When you use tobacco products, nicotine is quickly absorbed into your bloodstream. Within 10 seconds of entering your body, the nicotine reaches your brain. It causes the brain to release adrenaline, creating a buzz of pleasure and energy. When someone smokes, it will often lead to changes in their brain and nervous system. These are real physical differences… The brain will now be dependent on the nicotine. Nicotine alters the balance of two chemicals, called dopamine and noradrenaline, in your brain. When nicotine changes the level of these chemicals, your mood & concentration levels change. Many smokers find this enjoyable. When you inhale the nicotine, it immediately rushes into your brain, where it produces feelings of pleasure & reduces stress and anxiety.
