Nicotine Addiction in Youth
E-Cigarettes were invented in USA
Nicotine in tobacco is a powerful chemical that can change the mood and might help people relax but then they discover that they cannot relax without using tobacco.
Most of the young people who start smoking tobacco, do so with the intention to just try it a couple of times with a sense of adventure or with the intention to appear “cool” among their friends. However, many of these young individuals get hooked to smoking. Preteen is the riskiest period when people often start smoking. It is not only risky because people are open to trying new things but because medical evidence suggests that this is the notorious phase in life when teenagers will become nicotine dependent. The symptoms of alcohol dependence start appearing soon after the first try smoking. The daily smoking habit may start 2 to 3 years after the first try tobacco.
Cigarettes are masterfully engineered to release almost 7000 chemicals quickly to increase the risk of addiction.
