How we will work with you

Why do people smoke cigarettes?

Most people who smoke tobacco start during their teenage years or as a young adult.  There are many reasons why a person starts to smoke.  For some it’s a way to rebel against their parents, a way to assert themselves.  Others may be affected by “peer pressure”, to them smoking may appear adult or cool.  It’s very easy to become addicted to smoking because of the nicotine found in all tobacco products.

Being dependent on the nicotine means that your body relies on a regular supply of nicotine to feel comfortable.  If the supply becomes irregular or there is a long gap between cigarettes, your body will start to experience withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal symptoms include: craving, irritable, feeling uneasy or anxious, restless with poor concentration.

The facts

  • Nicotine is a chemical present in all tobacco products, it is highly addictive.
  • When you smoke it takes 6-10 seconds for the nicotine to reach your brain.
  • Nicotine is a stimulant, so speeds up the person's reaction time and increases their focus.
  • Abstinence from smoking provokes withdrawal symptoms, ranging in intensity depending on the length of abstinence.
  • Smokers report enjoying the ritual of smoking, therefore, it becomes a behavioural habit.
  • Smoking relieves the withdrawal symptoms, prompting a feeling of pleasure.
