Nicotine Addiction – Nicotine is a chemical found in tobacco products such as cigarettes, e-liquid for vaporizers, and chewing or smokeless tobacco. Nicotine is legal for those who are of age, but can and is an addictive drug. It is an additive drug that causes the brain to change and moods to be altered. The moods are temporarily pleasing. To recreate that feeling many people continue to smoke or use smokeless tobacco. This is a vicious cycle as the nicotine becomes necessary to get through the day. In fact, many smokers or those who use smokeless tobacco cannot go an entire day or even an entire hour without nicotine in some form. While nicotine treatments exist over the counter, the addiction sometimes becomes too great to handle alone.

Nicotine is so addictive because it causes a rush of adrenaline which is absorbed into the bloodstream or is inhaled and then triggers dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is the ‘happy’ chemical for the brain. This is why nicotine is often used more in stressful situations. However, many daily users learn to function only with nicotine in their system. Heavy users may reach for a form of nicotine upon waking and crave more at certain times of day. This is all due to nicotine changing the way the brain functions.

If you are a heavy nicotine user who has tried several times to quit through the use of over the counter or even prescription products and failed, it may be time for different type of help.
