We all have suffered from one or the other respiratory problems, whether it is a common cold and cough, an allergic reaction or any other disease. The suffocating and uncomfortable symptoms of respiratory problems are one of the most unpleasant things. Usually people consume pharmaceutical medicines to relieve the symptoms.

However, these medicines come with unpleasant and harmful side-effects, if not taken in moderation. Why avoid respiratory medication?

The more they smoke, the more nicotine they need, and when the body does not get nicotine, it causes symptoms of withdrawal such as nausea, trouble sleeping, restlessness, trouble concentrating.

These symptoms tend to disappear in a few days or week, but cigarette cravings stick longer. There are plenty of options available in the market such as gums, patches and other items to help smokers quit smoking. But in most of the cases, these options may not work.
