Those who are addicted to the practice of smoking are fully aware of the fact that how difficult it is to win the war of smoke. Many amongst us daily go through the phrase of “quit smoking” in newspapers and various TV channels, but a few of us know that not many people are victorious to conquer over their urge for smoking. Smokers don’t like to be associated with the word ‘addicted’ but this is what smoking is. We will have a look behind the reasons for this.
The practice of smoking gives pleasure to the people as it stimulates the mind and leaves a soothing effect. This relaxing feeling is so much comforting that people don’t want to leave it at all. The factor behind this pleasure is the presence of nicotine in cigarettes, that generates a fluid like dopamine and other neurochemicals which when runs through the channels of brain, imparts a pleasing effect. Researches have shown that inhaling tobacco smoke is one of the fastest ways to send nicotine to brain.
Some other researches have also indicated the signs of different levels of addiction to nicotine in different people. Many people never tend to smoke as they don’t derive any pleasure from smoking. Likewise some youngsters smoke occasionally, but never develop a habit to smoke regularly. However some of the people at a certain point develop an addiction and start smoking extensively everyday and all day long. They further more think that smoking is something which is indispensable for their survival. Nevertheless drug producers are constantly seeking for latest treatments and cures to help smokers to quit this evil habit.
Researchers are still striving to find the answer to the unknown fact that why some people get addicted to smoking and the rest of them don’t. However the perpetrator seems to be the gene-encoded enzyme that clears the nicotine from the bloodstreams more quickly from some people and they need to fill the gap, thus they smoke to gather more nicotine.
Apart from that advancements in the field of medicine are playing a vital role to help smokers. Medicines that work as a disguise for nicotine are sent to the brain’s receptors, thus killing the urge for smoke among the smokers.
