Symptoms of cessation after a long duration of smoking can be difficult to manage for the patient. Physical symptoms like sweating, constipation
, headache, tingling sensation
in hands and feet etc. and psychological symptoms like irritability, anxiety, depression etc. are quite common. They can last for many months in the patient. He could try out some deep breathing and relaxation techniques
and find more time to relax. If it is severe then he may need to visit his psychiatrist
for additional medications.
Hope this helps,
