Why smoking creates so strong dependence and whether it is real in general – to leave off smoking?

Principle of formation of nicotine addiction

The same principle is the cornerstone of any dependence. All substances causing dependence in the person have psychoactive properties. Let's take, for example, nicotine. The first several minutes after the smoked cigarette at the person the mood is lightened, he feels inflow of cheerfulness and forces. At first the person smokes with only that purpose again to feel these pleasant emotions. However soon similar effect of nicotine on an organism stops. When the person understands it, he tries to refuse cigarettes, but very quickly understands that it is not able to be made. He was already involved in this process and without cigarette feels defective. It means that the first degree of dependence on nicotine – psychological – came.

The person continues to smoke, but through certain time makes one more attempt to refuse smoking. However, having spent some time without cigarettes, the smoker finds out that lack of nicotine delivers to it not only psychological discomfort, but also the most real physical indisposition. The person begins to test an abstinence syndrome which symptoms treat:

  • tremor of hands and chin;
  • nausea, and sometimes even vomiting;
  • bystry fatigue and feeling of weakness;
  • neurologic disturbances, such as acrimony or sleep disorder.

At the same time all indispositions can be eliminated easily by means of only one smoked cigarettes. Needless to say that in a similar situation to refuse cigarettes only at involvement of will power it is quite problematic.

If the smoker begins to test withdrawal pains as a result of refusal of smoking, means there came the following stage of dependence on nicotine – physical.

Most of smokers prefer to deceive themselves, assuring that nicotine is harmless to an organism. But actually nicotine becomes a component of all processes proceeding in an organism soon. If the organism of the smoker got used to receive every day a certain dose of nicotine, then without receiving it, he begins to test a strong indisposition. But at the same time every day receiving a certain dose of nicotine, the smoker methodically kills himself, filling the organism with harmful and toxic substances. A peculiar vicious circle turns out. Recently for the purpose of simplification of disaccustoming from smoking the set of additional methods was developed. The nicotinic plaster is considered one of the most effective.

Mechanism of action of a nicotinic plaster

The mechanism of action of a nicotinic plaster is quite simple. Each plaster contains a certain dose of nicotine which gets through skin pores into the smoker's organism, helping it to cope with an abstinence syndrome. According to reviews, the nicotinic plaster helps to cope not only with physiological dependence, but also with psychological, but only if the person really aims to get rid of this addiction.

The plaster is pasted on a certain body part for the term specified in the instruction. Every day the plaster needs to be pasted on different body parts. On average it is pasted for 10-15 hours, and during this time the nicotinic plaster gives to an organism approximately so much nicotine how many contains in one pack of cigarettes. At the same time if the smoker begins to smoke a cigarette, then can feel an indisposition and dizziness because of nicotine overdose.

Treatment term a nicotinic plaster, according to reviews, makes 3-4 months. And, begin treatment with use of the plasters containing high doses of nicotine gradually changing for plasters with a smaller dosage.

After absorption of nicotine in blood it remains in an organism for about six hours. Nicotine with urine, a stake and air is removed. As the nicotine which is contained in a nicotinic plaster is practically not connected with proteins of a blood plasma, does not make such negative impact on an organism as the nicotine received by means of the smoked cigarette.

According to reviews, the nicotinic plaster can act on an extent of sixteen hours then its action becomes weaker. It is made specially as during sleep the person does not need the next dose of nicotine.
