Quit smoking today

After many attempts to quit smoking, I finally did it. I smoked for 45 years and quit at least 10 times, from a few weeks to almost 3 years. Kick Your Habits’ help and approach really helped me take the next step toward a smoke-free life.

Experience of a client who completed treatment with us for smoking addiction. Shared on the independent assessment site ‘Zorgkaart Nederland’.

NOTE: Insurers believe that smoking cessation treatment belongs at the doctor’s office. With us it is only covered if you also want to be treated for another bad habit.

the addiction of nicotine

Nicotine is a stimulant. In low doses it gives a nice feeling. You feel calm and also allert, you can concentrate better. Anxiety and tension decrease. Unfortunately, this positive psychological effect disappears after only a few minutes. The physical effects such as increase in blood pressure and heart rate, and decrease in appetite last a little longer.

At higher doses of nicotine, you get the opposite effect. You become nervous, restless, unable to concentrate properly. You also get this opposite effect when the nicotine wears off, which happens very quickly with nicotine. Those annoying withdrawal symptoms disappear like snow in the sun when you take another dose of nicotine. Because of this, smoking can be very addictive.

“I came to Kick Your Habits to get rid of drinking and smoking. Psychologically, I was in bad shape. My treatment lasted nine months and the weekly talks with my therapist helped me a lot. In the beginning of treatment, things went wrong once, but now I feel safe with myself and I am no longer afraid of relapse. I definitely don’t drink or smoke anymore. And I highly recommend Kick Your Habits”

Negative consequences of smoking

You undoubtedly know that smoking is not good for you. Your condition deteriorates, your skin ages faster, and it’s bad for your teeth and breath.

In the long run, the risk of cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack and chronic bronchitis, among others, increases. Not a list to get cheerful about.

Fortunately, there is also a bright side.

  • If you succeed in not smoking (for a while) there are immediate positive effects

  • If you don’t smoke for a day, heart rate and blood pressure drop and the lungs begin to clean themselves

  • If you don’t smoke for a few days the nicotine is out of your body, you already have more air and you smell and taste better.

  • When you don’t smoke for a month your condition is better, your lungs are working better and the coughing is over.

  • If you don’t smoke for a year you already have a 50% lower risk of cardiovascular disease, and the risk of other diseases continues to decrease.

treatment concept for the busy man or woman

We developed an addiction treatment concept in Amsterdam and Utrecht that fits today’s busy person with bad habits and addictions. We see addiction as an out-of-control normal process. Something that initially worked for you (pleasure, comfort, distraction, self-confidence) turns against you.

We get you moving in a way that suits you.

If you contact us, we will discuss whether we can offer what you need. You should be aware that if you only want our treatment for smoking cessation, it will not be reimbursed by health insurance companies. They believe that ‘stop smoking’ belongs with the general practitioner.
