What does nicotine do to the body

Dependence on cigarettes is formed very quickly, but unnoticed. Heavy smokers easily lie to themselves that they can quit at any time. However, faced with the necessity of quitting Smoking they feel so strong "breaking", that quickly returns to his habit, and few people understand why this is happening.

Nicotine is an agonist of acetylcholine. In the Central nervous system it is embedded in nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, replacing the substance, disrupting the transmission of impulses from the CNS to peripheral nerve endings and muscles.

In humans there are several types of N-acetylcholine receptors, but is most sensitive to nicotine dopamine. Their stimulation leads to the release into the blood of neurotransmitters:

  • dopamine;
  • serotonin;
  • glutamine;
  • adrenaline;
  • norepinephrine.

This causes a temporary increase in mood and activity, spur thinking and reaction speed, gives a burst of energy. However, the receptor quickly oversaturated and no longer respond to stimulation. To call again the same feeling, the smoker is forced to use large doses of nicotine and to do it more often. Thus is formed the dependence.

It would seem that the problem is small, you can use a cigarette to improve the tone when you need faster to achieve any results, but in this case, the harm of nicotine to the body is still huge. As with all psychotropic substances, the problem lies in serious side effects. They can be divided into two groups:

  • directly related to nicotine;
  • related to the method of its introduction into the body (cigarettes, hookah, vapes, LICs, etc.).

Nicotine entering the body, quickly spreading through the blood. After 7 seconds it is manifested in various organs and tissues. Thanks to the release of adrenaline and noradrenaline, the body reaches a state of stress – increased readiness for rapid reaction. This is manifested in:

  • the palpitations;
  • the increase in blood pressure;
  • the constriction and spasm of blood vessels;
  • the decrease in appetite;
  • increase motility of the colon.

It turns out that the smoker in addition to the psychological stress from the daily problems daily experienced by 10-20 episodes of stress (depending on the number of cigarettes smoked). Of course, his cardiovascular system is overloaded and therefore wears out much faster than non-smokers.

Constant spasms of blood vessels lead to circulatory disorders of all internal organs. They are continuously in a state of hypoxia – lack of oxygen. And due to the deterioration of the outflow of blood in the bodies accumulate breakdown products of nicotine, slowly poisoning them.

Everything described also applies to the glands of internal secretion. By long-term Smoking there are changes in the work:
