Why do people smoke cigarettes?
Most people who smoke tobacco start during their teenage years or as a young adult. There are many reasons why a person starts to smoke. For some it’s a way to rebel against their parents, a way to assert themselves. Others may be affected by “peer pressure”, to them smoking may appear adult or cool. It’s very easy to become addicted to smoking because of the nicotine found in all tobacco products.
Being dependent on the nicotine means that your body relies on a regular supply of nicotine to feel comfortable. If the supply becomes irregular or there is a long gap between cigarettes, your body will start to experience withdrawal symptoms.
Withdrawal symptoms include: craving, irritable, feeling uneasy or anxious, restless with poor concentration.
