Although nicotine is the substance that makes smokers dependent on cigarettes, it is often falsely accused of many evils. In addition, it not only has disadvantages, but is often a more effective way of giving up smoking.
What is nicotine?
Nicotine is a substance that occurs naturally in tobacco leaves. It acts directly on the brain: it is called a psychoactive substance. In fact, it is responsible for our tobacco addiction because it gives us a feeling of relaxation, stimulates us intellectually and acts as an appetite suppressant. It also affects our cardiovascular and respiratory systems by raising our blood pressure.
Why, paradoxically, can nicotine help us quit smoking?
At first sight nicotine is neither harmful nor carcinogenic. It is the 4,000 toxic substances in the cigarette that accompany it. These include ammonia, which enables the body to absorb the nicotine contained in the cigarette more quickly.
It is therefore important to see nicotine in a positive light, especially if you want to stop smoking. Nicotine taken in the form of patches, E-liquid or chewing gum increases the chances of successfully quitting smoking. Why is this so?
Because it enables us to better control the craving for cigarettes. In fact, vaporizing an E-liquid to 0 mg can be counterproductive if we are used to smoking 1 pack a day, as the nicotine deficiency is quickly felt. One piece of advice: Avoid underdosing your E-fluids nicotine. You could accumulate a certain amount of frustration and start smoking again to compensate for your lack.
