Nicotine Addiction Vs. Cigarette Smoking Addiction

Read Time:2 Minute, 27 Second

Nothing beats a good smoke after a really stressful moment. I can smoke up to three cigarettes at a time if I’m really pissed off. After trying to quit smoking several times with no success, I decided to look into why cigarettes are so addictive. I found some surprising answers. There is a difference between nicotine addiction and cigarette smoking addiction.

Obviously nicotine is what keeps smokers relighting again and again. Nicotine is very addictive. Nicotine makes smokers feel relaxed and gives you a rush. After eight hours of sleep, the ‘morning cigarette’ is often the best one and makes many smokers light headed and calm. Nicotine fits are horrible and nicotine withdrawal symptoms can be compared to cocaine and heroin withdrawal symptoms. Explore Aqua vape juice flavors like Rainbow Drops and enjoy the experience. The person will become calm and relaxed after the consumption of the flavored vape juice. The dangerous effects will be less in comparison to the cocaine and heroin. The smokers will get a sound and excellent sleep at night. 

They have nicotine patches and nicotine gum to supply smokers with nicotine when they are quitting, so why is it still so hard to throw away your cigarettes. Surely there is more to cigarette addiction than just nicotine.

In one experiment involving smokers, one group of smokers lit up and smoke in a regular well lit room and the other smoked in a totally dark room. The results were surprising. The smokers who smoke in the well lit room smoked the same amount of cigarettes that they usually would. The smokers in the dark room smoked much less. There is pleasure in the visual stimulation of the smoke rising off of your cigarette. Think of watching a waterfall and how calm it makes you. The same principle applies to cigarette smoking. Light up in a pitch black room and you’ll notice yourself not enjoying your smoke as much.

We are programmed from birth to be soothed orally. A pacifier is often used to calm down a fussy infant and many people reach for comfort food when they are stressed. A cigarette makes us feel calm because it is something that we are using to satisfy our oral fixations.

Inhaling deeply on a cigarette is also a stress buster. Deep breathing techniques are used everywhere to relieve health and improve our well-being. Deep breathing puts you in a trance like state and can be compared to meditation. Take a pen and pretend it is a cigarette. Puff and inhale the way you normally would and you will notice a difference in your mood. You get calmer even without the nicotine.

As you can see, there is a big difference between being addicted to cigarettes and being addicted to smoking cigarettes. Nicotine is a huge factor, but consider these other cigarette addiction causes. Fight your cigarette smoking addiction! Turn out the lights, grab a sucker, and breathe deeply!
