Being Addicted to Nicotine is a Nightmare
The effects of chronic tobacco use can be slow to manifest and historically tobacco has been readily available and affordable. For many years, tobacco use was encouraged even by the medical profession – albeit mostly for personal gain funded by tobacco companies. Times have changed though, and today’s smoker is undeniably addicted. No one today would continue to smoke unless fueled by addiction. The health, financial, social and personal costs are too high. Today’s smoker often comes to terms with the ostracism of family, friends and the general public. Tobacco prices have risen exponentially. Today’s smoker knows dramatically increasing ongoing drug costs will keep them in financial poverty. The costs are much greater than just the cost of the drug itself. Hardcore nicotine addicts who can’t afford to buy their own tobacco pick up other people’s cigarette butts to stave off the terrible effects of nicotine withdrawal. Cigarettes are obtained on the black market and bartered for with stolen goods. Addicts of all kinds push their integrity past the limit to satisfy an addiction.

Going to Drug Rehab for Being Addicted to Nicotine
Does it make sense to go to a residential drug rehab program “just to stop smoking”? The answer to this question is easy. If you are able to quit using nicotine with other methods, then you would have already. The vast majority of people who decide to stop using tobacco products do. They quit – cold turkey or with medications or hypnosis or what-have-you. Any method that works is a miracle. But there is a proportion of people so addicted to nicotine that none of these methods work. If you are still smoking after trying time and again to stop, consider residential drug rehab if you are addicted to nicotine. Drug rehab treatment facilities are the experts in treating drug addiction. Click here to read more about residential rehab for nicotine addiction.
