CIGARETTE SMOKING.

Lots of people smoke. Why? When can they quit to smoke? What is a cigarette?

The cigarette is a paper cylinder containing chopped and processed tobacco leaves. Not always or not only wraps the tobacco; it may contain other plant products, including psychotropic substances such as cannabis inflorescences, cloves such as Indonesian and more, such as cigarettes, generally based on corn, as well as various spices and aromatic herbs such as mint and cinnamon.

Cigarette smoking is the most common method of taking nicotine, the psychoactive component of tobacco. Nicotine reaches the brain within 10 seconds and enters your body. It causes the brain to release adrenaline and this causes some pleasure and energy. When people don’t smoke they may have withdrawal symptoms, for example; feeling down or sad, having troubles sleeping, feeling irritable.

Smoking can be active (first-hand, that is, those who smoke), passive (those who “breathe” the smoke, or second-hand) and third-hand, when the smell remains on the walls, clothes, etc.

What is the difference between a cigar and a cigarette?

 The cigarette differs from the cigar for its smaller size, for the different treatment to which the tobacco leaves that compose it are subjected, for the white paper that wraps it. The cigar wrap is generally created by rolling whole tobacco leaves. it causes a strong addiction in the subject who consumes it, stimulating the “reward system” of the brain.

Studies show that one of the first steps  to quitting is to learn why you feel like using tobacco. Then you can think about the reasons you want to quit.
