  2. Withdrawal symptoms: Eliminating the troublesome side effects of withdrawal.
  3. Cravings: Reducing, if not eliminating the cravings for nicotine.
  4. Strengthening the willpower: Allows you to tap into your inner strength to resist the temptation to smoke.
  5. Strengthening the Lungs: Build up your lung energies which have been damaged by smoking.
