Transcript of Tobacco

Cigarettes are bullies.
What happens when I quit?
According to http:/betobaccofree.hhs.gov, tobacco and nicotine are addictive like alcohol, cocaine, and heroine. When you stop smoking or cut back your tobaccoo use, you will experiance withdrawal. when going through withdrawal you may experience...
This up and down cycle repeats over and over, leading to addictions. addiction keeps people smoking even when they want to quit.

When you use tobacco products, nicotine is quickly absorbed into your blood stream. Within 10 seconds of entering your body, the nicotine enters your brain. It causes the brain to release adrenaline,creating a buzz of pleasure and energy.
The buzz fades quickly, and leaves you feeling tired, a little down, and wanting the buzz again. This feeling makes you light up the next cigarette. Since your body is able to build up a high tolerance to nicotine, you'll need to smoke more and more cigarettes in order to get the nicotine's pleasurable affects and prevent withdrawal symptoms.
Effects on the Body
Nicotine, found in all tobacco products, is a highly addictive drug that acts in the brain and throughout the body. Dip and chew tobacco contains more nicotine then cigarettes. Holding an average sized dip, in your mouth for thirty minutes can give you as much nicotine as smoking three cigarettes.
Why are cigarettes addictive?
Cigarette makers know that nicotine addiction helps sell their products. Cigarettes today deliver more nicotine more quickly then ever before. Tobacco companies also use additives and chemicals to make them more addictive.
One last note...
Smoking kills.
And if you're killed you have lost an important part of your life.
