To smoke tobacco has important compensations for all the consumers. The tobacco produces, mainly through the inhaled nicotine, stimulation of the adrenalin, which influences in the form in which the foods are processed, sanguineous pressure and stimulates the cardiac frequency. Also the nicotine produces dopamine, it increases the memory and effectiveness in smokers, and produces to please through same circuit that the heroin or cocaine. The same inhalation of smoke is relajante and an accepted gesture socially. Also, paradoxicalally, it seems that the nicotine (and the dopamine) can inhibit the Alzheimer and would improve the allergic asthma (when increasing the production of adrenalin of momentary way). Then, although it has indirect effect, if it produces to please and it makes the most effective consumer intellectually why to leave it?
Syndrome of abstinence from the nicotine
Not to undergo the effects of the retirement of a as addictive substance as the nicotine can produce that the smokers do not try to leave the habit, or who fall. However, the certain thing is that the physical symptoms are slight and reach the tip to the 2 or 3 days to leave the tobacco, sending little by little. They include among others:
I am annoying, confusion, irritability, anxiety, problems of concentration, jaquecas.
Depression, frustration, impatience, wrath, restlessness and sensation of boredom.
Problems of dream, nightmares, fatigue.
Constipation, gain of appetite and weight, cough, dryness of mouth, oppression in the chest.
To also smoke brings about the elimination of the body (greater diuresis induced by the nicotine, increase of the basal metabolism, faster and greater sanguineous circulation estrésde organs like kidneys and liver) of medecines, reason why if some is being consumed and it is stopped smoking, it is necessary to adapt the doses, since the effects will be majors.
To die to smoke: health, first reason
Two of each three smokers can develop upheavals that finish in death and serious diseases, a good reason to leave the habit. The great smokers who do not develop diseases even have a low quality of life after years. Some of the proven problems that the tobacco causes are:
Cancer, not only of lung but of mouth, larynx, throat, cervix and leucemias.
Pulmonary problems, grouped in which EPOC is called (Enfermedad Pulmonar Obstructiva Crónica), that includes enfisema and pulmonía chronic in people of only 40 years of age.
Circulatory attacks to the heart and problems: it is already the first cause of death in the majority of countries and to smoke triples the possibility of suffering it in early ages. In addition it narrows the blood vessels, preventing the correct irrigation and favoring attacks and I spill cerebral.
Premature blindness, wrinkles in the skin, loss of teeth and problems of encías.
The women smokers less live an average on 14.5 years and the men 13.5 who the nonsmokers, being in addition the previous years to the death to bad quality of health.
Improvement in the daily life, another reason
Aesthetic: the loss of dental pieces, the evil breath, and badly scent of clothes.
Respect to the children, much more sensible to the smoke of the tobacco. By all means also it is a little healthful gesture to smoke in the presence of another adult, especially women, much more sensible for the purposes of the smoke.
Social acceptance and in places public, as well as in the transport. Every time less in the job is accepted, and is a problem in houses of nonsmokers.
Economy: a package of daily tobacco to Spanish price costs an average of 3,50€. If 400 to the year are consumed (365 days, more exits) the cost € gives the friolera of 1,400 annual. The smokers become ill most frequently and usually use caramels or medecines to alleviate the mouth, and so to speak of 2.000€ annual in tobacco it is an estimation to the loss.
Immediate benefits to stop smoking
In spite of the increase of weight (around four kilos), the benefits to stop to smoke already are enormous. To leave the habit before the fifty years reduces to half the risk of coronary accidents. In addition, the pulmonary capacity recovers, forces and the taste of foods.
In addition the benefits are not made hope:
20 minutes: sanguineous pressure and normal pulse.
12 hours after the abandonment: the level of carbon monoxide in blood returns to be normal.
2 weeks (time of abstinence syndrome): the circulation and the breathing improve.
1 month to 9 months: the pulmonary problems disappear and the cilia recover their function (the annoying mucosity disappears).
1 year: the danger of coronary attacks is reduced to half.
5, 10 and 15 years after the abandonment: the risk of cancer and coronary problems is reduced until reaching the levels of a person who never has smoked.
And it improves the sexual life, not only for being more resistant, or to avoid the impotence: the teeth return to be white and the body returns to request sport, and so the sensation of being attractive increases…
