Smoker’s flu is a set of symptoms that people may experience when they stop smoking tobacco or using nicotine. The symptoms of withdrawal from nicotine and tobacco can include symptoms like coughing, fatigue, headache, and sore throat that are associated with the common cold or influenza.

 

About 90% of people who smoke are addicted to nicotine, and most of them will experience some symptoms of withdrawal when they stop using nicotine.1 Symptoms of smoker’s flu can be even more prominent if you quit cold turkey. Withdrawal symptoms, including smoker’s flu, tend to peak within one week of quitting but can linger for up to a month.
