If you have ever tried to quit smoking then you don’t need telling that nicotine is a highly addictive drug and very fast acting. When a smoker inhales cigarette smoke then the nicotine in the smoke enters the bloodstream within 10 seconds affecting their brain within 12 seconds. No wonder it is so hard to quit smoking and stop craving nicotine.
This craving effect is known as Nicotine Withdrawal Symptom and it is one of the main reasons people are unable to quit smoking and eventually fail. 100ml vape juice
Nicotine has many profound effects on the body which include increasing the heart rate, raising the blood pressure and speeding up the metabolism. Nicotine also can have differing effects on mood and behaviour.
Nicotine itself is not carcinogenic (cancer causing). It is actually the tar and toxins within a cigarette that can cause cancer along with other serious diseases.
NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy) has been developed to try to help people who are quitting smoking to temporarily replace the nicotine that their body is expecting and so help to reduce cravings without causing any of the harmful side effects that smoking and inhaling tar and toxins produce.
Nicotine gum gives your body nicotine on demand. As soon as you feel the cravings coming on then chewing a piece of nicotine gum can help reduce them and so stave off reaching for that cigarette. The chew-rest-chew technique seems most successful for this method of NRT. This is where you hold the gum in your cheek in between chewing, otherwise and excess nicotine you swallow is wasted.
Nicotine patches are different from gum because they just give a very small constant supply of nicotine in a trickle down effect. They can be worn 24 hours a day if required which is very useful if you had the habit of getting up in the night for a smoke.
Home lung detox has been used by thousands of people around the world to successfully quit smoking. A lung detox works in two ways. The replacement side is done by using a freely available vitamin called Niacin which has been proven to combat the nicotine cravings. Then, using simple daily exercises, tar and toxins that are possibly going to remain present in the lung tissue for many years even after quitting smoking, are removed much quicker than if they were left to the body to do this alone.
