Nicotine is addictive, and quitting smoking leads to symptoms of nicotine withdrawal such as craving, anxiety and irritability, depression, and weight gain. Professional smoking cessation support methods generally endeavor to address both nicotine addiction and nicotine withdrawal symptoms. Interventions such as nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs) work by delivering nicotine into the body to ease withdrawal while allowing the smoker to break the behavioral habits associated with the cigarette itself. The antidepressant bupropion is considered a first-line medication for smoking cessation and has been shown in many studies to increase long-term success rates. Varenicline decreases the urge to smoke and reduces withdrawal symptoms and is therefore considered a first-line medication for smoking cessation. Clonidine may reduce withdrawal symptoms and “approximately doubles abstinence rates when compared to a placebo,” but its side effects include dry mouth and sedation, and abruptly stopping the drug can cause high blood pressure and other side effects.
