Nicotine Dependence

Nicotine Dependence

The nicotine, found in cigarettesi, is a stimulant. Twenty seconds after taking a breath from a cigarette, the nicotine first goes to the lung, then to the blood, then to the brain and other organs. Nicotine molecules are bound to acetyl-choline receptors in nerve cells. Nicotinine induces dopamin release from the vesicles by way of the signals origating from cell nucleus. Brain, secretes dopamin as a physiologic function during the activites such as listening to music, doing sports, praying, etc. providing the individual enjoy his life. When addictive substances such as cigarettes are used, the brain stops naturally dopamine production. The person feels well due to the release of more dopamine under the influence of the substance used. He says, "Oh, it's a good life." When not smoking, the person feels bad due to lack of dopamine, wants to smoke.

During withdrawal syndrome; that is when smoking is not done, nicotine molecules do not go to brain and the dopamine release is reduced accordingly. Person is induced with smoking will. Nicotine wastes accumulate in the brain fat tissue. These wastes were seen in blood slowly and they create a feeling of smoking although not really.
