Smoking or breathing in smoke creates addiction over time.
The main addictive substance in tobacco is nicotine. It creates addiction not only physically, but also with its psychological and social aspects. Withdrawal symptoms occur when a person does not smoke. Various tests have been developed to measure the level of smoking addiction. The most commonly used is the “Fagerström test.” Each cigarette contains more than 4,000 chemicals that are toxic, irritating, carcinogenic or facilitate the emergence of cancer for the body. At least 81 of these cause cancer. Smoking increases the risk of developing cancers of the mouth, tongue, pharynx, larynx, salivary gland, gums, esophagus, stomach, liver, pancreas, intestine, anus, kidney, bladder, penis, cervix and blood, especially lung cancer.
In fact, everyone is born as a cigarette addict candidate. The process that leads a person to cigarette addiction is as follows; Until we try the first cigarette at the age of 13-15, approximately 80 thousand visual-emotional records that give the feeling that smoking is a positive thing accumulate in our subconscious. In other words, a young person tries the first cigarette with exactly 80 thousand expectations and faith. The first try may often fail to meet expectations, with bad taste and a choking feeling. It is tried over and over again with the curiosity of “why didn’t I enjoy it”. After becoming addicted to nicotine, the faulty virus program in your subconscious is activated. With the illusion of 7-8 seconds created by the ingestion of nicotine, the feeling that the expectations are real begins to emerge. When this illusion is placed in all areas of life, it becomes the person’s “false reality” and turns into a vicious circle. The formation mechanism of smoking addiction is like this.
