Tobacco cessation is the process of discontinuing tobacco use. Tobacco contains nicotine, which is addictive. Nicotine withdrawal makes the process of quitting often very prolonged and difficult. Tobacco cessation can be difficult due to physical and psychological dependence; both the habit and nicotine addiction are hard to break. There may be some immediate withdrawal symptoms that are difficult to overcome, such as agitation, anxiety, insomnia, even weight gain and depression. However, withdrawal symptoms are temporary, and permanently quitting yields serious health benefits.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects children and teens and can continue into adulthood. ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed mental disorder of children.

Occasional anxiety is an expected part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or before making an important decision.

The symptoms can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships.
Depression (major depressive disorder or clinical depression) is a common but serious mood disorder. It causes severe symptoms that affect how you feel, think, and handle daily activities, such as sleeping, eating, or working.

Trauma & PTSD
PTSD is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. It is natural to feel afraid during and after a traumatic situation. Fear triggers many split-second changes in the body to help defend against danger or to avoid it. This “fight-or-flight” response is a typical reaction meant to protect a person from harm. Nearly everyone will experience a range of reactions after trauma, yet most people recover from initial symptoms naturally. Those who continue to experience problems may be diagnosed with PTSD. People who have PTSD may feel stressed or frightened even when they are not in danger.
