always try to have good thoughts about yourself and do not give in to peer pressure. and not pressured into feeling that it will make you feel better because it can kill you easily.
-a drug that is used in cigarettes and can be inhaled in many different ways.
how to get addicted??? (which you shouldn't do)
-it is both a stimulant and a depressant
-the stimulant is that it releases epinephrine (hormone) which stimulates the central nervous system and makes you feel pleasure or a "kick"
-the depressant part of it is that the hormone endorphin which makes pain. the stimulation then is replaced with with a drop in mood and
fatigue which leads the smoker to seek more nicotine. this cycle leads to chronic tobacco use and addiction.

-it can lead to heart attacks and strokes because it thickens or narrows the blood vessels

how to get addicted??? (which again you should not do)

-you then might crave nicotine or a cigarette
- the more you smoke or inhale nicotine the more you need to feel good again
soon the body craves nicotine to feel "normal"
