The bottom line is that whether your dependency was maintained by being smoked, chewed, inhaled, drank, snuffed, sprayed, swallowed, sucked, licked or patched, in the end there is only one way out - no more nicotine.
Every recovery is different. The number and intensity of effects noticed or felt varies from person to person, and even between each person's own cessation experiences. Many members at Freedom are surprised to find that they experience almost no symptoms at all, while others are confronted with multiple symptoms. The number and types of particular feeding cues selected and formed by endless compliance with the mind's chemical demand for nicotine refueling also cause each person's recovery experience to be unique.
By understanding some of the symptoms and effects it may be possible, in some instances, to minimize their impact by thought or action. Removing the mystery associated with the sequencing and timing of withdrawal and recovery will hopefully make you feel like you have your very own personal roadmap to the rich sense of comfort, mental quiet and calm that awaits you here on Easy Street.
Nicotine addict injecting nicotine into their bloodstreamWe nicotine smokers didn't suck tissue destroying tar composed of over 4,000 chemicals, including ammonia, formaldehyde, arsenic, butane, hydrogen cyanide, lead, mercury, vinyl chloride, methane or vast quantities of carbon monoxide into our bodies because we wanted to watch each puff destroy a bit more of our capacity to receive and circulate life-giving oxygen. We did so to get to the nicotine.
Those who care about you, including the victims and families whose nightmares are shared here at WhyQuit, are hoping and praying that you will decide to end your self-destruction while still time. What friends and loved ones don't understand is that the wanting felt for that next nicotine fix is as real and nearly identical to the wanting or craves they feel when hungry. What most users lack are the insignts needed to explain why that next fix seems more important than life itself, an understanding that nicotine dependency is a brain wanting disorder, a mental illness and disease.
Nicotine is a colorless, odorless, organic-based alkaloid in the same family as cocaine, morphine, quinine and strychnine. It is a super toxin, fetal teratogen and natural insecticide that was sold in the U.S. as Black Leaf 40. The lethal dose needed to kill a 160 pound human is 2-3 drops or about 60mg. Drop for drop it is more deadly than strychnine (75mg), diamond back rattlesnake venom (100mg), arsenic (200mg) or cyanide (500mg). Imagine 1mg of nicotine, the average amount delivered into the bloodstream by smoking just one cigarette, being sufficient to kill the largest rat you have ever seen (1-2 lbs.). Is it any wonder that a recent study suggests that nicotine gradually destroys brain gray matter?
Although heroin produces a numb dopamine high and alcohol a drunken dopamine high, governments and experts tell us that nicotine's alert dopamine high may be the most effective at establishing the onset of chemical "dependency."
The one-year success rate for those who go through heroin withdrawal is about 20 percent, whereas with "uneducated" nicotine cessation rate only about 6 percent. Except for the type of high experienced and the fact that our stimulant is legal, we truly are drug addicts, just as much as the addicts that fill jails and prisons around the globe..
