Over time, this treatment can be used to reduce nicotine intake and help to quit smoking. This inhalator can also be used at times when smoking is not possible as a replacement.
What causes nicotine addiction:Nicotine addiction is caused when smoking tobacco and it is inhaled into the lungs. From there, the tobacco, which contains nicotine, goes through the lungs and around the body, up into the brain. The brain responds by releasing a neurotransmitter which causes a mood change and the feeling of pleasure. This neurotransmitter is called dopamine. Dopamine is then relied upon to deliver this feeling and as a result, causing cravings. Cravings can be triggered by actions and events due to the routine. Knowing what these triggers are can be a big help when it comes to quitting smoking.
