However these are all built by the illusions of smoking, the nicotine is a very addictive poison that infests the body. The body builds up a tolerance for highly addictive poisons...thus, the amount of nicotine you wanted before, would increase.

Withdrawal does not feel like " I need more nicotine ". It feels like normal day to day stress, being tired, insecurity, etc.

Then when you light up and these go away temporarily, you associate cigarettes with being a solution to these problems.

This is the beautiful trap of smoking.

Eventually you depend on cigarettes to relieve the problems it is causing, thinking without cigarettes these feelings would always be there.

That is why people do not quit smoking.
