What causes people to smoke? When we polled people, we learned that smoking boosts stamina, helps us to stay awake for longer while driving, while under stress at work, and so on. Some people believe that smoking makes them more alert and concentrated, as well as relaxes them. Research shows that smoking increases dopamine levels in the brain, increasing feelings of satisfaction and pleasure, and also strengthens the urge to keep smoking.
Majority of smokers began when they were teenagers. Those who have smoking friends and/or parents are more likely to begin smoking earlier than those who don’t. Research shows that genetic factors also play a major role in whether or not a person becomes addicted to nicotine. Also, people who are going through a difficult work/life process, have lost a loved one, or have been affected by social groups/media, etc.
Nicotine, which is highly addictive, is the main component of cigarettes. Nicotine has a wide range of effects on the body, including the brain. Within 10 seconds, nicotine enters your bloodstream and reaches your brain. It causes the brain to release adrenaline, which produces a pleasant and energetic buzz. However, the buzz dissipates quickly. Then you may feel tired or depressed, and you may crave that buzz again; this is how nicotine addiction develops.
Behind feeling of pleasure, Smoking has numerous negative effects on the body, including eye vision, lungs, brain, heart, cavity and gums, immune system, fertility, sex life, and skin.

Our goal is to learn why and how you become addicted to smoking, as well as how smoking negatively affects your entire body and life, as well as your family environment, especially when you have kids around you.
Nearly 70% of smokers claim they want to quit smoking when they acknowledge the benefit of quitting smoking. But the success rate of quitting smoking without assistance is as low as 3-5 percent. Since nicotine withdrawal symptoms include unpleasant physical and emotional responses such as depression, frustration, insomnia, or anxiety, exhaustion, restlessness, and irritability, Withdrawal symptoms are the main reason for de-motivation for quitters.
