Romanians are heavy smokers, according to a study by the Romanian Society of Pneumology.
 
Those who responded said they smoke between 70 and 140 cigarettes weekly – that’s at least a pack of cigarettes a day, says RomaniaInsider.
 
Luckily, the study held more promising news, with 42% saying the think they’d feel healthier if they were to quit smoking, and that they’d pay more attention to their health. 
 
That’s great news, as just 24 hours after your last cigarette, your blood oxygen level will have increased to normal, your carbon monoxide levels will have dropped to normal… but your anxiety levels will have peaked in intensity, says WhyQuit.
 
Here’s why the third day after quitting smoking’s usually the hardest
 
But you should do all you can to hang in there, as just three days after your last cigarette, your body will test as 100% nicotine-free but your cravings for a cigarette will be at their highest. 
 
That’s why it’s a good idea to plan a weekend away over this time, where you won’t be able to give in to your cravings and buy cigarettes.
 
Revealed: The secret to kicking those cigarette cravings!
 
In fact, going on a camp filled with hikes is a great idea as you’ll notice your breathing becoming easier as your lung's functional abilities start to increase three days after your last cigarette.
 
That’s why FSPHealth says “the best thing you can do when you get a nicotine craving, is to lace up your walking shoes and head out for an invigorating stroll as getting active”, as this has been proven to help people suppress the urge to light up. 
 
But remember that it usually takes up to seven attempts for a smoker to become a non-smoker, so you shouldn’t lose hope if you’ve already tried to quit smoking and failed, says FSP Health.
 
Knowing these common pitfalls and that you’re not alone in your cravings could just boost your willpower if you’ve decided to quit smoking this World No Tobacco Day!
