What cigarettes contain and how it’s controlling you?
Cigarette contains around 40 known cancer-causing compounds, including nicotine, tar and carbon monoxide. Nicotine is the highly addictive stimulant drug that makes you want to smoke again. When you puff on a cigarette, your brain gets a blast of nicotine within seconds; not even an injection could work that fast.
Cigarette carvings can kick in whenever your brain notices a shortfall of drug. Carvings can also start whenever you get a “cue” that it’s time to smoke. Smoking is both physically and mentally addictive.
