    Hello everyone.  I just want to confess that I have failed at quitting smoking once again in my life.  I made it 6 months & started again so have reset my quit day as today after much thought & consideration, and, like every other time, I hope this is the one that sticks.  It’s not so easy to quit with no support within the household.

    Question:  Is it possible to become allergic to tobacco after years of smoking?

    Best of luck to all of you on your journey to successfully quitting

    Hi Mina

    Congrats to quit again, and welcome to help line.

    As Non Smoker and highly allergic to all,  I can say when I was smoker always sick! since I quit my briefing improves a lot for better and better.

    I do not get sick easy like before and I can brief free and enjoy it!

    So in my opinion yes you can feel some complications, is a good idea to consult with your Doctor about it!

    Hi Mina,

    I can relate with quitting for a long time & relapsing, it happened to me too, my first quit, almost 9 months & I started smoking. I was so disappointed in myself.

    I’m back at it again, just passed the 4 month mark & still at times I struggle in wanting to smoke. Not one puff ever I tell myself, plus I try to always remember all the negativity of this awful addiction.

    Hope this helps you to know you are not alone & to not be to hard on yourself. Give yourself a pat on the back for never giving up! Take Care

    Hi Mina,

    Welcome back and congratulations for making this important decision to quit again! You have quit before for 6 months and it shows that you have the skills, the strength and what it takes to quit again. Most people will try many times before they quit for good. It is a part of the quitting process. As long as you keep trying, you will reach your goal and become smoke-free.

    After much thought and consideration, you have decided to quit again. You have worked very hard and done a lot of preparation to get to this point – Way to go! With this strong and positive mindset, you can do this!

    Regarding your question, we all know that cigarettes are filled with many irritating chemicals, some people may have an allergic reaction to those specific substances. We encourage you to speak with your doctor.

    Remember that you are not alone in your quit journey, we are here for you. If you have any questions or concerns, call us at 1-877-513-5333 and we’ll be happy to help you.

    Take care
