Effects of smoking
The truth about what nicotine does to your brain
You know that smoking is bad for you – but you might be surprised to learn how it affects your body and just how damaging it can be.
Cigarettes contain more than 4,000 chemicals, but the thing that makes smoking pleasurable and keeps you hooked is nicotine.
A naturally occurring chemical found in the tobacco plant, nicotine has a powerful effect on the brain when smoked, and it’s this that makes cigarettes addictive.
Depriving yourself of nicotine - by reducing how much you smoke or quitting altogether - can result in withdrawal symptoms and intense cravings. It’s these cravings that weaken your resolve and can see you reaching for another cigarette.
