  • Cigarettes contain over 4,000 chemicals including arsenic, paint stripper and at least 60 carcinogens.
  • Smoking adversely affects every organ system in the body.
  • Most smoking related deaths are from lung and heart diseases.
  • Nicotine acts on cholinergic and mesolimbic (dopaminergic) central nervous system pathways, (it releases “feel good” chemicals).
  • Repeat exposure to nicotine causes neuro-adaptation often resulting in tolerance; this leads to more smoking for the same pleasurable effect and to avoid withdrawal- basically smoking cigarettes affects you the same way as heroin.
  • Health benefits start within 24 hours of stopping smoking.
