The Truth About Smoking Pleasure

As soon as we stub out a cigarette, the level of nicotine in the bloodstream begins to drop, indicating the start of nicotine withdrawal. Within a half hour, we’re thinking about the next cigarette, and by the one-hour mark, most smokers are edgy and uncomfortable.
We light a cigarette and within a few puffs, the discomforts frill up. Chemically, we’ve gotten that dopamine rush that comes when nicotine bestows to receptors in our brains. The restless tension is gone and we’re back to feeling comfortable. But this comfort does not last long and we start craving for another round of cigar. It won’t last long, though, because within a half hour to an hour, the process will repeat itself. This is the reason for chain smoking by any smoker. It is this pattern of nicotine depletion and replenishment in the bloodstream that we have learned to think of as “smoking pleasure.”
Over time, that physical need, which is all about compulsion, gets attached to every emotion and event in our lives. And like Pavlov’s dogs, we learn to crave a cigarette when difficult emotions come, even if the nicotine level in our bloodstream is topped off. Smoking has become our “friend,” our “companion” in times of stress and tension peeps in our day to day life
